Change to Turkish visa entry requirements

Change to Turkish visa entry requirements

Please note that after 10 April 2014, it will not be possible to get a visa on arrival in Turkey. Visitors arriving in Turkey after this date must obtain an e-visa online before travel.

The e-visa has increased to 20 USD per person but is a multiple entry visa valid for 180 days from the date of issue.

With regard to cruise passengers, the following rules apply:
-  Visitors don’t need an e-Visa if they don’t leave the ship;
-  Visitors don’t need an e-Visa if they only tour in the respective port city of Turkey. (Visitors will be given a permission by local border police authorities to enter Turkey).

But:
-  Visitors will need a visa if they want to tour beyond the respective port city of Turkey.
