If Turkish wants to travel to Kuwait, they are no longer required to go to the embassy for a tourism or business visa. Turkish, including 50 nationalities can apply through the internet, thanks to iVisa. The evisa will be sent via email within 12 hours.
Turkish needs to check if they are qualified prior to application. This can be accomplished through iVisa’s website by clicking on the Visa Checker. Simply follow the steps to know if you are qualified. You can apply as soon as you found out that you are eligible.
What are the requirements?
iVisa will request some information and documentation to process your application. You only need to provide few documents prior the application process. Here is a list of requirements for Turkish:
Valid passport – chances are you already have one. Please do check its expiry date to make sure that is still valid.
Digital copy of your passport – the most important part is the information page, but you should go ahead and scan the entire booklet.
Valid e-mail address – electronic visas are linked to passports digitally, and so will the visa provided by iVisa. Still, you need to print out a copy before departure, which is why iVisa will send you one via e-mail in PDF format.
GCC residence card – this applies only to applicants from the other countries that are a part of Gulf Cooperation Council (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.) At the same time, the applicants from the GCC must work in specific fields. You can find all of them on iVisa’s website.
Mode of payment – before submitting the application, you will be asked to pay the service fee using a credit/debit card or a PayPal account.
How to apply?
There is no need for Turkish to print out and fill in the form by hand because iVisa uses an online form. Within 10 minutes, you can complete everything. Additionally, iVisa’s customer support can take your call anytime, in case you need assistance.
You will be inputting your personal information just like with any other form in the first step. You will also need to select the processing time and decide the time it will take for you to receive your visa. As expected, the fee is higher if you want it faster. As for that, iVisa gives you three selections:
Standard processing – you can go for this option if you are in no hurry. It takes three business days for your application to be processed for just $20.
Rush processing– for $60, this option will have your visa ready in just 2 business days.
Super rush processing – you can select this option if you want to be on a plane to Kuwait on the next day. Your application will be processed within just 12 hours for $80.
Take note that Kuwait’s weekend differs from most countries. Their weekends are on Fridays and Saturdays, so Turkish should take that into consideration when applying.
You need to review all the information and make the payment in second step. It is crucial to fill in the form as accurately as possible. Corrections are impossible to make after your application is processed.
The third phase is uploading some documents like the ones previously mentioned. As case to case basis, Turkish may be asked to provide additional documents.
As you can see, getting a Kuwait electronic visa is super easy. The document is valid for only 30 days, so you need to leave for Kuwait before the 30-day period expires. Also, Turkish is permitted to stay in Kuwait for maximum 90 days and have a single entry.
