The Turkish government launched an easy online visa system that issues an e-Visa for Indian passport holders who have any valid visa or resident permit from the US/UK/Ireland/Schengen countries.
IF you have a valid tourist visa, residence permit, work permit, or permanent residence in any of these countries.
All you have to do is fill out the this online form.
The e-Visa for Indians costs 43.70 USD, and allows you a single entry, and you may stay up to 30 days.
REMEMBER: The e-Visa is valid for 6 months so if your plans change and you don’t use your single entry, you would still have a little time to use it.
