How does the Turkey eVisa work?
In April 2013, the Turkish government launched an easy online visa system that issues an eVisa instead of the old “sticker visa”. Once the information and payment are submitted, the visa is emailed to the traveler and must be downloaded and printed out. The eVisa should be shown to airport and customs officials in Turkey and kept safe for the duration of the stay. The eVisa means no more going to local embassies or waiting in line at the airport to obtain a visa.
How long does it take to apply for a Turkey eVisa?
Less than 10 minutes. We will take care of the rest and shortly we will let you know the status of the application by email.

In the first step, you need to provide your personal information like name, address, passport info, and other basic info. You must also select a processing time from the mentioned above.
