Turkey is open for international travel and it's one of the top destinations in the world. Millions of travelers come to this country every year, whether for tourism or business, to enjoy all that Turkey has to offer.

To enter Turkey, you will need to apply for a Turkey visa. Depending on your nationality, and individual circumstances, you'll be allowed to stay in Turkey between 30 to 90 days using this travel authorization.

Below we'll explain everything you need to know about the Turkey visa and how to get it using our completely online Turkish visa application process. We'll go over the requirements, validity, step-by-step process, and fees. We want to offer you thorough information so your Turkey online visa process is smooth and hassle-free, that way you'll have more time to plan a successful trip to this amazing country.

What is the Turkey visa?

It is an electronic travel authorization that grants entry into Turkey to citizens from over 100 countries. On other internet sites, you can find it as Turkey e Visa. This is because it is electronically linked to the applicant's passport, instead of being stamped in it.

The Turkey Visa or e Visa is valid for up to 180 days after arrival. Visitors will be able to use it for short business or tourism trips that don't exceed 90 days in Total. However, foreign affairs officials reserve the right to modify the amount of time each visitor is allowed to stay. This will depend on nationality and any additional requirements decided by the Turkish government.

Turkey Visa - Everything you need to know

Applying for your Turkish e Visa, a mandatory travel authorization that you'll need, is extremely straightforward with iVisa.com. The whole process is done fully online and in less than 15 minutes, and without visiting a Turkish mission abroad. Once you gather all the necessary documents, you'll be ready to get your visa in no time.

How does a Turkey e Visa work?

The Turkish visa application is 100% online and the Turkish e Visas are issued electronically by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Turkey.

Travelers, travel agents, airlines, and specialist service providers like us are allowed to use the Turkey eVisa system to process them. We enter the visa applicant's information into the Turkey eVisa system and upload the required documents. After that, the Turkish ministry checks the applicant's details and grants or rejects the visa application. Once the visa is approved, we send it to the applicant in PDF format.

Upon arrival, the immigration officials can confirm that your passport is electronically linked to a valid Turkey eVisa. However, we still recommend that you bring a hard copy with you, as an extra precaution.

Turkey is a country that has a lot of history, and the people there are very proud of it, which is why Turkey receives a lot of visitors each year. If you want to go there as well, you should know that there are plenty of places and traditions you can enjoy. The Turkish people are generally welcoming, and you will know that every single time you are offered a cup of tea. Before you leave, there are some rules you need to follow. Just like in any other country you may go to, you need to know a list of dos and don’ts. It is traveling 101. You cannot travel without knowing what you are allowed and not when you visit a new location. With that being said, here is what you need to know before going to Turkey. The first thing you need to be aware of is that you need to follow a dress code. As you may very well know, Turkey is a country mostly populated by Muslims. Even if you are a tourist, you cannot walk around wearing just about anything. There are no specific rules for men, but women should consider wearing clothes that cover the shoulders and the knees. Also, if you are a woman and you want to visit a mosque, you need to have a scarf that you can cover your head with before entering. Another rule about entering a religious site is that you cannot keep your shoes on, regardless of the gender. Speaking of restrictions, Turkish people frown upon public displays of affection. It may seem odd to you, but they do not like seeing people kissing or hugging in public. It is okay if you and your partner are holding hands, but that is just about it. However, Turkey is not a country known for its tolerance for LGBT couples, so even if it is just holding hands, they will still give you a dissatisfied glance. If you ever find yourself in Turkey during the Muslim’s month of fasting, which called Ramadan, you should avoid eating in public from dawn until dusk. You do not have to fast with them, of course, but you should at least respect their tradition. They are holding this tradition very dearly, and you do not want to show disrespect. Leaving restrictions aside, there are a whole bunch of things that you can do in Turkey that will entertain you. You cannot visit Turkey without going to one of their famous bazaars. The smell when you get there will make you want to live in one of those markets. You can find all kinds of things from souvenirs and other merchandise to spices and pastries. And the pastries are to die for. You need to try their baklava. You will never manage to replicate the recipe, no matter how much you try. When visiting bazaars or other markets, you should probably prepare your skills. Turkish people love to bargain, and if you see products that do not have a price tag on them, it means that the seller expects you to give an offer. It can be fun to bargain with a Turkish vendor, just make sure that you let him or her know that you are doing it for fun. You do not want to leave the impression that the products on sale are not worth their value. At the same time, you can expect to be ripped off once or twice. The prices will not be the same during different tours, and in Turkey, it is all about connections. However, do not take it as an insult. Treat it as experience and move on. There is no need for confrontation or anything. Your loss is not worth the conflict. Food in Turkey is absolutely delicious. The Turkish cuisine can satisfy all diets, and if you are a vegetarian, you should probably know that the people there can make any vegetable taste amazing with some olive oil and spices. When you are invited to eat with someone, it can be construed as rude to not eat everything on your plate. The thing is that Turkish meals are pretty significant, but since the food is delicious, you should not have too many issues leaving your plate clean. You will be drinking a lot of coffee and tea in Turkey, but try to avoid tap water since it does not have the best quality. Especially if you have a sensitive stomach, it is recommended that you always buy bottled water. Remember that Turkey is more than Istanbul, Ankara, and other such large cities. There are beautiful landscapes all over the country, and you should not limit yourself to the urban areas. Sure, you may not have the same facilities, but keep in mind that Turkey has mountains and sea. You can take a tour through nature and admire the beautiful scenery. If you want to lay on the beach all day, one of the tourists’ favorite is Antalya. It is a small piece of paradise where people go to have an exotic (ish) vacation. Unlike other Muslim countries, Turkey does allow alcohol drinking. The locals are not drinkers, but they are aware of the tourists. Even so, you will not find alcoholic beverages in all stores. You may have to look for a while. International hotels usually have alcohol on their bars’ shelves, but you can ask the locals where to get a beer from as well. Turkey has plenty of attractions to offer. You will have a wonderful time there. Just do not leave Turkey without visiting the famous Turkish hammams. You probably heard about the Turkish baths. It is an incredibly relaxing experience, and nobody in the world can replicate the Turkish hammam like the Turkish. Obviously. Other than that, enjoy Turkey, even if you are somewhat restricted.
