If you’re traveling from South Africa to Turkey, we’ve made it easier to get your visa.

The visa application process can feel overwhelming, but it shouldn't keep you from experiencing all that Turkey has to offer. We're here to make this mandatory part of your travel prep easier.

Fill me in

With us handling your visa details, you’ll soon be strolling through the historic ruins of Ephesus, savoring fresh seafood along the coast of Fethiye, or taking in the breathtaking scenery of Pamukkale. Let’s get started.

Do South African citizens need a Turkey eVisa?

South African citizens looking to visit Turkey for tourism must apply for an eVisa before traveling to the country.

You’re eligible for a multiple-entry tourist eVisa that allows a stay of up to 30 days within a 180-day period. This eVisa is free. If you wish to stay in Turkey longer than the eVisa permits, you must apply for a residence permit. Please visit the Presidency of Migration Management website for more information on how to apply for one.

Here’s what you need to know about the Turkey eVisa.

How to get a Turkey eVisa from South Africa with us

We provide a Turkish visa service to help make the eVisa application process easier. You’ll get access to a simplified application form that’s easy to understand and fill out (it will take you less than 15 minutes).

Once you're done, one of our visa experts will review your application to ensure it’s accurately filled, which boosts your chances of visa approval.

Here’s how to apply:

  • Step 1: Enter your personal and travel details on our website or via the iVisa app.

  • Step 2: Verify that all your information is accurate. Select your preferred processing option and pay the service and visa fees with a credit or debit card, PayPal, or Venmo.

  • Step 3: Complete the application form, upload the necessary documents, and submit.

When your eVisa is approved, we’ll send it to you via email. It’s advisable to print out a copy and also save a digital copy on your mobile device before your journey to Turkey.

A handy guide to your arrival in Turkey

To help you get off to a smooth start on your trip to Turkey, we've prepared detailed guides for several major airports across the country:

  • Address: 573 Fehrsen Street, Nieuw Mucklenuck, Pretoria, South Africa
