iVisa tip: Traveling with a buddy and/or children? If you've included this information in your visa application, it'll be noted in the system, allowing you to breeze through immigration together with ease.

This is especially convenient for families with children. You can easily apply together by clicking ‘Add another person’ during our online process or through the iVisa app.

How long is the Turkey eVisa valid?

The validity of your Turkey eVisa depends on your nationality and can be up to 180 days with a max. stay between 30 and 90 days.

Additionally, the type of visa issued may be single- or multiple-entry, depending on your citizenship. Ultimately, it’s up to the Turkish authorities to decide what the validity of your visa will be.

Can I extend the validity of my Turkey eVisa?

If your Turkish eVisa expires while you are outside the country, you can simply submit a new online application.

However, if you wish to extend your stay while in Turkey, we advise that you apply for a visa extension at the local immigration office or police station.

Officials will assess your reasons for an extension and issue you a new visa depending on your nationality, travel purpose, and other factors.

Turkey eVisa: Requirements and documents needed

To apply for the Turkish eVisa, you only have to submit the following documents and info:

  • A copy of your passport with a minimum validity of 60 days beyond the departure date from Turkey. The passport should be in good condition and have two blank pages for entry and exit stamps.

  • A valid email address to send you the confirmation of your approved eVisa.

  • Payment method such as a debit or credit card, to pay the visa and processing fees.

iVisa tip: Our travel report recommends having digital copies of all required documents (like your passport and flight confirmation) ready before you start the application. This saves you time and simplifies the process!

How to apply for the Turkey eVisa online with us

We understand that the visa application process on the Turkish government website can be confusing. iVisa allows you to complete your application in just 10 minutes and three easy steps:

  • Step 1: Fill out the application form with your personal details, such as your name, last name, passport number, contact info, and trip details. It's essential to ensure that all your personal information matches your identity document.

It's important to know that cruise passengers who want to visit coastal cities or neighboring provinces for vacation purposes don't need a Turkish visa, provided that their stay doesn’t exceed 72 hours.

Differences between the Turkey eVisa and Turkey Embassy Visa

Understanding the differences between Turkey's eVisa and Embassy Visa is key to a smooth travel experience:

  • No trips to the embassy required; it’s all online!

  • Electronically linked to your passport.

Turkey Embassy Visa: Involves a more detailed application and can take a bit longer to process (generally between 3 and 14 days).

  • Typically requires a short interview at the Turkish Embassy or Consulate.
  • More extensive requirements, such as a detailed itinerary, proof of enough funds, and travel insurance.
  • It will be placed in your passport as a sticker.

Turkey entry requirements or restrictions

Turkey has lifted all COVID-19 restrictions. This means travelers coming to the country don't have to show proof of vaccination status or a negative PCR test.

Just keep in mind that things can change fast, so make sure to check for any updates on travel before you head out on your trip from the Turkey CDC page.
