Requirements for The Turkey E-Visa
To use a Turkish e-Visa, you have to meet some requirements. The most important criteria are set out in the points below.
- You are going on a vacation or business trip
- If you are traveling with some European passports, it can be valid for at least 150 days upon entry
- You are not allowed to enter into an employment relationship with a Turkish employer in Turkey
- During your stay, you are not allowed to study at a Turkish educational institution or to complete any training at a Turkish educational institution (e.g., a technical college)
Turkish eVisa Exceptions and Situations
Under certain circumstances, you do not need a visa: If you arrive in Turkey by cruise ship, since April 11, 2014, according to the Turkish Aliens and International Protection Act, you only need a visa if you stay on land for more than 72 hours. Transit at a Turkish airport is also possible without a visa if you do not leave the airport.
Are you a truck driver, documentary filmmaker, or an archaeologist? You cannot use the e-visa and have to apply for a visa sticker in the Turkish embassy or consulate passport. You cannot apply for an online visa and must contact the embassy or consulate if you do not meet the above requirements.
Validity and A Maximum Length Of Stay
If you carefully follow all regulations, you will avoid penalties, deportation, or an entry ban. The Turkey visa is valid for 180 days from the “Visa validity start date” you enter in the application form.
You may stay in Turkey for a maximum of 90 days within these 180 days. You can spend these 90 days in a row in Turkey, but you can also leave Turkey and re-enter as long as you do not stay in Turkey for more than 90 days within the total validity period of 180 days.
The Turkey visa is usually issued within three days.
Are you already traveling to Turkey today or tomorrow? In this case, you should submit an urgent application.
Urgent applications are processed immediately after payment and generally approved after a few minutes. It means that with an urgent application, you can expect an email with the issued visa just 10-20 minutes after the payment has been made.
Please print out your visa and take it with you on your trip to Turkey. If you don’t have a printer, you can also show the visa digitally on your mobile phone or tablet at passport control.
