Passport & Visa information

Getting to Turkey is very easy; you can arrive by air, sea, train, car or bus. There are direct international flights to Istanbul, Izmir, Ankara and Antalya from all around the world; or ferries from Italy and Greek islands to Cesme and other coastal areas; or trains from Greece and Bulgaria to Istanbul; and of course a huge road network from Europe or Middle East to Turkey.

On your arrival in Turkey you go through passport control and customs. For entering Turkey you'll need a valid passport and in most of the cases a tourist visa. Some foreign citizens may purchase a sticker visa at the port of entry which costs between 10 and 60 USD depending on your nationality (For example; US citizens pay USD 20, while Canadians pay USD 60, and Spanish pay EURO 10). But some citizens have to get an entry visa before arriving to Turkey. And some citizens are exempt from tourist visa requirement.

If you're planning to reside, study or work in Turkey, you must obtain an appropriate visa from Turkish diplomatic missions in your country before coming to Turkey. If you're going to shoot a film, conduct a research or an archeological excavation, you should get a special permission from the Turkish authorities in advance.

For further information, you may contact the Embassy of the Republic of Turkey or the nearest Turkish Consulate in your country. For latest Visa information, you can also visit the web site of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
