25/03/2015 - Announcement
***According to the general visa (for touristic purposes) rules, British passport holders have the right to stay 90 days out of 180 days. The day you enter Turkey (not the day you get visa) is the first day of the period of 180 days which means your right to stay 90 days duly starts on the day you enter Turkey.
***Visas for touristic purposes or business meeting/ conference can be obtained via the Electronic Visa Application System (www.evisa.gov.tr). This system allows you to obtain your e-Visa in approximately 5 minutes online.
This Consulate is not authorised to manage e-visa. Please refer all e-visa queries to the following link. https://www.evisa.gov.tr/en/feedback/
*** Travel document holders can not apply for e-visa. They have to apply to this Consulate General for any type of visa. PLEASE MAKE ONLINE APPOINTMENT!
*** As of 1 January 2015, in accordance with the article 7.1b of “the Law on Foreigners and International Protection” no. 6458, foreigners wishing to enter Turkey should carry a travel document (passport) with an expiration date at least 60 days beyond the “duration of stay” of their visa, e-Visa, visa exemption, or residence permit.
Example A: In order to enter Turkey having a visa with 90 days “duration of stay”, foreigners should hold a travel document valid at least for an additional 60 days which totals to 150 days (90 days + 60 days) of validity at the time of entrance.
Example B: In order to enter Turkey having a visa with 30 days “duration of stay”, foreigners should hold a travel document valid at least for an additional 60 days which totals to 90 days (30 days + 60 days) of validity at the time of entrance."
