A) By AIR: If you are a visa-national , you will not need visa for transit unless you pass through the “passport control point” at Turkish airports.
Please note that you cannot leave airport transit area and you must hold a ticket to a destination outside of Turkey. You must also have permission/visa to enter the destination country, if such permit/visa is required.
B) By SEA or LAND: If you intend to travel by sea or land via Turkey, you will need a visa. Please refer to Information on Tourist Visa for Ordinary Passport Holders (for all countries). The application procedure is the same as tourist visa.
Before applying for transit visa to this Consulte General, all passport and travel document holders must obtain the visa of the destination country. If you are exempt from visa to the destination country, then they have to submit an official letter issued by the relevant countries’ diplomatic representatives confirming that they do not need any visa.
