Will Turkey's Visa officers give us trouble?

Jump to last reply

Took forever to finally get clearance to take a two-week holiday to go from US to Greece for a wedding in August. But now that I'm actively seeking airfare, I see it's considerably cheaper (almost $600 per person after it's all said and done) to fly into Istanbul and book a separate flight to Athens rather than fly into ATH.

I'm aware of the visa, and that's no problem for me; however, DW's passport only has 4 months validity after the trip, and I've read/heard you need 6 months validity to clear the passport desk in Turkey (although I've also heard 3 is enough from people I've spoken with at Turkish consulate).

Has anyone had experience with this issue before, or tips? Thanks so much!
