Visa for Turkey

Are Visa's available at the airport in Istanbul all hours of the day, depending on when your flight arrives?

Thanks

Yes (we arrived at 4 or 5 in the morning), and it is before passport control and any cash machine. Make sure that you have the dollars or euros to pay for it.

We are currently in Turkey. Bought our visas on the internet beforehand. Very easy - you print them at home. Saves a very long queue to buy them when you get here.

Go to https://www.evisa.gov.tr/en/

I used this a month after it's introduction a few months ago, works a treat. You print your own visa.

What is the cost? The website says $ 20.00 and then something about $ 60.00 per person.

We paid $20 each for our on-line visas. Don't kow what the $60 is all about. (this was last month). Be sure to keep your visa with your passport - you have to show it at immigration when you leave the country.

Are you sure you're looking at the official site? I think you might be looking at one that charges $20 for the visa and a $39 "service fee", which is NOT the official one.

Well first, the question should be do you need a visa? Not all nationalities need one to enter Turkey. That's when having more than one passport comes in handy. ;-)

The link that seat 61 has provided is the government site to apply on.

Well, I don't know if the cost is different for different countries, but I am looking at my e-visa receipt which comes from www.evisa.gov.tr/en/invoice - the same site as Man in seat 61 refers to. We are Australian and we paid US$60 each on 24th June.

Yes Australians pay much more. It's in retaliation for higher visa charges for Turks in Aus.

Is it a multiple entry visa? If so how many entries are permitted?
