Visa requirements

Turkish visas

It is highly recommended that foreigners wishing to visit Türkiye read up-to-date information about Türkiye’s visa regime.  

The visa regime for a Touristic and Business Purposed visit may differ from a Work and Education Purposed visit. Also, Türkiye’s visa regime may change according to the reciprocity principle. 
While some applicants may be exempt from a visa for their touristic or business visit to Türkiye, others can obtain an e-Visa. All other applicants will need to obtain a visa through Turkish Representations abroad. 

All European Union ordinary and official passport holders are exempted from a Turkish visa for visits of up to 90 days or more.
