e-Visa Turkey | Holiday visa for Turkey

You can now buy your Turkish Tourist Visa Online with e-visa Turkey and save time having to stand in hot line after your flight to get your Visa Stamp.evisa

Important:  You are now required to purchase your e-visa before travel, as of the start of 2015 most airports have now phased out visa purchase on arrival.

If you are regular visitor to Turkey you most likely have already enjoyed getting off a busy holiday flight and having to stand in line while the inexperienced and unprepared fumble around to get out their passports and find their £10 sterling before they hand them over to an unsmiling attendant to get the visa stamp placed in their passport.

Well wait no more, you can now apply online before you travel saving you having to wait in long queues and jump straight to passport control and onto getting your luggage and your holiday started faster.

Beware however that this time saving option will mean you paying around $20 instead of the normal £10 sterling and works out costly if you are travelling in a group, you may also be charge by foreign currency charge by your bank or credit card.

However if you do value your time and think it is worth the extra charge then this is how you go about getting your online Turkish Tourist Visa.

Some guidelines on the Turkish e-Visa

  • Each online visa Costs $20
  • You must apply per person and you can’t not apply for a group of people. Which means if you have a group of 4 you must go through the process 4 times.
  • Payment is taken in US Dollars and must be paid using either a debit or credit card. Beware of Bank Charges.
  • The Visa will be valid for 90 days within a 180 days and for multiple entries within the 180 day period, for more information on 90 days within a 180 days see this article Visitor Visa Turkey | 90 within 180 day Tourist Visa
  • Visa can be purchase for any 6 months in the future of the start date.

      Just like any visa, it will have to be stamped at passport control, At passport control you produce the paper print out visa and they will stamp your passport. Make sure to keep the visa for your exit. The purpose is so you do not have to go to purchase a visa stamp on arrival and can head straight to passport control.

      Donna, can I ask did you use this website https://www.evisa.gov.tr? If not then you may have used a fake account and have been frauded, if so contact your credit card company. If not, have you been charged by your credit card for changing from £ into $? Also did you select the correct country at the start of the process, check your visa print out and the last the option if none apply above follow the above link and use the contact us and email them, the charge should not be this amount and the only way to correct it is to contact them direct.

          Let your bank deal with it, do not give any details, they can use these to set up all sorts of things in your name. Also look on the UK police website see if they have a fraud dept for online isdues and report the website and also go to the website I gave you the link for and report the website to them. But do not give sny more details, you may need to cancel your card also but speak to your bank they will have a proceedure for this.
