Please note that the Turkish Consulate has recently advised that the sticker / stamp Visa on arrival will no longer be available from 10th April 2014 and will be completely replaced by a pre-arranged e-visa application process. We have been advised that vistors to Turkey travelling from 10th April 2014 onwards on passports from these countries will be required to pre-purchase their entry visa via the Turkish Government website www.evisa.gov.tr prior to entering Turkey. Currently you can only apply within 90 days of your arrival date which you must elect on application. You can enter Turkey on any date from then, within this validity period (the length of which will be advised on application and will depend on your passport). It has been advised to apply for your visa at least 1 week before departure (you should receive email confirmation within 24 hours usually) and that your passport must be valid for 6 months. Currently the cost of an E-Visa is betweeen USD$0 and US$60 for most nationalities (differs with passport). If your nationality is not listed here you are either exempt from visa (do not require one for the advised period of tourist travel) or you need to visit the nearest Turkish Embassy / Consulate General for visa application which should be advised on attempted application online. If you had any further questions please consulate your local Embassy / Consulate for official, complete and fully up to date information (that could be subject to change) as will be your responsibility to ensure all the necessary visas are obtained prior to your trip.
This affects all those booked to travel with us on the Turkey ANZAC Adventure, Sail Turkey, Turkey Cappadoccia Adventure, Turkey Aegean Adventure, Ottoman Trek, Classic Balkan Trek and Mini Balkan Trek for all 2014 departures.
