Latest advice on Turkish visas

From 11 April 2014, the Turkish authorities will start to phase out issuing visas on arrival.

UK visitors arriving in Turkey on or after 11 April, should get an e-visa online before travel.

For a transition period, visas on arrival will be available but we recommend consumers obtain an e-visa as this will be cheaper and also remove the need to queue for a visa on arrival. 

The cost is $20 USD for an e-visa and effective from 11 April, $30 Euro, $25 USD or £20 for a visa on arrival.

Cruise ship passengers with ‘British Citizen’ passports entering the country for a day trip, remaining in the port of embarkation and returning to the ship the same day will continue to be able to enter Turkey without a visa or an e-visa.
