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.
