As of April 17, 2013, electronic visa (e-Visa)
replaces “sticker visa” which was issued at the border crossings. Applicants just need to log on to www.evisa.gov.tr
, provide the requested information, (after the application is approved) make online payment and download their e-Visa. Please note that e-visa is only valid when the purpose of travel is tourism or commerce. Other purposes, such as work and study, require regular visa given by Embassies or Consulates. Passports should be valid at least six months longer than the expiry date of the requested visa.
