Passport / Visa
Visa-free entry for the purpose of tourism is granted to citizens of 78 countries, which includes nearly all of Europe and further countries around the world. Those who do require a visa can now take advantage of the online e-Visa application system, which is easy to use and allows applicants to obtain an electronic visa within a few minutes. Travellers' passports should generally be valid for 6 months following the end of the trip, but there are exceptions to the rule, and nationals of some countries may even enter the country with an ID card rather than passport. At the time of writing, nationals of the USA were temporarily not eligible to apply for any kind of Turkish visa (please consult the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website for current information).
