Turkey’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has set up an easy to use online visa issuing service. Business and tourist visitors to Turkey can enter their details and pay the visa fee by credit card before printing out the visa on a home printer.
The e-Visa replaces the ‘sticker visa’ issued at the borders. Speaking at the launch press conference, Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu emphasised that e-Visa is a revolutionary application and there is no other country which is implementing this system on the scale that Turkey is implementing it.
Delegates planning to visit the Stadia & Arena conference in Istanbul in May have already reported that the online application is very straightforward to use.
Foreign Minister Davutoğlu said that the system will increase the productivity of Turkish businessmen by facilitating the travel of other countries’ businessmen to Turkey. It is expected that 7.5 million foreigners will travel to Turkey with the e-Visa per year.
