Announcement On New E-visa System

Singapur Büyükelçiliği 02.04.2014

As of April 17, 2013, a new e-Visa Application System has been launched by the relevant Turkish authorities. Since then, approximately one million e-Visas were issued for citizens of the 98 countries during the first 11 months.

Citizens of particular countries on condition of meeting necessary requirements can obtain their visas through e-Visa system and at border gates.

This new system allows the foreigners who need to obtain visa for entry to Turkey to have their e-Visas in approximately 3 minutes with no need of applying at the Turkish missions abroad or visa desks at the border gates in Turkey.

In accordance with the new system, when the tourism season of 2014 ends, no more “sticker” and “stamp-type” visas will be issued at the border gates, where, as of 1 April 2014, foreigners will be able to get their e-Visas at the e-Visa kiosks or free “WIFI” areas.

It is possible to obtain e-Visa 7/24 at everywhere with internet connection. The applicants can obtain their visas after they fill the necessary information concerning their identity, passport and travel dates and pay the fee online (if there is no exemption). Applicants will be able to pay fees with their debit cards in addition to their credit cards.


- Family and group applications can be made collectively and tour operators can apply for group visa on behalf of their customers.

- Contracted airline companies will receive the e-Visa applications through their own system and obtain e-Visa for their customers through e-Visa system.

Besides the new electronic system, Turkish Diplomatic and Consular Missions abroad will continue to issue visa.
