VISA INFORMATION FOR TURKEY
A min. 6 months valid passport with a valid visa is one of the requirements for Turkey entry that can be obtained on arrival at international airports when you pass through the customs formalities. We recommend that you get your visa this way for the moment.
BEWARE OF THE SCAM E-VISA ONLINE!
We were noticed about these websites by one of our travelers who got confused that why the E-Visa website was based in Spain. She continued the steps anyway and realized the charging fee was 69 $ instead of 30 $ and she stopped for a moment.
After we were told the story, we realized that what these websites simply do is to follow the same steps as the official website do, charge a service of 69 $ per Visa and then fill in the official E-Visa form online on behalf of these travelers who could easily get their Visa on the official website following the same steps already!
Clever, is not it?
Here, you can see they have been displaying Google Ads for some of the keywords people search on Google and then get clicks through the Ads and BINGO!
Moreover, the first domain www.turkey-e-visas.org seems pretty legit with its .org extension since some countries use .org domains officially as well.
Finally, the safety of the credit card information shared on these websites is also a big question mark!
BEWARE! and spread the word to warn anyone traveling to Turkey!
STICKER VISA ON ARRIVAL VS. E-VISA ONLINE
As of April 17, 2013, electronic visa replaces “sticker visa” which is issued at the border crossings on arrival. Applicants just need to log in for e-visa online at by providing the requirements and requested information, (after the application is approved) make the online payment and download their e-visa which literally saves time on arrival.
Important Note: Please carry printed copies of your electronic visas to avoid any risk of being turned away at the departure gate.
