Beginning January 1st, 2015, any foreign nationals seeking entrance to Turkey must hold a passport that is valid for more than two months. This requirement will be upheld even if the individual holds a valid work or residence permit. It is expected that the Turkish government plans for strict enforcement of this rule and as such, travelers should be prepared to comply with the requirement.
