As of January 5, 2016, all visa applications, excluding tourist visas, must first be submitted through the Pre-Application System before completing the application at a Turkish consular post. Once the online application is completed, the applicant should apply to the appropriate Turkish consular post to finalize the procedure and obtain the visa sticker. The applicant must bring with them to their appointment, the fully executed visa application, passport and the original copies of supporting documents.

Applicants who experience difficulties in completing the application form or reside in a country where internet access is limited, may still submit their applications directly to the appropriate Turkish consular post. To access detailed information regarding Turkish visa matters, click here.
