All UK passport holders will need to purchase a tourist Visa in order to enter the country.
You will need to purchase your Visa's online, PRIOR TO YOUR ARRIVAL IN TURKEY. Please click on the link below to be directed to the official eVisa website and follow the instructions.
The eVisa's cost $20 each and all UK visitors to Turkey need to have one, including babies and children. There are many 'unofficial' websites on the internet that will provide you with an eVisa for a heavily inflated charge, so please ensure that you use the official eVisa website.
Your eVisa will be valid for 90 days from the start date. At present you are able to make return visits to Turkey without purchasing another eVisa if your return visit is within the 90 day period, however, you are not permitted to stay in Turkey for longer than 90 days in any one 180 day period.
Your passport will be stamped with the date of entry on arrival in Turkey and you will need to have a blank page available in your passport for this. Your passport will also be stamped with the date of exit when you leave the country.
New passport rules from January 2016:
Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of entry into Turkey AND have an expiration date at least 60 days beyond the "duration of stay" on your eVisa. For example, in order to enter Turkey having an eVisa with 90 days “duration of stay”, UK visitors should hold a passport that's valid at least for an additional 60 days which totals 150 days (90 days + 60 days) of validity at the time of entrance.
Residents from countries other than the UK, will need to check their individual Visa and passport requirements.
Health care in Turkey is not covered under the E111 as in the European Union and private health cover is necessary. However the standard of private care in the area is excellent and generally significantly cheaper than European private hospitals.
It is therefore very important that you have adequate insurance cover in place before travelling and this can be arranged very quickly and cheaply by clicking here.
