e-Visas for travel to Turkey are now available for groups of between 10 and 300 online via the official website www.evisa.gov.tr
In a move that makes travelling to Turkey simpler and easier, a new visa procedure has been in place since 11 April 2014.
The new Electronic Visa Application System enables visitors to obtain an e-Visa conveniently online.
Large Numbers Catered For
A group application for e-Visas can be created for a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 300 people.
Individuals included in the group must originate from the same country, their travel documents must be the same type (e.g. normal, official, diplomatic) and their arrival date must be the same. (Please note that the validity period of e-Visas will begin as of the date selected as arrival date.
e-Visa holders can enter Turkey on any date within the validity period. In other words, all individuals in the group are not required to enter Turkey on the same day.)
In addition, all pre-requisites (if any) for e-Visa application must be met by all in the group.
During the e-Visa application process on www.evisa.gov.tr, a link is provided for group applications on the right of the page where personal information is entered, under the heading ‘Information Note’.
The e-Visa application process for groups must be completed within 48 hours of the application process being started.
How Much is A Turkish E-Visa?
