About E-Visa for Turkey

Turkish E-Visas are conditionally granted electronic visas issued for those wishing to visit Turkey. E-Visas are usually issued for 90 days at a time. However, nationals of certain nations will instead gain access for 180 days. Initially, E-Visas could be purchased on arrival at self-service kiosks and via airport wifi.
