Denis Ersoz, Culture and Tourism Counsellor at Turkey Embassy has announced that no visa-on-arrival rule on Indians has been relaxed. On October 28, it has changed its policy of issuing no Visas on arrival (VOA) to many nations including India. According to it, Indian Immigrants holding valid Visa from the US, UK, Schengen and Ireland can apply for Turkish e-Visa.
Indian Immigrants can use the Turkish Government website to obtain the e-Visa. It would require a fee of $44.5 and take nearly 3 minutes of time. After getting the e-Visa on mail, they can fly to Turkey with the printout.
The e-Visa was launched back in April 2013. It is subject to certain conditions. Let’s have look at them –
Indian Immigrants not having valid Visa or Residence Permit from those countries would have to go for sticker Visa. The single entry Visa fee is Rs 3940. As quoted by The Times of India, the two Visas are same in nature. With either of them, Indian Immigrants can enter from any border gate to Turkey.
Mr. Ersoz further added that for moving through the International transit area, travelers would not need a Transit Visa. He advised travelers to confirm the matter with concerned airlines company. As long as they are within the International area, no Visa is needed.
Turkey’s earlier decision to stop providing VOA had worried Immigrants from many nations. However, in October, the Embassy announced relaxation on Indian Immigrants. That was a reason for them to breathe easy.
The Turkish Embassy website announced that e-Visa kiosks at Istanbul airport have been closed. Immigrants have to get the e-Visa online before departure. Citizens of India, Nepal, Bhutan and Maldives are allowed to apply for it.
