Turkey has made the process of getting a Turkish visa easy for passengers by launching an e-visa program<. The program allows travelers to obtain Turkish visas online at www.evisa.gov.tr instead of going through Turkish consulates/embassies or at the border gates upon arrival.
Passengers applying for the visa through the website should have a passport that has been valid for at least six months, flight reservation documents and a credit card (Visa or MasterCard).
The user gets an electronic copy of the E-Visa upon submittal of an application. A hard copy is also sent by mail. The electronic copy can be printed and used as visa at the airport upon arrival in Turkey.
E-Visas can be used only for tourism or trade purposes.
