Abandoning the practice of issuing “sticker” and “stamp-type” visas at Turkish borders

Kanberra Büyükelçiliği 31.10.2013

The practice of issuing “sticker” and “stamp-type” visas at the borders will be replaced by electronic visa (e-Visa) on 10 April 2014 enabling visa applicants to obtain their visas online.

For those who wish to obtain their visa on arrival, sticker and stamp-type visas will still be available until 10 April 2014.

Australian citizens travelling to Turkey may apply for e-Visa through www.evisa .gov.tr at least 24 hours before their departure.

Please note that e-Visa is only valid when the purpose of travel is tourism or commerce. For other purposes, such as work and study, visas will be issued by Turkish Embassies or Consulates.

Visitwww.evisa.gov.tr to make an e-Visa application or to get further information.
