Your original passport with a validity of at least 6 months after the expiry date of your visa.
It is also important that your passport contains at least 2 empty visa pages facing each other.
Foreign passport holders are required to submit the following:
- A copy of a residence permit for the Netherlands or Belgium on both sides. This may be a temporary or permanent residence permit
- If you do not have a residence permit, you may also submit a valid visa for the Netherlands or Belgium.
- The e-visa Turkey has a varying validity. Usually it is 4 months from the date of issue.
- Your standard period of stay with an e-visa Turkey is 30 days. You can extend this visa up to a maximum of 180 consecutive days.
- We recommend that you attach a printout of your e-Visa to your passport before travelling to your destination.
- Keep the application (or the email) of your e-Visa. This way you do not have to fill it in again if you travel to the same destination.
What is a visa for Turkey?
If you want to travel to Turkey, you must have a travel document and a visa Turkey and take it with you on your trip. The travel document can be a passport or an ID card.
There are a number of requirements, which are explained on this page. The requirements depend on the country in which the travel document was issued. For example, for residents of certain countries it is possible to travel with an ID card, while for residents of other countries it is only permitted to travel with a passport with sufficient remaining validity.
The type of visa to be applied for is also not the same for all nationalities. Usually the e-visa Turkey, which can be applied for online, is sufficient. But sometimes it is still necessary to apply for a regular visa. We can also apply for this regular visa for you. Please feel free to contact us if you are not sure which visa is applicable to you.
Apply for a visa Turkey
The visa for Turkey is nowadays an electronic visa for almost all nationalities. Since 2014 there is a visa requirement for Turkey for both Dutch and Belgian nationalities, who plan to travel with an ID card. Are you travelling with a Dutch passport? Then you do not need to apply for a visa before departure.
All visa applications Turkey can be requested and processed completely digitally on our website. So you do not need to provide us with any physical paperwork.
As the visa is sent digitally and often has a long validity period, it is possible to save it more easily and you can apply for the visa in most cases up to almost 1 year before your actual departure date.

Turkey visa costs, processing time and validity
The cost and processing time of your Turkey visa depends on the type of visa you choose. At Traveldocs you can apply for the cheapest visa Turkey entirely online and in just a few minutes!
Despite the long visa validity period of 180 days, the Turkish visa allows you to stay in Turkey for only 90 days. This may be a continuous period, but you can also cut this period of maximum 90 days in half. You may, in fact, arrive in Turkey an unlimited number of times with your Turkey visa. So you may stay in Turkey once for 90 days, or 90 times for one day, and everything in between. All these trips must be made within the 180-day validity period. The validity period applies to the whole journey, so not only each arrival must take place before the 180th day, but also the last departure from Turkey.
Do you want to stay in Turkey longer than the e-visa allows? Then you should report to the nearest Provincial Directorate for Migration Management in Turkey. If you fail to do so and stay in Turkey beyond your visa validity, you may be fined, deported or banned from entering the country.
The processing time usually only takes one to a few days. However, we recommend that you always apply for your visa well before you travel. Do you apply for your e-visa Turkey urgently? Then the visa will often be ready within a few hours.
Non-Dutch passport holders and alternative costs for visa Turkey
The costs for the electronic visa Turkey are only € 89.95, including VAT per person (for non-Dutch passport holders). With this visa you can travel as a Dutch or Belgian passport holder to Turkey for tourist or business purposes. In these visa fees Turkey, our mediation costs and VAT are also calculated. So you will never have to deal with higher costs for your visa Turkey afterwards. Do you have another nationality and are the consular costs different? We will inform you immediately. However, we do request that non-Dutch passport holders contact us in advance, so that we can calculate the exact price for your nationality before you submit your application on our website.
Attention! Non-Dutch passport holders and higher costs (tourist) visa Turkey
