// Turkey Visa

90 day tourist visa £10

As British citizens we were able to buy our Turkish visas at the border.

In February the Turkish government changed their tourist visa policy for European citizens. The new tourist visa specifies that the holder can stay in Turkey for a maximum of ninety days in any one hundred and eighty day period. This means that anyone living in Turkey on a tourist visa can no-longer do the usual ‘visa run’, leaving the country and returning the next day with a fresh ninety day visa. Anyone intending on staying for a longer duration in Turkey will have to go through the process of obtaining a residency visa. More expensive and a bit more hassle than the usual tourist visa. This involves going to the tourist police to make your application as well as proving that you have a certain amount of money in your bank account.
