Travelling to Turkey - 2014 Turkish Visa changes

If you are holidaying or traveling to Turkey after April 2014, you will need to be aware that you will need to have an e-visa prior to traveling.

This is the information from the Turkish consulate:

Deadline for the application of Stamp Visa and Banderole visa for entering the Republic of Turkey at the border gates
23/12/2013 - Announcement

Dear Visa Applicants, Turkish Consulate General kindly request the following information to be circulated; The application of Stamp Visa and Banderole visa for entering the Republic of Turkey at the border gates will continue together (simultaneously) with the e-visa application until 10th April 2014. After the aforementioned date (10 April 2014) the application of Stamp Visa and Banderole visa will be abolished and will completely be replaced by the e-visa application. The citizens of the countries who are eligible to get the banderole visa given at the border gates will be able to enter the Republic of Turkey with getting an “e-visa” online from the website "https://www.evisa.gov.tr" instead. Turkish Consulate General would like to inform and emphasize the deadline (10 April 2014) for the application of Stamp Visa and Banderole visa for entering the Republic of Turkey at the border gates. 


According to the general visa (for touristic purposes) rules, British passport holders have the right to stay 90 days in 180 days. The day you enter Turkey (not the day you get visa) is  the first day of the period of 180 days which means your right to stay 90 days duly starts on the day you enter Turkey.
