Electronic business visa to Turkey
Since 2014, the country has had a system of electronic visas for up to 30 days, which greatly simplifies the process of entry for the purpose of negotiations, participation in exhibitions, conferences or other business events.
Registration takes place on the website, where a citizen fills in an online application form and uploads the necessary scans of documents - tickets, insurance, invitation from a Turkish company. The decision on the electronic application is made within 5 working days.
