Canadian citizens, you have three options for submitting your Turkish Visa Application: electronically linked, visa on arrival or traditional stamp. Any of the visas allow Canadian citizens to stay in Turkey for up to 90 days and are allowed multiple visits within that time frame. Let’s take a look at each type and their requirements:

  • Electronic visa: This is the most encouraged as it guarantees you already have it before arriving in Turkey. Plus, we can help you receive and link a visa to your passport. By link, we mean there is no documentation you bring on the plane. Instead of mailing your passport into the embassy and waiting weeks for it to return, the visa is linked to the microchip inside the Canadian passport. It makes it convenient when arriving in Turkey as you don’t have to apply for a visa or carry paperwork.

  • Visa on arrival: Exactly as it sounds, Canadian citizens can fly to Turkey and upon arrival at the airport, apply right there. This version is quick and easy, so long as you do not have any problems with travel. No photo or additional documents are required. The cost is $60.00 USD or €45.

  • Visa stamp: This is the old fashion, snail mail version, which is being phased out. Currently, if you are not computer savvy or don’t trust getting to Turkey and applying, you can send in your passport and docs to the embassy.

It’s highly recommended that you get familiar with the electronic process as many points of entry in Turkey will not be accepting stamps soon.

Remember, if you have questions or concerns, give us a call and we will guide you through the steps of having your passport linked.
