What is the visa requirement for Australians visiting Turkey?
Visitors to Turkey must have a visa if they are not nationals of one of the visa-exempt countries. Australian nationals do not require a visa to visit Turkey for tourism purposes, but they must have a valid passport and be in possession of adequate funds. A valid tourist visa costs €35 (Australian dollars) and is valid for up to 30 days. Australians travelling on business or as part of an organised tour should contact their embassy or consulate for further information.
How to get a Turkish visa?
If you are travelling to Turkey for tourism, business or to visit family, you won’t need a visa. However, if you are travelling for work, you will need to apply for a specific visa. You will also need a valid passport and documents that prove your citizenship (eg your driver’s licence).
To apply for a Turkish visa, visit the Turkish Embassy or Consulate in your home country. You will need to provide your name, date of birth, passport number and photocopy of all pages including the front and back cover. Additional documentation may be required depending on your nationality (see the table below).
What are the conditions of a Turkish visa?
A Turkish visa is required for Australians who wish to travel to Turkey. The visa requirements vary depending on your nationality, but in general, you will need a passport valid for at least six months after the date of your intended travel and a valid visa.
If you are travelling as part of a group, each traveller in the group must have their own valid Turkish visa. You will also need adequate funds to cover your stay in Turkey, as well as any associated expenses such as transport.
Please note that if you are travelling to Istanbul for tourism purposes only (i.e. not for work or study), you do not require a visa. However, if you are travelling to other parts of Turkey (including rural areas), you will need a visa. Turkey Visa for Australian Citizens
The turkey Visa exemptions for Australian citizens.
There are a few important things to know about the visa requirements for Australian citizens visiting Turkey. First of all, as a tourist, you don’t need a visa to visit Turkey for up to 90 days. If you’re staying for more than 90 days, however, you will need to apply for a tourist visa at an embassy or consulate in your home country.
To be eligible for a tourist visa, you must:
-Be a citizen of Australia
-Be travelling alone or with one companion (travelling together does not make you joint travellers)
-Not have any criminal convictions
-Not be regarded as posing a threat to public order or national security
-Have sufficient funds to cover your travel costs and emergencies while in Turkey (currently AU$160 per person)
-Present valid travel documents (a passport with at least 6 months remaining before the date of your intended departure from Turkey and tickets if applicable).
If everything checks out and you meet all other requirements, you’ll be issued a visa on arrival at an airport in Turkey. When arriving in Turkey, make sure to carry with you the visa stamp in your passport as proof of entry.
