What is an E-Visa / Online Visa?
E-Visa is a system developed with the aim of saving passengers from long-term and tiring bureaucratic procedures, as well as creating an alternative to visas issued at the borders. Online users can apply for visas online to the countries they wish to visit. Those who are considering applying for a visa can obtain their travel documents if they meet the requirements through the e-visa system. Online visas are issued mainly for touristic purposes. This system is not yet implemented to work permits or student visas.
How to Get an E-Visa / Online Visa?
Visa procedures and documents requested vary by country, but the process is generally the same for every country. In order to obtain an online visa, first of all, the country of destination must provide this service. Passengers with valid passports can pay the requested e-visa fee through their credit cards, then print out the document and pass directly through the border. Many foreign citizens wishing to enter our country without going to any representative office or waiting in line to get approval, can directly apply for an e-visa only with their passport details. After completing the payment procedure, they can get their e-visas.
