In this article, we will help you understand the entire process behind getting that visa and what else you need if you are planning to make that trip anytime soon. 

Turkish Visa for Indians

A single-entry visa costs around ₹4, 280 and ₹13, 550 if you are applying for a multiple entry visa. Although Indian citizens don’t typically get a visa on arrival, if you happen to have a valid visa or residence permit from US, UK, Schengen or Ireland, you can get a visa on arrival. In case you don’t, you would need to apply for a Turkish sticker visa by paying the requisite fee. 

Documents required for a Turkish Visa

You will need to keep these documents ready if you want to visit Turkey: 

  1. You should have a valid passport with at least 6 months of validity
  2. Confirmed hotel reservation, hotel booking and your travel itinerary ready for the entire duration of your stay
  3. You will need a copy of your completed visa application form
  4. Copy of confirmed flight tickets to and from Turkey
  5. Proof that you can financially support yourself during your stay. You must have at least $50 per day for the entire duration of your stay in Turkey 
  6. 6 months bank statement proving that you are financially sound
  7. You would need a copy of police clearance certificate. However, if you have traveled to United Kingdom, USA or any of the other Schengen countries, then this requirement is waived off. 

How to Apply for a Turkey Visa for Indians?
