NO MORE VISA-ON-ARRIVAL TO TURKEY
It is no longer possible for Canadians to obtain a visa-on-arrival in Turkey. Canadians arriving in Turkey must have an e-visa prior to travel.
Please be aware that you will NOT be boarded on the plane without having an e-visa for Turkey.
Canadians now enjoy dramatically lower fees and pay only US$20 per person. The e-visa is multiple-entry with a validity of 180 days from date of issue.
The rules for cruise ship passengers are as follows:
-Visitors don’t need an e-visa if they don't leave the ship.
-Visitors don’t need an e-visa if they only tour in the respective port city of Turkey. (Permission will be given by local border police authorities to enter Turkey).
-Visitors WILL need a visa if they want to tour beyond the respective port city of Turkey.
