The e-visa system enables foreign nationals to obtain a Turkish visa online and thereby avoid having to wait in queues at Turkish embassies, consulates or border crossings.

The largest visa applicants came from Iraq, followed by the UK and US.

Applicants obtain their visa electronically after entering required information and making a payment by credit card online.

The Foreign Ministry says on its website that anyone arriving in Turkey after April 10, 2014, will need to obtain a visa before arrival.
