New Passport Guidelines for Turkey

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

The Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism announced the new guidance for foreign passport-holders entering Turkey.

pasaport-controlIn new guidance for foreign passport-holders entering Turkey, passports must be valid for at least 60 days from the date of expiry of a traveller's visa, visa exemption period or residency permit to be able to enter the country before 31 December 2014.

That is to say that a traveller leaving Turkey on 20 August 2014 for example should hold a passport that is valid until at least 20 October 2014.

As from 1 January 2015 passports must be valid for at least 60 days from the date of expiry of a traveller's visa, visa exemption period or residency permit to be able to enter the country. For example, a traveller with a visa expiry date of 20 May 2015 must hold a passport that is valid until at least 20 July 2015.

Travellers without the required period of validity on passports will regrettably not be allowed entry into Turkey due to this new legal regulation.
