Turkey has launched an e-visa service, allowing tourists and business travelers to obtain their visas without visiting Turkish embassies.

The service is available for ordinary passport holders with valid Schengen, USA, UK, Ireland visas, or residence permits.

Three-step process


To apply for a visit visa to Turkey, Pakistani applicants can follow a straightforward three-step process:

Step-I: Apply

Visit the official website at https://www.evisa.gov.tr/en/ to initiate the application.

Step II- Pay fee

After entering the required information, applicants can make the necessary payments using a credit or debit card (Mastercard, Visa, or UnionPay).

Step III-Download

Upon successful completion of the application, the applicant will receive a link to download their e-Visa. This link will also be emailed to them for convenience.

It is advised to keep a copy of the e-Visa, either in electronic format (on a tablet, smartphone, etc.) or as a hard copy in case of any system issues at the entry points.

Visit visa fee

Applicants can obtain their Turkey visit visas electronically after making the required payments.

The visit visa fee for Pakistani nationals is set at $60. This affordable fee opens the doors to explore Turkey.

Other financial requirements

In addition to the visa fee, applicants must fulfill specific financial requirements, including providing proof of a return ticket and hotel reservation.
Official guidelines stipulate that a tourist should have a minimum of $50 for each day of their stay in Turkey.

Therefore, a Pakistani tourist planning to spend 30 days in Turkey must demonstrate a bank statement with a balance of at least $1,500 to meet this requirement.
