Turkey has launched a hassle-free e-Visa service, allowing tourists and business travelers to obtain their visas without visiting Turkish missions.
This service is available for ordinary passport holders with valid Schengen, USA, UK, Ireland visas, or residence permits.
To apply for a visit visa to Turkey, Pakistani applicants can follow a straightforward three-step process:
Visit the official website at https://www.evisa.gov.tr/en/ to initiate the application.
After entering the required information, applicants can make the necessary payments using a credit or debit card (Mastercard, Visa, or UnionPay).
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.
Turkey 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 exploring the unique beauty and culture of Turkey.
Minimum bank statement requirement
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.
