visa at dalaman

Hoping someone can answer.... I have just booked flights Gatwick to Dalaman next may and read that we need to buy a visa from the Turkish website at least a week before departure and not when we land....... we have been to turkey many times and just bought at the airport once landed... has it all changed???? Thanks

Yes it has, Georgie - it changed earlier this year, and for next year, the evisa will be compulsory, so you will need to get it online before you travel. Only use the official website - www.evisa.gov.tr - it is priced in US dollars ($20, which works out at around £12 at current exchange rates).

It's very quick and easy to do - the information will all come up when they scan your passport on arrival at Dalaman, but you are advised to print off a copy and keep it with you just in case they ask to see the paper copy. Instead of going to visa desk first then passport control as you would have done on previous visits, you just go straight to passport control now.

Hi Yes it changed this year. The new system is better meaning if you have your visa in advance you get through much quicker.

make sure you only use the official site, the link is on the right side of the page. it costs 20 US dollars, which is about £12. Simply log onto the site and follow the on screen instructions. You are then sent an email and you print off the visa.

this year you could also still pay at the airport on arrival but the cost was £20, not surte if this will be available next year.

Please make sure that you only use the official site as there are some unscrupulous sites that also charge a fee for this which can cost as much as £55
