Indians could avail visas on arrival till the year 2014. Now, Indians need an electronic visa (e-visa) or a sticker visa to visit as a tourist. This e-visa is valid for 90 days with a processing time of three minutes. The online visa procedure is quick and time-saving. You can apply for a tourist visa only when you are going for seminars, exhibitions, sports activities, cultural activity, and touristic visits.
It takes three working days for a visa from the date of submission of application at the Turkish embassy. Indians with valid visas or residence permits from Schengen, US, UK, and Ireland are eligible for Turkish e-visa. Indians without valid visas or residence permits of these countries need to apply for a sticker visa along with the single entry visa fee — Turkish embassy or consulate issues electronic or sticker visa. Airlines companies also help Indian citizens get a Turkey visa.
