On arrival visa - Indian holding UK Tier 1 General visas

I'm an Indian and I hold UK Tier 1 General multiple entry visa (Residence Permit bio metric card and not permanent one) which is valid until Jan' 2016. My wife holds multiple entry UK Tier 1 General dependent (partner) visa (which says UK entry Clearence) which is valid until Jan' 2016. Will there be any problem in getting on arrival visa?

Thanks in advance.

By googling further, I found that there will be no problem for me. But I couldn't find anything related to Tier 1 General dependent partner (spouse - mutliple entry) visa. It would be great if someone could advise me on this please.

Why don't you check with the Turkish embassy in London, they should be able to advise you. And I'd suggest getting the online e-visa, very simple, saves time on arrival in Istanbul as lines can be quite long if several flights land around the same time.

Many Thanks Prish, I did try and I couldn't get hold of anyone over phone.

It would be great if someone could advise asap as I have already booked by holidays.

Ramesh37, as long as both of you have valid multiple entry UK visas at the time of entry to Turkey, you qualify for an evisa, "https://www.evisa.gov.tr/en/", or a visa-on-arrival. This is the case for both of you.

Apoorv, yes, if those visas are valid at the time of entry to Turkey, then you can get an evisa.
