Visa to Turkey

Visa to Turkey

Hello,

I wonder if anyone know this question please:

My father in law is on a family visit visa in the UK for 4 months, we want to visit Turkey and on the E-Visa website, it says you need to have a Visa from an OECD country which the UK is part of.

Is a family visit visa from the UK fine for him to apply for the E-Visa to Turkey?

Thank you

Holders of Vietnamese passports can apply for an online eVisa.

A single entry visa costs $45 USD, can be obtained from the OFFICIAL Turkish eVisa website: https://www.evisa.gov.tr/en/

But it also says they need a visa from an OECD country, is the family visit visa fine for that criteria? or does that visa need to be a specific one like a spouse visa, student visa etc?

Thanks for your reply

I suggest that you contact the Turkish eVisa authority, using the 'Contact Us' page on their website.

https://www.evisa.gov.tr/en/feedback/

Although I haven't needed to contact them myself, I understand that they respond to all enquiries quickly.

Tuan, family visit visa is a valid UK visa is it not. If the answer is yes, then your father qualifies for a Turkish evisa.
