    Visa Requirements

    Student Visa

    Depending on nationality and bilateral agreements between Turkey and other countries there is more than one visa or entry option available for international students. International students can enter to Turkey with or without visa depending on nationality and bi-national agreements. These are regular consular visa, e-visa, passport, national ID, airport visa entries. Once you have an idea of how you will enter Turkey and what is most convenient for you, you will be able to apply for.

    Please check your country’s eligibility and/or apply by clicking on If you are exempt from a tourist visa for Turkey, you need not apply for a student visa at the Turkish Consulate. You will simply enter the country with a passport valid for the complete length of stay plus 60 days.

    A student visa will still be valid, but must be issued from the consulate (and Turkish Consulates in some countries no longer issue these visas for Turkey). The student visa however, is a single-entry visa.

    We refer you to the official Republic of Turkey Ministry of Foreign Affairs webpage on which you may scroll down to country-specific information for further details:
