Visas between Turkey and Greece.

As from 10 April 2014, it is no longer possible for passengers travelling to Turkey to buy/obtain a visa upon arrival at entry points in Turkey. Instead passengers should buy an e-Visa online in advance of travelling, valid for their stay. Please note conditions may apply to e-Visas.

Australia: Ordinary and official passport holders are required to have visas to enter Turkey. Ordinary passport holders can obtain three month-multiple entry e-Visas via the website.

New Zealand: Ordinary and official passport holders are exempt from visas for their travels up to 90 days.

For more information about the Turkish e-Visa please consult the following official websites:

The Republic of Turkey Ministry of Foreign Affairs website.

The Republic of Turkey Electronic Visa Application System website. 

E-visas have been operational in Turkey since 17 April 2013, therefore passengers can use this facility.

If you require an e-Visa, you can apply for one online through the Republic of Turkey Electronic Visa Application System by completing the application form at and (after the application is approved) paying a fee. In order to apply you will need (i) a passport that is valid for at least six months longer than the expiry date of the requested visa, (ii) a flight (or any other possible means of transportation) reservation and (iii) a credit card (Mastercard or Visa).

Each passenger must hold their own e-Visa, including children and minors even if they are included on someone else's passport. Upon successful application, the e-Visa is e-mailed to the passenger with 24 hours of successful completion of the application. Applicants must print out their e-Visa, show it to airport officials and customs officers and carry it with them at all times during their travel. You should apply for your e-Visa at least 24 hours before your departure. However you are advised to make an application at least one week before your departure. An e-Visa is only valid for tourism or trade purposes. For other purposes such as work or study, an application must be submitted through the Turkish embassies or consulates.

If you have not applied for and hold a valid e-Visa prior to/at the time of travel you may be denied boarding or admission at the Turkish port of entry. However, possession of an e-Visa does not guarantee admission to Turkey as the Turkish authorities can deny entrance of a holder of an e-Visa to Turkey in certain cases. If you are refused boarding or denied admission at the Turkish port of entry, you will still be subject to charter cancellation charges in accordance with the terms of our contract with you.

It is the responsibility of each individual to ensure relevant visas are obtained where necessary. The charter company or Sail Connections cannot be held responsible for refusal of entry or travel due to lack of visas. If you are in any doubt please contact your Embassy for full details.
