Turkish Embassy in India recently announced to offer long validity visas to the Indian applicants to boost Indian arrivals. Under this decision, the Turkish consulate will offer single entry visas with 2-year validity for applicants.
Additionally, Turkey will issue a new sticker visa free of charge for the applicants who already have a sticker or an e-visa but were not able to use it because of the Covid-19 Pandemic. The new Visa thus issued will also have two-year validity. If the applicant could not travel due to pandemic, the applicant can re-apply for the visa free of charge.
Turkey opened its borders for tourism in June with well-planned Covid regulations in place due to which the country has emerged as a major tourist destination. Due to this, nearly 1 million International visitors arrived in Turkey in the month of July. Turkey has already launched Safe Tourism Certification program which is implemented in various areas including transportation and accommodation to ensure a safe vacation for tourists this season.
