Turkey E-visa for Iraqi Citizens
E-Turkey visa application is a new implementation that is the technologically improved version of the previous period’s label or stamp that was given at the border crossing in Turkey. With e-visa, the person who will visit Turkey does not have to submit physical documents to the Turkish foreign missions in their countries. The application is made via the Internal Affairs of the Republic of Turkey through the portal of the Ministry of e-visa. The result of the e-visa application is sent to the e-mail address specified by the person during the application. The Turkish online visa application is preferred in order to reduce the workload of the Turkish foreign missions abroad. The visa sent to the person’s e-mail address as a result of the application must be preserved during the entirety of the trip. It is sufficient to show the print-out of this e-mailed document to the authorized officers at border control check-points.
