Do non EEA family member need a visa to Turkey?

Post by spike_UK » Mon Feb 27, 2012 3:16 pm

Hi there, can anybody help me please.
I know to travel to any Europe countries, either you going with your EEA national spouse or you have to get Schengen visa, but how about to fly to Turkey with your EEA national spouse, do you still have to get a visa in London Turkish consulate or you can just buy it at the airport same as the others.
Please somebody help me out as there is no number to ring..only you have to make appointment in London if you want the visa.
Many thanks, anything will help, all the best.

EEA family permits etc hold no weight when it comes to Turkish visa regulations. Without knowing the nationality of the non EEA citizen involved, I can't tell you whether you'd need a visa or not but nearly everyone who does require a visa can purchase one at the border.. There are exceptions though, e.g. Thai citizens must apply through a Turkish consulate.

which passport are you holding? if on their web site says you need to apply for visa then you have to apply for it because Turkey is not part of EU.

Yeh u right Turkey is not EU so they dont care about RC or PR and my country is on the list of which need a visa before flying to Turkey, so I guess my holiday again will be in EU, until next year I get my British passport :)

Hi Spike;

EEA(European Economic Area) member country's citizens do not have to get a visa from the Turkish Consulate. You can just buy it from the airport.

If you would like to be sure call 0090 216 588 25 68 (the airport police in Istanbul).

Have a nice trip.
