U.K. tourists can enter Turkey without visa from next month

Published on : Thursday, February 20, 2020

 

Turkey will abolish its existing visa rules for UK tourists from next month, at present the British travellers need to apply for a permit to travel which costs US$35 (£27).

 

 

It was announced by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Ankara that as a March 2, 2020, Turkey has decided to exempt visa requirement for the members of the European Union Schengen area, Australia, Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, Poland as well as the United Kingdom citizens for touristic travels to Turkey for every 90 days within 180 day period.

 

 

It is aimed at increasing the tourism potential with these countries and further develop their trade, economic and cultural relations.

 

According to the Foreign Office  the Turkish  government has advised that the passport should remain valid for at least six months from the date you enter Turkey and there is a full blanket page for the entry and exit stamps.

 

 

In 2019 more than two million Britons travelled to Turkey. For decades Turkey had applied fees to British visitors for decades and during the 1980s, the UK tourists had to pay £10 in cash to enter the country.

 

 

The British travellers will be facing much tougher red tape when entering the European Union from January 1, 2021.
