I’ve visited Turkey several times in the last few years and surprisingly, it is one of the easiest and quick visa application for citizens of the United States of America. There are many sites that appear when you search for Online Turkish Visa, but it’s easiest, fastest, and cheapest to apply for an e-visa on the official electronic visa application system.

As of 2023, Americans can also apply for a multi-entry visa and even a visa on arrival, which was not previously available as an option.

It takes a couple of minutes and you can download the e-visa almost immediately after making the payment.

NOTE: Make sure you use the official Turkish website that I’ve linked to above and not the first link that pops up on Google. You’ll pay more for that service. THERE IS NO NEED TO USE ANY EXPEDITED SERVICE. I received my visa within 15 minutes on the official site.

The current cost for a Turkish e-visa fee for Americans is now $50 USD as of October 2023.

How To Apply For A Turkish E-Visa Online In 2023/2024?

The application on the e-visa site is broken into two steps. The first part involves selecting the country of your travel document and entering a captcha code.

Next, you will need to select your entry date. It will automatically show a visa expiration date 180 days from the date you selected. The visa is valid for 180 days, with a maximum stay of 90 days.

The next screen will ask you to fill in your passport information, mother’s name, father’s name, birthdate, and birthplace.

Turkish e-Visa Online Application Questions

After you filled in your information, you will receive an email with all the information that you will need to approve within 1 hour. It will include a reference number that you can use to log back into your application process at any time.


When you approve the information, you will be taken to a screen to make the payment. The cost for American citizens as of March 1, 2022 to get a Turkish e-Visa is $50 plus a $1.50 credit card processing fee.

As soon as you make the payment, you will be taken to a screen to download the e-visa within minutes. You’re done.

Passport control should automatically have the e-visa information in their system, but it is always advisable to have a printed copy with you on your travels. I suggest keeping a digital copy on your phone as well.

Be sure you are doing this on the official e-visa application site.

    Do you know if you do a “family” e-visa if you have to pay $50 for each person? Or does the $50 cover everyone in your family? Thx

      As far as I know, you can apply for a whole family at once, but the payment will probably be per person. You can try to go through the process right up until the payment page and it will tell you how much it is for everyone.

    I’ve been in the U.K. for 50 years, but have a U.S. passport as I was born there. I’m going to Turkey mid June for one week. Is it easy to get an E-visa, and how do I pay in sterling? Thanks!
