I’ve visited Turkey a couple times in the last few years and it has one of the easiest and quick visa application that you can do online. The official site to apply for a Turkish visa is not the first link to appear, but there’s no need to use any 3rd party service because the Turkish visa is one of the easiest and fastest online visa you can get. It takes a couple of minutes and you can download the e-visa almost immediately after making the payment.

NOTE:  THERE IS NOT NEED TO USE ANY EXPEDITED SERVICE. I received my visa within minutes on the official site. It the same for a Canadian friend of mine.

How Much Is An Online Visa To Turkey For Canadian Citizens?

The current cost for a Turkish e-visa fee for Canadians is now $60 USD as of January 2022.

On the next page, 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. You can also see the fee of $60 USD here for Canadians.

If you don’t plan on entering multiple times or stay longer than the last day available in the 180 day period, you can consider  setting the entry date a few days earlier than your arrival, just in case your plans change.

When you approve the information, you will be taken to a screen to make the payment. The cost for Canadian citizens as of January 1st, 2022 to get a Turkish e-Visa is $60 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.
