Citizens of the UAE, like most foreign nationals, must obtain authorization to enter Turkey prior to traveling. This means applying for a visa.
For short-term visits for tourism and/or business, UAE passport holders should apply for a Turkish e-Visa using the online application system.
The user-friendly process is streamlined to make Turkey visa applications quick and easy for Emirati visitors. Being an online visa, travelers can apply from the comfort of their own home, avoiding an unnecessary trip to a Turkish embassy or consulate.
The Turkey e-Visa is electronically linked to the Emirati traveler’s passport. When arriving at border control, officials at ports of entry into Turkey can verify the visitor’s ’s e-Visa using the electronic system. However, it is highly recommended to bring a printed copy of the e-Visa as a precaution in case of technical issues.
It is not possible for Emiratis to obtain a visa on arrival in Turkey. Therefore, visitors from the UAE should acquire an e-Visa in advance of their trip.
