Non-contracted visiting scholars can contact the nearest Turkish embassy /consulate and apply for a visa with the Acceptance Letter send by the host unit at ITU.
International scholars can enter Turkey with an e-Visa
. An e-Visa is a touristic visa that anyone can use to enter Turkey and that does not require an in-person visa application at a consulate. The e-Visa module
will also state whether an individual is exempt from touristic visas and if he/she can enter Turkey with a valid passport. Nationals of some countries can travel to Turkey solely with a valid passport.
It is highly recommended to check the visa requirements for Turkey via the e-Visa module.
