Find your consulate

If you’re inside the U.S, you can find your “Jurisdiction” (i.e. based on the State you live in) here:

Los Angeles Consulate: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, and Hawaii.

Chicago Consulate: Illinois, Iowa. Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

New York Consulate: Connecticut. Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maine- Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Vermont, and Puerto Rico.

Washington, D.C. Consulate: District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and the entire United States

If you’re outside of the U.S., visit this site here.

Gather the first round of documents

You will need to double check with the website of the consulate that you found above.

Submit the information

The Turkish Embassy/Consulate will inform the applicant/team leader about the result of the application via mail or e-mail. Once approved, continue to the step below.

Submit new documents in person

These must be submitted in person at the consulate. Contact your consulate to double check the latest fee or to find out payment method.

Wait for approval

That’s it! After all that work and gathering of documents, the Turkish consulate will give to you your brand new visa for Turkey. Congratulations!

Vaccination Requirements
