Changes to US ESTA requirements
If travelling to the USA please ensure that you apply for your ESTA no later than 72 hrs prior to departure. Real-time approvals are no longer available and arriving at the airport without a previously approved ESTA will likely result in being deinied boarding.
ESTA’s can be obtained at https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/ at a cost if USD14.00 per person.
We would like to inform you that the Visa kiosks / desks located before the Passport Control in Istanbul Ataturk Airport are no longer in use. The new Istanbul Airport will also not have this facility.
Passengers travelling to Turkey, who need a VISA to enter, will now have to apply for an online E-Visa prior to their travel using the website www.evisa.gov.tr
Payment is taken online and their VISA will be issued in within 2-3 minutes.
