As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, Turkish visa requirements for Philippine citizens included the option to apply for an e-Visa, which is a convenient way to obtain a visa for tourism or business purposes. However, visa requirements and processes can change over time, so it’s essential to check the official website of the Republic of Turkey Ministry of Foreign Affairs or contact the nearest Turkish embassy or consulate for the most up-to-date information before planning your trip.

Here are some general guidelines regarding Turkey visa requirements for Philippine citizens:

  1. E-Visa for Tourism and Business:
    • Philippine citizens were eligible to apply for an e-Visa for tourism and business visits to Turkey.
    • The e-Visa is obtained through an online application process and is typically valid for short stays.
  2. E-Visa Application:
    • To apply for a Turkish e-Visa, Philippine citizens can visit the official website of the Republic of Turkey Electronic Visa Application System (https://www.evisa.gov.tr/en/).
    • Complete the online application form, provide the required information and documents, and pay the visa fee online.
    • Once your e-Visa application is approved, you will receive the e-Visa document via email. Be sure to print a copy of this document to present upon arrival in Turkey.
  3. Visa at the Turkish Embassy/Consulate:
    • Philippine citizens who prefer not to use the e-Visa system or who have specific visa needs may apply for a visa at the nearest Turkish embassy or consulate.
    • The application process at the embassy or consulate may involve submitting a visa application form, passport-sized photos, proof of travel arrangements, proof of sufficient funds, and other supporting documents.
  4. Visa on Arrival:
    • In some cases, Philippine citizens may be eligible to obtain a visa on arrival at Turkish airports or border crossings. However, this option’s availability may vary based on specific travel circumstances, so it’s essential to check in advance.
  5. Other Types of Visas:
    • If Philippine citizens plan to study, work, or engage in other activities in Turkey, they may need to apply for a specific type of visa, such as a student visa or work visa. These visas typically require sponsorship from a Turkish educational institution or employer.
