Beginning from 5 January 2016, all kinds of applications for Turkish visas will have to be made through the Pre-Application System of Turkish Sticker Visa (www.visa.gov.tr). 

Data required for visa applications will be uploaded to the system by the applicants. Following the online application, the applicants should apply to the Turkish Missions to complete the procedures including submission of their visa application forms duly signed and their passports as well as original copies of the application documents that have been already uploaded on the system.

Turkish Consulate General in London will only accept visa applications through Pre-Application System beginning from 5 January 2016. Applicants who already got an appointment for 5 January 2016 and afterwards should come to the Consulate after completing their online pre-application. The appointments already taken will be valid and should not be taken again through the new system.

According to the new regulation all applicants are required to have a medical insurance that will be valid during their stay in Turkey.

Representatives of tour operators need to obtain a "Tour Operator Rep." visa. This type of visa is multiple-entry, and allows holders to stay up to 8 months a year without needing a work permit. Please note that this visa can be issued once in a period of 12 months.
