How To: Turkish Visa On Pakistani Passport


If it is your first trip to Turkey, do not think the Blue Mosque or Hot Air Balloon is a cliche. And if you have been to the main cities, going back to Turkey for a relaxing short trip to spend your holidays, is a great idea.

You don’t have to stress about the Turkey visa process because it is fairly simple and the rejection rates are very low. You only need to have at least a few weeks on hand. And there is no need to go to a travel agent because the process is do-it-yourself.


  • Original Passport
  • Copy of Current & Old Passport
    Photocopy of the first two pages of both passports. Passport must be valid for at least 6 months from the date you intend to enter Turkey.
  • Two Photographs
    Recent (no later than 6 months) photographs of the applicant with the size of 5×5 cm and white background.
  • Flight Reservation
    Copy of round-trip air tickets. Remember these don’t need to be “paid” before you get the visa.
  • Bank statement & Account Maintenance Certificate
    Past 3-month bank statement showing proof of sufficient funds (at least $60 per day). The current balance should cover all the expenses (air ticket + accommodation + food and beverages).
  • Hotel bookings
    Reserve free-cancellation, no pre-payment accommodation, this does not need to be the actual reservation, if you like you can change these later.
  • Letter from employer, verifying your occupation
    This letter needs to state your position, designation, NIC number, salary and the time since you are working at the said company; signed by your employer, basically confirming that you actually work where you are saying you do.
  • Travel health insurance certificate
    covering the minimum of Euros 30, the period of stay in Turkey.
  • Polio vaccination certificate
    Obtain from the Government Hospitals or the authorized laboratories (The validity of the vaccination should cover the travel period and the vaccination’s date should not be more than one year old)
  • Consent letter of the applicant (for verification of documents)
    A letter stating your intention and consent to take this trip.

    Thank you so very much. I and my fiance are getting married soon and we want to go there on our honeymoon. May I ask;

    1) My wife is Irish-Pakistani. Does she need a visa too or would she need a visa on arrival? Is there a fee for visa on arrival?

    2) 90 days is the validity of the visa right? starting from the date visa got approved?
