In the spirit of open borders, Turkey has recently eased entry restrictions for Armenian citizens and cruise visitors. This article reviews both types of visas that are now available in Turkey. If you’re traveling to Turkey soon, you’ll want to know more about these new rules!
What is an Armenian Visa?
Table of Contents
Armenian citizens can obtain a visa on arrival at any port of entry in Turkey. Cruise passengers are not allowed to enter Turkey without a valid visa. If you are traveling to Turkey as a tourist, you will need to apply for a visa through the Turkish consulate in your country of residence. You will be required to provide your passport information, proof of travel arrangements, and an application fee. The consulate will then issue you with a visa which should be carried with you when entering Turkey. Turkey Visa for Armenian Citizens
How do I Get a Turkey Visa?
Currently, there are no Turkey visa requirements for Armenian citizens other than a passport valid for at least six months after your planned departure date. If you’re a cruise passenger, you don’t need to obtain a visa in advance – once you arrive in Turkey, you’ll be able to visit any of the country’s ports of entry without one.
If you’re travelling to Turkey as part of a tour group or organized trip, your travel agent or tour operator can help you get the proper documentation and paperwork required for your stay. Generally speaking, all that’s needed is an itinerary and confirmation from your travel agency that the group has been officially registered with the Turkish authorities.
If everything goes according to plan, getting a turkey visa shouldn’t be too difficult. However, if something unexpected pops up (a last-minute change in plans), don’t hesitate to reach out to your travel agent or consulate for support. In either case, it’s always best to contact Turkish officials well in advance of your stay so that any bureaucratic hiccups can be avoided…
What is the Cost of a Turkey/Armenian Visa?
If you are a citizen of Armenia, you may be able to visit Turkey visa-free for up to 90 days in a 180 day period. As of November 1st, 2018, cruise passengers also have the opportunity to obtain a Turkish visa waiver upon arrival in Turkey. The cost of a Turkish visa depends on your nationality and can range from $25 USD to $60 USD. Please note that the fee is non-refundable and must be paid at the time of application.

Does Your Visa Include a Tourist Voucher for the ship’s tours?
If you are a citizen of Armenia and you are traveling to Turkey on a cruise, you may be eligible for a tourist visa. The tourist visa allows you to stay in Turkey for up to 30 days. This visa is not the same as the visa that is required to enter Turkey. The tourist visa allows you to visit only the coastal cities of Istanbul and Antalya. You cannot travel further inland or visit any other locations in Turkey.
To qualify for a tourist visa, you must provide documentation proving your citizenship and your travel plans. You will also need to provide your passport photo and two recent passport-style photos that show your face clearly. You will also need to pay the fee for a tourist visa. If you are traveling with a group, each member of the group must pay the fee separately.
When you arrive in Turkey, make sure that you have everything that you need for your trip: your passport, plane ticket, hotel reservation confirmation, and proof of payment for your tourist visa fee. You will not be allowed into Turkey if you do not have these items.
If you’re an Armenian citizen traveling to Turkey and plan on spending more than three months in the country, you’ll need to apply for a visa. If you’re traveling as part of a cruise ship, your travel itinerary will determine whether or not you need a visa. Make sure to check with the Turkish consulate in your area before departure so that you can get all the necessary paperwork sorted out!
