Visa Requirements

First things first, let’s talk about who needs a visa to enter Turkey. Visa requirements for Turkey vary depending on your passport type:

  • Official Passport Holders: If you hold an official passport, you are required to obtain a visa to enter Turkey.
  • Ordinary Passport Holders: Ordinary passport holders from Nigeria must also secure a visa to visit Turkey.

However, there is good news for certain passport holders. If you have a valid visa or residence permit from Schengen member countries, the USA, UK, or Ireland, you can obtain a single-entry e-Visa for Turkey, which is valid for one month. This e-Visa can be applied for online.

Diplomatic passport holders are the exception to the rule. They do not need a visa for stays in Turkey lasting up to 90 days.

E-Visa Option

Nigerian citizens are eligible to apply for an e-Visa to Turkey in special conditions. The e-Visa fee for a single entry is 50 USD. This option offers a convenient way to obtain your visa without visiting the Turkish embassy or consulate.

For those not eligible for the e-Visa option or if you plan to stay in Turkey for more than one month, the regular visa application process is as follows:

  • All visa applications for Turkey must be made through the Pre-Application System of Turkish Sticker Visa, which can be accessed here.
  • Applicants will need to upload the required data for their visa applications onto the online system.
