New e visa system
« on: May 26, 2013, 10:46:24 PM »
As the season is now underway I was just wondering if anyone has had experience of the new e visa system and if so did it all run smoothly?

Are thy geared up for it at Dalaman airport or  is it still in the "teething stage?"

Not travelling till August but just trying to get a feel for what is going to be the best way.

I believe from a different forum that after a bit of initial confusion at Dalaman immigration it is now ok. It costs 20 US$, about £13. You can of course just queue for a £10 stamp. This is the link.

Better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt :)

Think i'd rather line up and get a stamp..Customs men are very stern looking at Dalaman and always seem to go over my passport with a fine toothcomb while staring at me intently!!..don't think I'd trust an heres one I made earlier approach...by contrast our customs are like being quizzed by Harry Hill!!  ;)

Yes £3 more. Personally I'd queue for a stamp as if you are through immigration too quickly you will still have to wait for your luggage.

Hi I heard on Trip Advisor about these E Visas with mixed views, one traveller was still made to queue up at the visa section, I'm not sure if they were made to pay or not they didn't say, but i got the impression he had to queue to get his passport stamped, they just complained about still having to queue up.  We have decided not to bother with the E Visa and just pay £10.

Well it doesn't seem as though there is much to be gained then by doing it in advance - more to pay and possibly still have to queue. I've only been to Turkey once, but I remember feeling like I was trying to bribe an official as I passed over my passport with a tenner in it!

Not long for you now Kalkan4eve? Bet you're getting excited. Hope you have a great time and look forward to your reports, especially on Palm Beach Club, as I have a feeling we will be going there quite a lot as its in walking distance to our villa. Enjoy!
