Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 27.02.2020

In order to sustain unity in our visa regime towards the members of the European Union and Schengen area, Turkey has decided to exempt visa requirements for the citizens of Croatia, Ireland, Malta, Portugal and Norway for their touristic travels to Turkey for every 90 days within 180 day period.

This step aims at increasing our tourism potential with these countries as well as further developing our bilateral relations in other areas.
