Visa for South African to Turkey

edited December 2010 in - Turkey
I am a South African resident in the UK on a South African passport. Do I need a Schengen visa to visit Turkey or can I get the visa on arrival in Turkey?

    You can get your visa at the Turkish border upon arrival. You do not need a Schengen visa to enter Turkey.

    Thanks for the feedback for visa for South African to Turkey. :) I am travelling to Turkey in a few weeks and my status is also South African living in London. I would like to know if the status to obtain a sticker visa is still the same for South Africans living in London? Thank you :)

    Did you manage to find out what the current situation is regarding needing a visa? Has anything changed?
    Any help you could give would be brilliant!

    Hi guys, you can check this page for Turkey visa information. Keep in mind that it's always a good idea to contact your embassy though, as things can sometimes change without warning.
