Do Nigerians need to apply for a Turkish visa and what kind of visas are you able to apply for?

Nigerians who wish to visit Turkey will need a visa to do so. Before applying for your Turkish visa, you will need to ensure that you have a valid passport as without this, you cannot apply for any kind of visa or do any international travel. To be granted a Turkish visa, make sure that your passport is valid for at least 6 months from the date of your return. For peace of mind, always apply for your visa at least 8 weeks ahead of your intended flight.

Depending on the reasons for visiting Turkey, you will need a different type of visa for your time spent there. The visa options are:

  • Tourist
  • Business
  • Transit
  • Student
  • Working

For this article, we will be looking at how you can apply for your Tourist Visa. A tourist visa is a single-entry visa, meaning that once you’ve entered Turkey, you may not do so again without reapplying for another Turkish visa.

How much will a Turkish visa cost?

Application fee: ₦ 90000.00 ($ 250.00)

Service fee: ₦ 21240.00 ($ 59.00)

What’s needed for your Turkish visa application

  • An application fee that is non-refundable.

  • Proof of accommodation: hotel reservations (booking papers to say where you’ll be staying, and for how long) or if staying with friends, a letter of invitation stating so.
  • Proof of health insurance.
  • Vaccination card (Nigerians will need to get immunisation shots against yellow fever and typhoid).
  • Proof of payment for visa application, as well as visa processing fee.

To get your visa process started, applicants MUST first apply online as only once this is completed will the application be taken further. After the online application, Nigerian applicants will then need to set up an appointment to appear in person at the Turkish embassy in Abuja.
