tourist visas for UK citizens and their Filipina wives (with UK residence)
  • What is the current Turkish tourist visa status, for a UK visitor arriving at Istanbul airport next March (2011) with his Philippine wife (UK residential rights)?
  • As far as I'm aware a UK visitor will still be able to buy a tourist visa for £10 at the point of entry i.e. the airport. Your wife's status however depends on her passport - UK residential rights apply to the UK not Turkey. Check out the consulate website for the latest news on visas and to email the consulate - http://www.turkishconsulate.org.uk/en/visa.asp?PageID=3#3
    At the moment a Philippine passport holder needs to apply to the consulate for a visa and have the equivalent of 50US Dollars a day for their stay.
    Hope this gives you a starting point!

Howdy, Stranger!
