Visas

Its Mediterranean climate makes Turkey an ideal year round destination. Most people choose to visit during Spring or Autumn, but the country enjoys sunny days right through the year. Along the coast, long hot summer days are tempered by refreshing sea breezes. Further inland, low humidity makes travel both relaxing and comfortable. Average temperatures for Istanbul and Kusadasi are:

Turkish lira is the local currency and can be readily obtained from banks, ATMs or money exchanges. While it is possible to tour using only ATMs, we recommend taking some cash and a credit card too.

Australians travelling to Turkey as a tourist or for business should apply for an e-visa online at www.evisa.gov.tr prior to travel. The current cost is 60USD (subject to change). Australians will have a maximum stay of 90 days within a 180 day period for tourists. New Zealand citizens who intend to travel to Turkey for tourism-related purposes for up to 90days do not require a visa in advance of travel to Turkey. Provided they can show sufficient funds to support themselves and evidence of onward travel bookings, they are usually granted entry to Turkey for a period of 90 days. All other visa types should be requested through your nearest Turkish Embassy or Consulate.

Light comfortable travel clothing is the most suitable for touring, but do consider your chosen travel season when packing. If you plan to visit Turkey’s famous mosques, ladies should also bring a scarf.
