Turkey tourism visa requirements from Dubai

May 05, 2011

Two months back (March 2011), we  checked the Turkish Embassy at the Dubai World Trade Center for visa requirements. As a Filipino, we're not as privileged to be among the countries exempt from visa or of countries who can obtain visa at any Turkish border gate (If you have searched and your nationality belongs on either list, you may not read on :) ). But I'm still glad our Turkey Tourism Visa can be issued by the consulate which can be claimed the next day.On my first visit, I got these information from the paper available at the reception. Be wary though that this is as of March 2011:

BASIC VISA INFORMATION FOR FOREIGNERS
