In new rules relating to the entry of foreign passport-holders to Turkey;
as from 1 January 2015 passports should have at least 60 days validity from the date of expiry of a traveller's visa, visa exemption period or residency permit to be able to enter the country.
The new rules form part of Turkey’s responsibilities within the framework of its European Union negotiation accession process, including as signatory to relevant international agreements within this framework.
Travellers without the required period of validity on passports will regrettably not be allowed entry into Turkey due to this new legal regulation as of 1 January 2015.
