In April 2013, the Turkish government launched an easy online visa system that issues an e-Visa instead of the old sticker visa. The e-Visa document can be obtained online in as little as 15 minutes. Once the information and payment is submitted, the visa is emailed to the traveler, and must be downloaded and printed out. The e-Visa should be shown to airport and customs officials in Turkey and kept safe for the duration of the stay. The e-Visa means no more going to local embassies or waiting in line at the airport to obtain a visa.
