Turkish Student Visa
According to legislation of the Republic of Turkey, all students entering Turkey from other countries for long-term study must have student visas, irrespectively of the visa regime between Turkey and the student’s country.
A student visa can be received from Turkish consulate in relevant country after signing an education contract and payment of education services.
The following basic documents are needed for receiving a student visa:
However, the list of required documents can be extended in some consulates. Therefore, it is strongly recommended before submission to a consulate to clarify with them the list of the required documents.
Documents for a student visa should be submitted 1.5-2 months prior to commencement of study. Generally, a student visa is issued for one year period. Further prolongation of legal residence will be formalised at the study place.
A ready visa should be received only at the place of visa documents submission and before departure to Turkey.
Beginning from the date of arrival for study, a student has 30 days to obtain a residence permit. The Academy of Tourism in Antalya provides all students with necessary assistance in obtaining residence permits. For this purpose, a student must submit all required documents within one month from the date of entry to the country. The list of documents needed or issue of a residence permit and formalisation procedure will be sent to the student immediately after sending a study invitation.
