Canadians are required to obtain visas in order to enter Turkey. The Embassy of Turkey in Ottawa, Canada accepts applications for visas. Ordinary Canadian passport holders can also obtain 3-month multiple entry visas at the Turkish border gates. The visas obtainable upon arrival are subject to a cash only payment, in USD or Euro.
All visitors to Turkey are advised to ensure that they get entry stamps on their passport upon arrival. Failure to get the entry stamp could lead to serious difficulties upon departure.
Those caught overstaying the duration of their visas without proper authority run the risk of paying substantial fines, detention, possible deportation and banning from re-entering Turkey.
