In a significant move towards fostering international relations and promoting tourism, Turkey has lifted visa requirements for citizens of six nations, as announced in a presidential decree published in the country’s Official Gazette on Saturday. This strategic decision, signed by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on December 23, marks a pivotal development under Article 18 of the Law on Foreigners and International Protection No. 6458.

Expanded Visa-Free Access

Effective immediately, nationals from the United States, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Canada, Saudi Arabia, and Oman are now granted visa-free access to Turkey. Under the new decree, tourists from these countries can enjoy a 90-day stay every 180 days without the need for a visa, unlocking more significant opportunities for cross-cultural exchange and travel.

Why Turkish Passport?

This diplomatic initiative not only enhances Turkey’s standing as a tourist-friendly destination but also underscores the potential benefits of holding a Turkish passport. The newfound accessibility for citizens of these six nations opens doors to explore Turkey’s rich history, vibrant culture, and picturesque landscapes without the bureaucratic hurdles of visa applications.
