Obtaining a student visa before departing your home country is a requirement for formal
registration as a student at a Turkish university. Therefore, students who come to Turkey
without a student visa will neither be allowed to register as a student at the university nor
receive a residency permit once in the country. Student candidates must keep in mind that
policies may be subject to change.
Based on the following program criteria can a student visa be obtained.
Although a time limit will be indicated on your visa, your student visa remains valid as long as
you are enrolled at school.
Note that rules seem to change regularly, so see www.e-konsolosluk.net or

or Consulate in your home country for the latest information about visa requirements.
