The U.S. Suspends All Nonimmigrant Visa Services at All U.S. Diplomatic Facilities in Turkey

October 8, 2017, the U.S. Mission to Turkey posted a message on Twitter announcing that in response to recent events in Turkey it has suspended all nonimmigrant visa services at all U.S. diplomatic facilities in Turkey.

In response, the government of Turkey has also announced the immediate suspension of visa services to U.S. citizens. This includes the issuance of physical "sticker" visas at border posts, and the online Turkish electronic visa (e-visa). U.S. citizens planning travel to Turkey, and who have questions regarding this regulation should contact the closest Embassy or Consulate of Turkey, or the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The U.S. Embassy in Ankara, the Consulate General in Istanbul, the Consulate in Adana and the Consular Agency in Izmir remain open, and continue to provide services to U.S. citizens in Turkey. For further detailed information regarding Turkey and travel visit the State Department's travel website.
