turkishApplying for visa requires much time and money. To avoid the same, the Turkish embassy in Vietnam has introduced a digital visitor visa for Vietnamese people which is a smart substitute for hard visa.

The new visa was launched in cooperation with Turkish Airlines on Tuesday.

Applicants can receive an e-visa by filling out a form on the Turkish immigration agency website and paying with a credit card. The visa will be sent to their email, Saigon Tiep Thi reported.

A hard copy visa requires one to submit packs of documents and wait between three weeks to a month for the result.

Eligible applicants are those visiting for tourism or work purposes, using Turkish Airlines round-trip tickets, and holding valid passports.

One important requirement is a valid Schengen visa issued for a group of European countries or an OECD visa for a group of 34 countries in Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, which also includes the US and Canada.

An e-visa costs US$20 and can be used for up to 30 days for single entry and can be used before it expires in six months.

The embassy said developing e-visas was part of an effort by the two governments to facilitate tourism and bilateral trade.
