Visa Procedure

The procedure to obtain a visa to attend the Istanbul Forum has been simplified.

All visas for the participants to the Forum are free of charge.

The participants should complete the registration form electronically through this web site. The invitation or confirmation letter obtained after the registration can be used to apply for the visa.

Visas can be obtained at the nearest Turkish Embassy or Consulate General.

Participants resident in countries where Turkey does not have a diplomatic mission will be able to receive their visas at the airport upon their arrival. Once registered, their names will be communicated to the Istanbul International Atatürk Airport, where a special Forum desk will be set up to assist the participants to obtain their visas.
