Turkey and VFS Global has announced the launch of Turkey Visa Application Centres (VAC) across 16 cities in India. Moreover, two more centres are also being launched in Nepal and Maldives. The launch was announced by Burak Akçapar, Ambassador of the Republic of Turkey to India, Nepal and Maldives, at the agreement signing ceremony, attended by senior consular officials and members from the trade fraternity, in New Delhi.
As an exclusive partnership, VFS Global has become the only authorised visa processing service provider in the three countries for Turkey. Services at all locations will commence from April 1, 2016.

Currently, we are receiving about 100 visa applications a day. This is a major improvement which gives the applicants a better and easier visa service...We are determined to do our best to open the gates wider for Indian nationals who wish to visit Turkey, which is already one of the top destinations for tourism worldwide. I believe that the launch of these visa centres will contribute to the enhancement of the cooperation between Turkey and India in the fields of tourism and economy.”
