Default Re: Visas in Eastern Mediterranean

Everyone is right about the visa requirement for Turkey. We are leaving on a cruise in a few weeks and it ends in Turkey. The cruise company (which I will not mention) referred us to a "courier" service that takes care of procuring the visas for you. The fee was outrageous. Over $200 which included postage-this is for two persons. I just did an email to the Turkish embassy in Washington, DC and got an immediate reply with the procedure and the cost. It is $45 plus the cost of postage. I sent it out on a Tuesday and received it back from them on Saturday. It was all very efficient and prompt--not to mention the money I saved by not using the courier service. Have a great trip.--Robb
