Pinoys Traveling to Turkey Reminded of Passport-Visa Requirements

Filipinos traveling to Turkey were reminded to make sure their passports or travel documents have an expiration date at least 60 days beyond that of their visas.

The Philippine Consulate General in Hong Kong said this policy by Turkey’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs had been in effect since Jan. 1.

“(E)ffective 1 January 2015, foreigners which includes Filipinos who wish to enter Turkey must carry a passport or travel document with an expiration date of at least 60 days beyond the expiration date of their visa, visa exemption certificate or residence permit,” it said in a Feb. 15 advisory.

It said Filipinos should “take note of this requirement when traveling to Turkey.”

Citing an example, the Consulate General said those with visas or residence permits that expire June 12 must make sure their passports are valid until at least Aug. 11.
