Turkey and South Africa Relations-
*Please help us to update with correct information for Turkish Honorary Consulate General in Cape Town , if you find this information is not correct.
I am hoping you can help. I have a south African passport but live in the UK. I applied for an e-visa on the 9th June and was awarded one for travel from tomorrow the 9th July to Turkey. My friend has just informed me that they have now removed the e-visa system for south Africans. Will my e-visa that I have, still be suitable for travel tomorrow for our family holiday? My husband and children are travelling on british passports.
A woman at the Turkish Embassy in Pretoria told me that South African citizens do NOT pay for the E-Visa to visit Turkey. Please Clarify. Yours faithfully Sarah Elizabeth Scriven
