Students who are not Turkish citizens require a student visa to enter Turkey. Student visas must be obtained before coming to Turkey from a Turkish Consulate. International students who are accepted for studies at İstanbul Okan University will receive a “Full Acceptance Letter” to facilitate their student visa application to the Turkish Consulate in their home country. The process of issuing a visa for Turkey generally takes around 6 weeks. Please consult the website of the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs to learn the addresses and contact information of Turkish Embassies and Consulate Generals in your home country.
