Student Visa


Student Visa

You should obtain your student visa before departure at your home country. It is a requirement for formal registration as a student at a Turkish university. Therefore, students who come to Turkey without a student visa will neither be allowed to register as a student at the university nor receive a resident permit once in the country.

Timing of your visa application is important and has important consequences. Visa procedures usually take 6 to 8 weeks on average. Therefore, you should apply as soon as you receive your official acceptance letter from Istanbul Okan University.

The student visa will be stamped in your passport.

Important Notice: Visa procedures may change; please either consult or the Turkish Embassy or Consulate in your home country for the latest information about visa requirements.
