Turkey holidays could be about to get a lot cheaper for Brits, as the Turkish authorities have revealed plans to scrap charges for visas.
The new rules are set to kick off from March 2020, and will mean that Brits will no longer have to pay a fee of approximately £27 each for the e-Visa.
The visas are required for both adults and children – so once the charges are scrapped, it could save a family of four over £100 on a holiday to Turkey.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced in a statement: "As of 2 March 2020, Turkey has decided to exempt visa requirements for the members of the European Union Schengen area, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, Poland as well as the United Kingdom citizens for touristic travels to Turkey for every 90 days within 180 day period.
The FCO travel advice for Turkey explains: "The Turkish government advise that your passport should be valid for at least 6 months from the date you enter Turkey and that there is a full blank page for the entry and exit stamps. You can find more detail about the requirements for entry into Turkey on the website of the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs."
