Am a non EU citizen but my husband is. We live and work in UK and I have a residential permit. I'm looking to book a holiday to Turkey for my hubby and I for 5 days. Do I need to apply for a visa to do so?

Turkey is not an EU member country, so travelling with your (EU citizen) spouse probably won't give you extra rights with regards to Turkey... What is your citizenship? –  Jonik Jan 20 '13 at 22:13

As it already has been stated weather your husband is an EU citizen is irrelevant. What counts is your nationality and personal information. Whether you need a visa primarily depends on your nationality. Facts like remaining validity of your passport, your country of residence, might have an effect as well. The IATA has a handy webservice where your can check whether you need a visa or not. If you are a canadian born in 1980 living in the UK, with a valid passport until 2015 (some random data I entered) you don't need a visa.

+1 for the link. That is extremely useful. –  Kris Jan 21 '13 at 10:48

You cannot rely on your visa when traveling with someone else. Every person needs their own visa to justify their own permit to enter the country.

Since Turkey is not a part of the EU, you will have to find out by each of your nationality if you are able to enter Turkey without a visa.
