So I've had to get three visas for Turkey in the last couple of years and each time it cost € 15 / $ 20.
But a few days ago I met some Australian travellers here in Georgia who just came from Turkey and they told me that very recently (June 2012 or just before) the price has tripled, just for us, to € 45 / $ 60!
Can anybody tell me why? Did my government do anything to upset the Turkish government? Might it go back down again soon if some diplomatic faux pas is patched up? Was there some official announcement explaining it or did it just happen silently?
