US Citizens do indeed require a visa to visit Turkey, whilst Swedish citizens do not (for a stay of up to 90 days). Unlike some countries, Turkey visas are little more than a fee payment - at least when purchased on arrival. In purchasing multiple of them I've never had them even look at my passport beyond opening it to a blank page and sticking in the ...
