I will be shortly travelling to Belgrade, Serbia via Istanbul, Turkey. I have a stop over of 1 hour 35 minutes duration. Do I require an e-visa for this purpose?

If your trip is in one booking, then as stated in Timatic, the database used by Airlines:

TWOV (Transit Without Visa): - Holders of confirmed onward tickets for a max. transit time of 24 hours.

Otherwise, it depends on what passport you hold.


That depends:

  • If you booked it as single journey. You will just go to next flight. There should be a security check too. No passport control!

  • If you booked it separately. Then,

    • If you dont have a checked-in luggage, just consult to transit desk they will provide you the ticket for the next flight and you go to gate via the transit area.
    • If you have a checked-in luggage, you need to pass custom which means you need e-visa and 1 h 35 mins will not be enough to pass control, take luggage, check-in again and go through the pass control and security again.
