I am thinking of applying for a tourist visa for Turkey. I am a citizen of a country that do not qualify for the Turkish e-visa and I live in Germany (with a blue card residence permit). After filling out their online form, a list of the required documents was given according to my information input. There are some parts that are a bit confusing for me, including:
- If you have an invitation letter from person(s) in Turkey, before submitting your invitation to the Turkish consulate, make sure that the letter includes the inviting person's TR, etc.
This part suggests that the letter is optional.
- Documents attesting to the income status of the applicant and inviting person
- Hotel booking or invitation etc...
Question: Do I need a letter from a Turkish citizen or is it something extra to support my application?
PS: I tried contacting them but had no luck. I am not visiting any particular person.
