Traveling from South Africa Cape town with Turkish airlines to Miami via Istanbul ,do I need a transit visa ?


As long as you don't exit the airport, you won't need to immigrate into Turkey and hence won't need a visa.

Make sure your connecting flight is at the same airport, as Istanbul has two international airports.
