I plan to travel to Turkey from July 4th-July 10th for work. I'm a US citizen.
I went through a travel agent to purchase the ticket and they filled out an e-visa on my behalf. But they for some reason put the "valid from" date as July 4th, the day I arrive in Turkey, and not an earlier date or at least the date I will be leaving the country (my flight will be at 8:50 pm July 3rd). It has me so worried. I feel as if the airline may not allow me to board because my visa isn't technically valid, even though I certainly will still be in the US those 3 hours till my visa validity begins.
I have attempted to contact Turkish Airlines, and they told me to contact the embassy of Turkey regarding this and I have no idea how to reach them. Every number I dial is not working it seems. I have contacted the official e-Visa website and am waiting for a response.
When boarding, will the airline use the arrival date for figuring the validity of the visa?? Or does it have to be the date I depart?
I apologize once again for the confusing question. This is my first time traveling while using a visa.
