I got the Turkey e-visa several times with my schengen visa. In the e-visa form there is a condition

I have a round-trip ticket with Turkish Airlines, Pegasus Airlines, Onur Air or Egypt Air.

What if I am traveling from another country to Turkey or using another airlines like Nile Air form Egypt?

I contacted the Airlines and they confirmed e-visa will work, thinking about it; visa on arrival is independent from the airline, so even e-visa says you have to fly with Turkish airlines or EgyptAir, I can get visa on arrival.

During check-in with NileAir I signed a form that they are not responsible about any issue happen due to visa; which means sometimes people face problem and it is not 100% guarantee it will work.

After arrival at Sabiha airport, passport control was easy and they accepted the e-visa.

I am sharing this with you so people can see real example not just references from internet.

Then you're not eligible for e-visa, according to prerequisites which state it pretty clearly:

You must meet all the requirements listed below in order to obtain an e-Visa. Please confirm that you meet these criteria by clicking the boxes next to them. If you do not meet any of these requirements and you proceed with your application, your e-Visa will be invalid.

  • I can prove that I hold a return ticket, hotel reservation and at
    least 50 $ per each day of my stay.
  • I am travelling for the purposes of tourism or business.
  • I have a round-trip ticket with Turkish Airlines, Pegasus Airlines, Onur Air or Egypt Air.
  • I hold a passport valid for at least 6 months from the date I intend to enter Turkey.
  • I am below 20 or over 45 years old; or I have a valid Supporting Document (Valid visa OR valid residence permit from one of the Schengen Countries, USA, UK or Ireland). E-visas are not accepted as supporting documents.
  • I confirm that I meet each and every one of the conditions listed above.

You would not be able to apply for an e-Visa. The reference is very specific to be eligible to apply electronically, as outlined by the information provided by the Embassy of Turkey in Cairo. It makes it very clear that you have to satisfy all of the conditions listed (emphasis mine):

    • I hold a passport valid for at least 6 months from the date I intend to enter Turkey.
    • I am below 20 or over 45 years old; or I have a valid Supporting Document (Valid visa OR valid residence permit from one of the Schengen Countries, USA, UK or Ireland). E-visas are not accepted as supporting documents.
    • I confirm that I meet each and every one of the conditions listed above.
