In few months I would be flying from BOM - X - YUL (Montreal, Canada) . Now for X, one of the options is/was Istanbul Airport in part due to the free city tour they provide. But now I read that you would need a visa to do that. I looked at the FAQ , was able get to the link about visas but am confused by the double-speak. Could somebody explain what I should be doing -
India: Diplomatic passport holders are exempt from visa for their travels to Turkey up to 90 days. Ordinary, Special and Service passport holders are required to have visa to enter Turkey. Ordinary, Special and Service passport holders with a valid Schengen members or USA, UK, Ireland visa or residence permit may get their single entry e-Visas valid for one month via the website www.evisa.gov.tr, provided that they meet certain conditions.
Now I don't have diplomatic passport holders nor would I be going to any of those other places. The e-visa link http://www.mfa.gov.tr/data/KONSOLOSLUK/e-visa-fees-en-31-december.pdf doesn't mention Indians anywhere :(
Can somebody help or make sense of this gobbley-gook?
