I am an Indian citizen, resident in Germany. My wife is also resident here. We are going to Turkey for a tourist visit next month. We obtained e-visas for that purpose.
After getting the visas, I came to know about some plastic surgery in Turkey that is quite expensive in Germany and my wife is keen to have it in Istanbul at the much cheaper price. I inquired about this through the Turkish online visa application system and it turned out that, for medical purposes one needs to apply at the Consulate and an e-visa is valid only for tourism and business purposes.
I would like to know, being a tourist, if my wife wants to undergo the surgery, will it be illegal in Turkish law?
Will the hospital check for her visa before giving her the treatment?
The problem is that if I need to apply via a consulate I don't now have much time.
Update: To clear any confusion, my purpose of visit is Tourism. If the medical treatment is not legal, I am not going to do that, but that's not going to stop me visiting Turkey. So, what I am saying, the sole purpose of my visit is not medical, rather my purpose is Tourism. But if its legal to have a treatment (not Emergency), then I will go for that.
