My wife and I plan to arrive in Istanbul May 5, 2012.
The generic advice from our tour company is get a visa in advance.
The advice on TA is to get it at the airport, but those notes are at least a few years old, and some of the links to the Turkish embassy no longer function.
Is it still easy, straightforward for a US citizen with a valid US passport to get a 90 day single entry visa for $20 or so (in US dollars) on arrival at IST ?
Has anyone heard of any problems recently ?
Can one get a visa in advance, in person, from the embassy in NYC, and do so without a multi-week wait ?
Thanks for any advice in advance.
