Heading to Turkey soon? Make sure that you read this - and check the expiry dates on your passport.

For foreign passport-holders entering Turkey, passports must be valid for at least 60 days from the date of expiry of a traveller's visa, visa exemption period or residency permit to be able to enter the country before December 31, 2014.

Put simply, that means a traveller leaving Turkey on August 20 should hold a passport that is valid until at least October 20, 2014.

As from January 1, 2015, passports must be valid for at least 60 days from the date of expiry of a traveller's visa, visa exemption period or residency permit to be able to enter the country. So a traveller with a visa expiry date of May 20, 2015 must hold a passport that is valid until at least July 20, 2015.

Remember that travellers without the required period of validity on passports will not be allowed entry into Turkey due to this new legal regulation.
