Visa Requirements

The students must obtain a Student Visa from the Turkish Consulate before they enter Turkey for their study. The Student Visa cannot be accepted after arrival, and a tourist visa is not acceptable as a substitute. Incoming students are recommended to apply for the visa at least two months before the term begins. Exceptions are legal dependents of someone in Turkey on a diplomatic passport or with a work visa.

Required documents for visa application:

  • Passport (should be valid at least for a year)
  • The completed visa application form is taken from the Turkish Embassy or Consulate
  • Six passport size photographs taken recently
  • Proof of their student status in their home university
  • Acceptance letter from Ankara Medipol University
  • Non-refundable processing fee

As visa regulations may change quite frequently, students are suggested to contact the nearest Turkish Embassy or Consulate in their country to obtain the most up-to-date and detailed information.

Phone Calls

Public payphones can be found in almost all academic units besides the post office. They operate on credit phone cards which can be bought from the post offices as well as stationeries. To make an international call, one needs to dial 00 before dialling the international code of the country to be phoned to. In Turkey, three cell phone companies operate namely Turk cell, Vodafone and Avea. All of these companies provide a variety of tariffs responding to the needs of the customers. The students can buy a mobile number from any of these companies and use it with their mobile phones.

Turkey uses a conventional European system in electricity working on 220 volts. The sockets are two-pin.
