The Turkish government has decided to lift the 100-euro visa fee for Indian citizens traveling to Turkey. The step came as Turkey wants to attract more Indian tourists and Indian weddings, a market worth $8-10 billion, to the country.
Yücel Okutur, chairman of Dalaman, Ortaca and Köyceğiz Association of Touristic Hoteliers and Tourism Operators (DOKTOB) said, "Under the instructions of Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım, Turkey has decided that it will not charge the 100-euro visa fee from the Indian tourists."
According to the Turkish daily Habertürk, the initiative will also open doors to more Indian films and weddings in Turkey.
Last week, Okutur and deputies from Muğla visited Turkish Airlines (THY) Chairman İlker Aycı to arrange direct flights to the area.
"We are also working on scheduling direct flights to Dalaman," he said.
