Travelling from Canada with connection in Istanbul to Athens
Save

I am a Canadian citizen with a updated passport. Do I need a Visa for either of these countries? I will be connecting in Istanbul for Athens within 4 hours of landing in Istanbul. With that short a time frame I will not be leaving the airport.

Thanks

murphy1955, You will remain at the transit area at the airport and thus need no visa if you are flying with Turkish Airlines on a single ticket all the way through Athens from Canada. Just make sure all your luggage is checked through Athens at Canada.

If you are on separate airlines, you need an evisa, "www.evisa.gov.tr", because you will have to go through passport control to retrieve your luggage and recheck in again with the second airline.

good luck,
