I have received conflicting information form Royal Caribbean regarding tourist visas in Turkey. When I called 1-800-327-6700, they told me that you need a visa (but if you book an excursion thru RCCL, you are covered). When I called customer service at 1-800-529-6918, they said U.S citizens do not need visas in Turkey.
We have booked a private tour for 35 people in Turkey and the tour company said no visa is required since we aren't staying overnight and are "in transit" passengers. Our travel agent said tourist visas are required and you can purchase a tourist visa sticker at the port of entry for $20.
Can anyone who's been to Kusadasi help clarify? Thank you.
