U.S. Passport


Please be advised that to travel abroad for your medical tourism procedure, you'll need to obtain a valid passport. The Passport Services Office provides information and services to American citizens about how to obtain, replace or change a passport.

A passport is an internationally recognized travel document that verifies the identity and nationality of the bearer. A valid U.S. passport is required to enter and leave most foreign countries. Only the U.S. Department of State has the authority to grant, issue or verify United States passports. A passport is necessary for all health tourism and  medical travel excursions.

New Application for a U.S. Passport

To obtain a passport for the first time, you need to go in person to one of 7,000 passport acceptance facilities located throughout the United States with two photographs of yourself, proof of U.S. citizenship, and a valid form of photo identification such as a driver’s license.

Acceptance facilities include many Federal, state and probate courts, post offices, some public libraries and a number of county and municipal offices. There are also 13 regional passport agencies, which serve customers who are traveling within 2 weeks (14 days), or who need foreign visas for travel. Appointments are required in such cases.

You’ll need to apply in person if you are applying for a U.S. passport for the first time; if your expired U.S. passport is not in your possession; if your previous U.S. passport has expired and was issued more than 15 years ago; or if your previous U.S. passport was issued when you are under 16 your currently valid U.S. passport has been lost of stolen.

Tourist & Business Visas

A visa is a form issued by a visa officer. This form is placed in your passport to show that you have met the requirements for admission to Turkey. A visa may be for a single entry, for multiple entries, or for transit purposes. The tourist visa is good for a year and allows the U.S citizens to stay in Turkey for 3 months in each stay (with multiple entries).

U.S citizens may obtain their tourist visas upon entry at ANY point in Turkey or from the Turkish consulates around the U.S. However, application for a business visa must be done ahead of time, before entering Turkey.
