E-Consulate attracts big interest

Interest in the e-Consulate, a new service offered by the Foreign Ministry to better serve Turkish citizens residing abroad and foreigners interested in Turkey, is growing by the day.

E-Consulate makes it possible to complete certain procedures over the internet and pay the application fees by credit card without ever having to pay a personal visit to a consulate. According to the Foreign Ministry, the service is being used extensively by Turks resident abroad. E-Consulate, which went into effect in February of this year in western Europe, has 4208 members up to now.
