In recent times, Turkish citizens are turning towards alternative countries

As the tourist visa process for European Schengen Zone countries becomes more challenging and the rejection rate for tourist visa applications reaches as high as 68%, Turkish citizens’ travel plans are being adversely affected, leading to the emergence of a new trend. This situation results in the cancellation of tours to European countries and prompts Turkish tourists to seek alternative countries where they can travel without a visa. To meet this demand and provide customers with various options, Erk City is preparing new tour packages.

When European Visa Requirements Get Tougher, the Search for Alternatives Begins

The increasing difficulty of tourist visa applications for European Schengen Zone countries and the high rate of visa rejections, reaching as high as 68%, seriously impact the travel plans of Turkish citizens. As a result, Turkish tourists have been forced to cancel their tours to European countries and seek alternative solutions. The rising demand for visa-free country tours by Turkish citizens has brought about a significant change in travel habits.
