Purpose of trip for student visa



I will study a masters degree in a university in Turkey. I need to get a student visa but do not know what purpose of trip to choose in the preapplication website.

Do you know if I should choose "Education purpose" or "Course purpose"?
I saw this article:


Where it is suggested to select "Course purpose". But I wanted to confirm that is also applicable to my case.

I would appreciate any help!

Clarification re: need for e-Visa

By Michelle Mattis

I am a US citizen and will be arriving in Bodrum via a cruise ship on 30 August 2023, leaving that same day. I understand that if I stay in Bodrum, I do not need an e-Visa.

However, I am considering taking an excursion to Ephesus. Your various pages regarding the e-Visa are a bit confusing. The page dedicated to visitors from a cruise ship makes it sound like you need an e-Visa if you leave the city your ship docks in, but the page for USA citizens seems to indicate that if you arrive by cruise ship, as long as you either are on a short day-trip or short-term excursion of less than 72 hours, you don't need the e-Visa, regardless of where you go.

Please clarify whether I will need an e-Visa in the situation I describe above.

Thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter.

Best regards,
Michelle Mattis

Inquiry about transit Turkish visa amount for Omani citizen

By Hamed Al Araimi

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am an Omani citizen planning to travel to Turkey for a short transit on my way to another destination. I would like to know the amount of the transit Turkish visa for few hours.

According to the information I found, Omani citizens can apply for a Turkish e-Visa online and stay in Turkey for up to 90 days within 6 months for 61 US$ which is very expansive for the first entry. However, I am not sure if this applies to transit visas as well.

Could you please confirm if I need to apply for a Turkish e-Visa or a different type of visa for my transit? And how much is the visa fee?

I appreciate your assistance and prompt response.
