    • No, on a tourist visa you cannot convert to study status. However, you can visit a university and apply for an admission if they do so. After that, you will still need to go back to Pakistan and visit Turkish Embassy along with admission letter to get a study visa.

  2. Hi iam serious to apply for student visa for Turkey.
    I just need to ask some more information. Could you please send me your contact details.

  3. I got accepted to METU Ankara university on 100% tuition waiver. So I do not have any tuition fee. So, my bank statement would not need to show the amount required for tuition, right?

    Also, the university says that once I go to Turkey I will need a health insurance that I can get from General Health Insurance service once I get the residence permit. So, is it still necessary that I get a health insurance from Pakistan before I go? I am confused because the Turkish embassy says that I need to have a travel health insurance certificate for the Visa.

    • Yes, travel health and Formal health insurance are two different things. Travel insurance will not cost you more than 11 Thousand Pakistani Rupees. It is the requirement of Embassy. Whereas Health insurance is the requirement for your stay in Turkey.
