    • Before you fly to Turkey, you need a Turkish visa. If you applied for the Turkish Evisa via as a Kenya ordinary passport holder…you are supposed to have a round-trip ticket on Turkish Airlines, Pegasus Airlines, Onur Air or Atlasglobal Airlines. If you applied for the visa the Embassy in Nairobi, then there are usually no restrictions on which airline to use.
