Turkish and Lebanese citizens no longer have to obtain prior visas when visiting each other’s countries, Turkey has opened a visa office which will issue a travel visa to foreign nationals that want to visit Turkey.

Turkish Ambassador to Lebanon Cagatay Erciyes reported that all foreigners in Lebanon will be able to obtain Turkish visas through this office. 

The new office could allow Turkish embassy staff to process up to 100 visa applications per day. According to the ambassador, the new bureau would be of particular importance to Syrian and Palestinian refugees.
