We would like to advise travellers to Turkey that you need to have a blank page available in your passport to accommodate the Turkish entry visa and entry/exit stamps*.
If you do not have a blank page in your passport the Turkish Authorities will issue a one-off "Entry-Exit form" and put your entry-exit stamp on there. You should carry this form with you throughout your stay and present it to the border officers, when you leave Turkey.
*Only applicable to countries where an entry visa for Turkey is required â€“ this includes UK passport holders. If you are unsure about entry visa requirements for your nationality you should check directly with the Turkish Embassy.

In order to facilitate a smooth flight check-in process, please ensure you have the following information at hand for all travellers in your party when you book your flights with Club La Costa Travel:
Royal Caribbean International takes the security and safety of its guests very seriously. Its 'Travelling with Minors' policy was introduced primarily to safeguard children and to ensure that the responsible adult with whom they are travelling has the appropriate authority and the legal right to do so throughout the duration of their cruise holiday.
These measures are in place to protect children and to ensure no child is taken on board a Royal Caribbean International vessel without the knowledge and consent of their custodial parent/legal guardian. This is to help ensure that you have a happy and healthy cruise holiday experience with Royal Caribbean International.
Any minor (under the age of 21) will only be permitted to board the ship if accompanied by at least one person over the age of 21. (Excludes married couples over the age of 16 â€“ original evidence required)
If the accompanying adult is not the parent or legal guardian of the minor travelling with them, they will need to present the minorâ€™s valid passport, all applicable visas and an original legally affirmed or notarised letter signed by a least one of the minorâ€™s parents or legal guardians. (A legal letter is not required for minors aged 18 -20).
The letter must authorise the travelling adult to take the minor/s on the specified cruise and must authorise the travelling adult to supervise the child, sign applicable sports waivers and permit any medical treatment that must be administered to the child which in the opinion of the treating doctor needs to be carried out without delay.
The letter must be legally affirmed or notarised by a practising solicitor, notary or commissioner for oaths.
If such evidence is not produced, the minor(s) concerned will not be permitted to board the ship or undertake the cruise.
Additionally, when a child does not share the same surname as their custodial parent/legal guardian, Royal Caribbean International requires that the custodial parent/legal guardian produce legal documented evidence that the child is in their primary care; this includes, but is not limited to: birth, marriage, divorce, adoption certificates as appropriate.
