Traveling from one country to another can often be difficult and time-consuming. As a recent citizen of a country you are moving to, it is even more so for those who are visiting or moving to the Bahamas or Barbados on business. You might find that the process of obtaining a travel visa is difficult and tedious, especially if you don’t speak the language. Fortunately, Turkey has partnered with TurkeyVisa to make this process much easier.
What is a Turkey Visa?
If you are a citizen of Barbados and you want to visit Turkey, then you will need to obtain a visa. The process is quite simple and can be done in just a few steps. Turkey Visa for Bahamas Citizens
The first step is to contact the Turkish Embassy or Consulate in Barbados. You will need to provide your full name as well as your passport number and date of birth. Once this information has been confirmed, the embassy or consulate will issue you with a visa application form.
The next step is to fill out the form completely and submit it to the embassy or consulate. Make sure that all of the required information is included and that the application is properly completed. If everything looks good, then you will be given an appointment for your visa interview.
At the interview, you will need to provide further proof of your identity and residency in Barbados. This may include something like a driver’s license or voter’s card. After verifying all of the information, the embassy or consulate will issue you with a visa number which must be included on all travel documents.
Finally, remember to bring your passport valid for at least six months after your planned date of departure from Turkey as well as any required visas for other countries in your itinerary.

2018 United States Midterm Elections
The United States is holding midterm elections on November 6th. If you are a citizen of Turkey, and you want to visit the United States, you will need a visa. The process for obtaining a Turkish visa can be complicated and time-consuming, so it is important to plan ahead.
To obtain a Turkish visa, you will first need to submit an application through the Embassy or Consulate of Turkey in your country of residence. You will need to provide information about your travel plans and provide documentation that proves your identity and citizenship. You must also pay a processing fee.
Once you have submitted your application, the embassy or consulate will review it and notify you if your visa has been approved or denied. If your visa has been approved, they will send you an approval letter which you must carry with you when travelling to the United States.
If your visa has been denied, the embassy or consulate may be able to help you get a different type of visa or find another way to visit the United States. However, if your Turkish visa has been denied for reasons that are not within their control (for example, if your passport is invalid), they may not be able to help you.

The Barbados Citizenship by Investment Program offers citizenship to foreign nationals who make an investment of at least $200,000 in the country. Each program has specific requirements that must be met before residency can be granted, including a minimum residence period of five years. Both programs also require applicants to meet certain educational and financial qualifications.
