The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkey is responsible for issuing visas to people who want to visit, work, study or live in Turkey. It is responsible for the management of lawful and orderly entry and stay of people in Turkey, including through effective border security. It provides information and application forms for migration to Turkey, and information about settling in Turkey, Turkish citizenship, and multicultural affairs.
The Turkish Gendarmerie (Jandarma) as a branch of Turkish Armed Forces manages the security and integrity of Turkey's borders. It works closely with other government and international agencies, in particular the Ministry of Customs and Trade, to detect and deter unlawful movement of goods and people across the border.
The Ministry of Agriculture manages quarantine controls at Turkish borders to minimise the risk of exotic diseases entering the country.
