Turkey visa application office to open in Iraq’s Kirkuk

Preparations to open a Turkish visa application office in Kirkuk, a predominantly Turkmen city in northern Iraq, have been finalized, an official said Wednesday.

Peyami Yılmaz, who has been tasked with running the office, told Anadolu Agency that the office would soon be opened in a formal inauguration ceremony.

The ceremony, he added, would likely be attended by Fatih Yılmaz, Turkey's ambassador to Iraq, and local officials from Kirkuk.

"We expect to process between 200 and 400 visa applications per day," Yılmaz said, going on to assert that the application process would only take "a couple of minutes".
