Upon arriving at Esenbo Airport in Ankara, Turkey, you will disembark and enter the international terminal to process through customs and immigration. Have your identification card and North Atlantic Treaty Organization travel orders or diplomatic passport along with your visa, and your family's passports ready. The immigration officer will stamp your NATO travel orders or passport. Do not lose this stamped document, as you will need it when you depart the country. Failure to provide the stamped entry document to immigration when you depart could result in the levying of a substantial fine upon departure.
After immigration, you will enter the baggage claim area. Do not leave this area until all your baggage has been claimed. Turkish porters can help with the bags and the cost of their service is predominantly displayed in English in the baggage area (typically $1, expressed in Turkish lira). After you collect your baggage, you will go through a customs checkpoint. The Turkish National Police stationed at this checkpoint may randomly check your baggage.
Assuming you provided your sponsor with the details of your travel itinerary, they will meet you immediately outside the terminal and transport you into the city to your hotel. If your sponsor is not there to greet you, contact the Office of Defense Cooperation Turkey staff duty officer for assistance at 011-0532-627-1423 or the 717ABS officer/first shirt 011-0533-375-7846.
