Reuters: U.S., Turkey restart issuing visas but tensions over detentions fester

ANKARA (Reuters) - The United States partially resumed issuing visas in Turkey on Monday after getting what it said were assurances about the safety of staff at its missions following a number of detentions.

The Turkish embassy in Washington said almost immediately it would match the move, although it denied there had been any assurances.

Great news, as my stopover in Istanbul is scheduled for Nov. 27th!

I'm curious as to what "partially resumed" means, but hopefully this works it way back to normal in the next couple weeks.

LBGT travellers however beware as President Erdogan took a strong stance and proclaimed them to violate against Turkish and AKP party values just a few days ago.
