Visa and BTinternet email address problem (Aug.2019)

I'm currently in England. I tried to obtain evisa (via www.evisa.gov.tr) for myself and Galaxy Boy in advance a forthcoming visit to Turkey.

We have @btinternet.com email addresses (more than one!) but having inputted all the information from our passports, we could not receive the email required to finalise the evisa process using any of our addresses.

We used five different desk computers (both PCs and Macs) at home, at the office and at the home of a friend, and used four different @btinternet.com email addresses. All but two of the computers we used had the most up-to-date software and version of Google Chrome etc. but none were able to get beyond the first stage of the evisa system, so I came to the conclusion that the Turkish evisa system does not 'talk' to BTInternet.

I enlisted the help of a friend who uses an @ntlworld email address and had one last attempt to obtain visas and bingo! it worked. (our passport numbers and every scrap of information therein is now imprinted in my brain, having had to enter it on the website so many times!)

We now have our visas, but this is a warning to others trying to obtain visas using @BTInternet.com email addresses.

BT Internet addresses do not work with Turkish evisa applications nor Residence Permit online applications..

You need to use another email address.

Does anyone have any idea why @BTinternet email addresses don't work? I assume is just another of those irritating Turkish things designed to frustrate the hell out of us!

Another Turkey basher?....that type of comment really winds me up!!..
If every other known e-mail address is accepted & are compatible ,do you not think it could be BT's settings that might not be compatible with the Turkish systems.?

As my computer usually flashes up a warning message when I use, or try to use, a website that is incompatible (which in the case of the visa application it didn't), I hadn't even considered that it could be BT's settings that could be the problem, so fair comment Redders. I was so frustrated at having spent many hours over several days trying to obtain visas.

Apologies if I caused offence. I am not a Turkey basher. I am sure there are many other members of the forum who are frustrated at the additional hoops we have to jump through to deal with the legalities of residing (even part time) in another part of the world, but that's life, be it in Turkey or any other country.

Probably for the same reasons as Ahval.

Wikipedia is blocked. As I understand it some of the content is at odds with the view of the Turkish government. The organization refused to modify or take it down. In my opinion it is to the disadvantage of the many students in the country.

Next time try using @btopenworld.com

The @btinternet.com and @btopenworld.com email domains are interchangeable and you should receive emails to the same inbox if someone sends the email to either you @btinternet.com or @btopenworld.com.
