As an innovative project officially launched in July 2013, the Diplomatic Portal of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) is a gateway to easily accessible information and certain online facilities at the service of diplomatic missions, consular posts and international organizations in Turkey.

It aims to be an important information channel from the MFA to the Diplomatic Missions, increase interaction among the Diplomatic Corps and serve as a platform for connecting diplomats living in Ankara. In this newly updated version of the Diplomatic Portal 2015, you will also find information about the latest news from the Ministry, diplomatic news from the Embassies and International Organizations, such as seminars, workshops, film festivals, sport tournaments or concerts that are of relevance to the Diplomatic Corps in Ankara as well as National Days and Presentation of Credentials.

The Diplomatic Portal website https://diplomatic.mfa.gov.tr contains the following sections:
