Shortly after the USA announcement, Ankara's embassy in Washington announced that Turkish missions in the United States will also resume full visa services for U.S. citizens matching the American move.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had earlier called the US move to suspend non-immigrant visa operations at diplomatic facilities in Turkey "upsetting". The embassy stressed, however, that the Turkish government has given no assurances to Washington, refuting the US embassy's earlier claim.
