Turkish VISA website

UPDATE:
Our issue was resolved and we were able to obtain our Turkish VISAs. Not sure, but it may have been an issue with the Turkish website (perhaps a system update) or our computer settings (we tried using both Microsoft and Apple computers), but we were eventually able to enter our information and then have it accepted by their website. When we tried to make our payment, the payment was rejected on several of our credit cards, but was finally accepted on an old credit card. The Turkish government indicates that for all payments you must make sure that the card ... has 3D Secure System, and is
open to international transactions. Apparently most major bank credit cards no longer support the 3D system, but we found a card that worked. Thanks to all who provided suggestions!!

We are having trouble ordering a Turkish VISA through the Turkish Embassy website (we've tried www.evisa.gov.tr and www.evisa.gov.tr/en/). We tried accessing the Turkish Embassy websites using both Apple Safari and Google Chrome and both say the network is not secure. Sometimes we get kicked off the website before entering any information and other times we get kicked off the website after we have filled out some information, but before we finish completing the application process.

Any suggestions?

I ordered (and received) my Turkish VISA a day or two ago with no problems using Microsoft Edge. It also loaded for me now just fine in Firefox and Microsoft Edge, without any security notifications. I haven't tried Safari or Chrome.

I tried the website on my phone using Google Chrome and was successful, with no "network is not secure" type messages.

I wonder if it could be an issue with your antivirus, VPN or firewall?

I got a visa from www.evisa.gov.tr using Safari with no problem last fall. Maybe they are having some kind of temporary problem.

Don't know whether this is an issue for you, but I recall trying to get two visas with the same email address a number of years ago. That was a total no-go, and it was not at all obvious that the email addresses were the problem until I called their customer support. Each visa needs a separate email address.

Another idea to check along the lines of email addresses, I've had lots of problems with some of my US email addresses not working on international websites (hotels, restaurants, etc.) whose spam filters or field formats don't recognize them as valid email addresses. I created, and now exclusively use, a gmail address for international forms and have had far fewer (though not zero) problems.
