The Union of Travel Agencies of Turkey (TURSAB) has significantly increased the entrance fees for museums and historical and cultural sites. Entry tickets for places of interest to Christians and especially Armenians have been raised significantly.

For example, the entrance fee for the Akhtamar Island of Western Armenia has increased from 10 to 25 liras, the entrance fee for the ruins of Ani to 15 liras and for St. Sophia Church of Costantinople from 72 liras to 100.
