In the meantime, what is the process to obtain a 1-2 year Visa like?

What do you need?
Do you have to be 18 to start the process?
How long does it take to obtain a Visa?
How much does it cost?

What is the whole process like?I want to get into Turkey as soon as possible, so I really hope obtaining a Visa doesn't…
