As the name suggests, this visa is called a border gate visa that can be obtained at the borders of foreign countries. According to the agreements among the countries, citizens traveling abroad can apply for a visa at the borders of that country for touristic purposes, however, they will be limited to a certain period.  There are some procedures for Turkish citizens holding regular passports to be able to apply for visas at the borders.
