Varat Eyalet (also known as Pashaluk of Varat or Province of Varat;[1] Ottoman Turkish: ?; Ey?let-i V?rad‎)[2] was an administrative territorial entity of the Ottoman Empire formed in 1660. Varat Eyalet bordered Ottoman Budin Eyalet in the west, Teme?var Eyalet in the southwest, Egir Eyalet in the northwest, vassal Ottoman Principality of Transylvania in the southeast, and Habsburg Royal Hungary in the north.


Varat[3] (Oradea) was made the seat of an Ottoman governor (beylerbeyi) in 1660.[4] Before the formation of the Eyalet, its area was mostly part of the vassal Ottoman Principality of Transylvania. Some territories that formerly belonged to Teme?var Eyalet and Egir Eyalet were also included into Varat Eyalet.

In June 1692 the eyalet was conquered by the Habsburgs,[4] and was ceded to Austria by Treaty of Carlowitz in 1699. Its territory was subsequently included into Habsburg Kingdom of Hungary and Habsburg Principality of Transylvania.
