  1. Hello ken. Thanks for that information. Https://www.expatguideturkey.com/the-consequences-of-overstaying-in-turkey/ I found the link to ... Its a long page .. screen shot of the man who wrote this info. I am going to follow your advice tho. I have read so many pages and that is how I found this page. I have not read about a perm ban anywhere else and naturally I was scared to death. Thanks for the help. I may respond to the other man and tell him he needs to not write such things as it seems to be wrong info. maybe he needs to clarify with more info as to why a person could get a perm ban. I hope my ban is not 5 years. No matter how long it is it will be toooooo long as I love Turkey and really want to stay here. I hope that I can pay it off when I get back to the US and come back hopefully within a years time. I will keep this upsated to let anyone know what happens leaving and how to go about paying a fine and lifting a ban once back in America. thanks Bel1.docx
  2. Hi I am looking for a bit of help. So I came to Turkey in 2012. I got my first rp and then my second one with no problems. on my 3rd rp I got caught in the new system and had a 2 day overstay. the police at the station told me to just go to Bulgaria for 24 hours and then come back and do the new apointment within 10 days. so off I went. I had a fine of 400 lira for just 2 days. I have heard that it depends on the mood of the people for the amount. there was a kid in front of me who had stayed 2 months and got the same amount. maybe the difference was that I wanted to come back and he was just leaving for good.. idk. so I got back and got the new permit. then i started to work at a school that said they got the permit for me. well i never really checked on it as i was really liked at the school and everything was fine. I resigned with the school and again they said they will handle the permits. I was happy to not have to deal with it. Now I need to leave in may because my daughter will graduate university back in america and I went to ask for the permits and all papers as they knew at the start of the year that I would go in May and return about 10 days later. They told me that they never got the permit because I never gave them my rp. Come to learn they also did not do it last year. SO at this point I am overstayed by 19 months. I know there will be a huge fine which I dont think I can pay so I have decided to go home and work for a year or so. I read here that bans can be up to five years. I also read that someone can apply to the Turkish Foreign Department back in the US and ay the fine and have the ban lifted. So I had decided to do that. But last evening I read that if someone has overstayed 2 times that they will be banned forever. Is this true? I need someone who knows this for sure and not a guess. Can anyone hel me on this ? Or tell me what I need to do in order to be able to come back to Turkey after about one year? Thanks in advance
