  1. Thanks for the response Ken, We are going in to talk to the folks at immigration to find out exactly what the problem was. Take care.
  2. Thanks for the reply. We did not miss our appointment. We had hired a lawyer to help us take care of the short term rp. The lawyer mixed up the dates of arrival. We told him we arrived on the 13th, of August but he filed as if we came in on the 31st. It is a long story but basically he filed the paperwork too late, (it would have been fine if we had in fact entered on the 31st instead of 20 days earlier) The appointment we received was for the 3rd of January. It was there that the problem with the dates came up. We knew that if we were allowed to stay in the country until the date of the appointment so were not worried when we got the appointment on Jan 3rd and never knew that the whole time the lawyer had flipped our dates around. We subsequently found out that the wrong dates that was the problem at the appointment. Anyhow we have called the number 157 and were instructed to head to the immigration office first and that we we will have to leave the country.
  3. Hi, I have a question about short term residency for a family. We arrived in Turkey on August, 13 2018. We hired a lawyer to help us with obtaining the residency. We had an appointment on Jan,3 but when we went for the appointment we found out that the lawyer had filled in the wrong date of arrival on the form ( he filled in our date of arrival as august 31st). I dont speak turkish so I dont know if we were denied or if we just needed to fix that error. My question is 1) As we have already overstayed the 90 days of our 180 day tourist visa do we have to leave the country or can we just reapply ( our 180 day visa is up on Feb,13th) 2) If we leave the country can I just go to Bulgaria and turn around. and if I do leave will I have to pay fines and do I have to get a new tourist visa. My husband already has a Turkish ID number. Thanks for any help.
