Apologies if these questions have appeared elsewhere: I searched and didn't see anything come up. I'm interested in going to Turkey to study the language, and I've seen reference to a specific visa type for that. I would appreciate if anyone could help me with the following questions:
Is the visa to study Turkish considered a "Short Term" visa or "Student" visa?
Does this change whether I have to apply online/at a consulate or in person/online?
How long is the typical length of this visa, given that the courses will be booked monthly?
I have seen that it can only be renewed once.
Does anyone have any experience with this visa (good or bad)?
Is the process of getting a residence permit on this visa any different?
Is it possible to leave the country and return on a tourist visa if this is close to expiring?
Thanks for any input you all may be able to offer!
