  1. Hello my case is like this : i entered turkey on 28 Aug 2017 with my Jordanian passport on a 90 Days visa. I applied for an appointment for the residency permit , got it on 29 Nov 2017 i went to the appointment and they requested extra papers from Jordan like bank account balance and a clean criminal record ( that will take 2 months to be issued from the embassy ) the criminal clean record issuance date is 5 Dec 2017 and had all the legal government stamps from Jordan and translated to English. i got the papers today 3 Feb 2018 but I was told that I have only 30 days to get the requested papers and get back to the appointment again but it took 60 days am I considered as an overstayed person ? And what will be the procedure when I get back to the residency office and show them the papers and tell them that it took two months to be issued . Thanks in advance
  2. Hello friends, As you all are probably aware, there was/is a diplomatic row between Turkey and the US in which visa services were suspended. I received word that visa services have resumed, but I am wondering about Americans getting tourist visas. I am hoping to marry in Turkey soon and my parents want to visit. Does any one know how to contact the embassy, I tried calling but they directed me to their website. Thanks as always, and sorry if this question has been answered elsewhere. Best wishes, Thomas

    Visa Help

    Hi First post here. I'm planning on coming back to Turkey next month (September) but my visa runs out on 30th September! Am I correct in thinking that I can leave Turkey on 30th the day it runs out? Also I will hopefully be coming back sometime in April next year and also looking to come back for 3-4 months in the summer. A new visa for April should be no problem but if I come back in the summer this will take me over the 90 days allowed in 180. What would my options be? Am I correct in thinking that to apply for another tourist visa I would have to leave the country for a day and come back? Or would an option be to apply for a short term residents visa while there in summer? Sorry I find the whole visa and residents thing confusing
  6. Hi Guys, Me and my husband are INDIAN PASSPORT HOLDERS RESIDING IN DOHA, QATAR. We plan to vacation in turkey in September 2017 and have got the VALID TOURIST VISA -SINGLE ENTRY for the duration of - 10.08.2017 - 10.11.2017. Stating the DURATION OF STAY - 10 Now while confirming our flight bookings we decided to extend our trip by 2days and have already made the reservations and bookings. I want to avoid rescheduling the flights and reservations as I will end up paying a lot in cancellations. I want to clarify - 1) Will I be penalised for over staying for 2 days? 2) If yes? Then what would it be? 3) Is it possible to make the change on the printed visa? 4) If in case I decide to travel without making any changes to my planned itenary or visa would I be fined? And how much would that be? PLEASE HELP AND GUIDE AS TO THE BEST WAY TO GO ABOUT THIS ISSUE. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE. 5)
  7. This is a little bit of a crazy happening. I arrived in Turkey 4 years ago. I had a job at a school in istanbul and they did not offer a work visa. That was fine with me. I thought I would only stay one year. then after two years I moved to İzmir. my visa was to be renewed but ı did not have the funds to do it, so I let it lapse. My thought was that I would save the cash and leave for some time and then come back after a year or so. now the visa is over by two years and I am working as a private teacher and money is low. as in so low that some days I cant afford to eat. I had a friend that moved to izmir and we took a flat together. Now that the school year has ended , he left without paying me back for the 3 months rent I paid and he also didnt pay for the June rent. the landlord was sympathetic to the situation but now it is July and I still owe for June and now July. so here are my questions. 1. about the rent... is there a way that I can legally extend my time to pay? I mean should I have a friend explain in Turkish to them that I have lost most of my students due to the summer and ask them to let me pay like as much as I can each week? what are your thoughts on that working? they are very nice ppl... 2. seeing as how I have no family back in the states ( raised in foster homes and set out on my own a few years back) I have no one to ask for money help to get out of here... so could I like go to the embasy and tell them that I have overstayed and they send me back to the US? will they allow me to take my things with me? will I be arrested? could I ever come back to Turkey if I do this? thanks in advance for the help even though it is bad all around and I am at a loss every day on what to do

  9. Turkey has an online system for issuing tourist visas. It makes getting one as easy as booking a flight or a hotel online. Not only is the system convenient, but as you go through the application process, the system will tell you how much your visa will cost. If you have to go to a local Turkish consulate to get a visa, the system will tell you that, too. Passport Requirements See "Passport Validity Requirements" Turkey's E-Visa Process 1. Apply Go to www.evisa.com.tr. Click "New Application" at the bottom of the page. Enter your nationality and type of passport, and the anti-spam verification code. Click "Save and Continue." According to what nationality you entered, the next page will tell you if you need a visa or not, or a passport or not. It will also tell you the visa fee. On the same page, enter your date of arrival. The system will calculate and display the dates and duration of your visa's validity, and the number of days you can stay in Turkey during that period (for most tourists, the visa will be valid for 180 days, and you will be able to stay in Turkey for a total of 90 days during that 180 day period). Your visa's validity period will begin on the projected date of arrival you enter into the system. Click "Save and Continue." On the next page, enter your personal and passport information. Make sure this matches your passport exactly, since the immigration official will check your visa against your passport. Verify that the information you entered is accurate, then submit it. Your passport must have at least 180 days of validity beyond the end of the duration of time you want to say in Turkey. The next page will tell you that your information was submitted successfully, and that an e-mail has been sent to the e-mail address you entered, with a link to the e-visa payment system. 2. Make Payment On the e-mail the system sends you, click the link to go back to the e-visa system and pay. The system accepts both Visa and Mastercard (more cards and payment options are also available). The cost of a tourist visa is usually the equivalent of around 20 US dollars, but it can vary by country--they system will calculate that for you. 3. Download Once you've paid, the system will send you another e-mail with a link to download your e-visa. Click on that link, download the e-visa, print it, and present that to the immigration official when you enter Turkey. Keep the printed copy of your e-visa with you at all times while you are in Turkey. You should also save a copy of it on your laptop or other personal computing device. Turkey E-visa Video This YouTube video also walks you through the process. Staying Beyond the Expiration of Your Visa If you want to stay in Turkey longer than your visa allows, you cannot extend it. You must apply for a residence permit. Foreigners who live in Turkey usually have "short-term" residence permits which are renewed every year, but you can also get a short-term residence permit for three, six, or nine months in duration. Family Visa Applications You can get visas for yourself and up to 10 of your family members, which will be traveling with you, at the same time. You can do this as long as all family members: are from the same country, have the same type of travel document (i.e. ordinary, diplomatic, or official passport, and have the same arrival date.* *This doesn't mean that all family members have to enter Turkey on the same day, but the "arrival date" you enter into the e-visa system will begin the visas' validity period (normally 180 days), which has to be the same for everybody on any group application. Family members can actually enter Turkey on any date within the validity period. On the first page of the e-visa system, after you enter the country and type of travel document for all travelers, and click "Continue," you will be sent to the second page, where you will enter your personal information. Then click "Add a New Person" to enter the information for the other family members. Once everyone's information is entered, click "Continue." The e-visa system will total the visa fees into a single payment amount, and send you a confirmation e-mail, and provide you with a link you can use to download your family's visas. E-Visa Scams Since Turkey's e-visa system came online, several websites have been created to make people think that they are at the official Turkey e-visa website. They may get you your e-visa, but they will also charge you extra for it. To get a Turkey e-visa, always go to www.e-visa.gov.tr.
  10. hi! I overstayed in Turkey my 90 days out of 180-days period. I did pay the fine before flying away from Turkey and nobody mentioned anything about a ban. Well...if I understood it right: from the day I left Turkey I cannot re-enter before 90 days has passed? Is it right? I called Turkish embassy and they told me , if I want to turn back Turkey before that, I have to apply visa. I did,the stickervisa. I've been waiting 4 weeks and heard nothing from the embassy. They said it takes normally 2 weeks, but can take 8!!! They are not answering what's the stautus of the visa now... Ok, the question is: If I now leave Finland (I am Finnish citizen) for travel more than 4 weeks, and visa arrives while I'm out of the country (and I won't be even needing it anymore,because of the dates I've been asking it)...will the visa be valid anyway???? I understood I have to go get it when they call me from Turkish embassy. And if I don't? Do they register it as a valid visa for the period i've been requiring it? Thanks in advance
  11. 1. Turkish citizens should not pay anything for visa. 2. Borders within the EU and borders between the EU and Turkey do not exist anymore since refugees easily leaking from here. 3. You don't really secure your country when you ask for visa. There are already millions of people entered Europe who can be potential threat to European Civilization. 4. Europe should not discriminate Turkish citizens anymore while thousands and millions of refugees and migrants entering into Europe without a need of visa and even passport. Letting thousands of illegals without a visa and passport and asking Turkish citizens for visa does not really improve Europe's border security.
  12. Hi, I'm a Malaysian. I came to Turkey in 28th July and left on 28th December this year. I don't need a visa to enter Turkey but I did overstay by two months because of residency application issue. I'm engaged to a Syrian in Turkey, we live in Gaziantep. I applied for a short term residency in Gaziantep in August but got an appointment on 16th December, my fiance ensured me it's okay to overstay while waiting for the ikamet appointment. On the day of the appointment, the Goc Idaresi employee told me that he couldn't accept my papers ( I've prepared all the necessary) because he is going to reject my application, and that will be a trouble for my future application unless we can get married within 10 days then he can help (my fiance has a work permit in Turkey, but I am not sure we can get married in Turkey), The reason he gave was the short-term residency in cities near the borders of Syria such as Gaziantep, Antakya, Sanliurfa and etc will only be granted to Syrians. He advised me to leave the country and pay the fine at the airport and they will not issue any entry ban and I shall able to enter the country and apply for the ikamet within 10 days in other cities that are not close to the Syrian borders. I double confirmed with the officer at the visa violation office and he said no ban will issue. But I have reservation about his answer. So my questions are as below: (1) How can I find out for sure that I'm not banned for a certain period to enter Turkey? (2) Can a Malaysian and a Syrian get married in Turkey? (3) How to resolve the ikamet issue? Any answers or suggestions are greatly appreciated as I'm waiting anxiously in Malaysia, counting the days I can get back to my fiance. Many thanks in advanced.
  13. hi to all, I have one question. I got my residence permit after 3 days. That's great. I will be staying in Istanbul for one year, but during this time I am going to spend more then 120 days outside Turkey. How they count how many days I was outside Turkey? If they count, what will happen when I reach f. E. 130th day, and I am coming back to Istanbul? Will they not allow me to go inside? What are your experience and suggestions for the case like this? TIA
  14. This may seem strange to some but here goes... I have been in Turkey for four years now. I have had to go to the hospital 3 times. Once was before the law of needing insurance was in play and twice after the law came. Now I admit that sadly I do not have insurance and my visa is expired. I plan to stay a bit longer and pay the fines and take the ban when I go. I have my reasons for doing this.. however... I wonder.... if I go to the hospital for treatment of what I think is a worthy cause to go without insurance willing to pay cash for the treatment, but the visa is expired... can the police be notified? I mean, when you go to the ER do they somehow share that info with the police ? I know that if you check into a hotel the police can see that you are there .. is it the same with the ER department? Otherwise I will need to find a private doctor and pay cash there as I am sure they will not ask too many questions. But I think I have an issue that needs to be addressed pretty soon and I really need some answers if you all can help. thanks
  15. Hi my fiancée and I have been together for 4 years. He's turkish and I'm British and he's coming 21 years of age. He has delayed the army for a few years due to his mums health and is due to go in, in 2017. We're quite happy to do this however, several of his family members have said if I got a lawyer on the English side he will have a chance to come into the country before he does his army service and we would be able to buy out of it after 3 years... Does anyone know the possibility or risks of this? Before we pay out for help and end up with nothing. This would be so much better for us if possible as my father is ill and it would be a chance to get to know each other before he passes and also be able to start a family. If not we will continue on with our original plan.
  16. Hello everyone i need some advice. I am Pakistani citizen and working here full time as an Accountant. I have some traveling history like i have traveled 2 times Dubai on visit visa and 1 time Thailand. Recently i have applied for student visa for UK and unfortunately it was refused and the reason was visa officer not satisfy in interview. Now i want to meet my brother who is living in Istanbul and he citizen of Turkey. He has own shop and paying all government taxes. He send me an invitation letter to visit Turkey and see the beautiful country. I just want to visit Turkey for 30 days. So can anyone tell me what is the chances of visa for me and how much funds required in account for visit visa?
  17. I apologize if it has already been posted, but I am currently looking at the possibility of teaching English in Istanbul. I don't have any credentials but an overwhelmingly passionate drive to teach. Can anyone give me any suggestions about the TEFL course/gaining work permits/Visa's? Also I have many native Turkish friends that live in Istanbul. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Note I do understand it may take some time to gain certain credentials and Im not expecting to get answers that will tell me I can just pick up and go with a certificate or two, so please be truthful. Haha.
  18. How does one go about getting a English teaching job in Turkey? I've heard the best thing to do is just to fly to Istanbul and begin looking, but wouldn't working on a tourist/residency visa mean your open to exploitation by your employer? Is it even possible to get a work visa after this point? Thanks
  19. Hi everyone, I came to Turkey with a 90 day visa. My plan is to get the new RP before the visa expires, but first i will go to my homecountry for a month. I am thinking that I will return when I have approx 30 or 15 days left on my visa and then apply for an RP from Turkey. Is that possible, or should I start applying now for an RP? anyone knows when we have to fix RP from our homecountries?
  20. Good day! Pardon me if the question was given in the past. I have been scouring the net trying to look for a page which could enlighten me of detailed information and some led me here. I am a Filipina and planning to move to Turkey for good. Anyways, my Turkish boyfriend and I are in a long-distance-relationship for almost a year now. He asked me to visit Turkey in a tourist visa so we could get married in his country. I am honestly so puzzled of the idea. Is there no way that I can get a fiancee visa instead? Applying for a tourist requires big money and more effort. In addition, Turkish embassy in the Philippines is very strict in requirements compliance. Don't get me wrong, we both have stable jobs and even if he gave me guarantees, I am still not confident of it. I already checked the e-visa, unfortunately, not applicable in my country. I would like to get more alternative before going to the embassy. Please help me out :-(
  21. Hi ..I am Malaysian citizen eligible for 90 days visa on arrival . If I wish to stay more than 90 days can I just travel to a neighboring country and reenter turkey after 2 days so that I again get a visa on arrival for 90 days .
  22. Hello everyone, I am a newbie here, from Mexico, and I need your assistance as this whole e-visa thing is giving me a headache. Turkey grants me a 30 day within 180 days (yeah, its draconian) single entry visa. Now, I want to stay in the country for 90 days or so (longer if possible, but I am happy with 90 days) and the reason for my visit is tourism. I would like a multi-entry visa as well, as I want to pop into Georgia. In my mind, I should get a 90 day multi-entry visa, no? Right. I went to the consulate in Sofia and they flat out told me I couldn't apply for a visa there. Before going, I researched on the MFA website and it states, verbatim: Mexico: Diplomatic passport holders are exempted from visa for their travels up to 90 days. Ordinary and service/official passport holders are required to have visa to enter Turkey. Holders of such passports may get their 90-day multiple-entry visas from Turkish missions abroad. So, I went back to my apartment and called the Turkish embassy in Mexico City and they told me I should have no problems applying for the visa here in Bulgaria. A week later, I came back to the consulate in Sofia with the MFA website loaded on my phone, some documents and the advice of the Turkish embassy in Mexico. I spoke to them and explained that I had called the embassy in Mexico and that the MFA said this and that on the website (all of this I did super calm, super nice and just when I had a cue to give more info, not shoving it in their faces or anything), that the embassy in Mexico said it shouldn't be a problem, etc. After about 10-15 minutes another guy came out and said that no, they cannot process it and I have to apply in person in my home country. I left super sad and mostly, frustrated. Now, here are my questions. 1. I have been travelling for about 3 years. I have a valid USA visa and tons of stamps from there. I know the turks like to see this kind of stuff. What I am thinking is getting the 30 day e-visa and then try to extend it in Turkey. Anyone know if this is possible? I have researched a bit and I get conflicting information. Bear (bare?) in mind I do not want a residence permit, I just want to stay as a tourist for 90 days. Any info on this would be amazing. 2. If I get this 30 day single entry tourist visa and I only use, say, 2 weeks. Can I apply for another single entry e-visa and be able to come back for the other 2 weeks? Or, if I get out after 2 weeks and then apply for a visa a at the border for another 2 weeks, will I be granted entry? This whole 30-days-within-180-days is insane Thank you so much for your help!!!
  23. Merhaba! :0) Sorry to be annoying, sure your fed up with visa posts...:0( I want to invite kocam to UK for Xmas with me, just for 2 weeks and we are going to apply for a two week visa. He has no interest in living here and I will be moving there next year. Anyway, he has a letter from his employer, 3-6 months payslips and bank statements, his id card updated to married. I'm confused about what to say and provide for the invitation to UK letter as all my research says different things. So if anyone can help I would be so so thankful. (I work night shifts so not the sharpest knife in the drawer so to speak haha) x
  24. My husband is from Istanbul and is still living there while I am in Glasgow. We applied for a VAF4A Settlement Visa in August so he could come to Scotland to live with me. We were told on Monday 15th October that his visa has been denied because we didn’t include a letter from my employers confirming my employment. The authorities therefore were not satisfied that I earned the 18,600GBP needed to fulfil the financial requirement. We did, however, submit all my payslips and bank statements for the last year which demonstrated a regular income from the same source, as well as my last two P60s. All of these documents prove that my earnings are in excess of the required 18,600GBP. Furthermore, we gave them full contact details of my employer had further information been required. We are devastated and aren't sure what we should do next - should we appeal the decision (which I have been told could take up to a year) or should we re-apply for another settlement visa? Any advice at all will be gladly received Many thanks, Kx
  25. Hi everyone my fiancé has just applied for a holiday visa. My parents have sponsored him and given him the invitation letter to stay with them. He hasn't mentioned me he just said he met my parents when they were on holiday and that they invited him here for a 2 week holiday. His boss from the hotel has given him a letter saying he can have 2 weeks off work but that he has to return 2 weeks later to commence work again. However the hotel isn't actually open in winter like he said it is but it is having a major refurb done on it while its closed ready for reopening in April. The hotel is in Kusadasi. When he gets to England obviously he will have to show this letter, but does he actually have to return on that date stated or could he stay here for 4 months. He has booked his flight for 20th November. I want him here longer than 2 weeks. We get married in April and just want to be together for the winter period. Could his boss do him a new letter saying that prior to the first letter being written they have just been informed of the refurb and that Yilmaz isn't needed at the hotel as it will be closed? Bit confusing I know but any help that anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.
