  1. I made an account just to ask a really important question. I am a swedish citizen in Turkey right now and I´ve been here for almost a month. According to the 90/180 days rule I can stay a maximum up to 90 days in any half year period. But if I get a visa the next time I come back to Turkey, would I then be exempt from this rule?
  2. I am posting this as a question regarding the helpful information in Ken Grubb's article from 2016 about the 180-day/90-day rule. I used to think that a new 180-day period could begin the day after the previous 180-day period ended. I did not realize this period could "move." I thought someone (even a confused police officer) had told me that once you had used all your 90 days, you had to wait 90 days before you could re-enter Turkey with a new tourist visa. Is this true? Suppose someone had used all 90 days and would like to come back to Turkey 2 months after the previous exit. In t
  3. What is a visa? Do I need a visa to come to Turkey? What is an e-visa? Where to I need to go to get an E-visa? What should I do with My E-visa after I get it? What documents do I need to apply for an e-Visa? Where can I get travel insurance to visit Turkey? Who is eligible for an e-Visa? The e-visa system says I have to get my visa from a Turkish embassy or consulate. How can I get an appointment? Do I need to enter Turkey on the exact date I put in my application? If my travel plans change, can I change the date of my e-visa? Is the inf
  4. Sorry, I am still very new to the site and finding my way around. I hope this is the correct forum to post this. I was reading: and it says "Let's say it's October 1st. You want to know how much time you have on your visa. Count back 180 days from October 1st (you can use the date calculator under "External Links". You will see the date 180 days previously was July 3rd." But counting back 180 days from October 1st is not July 3rd. It is April 4th. (July 3rd to October 1st is only 90 days, not 180 days.) More importantly, I was trying to determine when I can return to Turk
  5. Overstaying Your Visa Many foreigners have over-stayed a visa, or residence permit, without realizing it. The Turkish government deals with overstays with either a fine and/or a ban from re-entering Turkey. These vary according to the length of the overstay. If you've overstayed for less than ten days, you will be fined when you go to the border gate to leave, but you won't receive re-entry ban. If you have overstayed for more than ten days, you'll be banned from re-entering Turkey for a specified time. Fines Immigration officials at the ports of entry/exit have a chart which dict
  6. Even if you don’t intend to apply for a visa just yet, you can still use the online e-visa system to learn the visa requirements for citizens your country. By just filling out the first pages, the system will tell you if you are eligible for an e-visa, or if you need to go to your local Turkish embassy or consulate to apply for one. Here's what you need to do: 1. Go to www.evisa.gov.tr. 2. Click "Application." 3. Enter the country you are from, and the type of passport you have, and enter the verification code, Click "Save and Continue." The next page which appears will offer

    Turkey Visas

    To enter Turkey, you must have a visa, unless your country has a bilateral agreement with Turkey which exempts you from needing a visa. If you want to apply for a work visa, see Applying for a Work Permit from Outside of Turkey, which also covers the work visa process. The Difference Between a Visa and a Residence Permit Visa A visa is permission to enter Turkey and stay here for a short time, with the expectation that you will leave Turkey when the visa expires. Visas cannot be extended. If you want to remain in Turkey beyond the amount of time allowed by your visa, you must appl
  8. Hello, A close friend of mine from Turkey wants to visit me in the U. K. I tend to go every year but this year I would like to host him in England. He would also like to visit England.

  12. 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
  13. Hello everyone-I know things change very fast in Turkey. I am just wondering if I can stay in Turkey 4-6 months every year. Thank you in advance.
  14. I filled my residence permit application online before I used the 90 days allowed on my visa. But I didn't print it out in same day, because I thought I only need it for my residence permit appointment. So now I have overstayed and there is no point to go to that appointment (which is next week) because I have overstayed they wouldn't accept it and would send me away. Somebody told me I should go and take a trip to Rhodes for one day, that they will make me sign some paper that i understand i have overstayed and when I'm back I could apply my RP again. But I'm so nervous that if I go to R

  16. I am an italian cititzen and currently in Turkey on a tourist visa. Is there any way to extend the 90 days? I was looking on www.mfa.gov.tr. For many countries it says 90 days withing 180 days. For italian it only says 90 days. Does this mean I could leave Turkey for a day and reenter to get another 90 days?
  17. 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
  18. 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.

  19. 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
  20. i have a German passport and stayed in the beginning of the year 2 months in Turkey. Now i am back to turkey and have one month left on my 90 days in 180 days. If i understand it correctly it counts from the first day of arrival. Now, i am planning to stay 2,5 months in Turkey. Between the 90th day of my stay and the end of 180 days is a gap of 3 weeks. one option would be to go out of Turkey for this time, but since my girlfriend is living here i am looking for a way to be able to stay inside the country. 1) what are the consequences if i overstay 3 weeks? would the 180 days start a

  22. 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 sticker visa. 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 status of the visa now... Ok, the que
  23. 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 askin
  24. 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 residence permit appointment. On the day of the appointment, the immigration employee told me that he couldn't accept my papers ( I've prepared all the necessary) because he is goi
  25. Hi everyone, first post on here. I have tried to find an answer to my query but as yet to no avail. We came out on an e visa dated 15 April which expires on 11 October. We came out on 15 April and stayed 56 days, we went home 8 June and stayed out for 90 days. We came back on 8 September, planning to stay 90 days and intended to apply for a new e visa online on 12 October. We thought that if we left around 30 November that the 180 count back would still have us only using 90 days in that period. We have been told we can't get an e visa whilst in turkey. We then went to the port to ask advice,
