  1. i read your article about the visa calculation and i also used the calculator you put as a link.but i just don't understand every time i arrive in turkey they tell me something completely different. now i arrived on the 28.2.2020 the last time i was here was from the 12.9.19-13.11.19 = 63 days.. so the online visa calculator tells me i got 90 days but at the passport control they tell me 26 days and that i have to leave after that otherwise i get a fine.. i had several of those experiences! once they thought me my visa is finished ( not in the passport control in an office) so i got a flight the next day and wanted to leave and on the airport they thought me i have 28 days left... well do i have 90 days as the online calculator says because its moving 180 days??? i hope my question is clear and you can help me...really slowly i don't know anymore!
  2. Dear forum, I’m from Sweden and moved to Istanbul together with my girlfriend to join her for her exchange semester at the Istanbul Technical University. The 90/180 rule applies to me as a tourist, however, as I have been entering and exiting the country several times this year (and will at least 2 more times this year) I am not sure how to count and whether I will need a residence permit or not. I already went here on April 18th for vacation and stayed for 11 days. On the 28th of August I came back to Turkey with my girlfriend for her school start, exited again for a week, and then came back again. I will leave again on the 28th of October and in total I will then have spent 67 days in Turkey (including the days in april). Thing is, if we count from 18th of April (my first entry) and 180 days onward, that period would end 14th of October. Does this mean, that by my time of re-entry to Turkey (which will be on the 2d of November), a new 180 day period will start of which I can utilise another 90 days of stay on a tourist visa? All the best, Marcus
  3. I would like to know if the 90 days rule is depending on the person or on the passport, means if someone has 2 passports, can he/she stay in the country 180 days by using 2 passports or not?
  4. Does time spent outside Turkey visiting Greece mean i will have extra time up to 90 day limit when i return?
  5. Most tourist visas are subject to the “90 in 180 days rule.” This means that while your visa is valid for a period of 180 days, and while you can come and go as often as you like, you can only be in Turkey for a total of 90 days during any 180-day period. Based on the European "Schengen Visa" The Turkish visa is based on the "Schengen" visa. The Schengen countries are European countries which do not require a visa for visitors from the other countries involved. However, a foreigner who is not a citizen of one of the Schengen countries must have a "Schengen Visa." It is from the Schengen Visa that the 90-in-180 days rule originates. "Counting Back" to Be Sure You're in Compliance To know if you have exceeded your 90 days, you must "count back" 180 days. If the total time of your stay in Turkey has not exceeded 90 days in the previous 180 days, then you may remain in Turkey until you reach a total of 90 days in the previous 180 days. 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 April 4th. Next, look at the entry and exit stamps on the pages of your passport to determine your total number of days in Turkey on and after April 4th (you can use the date calculator for that also). It doesn't matter how many times you have come and gone from Turkey, you just need the total number of days in Turkey. Take that number and subtract it from 180. The result is the number of days you may remain in Turkey. Important: The 180 days is a "moving" 180-day period, so on any date you do this calculation, it always concerns the previous 180 day period. If You Want to Stay in Turkey for More than 90 Days in any 180-day Period If you want to stay in Turkey for more than 90 days in any 180 day period, you cannot extend your visa. You must apply for a residence permit. An Exception to the Rule If you have reached a total of 90 days in Turkey on your 180-day visa, and leave Turkey, you can re-enter only if you pledge, on a form in writing, to apply for a residence permit within 10 days. This is done on a şartlı girişi (conditional entry) form that you will be given by border control personnel when you re-enter Turkey. Then you must complete your online application within those ten days. Visa Calculators There are several websites which offer visa calculators, as well as applications for smart phones which can help you be sure you're in compliance. Check "External Links" below for a link to an online calculator. You can also visit your smart phone's applications store and search for "Schengen Visa Calculator." External Links Turkey's E-visa Application System: The site where you can apply for an e-visa, or at least find out if you are eligible for one. Calculator of travel days remaining under a Schengen short-stay visa: You can use this calculator by entering your visa validity period and how many days you have been in Turkey, to determine how many days remain before you overstay.
  6. Hello everyone my name is Dominik and I'm from Poland so i need get e-visa with 90 180 days rule,and now my question is, I was in Turkey since 05.01-24.01 and later since 20.02-26.04 all stay was around 87 days i guess, the visa valid finish the 02.07.19 and i want to get another visa for come Turkey the 06.07 for 12 days but my question is the 180 days are discounting since first day i came to Turkey (05.01)? or the last exit from Turkey (26.04)? can somebody explain me it please?
  7. I overstayed my 90 days visa, I paid fine left for month then came back, at the airport they made me sign to get my resident card in 10 days which I did but it was denied. I have now one more month for my 90 days visa if I leave before my 90 days are over and come back with another 90 days visa which I can buy online since I have an USA passport, they will let me in or not? do they will ban me for 5 years? Whats the rules please?
  8. 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?
  9. 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 this case my friend used 84 days between May and early August, and used the rest of her days at the end of September. She'd like to come back in early December. So if I count back 180 days from the date she'd like to re-enter Turkey, this brings me to early June. Does this mean they would ignore the days she had stayed between May and that June date which the system designates as the start of the new 180-day period? Would it be that she could subtract from 90 the days she had stayed from this June date on...until the entry date in December--in order to know how many days she could stay for the holiday? Or if she used all her days between May and September, would she have to wait until January to come back? (90 days after her last exit date) Note: She is German and therefore does not have to actually buy the tourist visa sticker, but the time rules still apply to her and her passport gets stamped the same way.
  10. 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 Turkey with a new e-visa after I have overstayed and paid the fine and not issued a ban on exit. For example, suppose my e-visa is valid for 180 days from January 1st, 2018 through June 30th, 2018. I arrived in Turkey on January 1st, 2018. I should have exited Turkey after 90 days on April 1, 2018. Instead, I overstayed and left Turkey on June 30th, 2018. That means I overstayed for 90 days. I paid the fine at the airport. I was not notified of having been banned. When is the soonest date I can return to Turkey with a new e-visa?
  11. 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?
  12. 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 permit while there in summer? Sorry I find the whole visa and residence thing confusing
  13. 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 automatically or would i need to do a visa run? Does north Cyprus work for this? 2) A Friend told me to apply for a residency. While the process is going on i can(actually have to) stay inside the country. He said apply in the end and before it is getting to a interview or payment the three weeks will be over and i can cancel the application. Does anyone has an idea if it could work? Or maybe there are some official ways for this cases.
  14. 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, the port police told us either start to apply for residence permit now, which we don't want to do until next year, or stay here for another month and pay a fine of 208tl each on departure, without any bans. Does anyone know if this is correct as we are loathe to stay here for an extra month without the e visa. Thank you.
  15. So I'm going to Turkey for 2 weeks on 22nd March and my visa is valid from this date. The visa is valid until 17th September. However I want to go back in summer and stay past this date, can I get another visa even though the other one would still be valid?
  16. Hi, I have a tourist visa and I wish to apply for a residence permit, but this summer I stayed in Turkey for 50 days. I'm back in Norway now, but i just have 40 days left on my visa until december. If I go to turkey now, is it too late to apply for a residence permit? I really don't understand this rules, why do you have to apply the first 30 days if you can come after your 90 days is finished and apply within 10 days.. Anyway when i enter the e-ikamet application all the dates are crossed out. And i also saw that your 90 days can be on 2 visas, so if i'm going to turkey for 1 month in the end of this visa, then when i get a new visa i can only stay for 2 months, and then the 30 days is finished again? Can someone help me, does anyone know how this really works.. I've asked the embassy in my country but they don't help me and don't answer my questions.. [emoji17] Sent fra min LG-D722 via Tapatalk
