You can be fined for overstaying your visa or residence permit. If the overstay is for more than ten days, you can be banned from re-entering Turkey. Fines and bans are typically imposed by the border control officials (part of the Turkish National Police) at the border gate when you leave Turkey after an overstay. However, if you are caught by the authorities after an overstay of ten days, you may be arrested, fined, deported--and also banned from entering Turkey for a certain time. This sometimes involves an unintentional violation of the 90-in-180 days rule. Visas issued to citizens of Europe, the UK, or the US may stay in Turkey for no more than 90 days in a 180-day period. If you lose track of the amount if time you've been in Turkey, or make a mistake in your calculations, you may find that you have overstayed your visa. Fines The amount of your fine will depend on the length of your overstay and what country you're from. They are in the equivalent of the below US dollar amounts except where indicated.

If the ban involves a threat to public order or security, a ban can be extended for a maximum of ten years. According to Article 9/4 of Law No. 6458, Foreigners and International Protection, if you apply to the authorities to leave Turkey before you are caught in an overstay, the ban will be a maximum of one year. How to Know If You Are Banned from Entering Turkey If you were banned, the immigration officials should have notified you about the ban and the duration of the ban. And just because you find that you're able to get an e-visa doesn't mean you're no longer banned. You'll still be stopped at the border gate and sent back home. If you haven't been notified that you are banned, but still think you think you might be, contact a local Turkish embassy or consulate and ask them to check your status. Having a Ban Lifted You can usually have a ban lifted by paying an additional fine at a local Turkish embassy or consulate. They will then forward your application to the ministry of the interior in Ankara, who will decide if the ban should be lifted or not. If you were banned because of a failure to pay fines, you will have to pay them at the Turkish embassy or consulate. There may also be additional fines involved. It May Not Be As Bad as You Think! Border control officials can use their own discretion on how much of a fine to assess, and how long the ban will be (if they give you one). Some travelers had overstays of several months, yet received a much lower fine than they expected, and no re-entry ban at all. On the other hand, Some travelers have became angry with the border control officials, and received a higher fine and a re-entry ban just because of their attitude. Being cooperative, respectful, and polite will go a long way. See Also Deportation from Turkey: Why and how you could be deported, especially for a long overstay of a visa or residence permit.

Hi I am looking for a bit of help. So I came to Turkey in 2012. I got my first rp and then my second one with no problems. on my 3rd rp I got caught in the new system and had a 2 day overstay. the police at the station told me to just go to Bulgaria for 24 hours and then come back and do the new apointment within 10 days. so off I went. I had a fine of 400 lira for just 2 days. I have heard that it depends on the mood of the people for the amount. there was a kid in front of me who had stayed 2 months and got the same amount. maybe the difference was that I wanted to come back and he was just leaving for good.. idk. so I got back and got the new permit. then i started to work at a school that said they got the permit for me. well i never really checked on it as i was really liked at the school and everything was fine. I resigned with the school and again they said they will handle the permits. I was happy to not have to deal with it. Now I need to leave in may because my daughter will graduate university back in america and I went to ask for the permits and all papers as they knew at the start of the year that I would go in May and return about 10 days later. They told me that they never got the permit because I never gave them my rp. Come to learn they also did not do it last year. SO at this point I am overstayed by 19 months. I know there will be a huge fine which I dont think I can pay so I have decided to go home and work for a year or so. I read here that bans can be up to five years. I also read that someone can apply to the Turkish Foreign Department back in the US and ay the fine and have the ban lifted. So I had decided to do that. But last evening I read that if someone has overstayed 2 times that they will be banned forever. Is this true? I need someone who knows this for sure and not a guess. Can anyone hel me on this ? Or tell me what I need to do in order to be able to come back to Turkey after about one year? Thanks in advance
Hi, Hoping somebody can help me out here!!? I overstayed my visa last October when I was visiting family, I was stopped at passport control which ended up in having a 3 month ban and a 660TL fine. This was paid into the police office in Ataturk airport, I still have the proof of my payment. I am due to return to Dalaman on 10th August but really am starting to worry, I have heard I can be refused but I have downloaded my E-VISA, all flights and tickets are booked. Will I have major problems when I try to enter into Turkey as I made a point of staying clear for 10 months. I tried numerous times to get in contact with my Turkish consulate in London but it would never direct me to the correct number (if anyone does have this would be a help)?? Thanks if anyone does help!
