  1. I am currently visiting Turkey on holiday and I would like to extend my stay. However, it will mean that the visa I used to come in on will have expired as it says I can only be here for a month. I arrived on Sept 14 and I am currently meant to leave on October 6. But I want to leave on October 23 or 24 depending on what the costs are to change my air ticket back to South Africa. Is it possible for me to get on the which is valid until 11 March 2020, or must I leave Turkey as I have a Schengen visa and apply for a new visa while outside the country?

Citizens of Europe, the UK, the USA, and many other countries can get a multiple-entry e-visa with a validity period of 180 days, allowing up to 90 days in Turkey. Citizens of some other countries can get also get an e-visa, but with a shorter validity period and fewer days in Turkey allowed. Citizens of some countries don't need a visa to enter Turkey.

  5. Travel insurance is required by law for entry into Turkey.

  8. This article is for those who will be applying for work in Turkey from outside Turkey.

  9. Most visa or residence permit overstays are minor issues, involving a foreigner forgetting when their visa expires or accidentally staying longer than their visa allows.

What Is a Şartlı Giriş Formu (Conditional Entry Form)? A Conditional Entry Form is a docum
  11. I have my temporary residence permit application receipt on A4 paper which states I can leave Turkey for up to 15 days. I had to leave Turkey for family reasons and due to the incompetence of the airline I used to get back to Turkey, my time outside Turkey will exceed 15 days.

  12. Hi everyoneI've asked this question to a number of lawyers/judges and no one seems to be able to give me a definite answer. In June 2013 I will have been in Turkey for 5 years. The first 3.5 years were on the 90 day visa, which I obviously renewed as necessary. Since the 90/180 rule came in, i've been on a long term tourist visa which expires next month. After that I intend to apply for the normal residence permit, for a year or so. Does the 5 year residence requirement for citizenship include time spent on a tourist visa, or do they only count the years where you have stayed with a residence

  16. I was in the process of renewing my resident permit when my mom was diagnosed with cancer. I had to leave almost immediately to care for her. I did not have everything ready to submit so I submitted what I had and left Turkey. My application was subsequently rejected. I knew that this was going to happen so I went and got a 15 day travel document. I have been in the US for 6 months which is obviously way longer than 15 days. I am ready to go back- I have my e-visa and ticket. What can I expect when I arrive in Istanbul? Am I going to have to pay some kind of fine for staying out longer than
