  1. American/Turkish Visa Ban Lifted?

    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

  3. 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
  4. OVERY STAY BY 2 DAYS

    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)

  6. Visa Problem

    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
  7. Checking Your Eligibility for an E-visa

    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 you, if citizens of your country are eligible for an e-visa, it will display the total days of the visa validity period, and the total number of days you can be in Turkey during that period. It will also tell you if the visa is a single or multiple-entry visa. If citizens of your country are not eligible for an e-visa and must go to a local Turkish embassy or consulate, it will tell you that instead. If You Have to Go to a Turkish Embassy or Consulate You should apply for your visa at least 30 days before you plan to travel to Turkey. But be flexible on your travel plans, since it can take up to 90 days after you submit your visa application for it to be approved. Turkey has an online application system for those who have to go to a local Turkish embassy or consulate to get a visa. You can book an appointment at any Turkish embassy or consulate by filling out the application form at www.konsolosluk.gov.tr/visa. The system will then generate an appointment date and time for you.

  8. 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.
  9. 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. Daily Fines for an Overstay of a Visa or Residence Permit in Turkey Daily Fee Maximum - Minimum First Month Remaining Months Albania, Philippines, Israel, Japan, Cambodia, Macedonia, Mali, Oman,Tajikistan $.50 $5-14 $14 $3.50 Belgium, Belarus, Algeria, Spain, Kuwait, Jordan, Luxembourg, Malta, Singapore, Taiwan $.40 $4-9 $9 $2.50 Ethiopia, South Korea, Hong Kong, Micronesia, Russia $.30 $3-7 $7 $1.50 Morocco, Ivory Coast, Iraq, Montenegro, Egypt, Tunisia $.20 $2-5 $5 $.50 Serbia, Fiji, Norway, Chile, San Marino (Turkish Lira) TL 13.30 TL 24.80-126.70 TL 126.70 TL 84.20 Other Countries $1 $10-25 $25 $5 Re-entry Bans Duration of a Re-entry Ban Depending on the amount of time you have overstayed, you can be banned from three months to five years. 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 Turkey Visa Forum: If you'd like to ask a question or make a comment about your visa overstay, please do so here.

Overstaying Your Visa or Residence Permit The 90-in-180 Days Rule: Many visas have a validity period of 180 days, but you can only stay in Turkey for 90 days in any 180-day period. This article explains how it works, and how to calculate it to avoid an overstay.

What is a "comprehensive check?" How long does it last and where does it take place? It is an exhaustive check of you, and your travel documents. It can occur if a border control official thinks that something about you or your documents is suspicious. A comprehensive check can take up to four hours. If it goes beyond four hours, and you don't consent to remaining there until the comprehensive check is complete, you may return to your home country or the country you came from. Back to Top.

You can visit the city of the port where your cruise ship is docked, and nearby cities for touristic reasons, without a visa. You can do this for up to 72 hours. Then you must then leave Turkey from the same port. If you want to stay longer than 72 hours, you will need to get a visa. Back to Top. What is the “ninety days in one hundred and eighty days” rule? Citizens of the UK, US, and Europe can get a visa which is valid for 180 days. You can stay in Turkey a total of 90 days during that 180 day period, and come and go to and from Turkey as often as you like. If you want to stay longer than 90 days in a 180-day period, you must apply for a residence permit. Learn more about the 90-in-180 days rule. Back to Top. I have a visa, and the 180 days of duration is about to expire. I have only been in Turkey for 40 days of the allowed 90 days. What should I do? You can get another visa, but you will need to leave Turkey, get a new visa, and return. You can leave for just one day by going over the border into a neighboring country, or by taking a ferry to one of the Greek Islands. You don't have to wait until the 180-day duration on your current visa expires, you can have two visas with duration periods that overlap. The important thing is that you don't exceed a total of 90 days in the previous 180-days at any time. Back to Top. I've stayed in Turkey for 90 days already. Now I want to return to Turkey and get a residence permit. Can I do that? Yes. You can enter Turkey if, at the border gate, you fill out a form and promise to report to the Directorate General of Migration Management (DGMM) responsible for the area where you want to live, and apply for a residence permit, within ten days. If you fail to report to the DGMM within ten days, you will be considered to be in Turkey illegally from the date you entered Turkey. Back to Top. I have multiple entries and exits from Turkey, and I need to learn how many more days I can stay in Turkey and comply with the 90-in-180-days rule. Is there a calculator I can use to be sure I get a correct number of days? Yes. See the External Links section at the bottom of this page. It has links to an online calculator and also apps for your smart phone to do an accurate calculation. The immigration official didn't stamp my passport when I entered Turkey. Is this going to cause problems for me? Probably not, since your entry to Turkey will be recorded in the police system (the police control the borders and entries and exits). But if you need to, you can go to the nearest passport police office and get a report of your entry into Turkey and keep that with you. Back to Top. What will happen if I overstay my visa? You'll be fined at the border gate when you leave Turkey. If you have exceeded the duration of your visa for more than ten days, you will receive a ban from re-entering Turkey. The fine, and the re-entry ban, increases according to how long you have overstayed. The ban can be from three months to five years. Learn more about overstaying your visa. If you are caught overstaying your visa before you go to the border gate to leave Turkey, you may be deported. This can happen if a policeman asks you to show identification. If your overstay is a short one, they may be lenient and tell you that you need to leave the country. Then again, they may not. So don't overstay your visa. Back to Top. If I don't get an e-visa, can I get a regular visa when I arrive in Turkey? The old "sticker" visa has been phased out. There are kiosks at the border gate of international airports where you can get an e-visa when you arrive. However, this will involve a lot of time and hassle. If you get an e-visa before you visit Turkey, you can immediately go through border control when you arrive. Back to Top.
  11. Overstaying Your Visa Or Residence Permit

    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 dictates fines and re-entry bans, based on the number of days of an overstay. The fine is paid at the immigration desk at the port when you leave Turkey. Re-entry Bans If you don't pay the fine, or if you have overstayed for more than ten days, you will receive a ban with a duration depending on how long you over-stayed. The shortest ban is 90 days. The longest is five years, with a maximum of 10 years in cases where the foreigner is determined to be a threat to public order or safety. Dealing with Border Control Officials Always be polite and respectful to border control officials, especially when you are leaving after an overstay. There have been many cases where the border control official involved has assessed a significantly lower fine, and not banned the traveler at all--even after an overstay for several months. Overstaying your Residence Permit The rules above also apply for overstays of a residence permit. If You Are Still Living in Turkey Unless your overstay is a very long one (especially if it's six months or more), you may be able to go to the Göç İdaresi Genel Müdürlüğü (Directorate General of Migration Management, or DGMM), pay the fine, and extend your residence permit. If you haven't overstayed for more than six months, and are told that you need to leave the country and serve a re-entry ban, contact your country's embassy or consulate. There may be a a consular official there who can call someone at the foreigners' bureau and smooth things over, and perhaps get you a lower fine as well. There is no guarantee that it will work, but it has worked in the past for some foreigners. Important! If you have overstayed your visa or residence permit and need to catch a flight at the airport, go early and go through passport control well before your flight. It could take an hour for the immigration officials to calculate your fine or ban, and for you to make payment for it. Then, if you miss your flight, you will have to book and pay for another one. For more detailed information about how much your fine or ban might be, see Fines and Bans for Overstaying Your Visa or Residence Permit. Arrest and Deportation for Long Overstays If you are caught on the street with a significantly long overstay, you will be subject to arrest and deportation. If this is your situation, contact your country's embassy or consulate to make arrangements to turn yourself in, and make arrangements for leaving Turkey. By self-reporting with consular assistance, you can avoid being arrested, jailed, and deported.

  12. Student Visas

    The subject of visas and residence permits can be confusing, especially if you haven't done any international travel before. Basically, the visa allows you to enter Turkey for a certain time. A residence permit allows you to stay and live in Turkey. You'll first you'll apply for and get your student visa, then enter Turkey. After you arrive, you'll apply for your residence permit, which is an ID card you must carry with you. Coordinate With Your Student Affairs Representative You should get an orientation package from the school you will be attending, with a list of documents you'll need. Be sure to coordinate with them and follow the instructions they provide. Online Student Visa Application You'll go to http://www.konsolosluk.gov.tr/ to apply online for an appointment at a Turkish embassy or consulate. During the application process, you'll also upload various documents to support your application (see below). Then, near the end of the online application process, you'll select a convenient date and time for your appointment. Here are the common documents required: Student certificate or acceptance letter from the school you will be attending Passport, with an expiration date at least 60 days beyond your duration of stay Passport-sized photo Letter from your parents or legal guardian giving you authorization to travel and study in Turkey Statement that you will have enough money to live on while studying in Turkey Once you have these documents, you can start the online application. You'll make the application at http://www.konsolosluk.gov.tr/. The site is available in Turkish, English, French, and Arabic. During the first part of the online application process, you'll select the Turkish embassy in Washington, DC, or one of several Turkish consulates in various parts of the US. The one you select is the one where you will be booking an appointment to submit your actual application for your student visa. You'll also provide your personal information, passport number, and other information as required. Then, you'll upload scanned copies of the documents above, including your photo. Finally, you'll select an appointment date at the Turkish embassy or consulate that you selected previously. Once you've completed the online application, you can download it and print it. You'll need to take that with you to your appointment. Your Appointment On your appointment day, you'll take the printed copy of your online application, and the hard copies of the above documents with you. You'll meet with a Turkish consular official, who will go over your documents and approve your student visa. Receiving Your Student Visa It will take a few weeks before your student visa is approved. The Turkish embassy or consulate will notify you when it is ready, or tell you when to come back and get it. You will need to leave your passport with them, because the student visa is a stamp which is affixed to one of the pages in your passport. Coming to Turkey When you arrive, show your passport, with the student visa, and the border control official will let you in. After you report to your school, you'll get a briefing on the student residence permit process, and also make a similar online application for that. You should apply for your student residence permit within 30 days after your arrival.

  13. The 90-in-180 Days Rule

    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. "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 July 3rd. 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 July 3rd (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. The Purpose of the 90-in-180 Days Rule Before this law was passed, tourist visas were valid for 90 days, with no 180-day restriction. And they could be renewed every 90 days, by just leaving the country and returning (even on the same day). Residence permits were expensive (up to 900 TL per year!). So foreigners would live in Turkey on a long string of 90-day tourist visas. When their visa was expiring, they would take a ferry to one of the nearby Greek islands (or cross the border and go to another neighboring country), and then return and get a new visa to stay for another 90 days. Besides implementing the 90-in-80-days rule, Turkey also significantly lowered the cost of a residence permit. 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. Then you must apply at the Directorate General for Migration Management office in the province where you intend to live. You can get the required form from the immigration officials at the port of entry.

  14. Turkey's E-visa System

    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.

  15. An Introduction to 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 apply for a residence permit. You should make this application within 30 days after arriving in Turkey. Residence Permit A residence permit allows you to live in Turkey at a registered address on a permanent basis. Typically, a person wanting to stay in Turkey beyond the duration of their visa will apply for a short-term residence permit, which is valid for up to one year. Residence permits can also be extended. The E-visa System Citizens of European countries, the US, and many other countries can obtain an e-visa online. It is an easy system to use, much like buying an airline ticket. You pay for the visa with a credit card. The system will then e-mail your e-visa within 24 hours. Then you print the e-visa, and bring it with you when you enter Turkey. You must also keep it with you, along with your passport, while you are in Turkey. Citizens of some countries must obtain a visa from their local Turkish embassy or consulate. Here you can find out if you are eligible for an e-visa, or if you need to get one from a Turkish embassy or consulate. Passport Validity Requirements Your passport must be valid for: At least 180 days beyond the date you enter Turkey. At least 120 days from the date you leave Turkey. At least 60 days beyond the expiration date of your visa or residence permit. Visas for citizens of Europe, the UK, and the US have a validity periods of 180 days. So your passport will have to be valid for 240 days beyond the start date of your visa. Health Insurance If you want travel insurance which covers the duration of your stay, you can buy it online by searching for travel insurance companies. You can also get a free quote from the company we work with, World Nomads Travel Insurance. Visa Duration Visas can be single-entry, which means you can enter Turkey one time and then leave, or multiple-entry, which means you can come and go as often as you like during the validity period of the visa. Tourist e-visas issued to citizens of the UK, US, and European countries are valid for period of 180 days. But you can only be in Turkey for a total of 90 days during any 180-day period. This is called the 90-in-180-days rule. The validity date of an e-visa will begin on the date you enter into the online e-visa system (your projected date of arrival). You don't have to enter Turkey on that date, but the 180-day validity period will begin on that date. Entry to Turkey for Cruise Ship Passengers If you arrive at a Turkish port on a cruise ship, you may enter Turkey for touristic purposes to see the local sights for up to seventy two (72) hours. If Your Visa is Denied If your visa application is rejected, you will receive a letter explaining why it was rejected. If you want to appeal the decision, first write a letter to the authority which rejected it. If your visa is still rejected, you can take the issue to court if you want.

  16. overstay abroad

    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
  17. Moving abroad before army

    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.
  18. 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
  19. 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.

  22. Visa and RP

    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.

  23. 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 :-(
  24. 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 .
  25. 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!!!
