Import A Car - Status

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,I found similar topics but not all the answers I need.

I am french and my wife is turkish. We currently live in Paris but we'll move to Instanbul in September. Even though I'll be based in Istanbul, I'll continue to work for my french company so I'll go to Paris every week to work from tuesday to friday.

We want to import our car that we love (a Buick Enclave of 2010) that has currently a french registration (imported from US).

We want to import our car with a Temporary status (staying max. for 180 days). Is it possible if I go in Turkey as a simple tourist (no visa required for french people for staying 3 months) ?

Is it possible if I take a residence permit ?

How much it will cost (in total) and what would be the procedure ?

I read that when I go out from the country (by plane) I need to leave my car at the customs, is it true ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Welcome to our forum nonodub, I think you will find that it doesn't matter if you are a tourist or have a Resident Permit the rules for length of stay for a car are the same. if I'm wrong about that I hope someone will correct me. I don't know how much it will cost because it depend on the value of the car. Yes it is true if you leave the country the car has to stay at the Customs yard until you return to Turkey.
