Re: Leaving car in Turkey

My questions are:

1) I need to travel (by air) from Istanbul to London and back, my understanding is that the car will need to stay somewhere with customs, where is this place? is it in the airport? how do I get to it?

2) Can I have the car in my wifes name (but she won't be in the car when I enter, she will already be in Turkey) so that she still has the car when I'm away? If so how will it be stamped on her passport? can it maybe be transferred to her while in Turkey for example?

3) I have conflicting information on how long the car can remain in Turkey, is it 6 months every year? can I just go and get a different car every 6 months? This way I won't have to buy a car in Turkey and pay 5 X what the car is worth in the UK.


Many thanks in advance for the help
1] If you wish to exit without the car,you must contact the Gumruk in advance at the airport of departure & inform them.It is now possible to leave the car at your home address in Turkey.

2] If you enter with a car not in your name,you must have POA prior to entering to use the car so as to be able to enter Turkey.As for her driving it,you'll need to make enquiries to the Gumruk as she will be classed as a resident if already here,so not sure how that will pan out.Normally it's only the person importing the car who can drive it whilst in Turkey.

3] The car can stay for as long as the time on a tourist entry 90 days max. If you hold an RP it can be up to 2yrs,then unless you register the car with Turk Touring & pay the bond etc to change to Turkish'M' plates it must leave.
Both the car and/or person entering must then be out for a minimum of 185 days before being able to re enter with the same car or another vehicle.
