UK vehicle in Turkey

Hello People,

Not been on here for a while so please bare with me. I have a question regarding the length of time I can keep a UK vehicle in Turkey?

I appreciate this has probably been covered dozens of times already but please do me the courtesy and tell me again, as I am thinking of driving over.

Thanks in advance.

The law has changed and the time increased from six months but the vehicle is still attached to your passport. Check Yelali site.

Re: UK vehicle in Turkey

You can now keep a vehicle here for a maximum of 2yrs on a temporary import,even if not retired, but you will need to keep it ''UK legal'' and also purchase green card insurance as you enter at the Turkish border.

Feeders- have you any idea as to what the green card process is at the border and if so the cost for 10 weeks or so. ?!

Re: UK vehicle in Turkey

I can only assume you will need to drive back to the UK for an MOT or be flush enough to come over in a new car . As for RFL,then that can be done via a UK bank or a card i would have thought.
I'm led to believe there are insurance broker shops within walking distance of most border controls if you purchase on arrival,as to cost i have no idea i'm afraid.
