Re: Taking UK car into Turkey

Hi, can anybody give me a divinitive answer as there are so many differing stories on various web sites,
I have driven to Turkey from the UK for an 85 day holiday both in 2014 & 2015, it is my intention, if possible, to drive again this summer, both previous occasions have been with an E visa and we have left Turkey before the 90 day limit.
Will I have a problem doing this a third time.
Same car, same Registration documents,
Please help.
Thanks
Jim

Re: Taking UK car into Turkey

Hi JimanDee,
The law has changed!
See the thread which is listed below this one, it is the one Sleepy has posted on just recently. You can now take a car in for 2 years but it looks as if ( although there is some debate!) that both you and the car have to have been out of Turkey for 6 months before.
The new law is on the UK consulate web site

Re: Taking UK car into Turkey

Hi!

Next month I'm driving to Istanbul. Since it's now possible to keep the foreign plate for 2 years, I won't be registering the car for a blue plate. However, I have some doubts about the insurance.

Usually car insurances (at least in Spain) cover up to 3 or 6 months abroad. I am negotiating with my insurance company so I will be covered for two years, but also looking for more options.

Does anybody know if there is any Turkish car insurance company covering foreign plate cars? I know it is possible to hire a temporary insurance at the border, so I'm guessing there must be something.

Thanks!

Jim- I have driven to Turkey twice a year for the past 8 years and stayed for 10 weeks at a time without experiencing any problems or questions re the car. Am hoping that nothing has changed since Nov 2015.

Hi Martin! No, according to Spanish regulations, the car won't need an mot for the next two years, so that's covered.
