Cat o

Hi I recently returned from Turkey after a holiday of which I had overstayed my visa for 10 days although not intentionally when I arrived I took ill with laryngitis then I was burgled in my apartment while I was asleep as my fone n all bank cards were stolen along with my so I couldn't get a flight home until I made a police report n got money sent when I got to the airport I tried to explain this but the passport police officer couldn't speak English I even showed him the police report but he wasn't interested he gave me a fine of 134 Turkish lira which I tried to pay with English but was told it had to be Turkish lira which I couldn't get as I had no bank cards they were all stolen he then said I could pay next time on entry them proceed with giving me a 5 year ban im so confused surely I shouldn't get this ban under the circumstances n I'm not sure have I to go bk to pay this fine or not.
Please any help or information will be appreciated
Thanks

Re: Cat o

Sorry to hear about what happened to you.

You need to contact the Turkish Consulate in London.

OVERSTAYING IN TURKEY

According to the new regulation and a recent announcement by the Turkish Ministry of Interior, this entry ban will only be lifted in case the overstayed person applies to the Turkish missions abroad for the relevant type of visa such as work, family reunion, study, long term residence, meeting, conference, cultural activity etc.

The visa applications will be forwarded to the Turkish Ministry of Interior for approval and the relevant type of visa will be issued after the Ministry’s instruction.

Once the visa is granted, then it is possible to travel to Turkey and pay the fine at the port of entry.

Re: Cat o

I would compile a letter outlining your misfortune, and the consequences thereafter...There is always a chance to appeal this ban, and it sound to me you have have a fare chance imho.... Have it translated into Turkish, maybe your local kabab shop can do this for you...

And address it to
Turkish Culture and Tourism Office:
29-30 St James's Street, 4th Floor, London, SW1A 1HB

Good Luck

Re: Cat o

If it is just somewhere to holiday, go to other countries for the next 5 years. The fuss to get this done is not worth the time, money and effort.

Re: Cat o

Seems a bit heartless [ and yet ] 134 lire for 10 days . We got fined 90 each for 7 days overdue . So in some way they were doing you a favour .

Re: Cat o

Couldn't you have got someone in the airport to exchange sterling for lira, that would have made sense to me.

Re: Cat o

There was no one else in the airport or of coarse I would have given them my 50 note for 134 lira I even offered it without change for the fine
