Question Visa restriction change

Can anybody help me please? I have heard a rumour that instead of the 90 day in 180 day visitors visa, that the Turkish Government have or are changing this to 180 days continuous stay in any 12 month period. Has anybody else heard this or can confirm it for me? Thank you.

Visa regulations for British tourists in Turkey – update 9/3/12
The Turkish Authorities revised their visa procedures on 1 February 2012. (Please find below)

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs have now provided us with a written update which states that:-

“…An amendment to the relevant legislation of the Interior Ministry has made it possible for provincial governor’s offices to issue ex officio residence permits for touristic purposes which are valid for up to six months (including six months) in line with general provisions on granting residence permits to foreigners who have arrived in our country on a visa issued by our foreign missions, an on-arrival visa or visa exemption agreements.
Foreigners who exceed the duration of their visa, visa exemption or previously issued residence permits can benefit from the above-mentioned practice on the condition that they pay the penalty for overstaying.
In this respect, while Cabinet Decree No:2011/2306, which took effect on February 1, 2012 set the duration of stay in Turkey for foreigners as 90 days in an 180-day period, foreigners who are visiting our country as tourists can legally stay in our country for a total of nine months through a six-month residence permit which they can receive from governor’s offices upon application. …”

To summarise, British nationals who have arrived in Turkey on a tourist visa and who wish to stay on for a longer period can apply for a tourist residence permit for a stay of up to 9 months. This provision already appeared in the original regulation (full text from Turkish Police website (in Turkish)) but it seems that the application procedures have now been simplified.

Re: Visa restriction change

As i read it the 90/180 day visa still stands but you can apply for 6 month RESIDENT PERMIT to continue your stay but this will incure extra costs yet to be outlined..

Re: Visa restriction change

I believe its a visa extension not a residents permit, I think it has occurred to
the authorities that many people come to Turkey to sail or stay in their villas
don't want residency

Re: Visa restriction change

I think you might be referring to this article in Today's Zaman which was posted on here last week.

Visa policy for foreigners visiting Turkey to be eased

May well be just another rumour though...

Re: Visa restriction change

Sorry cjd...if you read it correctly it is NOT and extension to the visitors visa...but you have to apply for a six month resident visa which is totally different...confusion reigns again!!!
