Travelling Back To UK on Visa Expiry Date
 
Just wondering whether anyone had experienced any problems at passport control when exiting Turkey on the day their visa expired.

Our visas expire on 7th October and I presume that the visa expires at midnight on the 7th/8th October.

Thinking of booking a flight and want to be sure there's no potential problems before I make the booking.

Why not fly out before your visa runs out, say on the 5th October? It will take away all the concerns you may have.

That is an option Spurs but was just wondering if anyone had experienced problems. I can't see why there would be a problem but you never know.

Provided you go through passport control in Turkey before 2359 on 7 October you have no problem and are legal - even if your flight departed technically on the 8th or was late departing on the 7th.

And not forgetting you would most likely have already gone through Passport Control so no more checks.

We've left late on the last day of our visa with no problem, our only concern was if the flight had been delayed a lot. We assumed we would still be able to check in and then go through passport control even if the flight was delayed into the next day. If you are a worrier then go home the day before or earlier on the last day of the visa.

I agree with Spurs. It's not worth the worry or the risk. Return a day early !

We left on expiry day last October, no problem.
