Re: Taking car into Turkey

I can only write from personal experience, but we drove to Turkey for the first time in April, and were turned back at the border. We were allowed to enter, but the car wasn't.
I have since read somewhere that the 185 day rule doesn't now apply to retired people. No idea if this is true. Probably down to interpretation as usual.
I am not willing to risk that long drive again!

So the car seems to be the problem area - but we're you given a reason why? Also did u enter on an RP or on a tourist visa? Is there any differences in the rule between the two ? I will try and phone the Dalaman number and also customs at Ipsala and Edirne. I will feedback.

Re: Taking car into Turkey

We have residency. We were told that we couldn't bring the car in, as we, not the car, had been in Turkey for more than 185 days in the previous year. This was at Edirne.
Lots of phone calls were made, but we had to turn back.
All these rules seem to contradict each other.
We saw a lot of Europe on the journey, but didn't expect to see it all again so soon!

Re: Taking car into Turkey

I plan to leave Turkey in 18 days in my UK car. Me and the car have been in Turkey for 8 months. I will ask when I leave at Ipsala. The stamp in my passport allowes the car to stay until 2nd March 2017. I plan to come back late December in the same car. Who knows what could happen.

I've heard different things from different people and different customs officials.

What a pain in the posterior.

Re: Taking car into Turkey

If anyone finds them self stuck at the border because the car is not allowed I will offer to buy the car van or bike etc. I have bought many recently as people do not understand who is and who is not allowed to take one in to Turkey

Not sure if this is an offer to help or trying to take advantage of folk who are in difficulties many miles from home!

Re: Taking car into Turkey

No compulsion I would imagine , take the money or run. The choice may suit some.

Re: Taking car into Turkey

PLEASE READ IMPORTANT.

I believe that the 185 day rule has been abolished according to my friend in Turkey who regularly brings cars into Turkey.

185 GÜN ?ARTI ?RESMEN? KALKTI - Dünya Haberleri

I am still getting to grips with this but I believe it's good news
