Taking car into Turkey

Hi, I drove into Turkey in 2014 with my van and left after 2 month. Now it's 2016 and I intend to drive into Turkey at Ipsala in mid Feb in my car.

I understand that as of October 2015 you can now keep your car in Turkey for two years. I am entering on a tourist visa which I will extend to a short term residency visa on arrival in Fethiye. I contacted the automobile club to confirm this and they did, kind of. I have attached copy of email they sent me. Basically, if the border staff know the rules then we should be OK.

Any ideas?

Re: Taking car into Turkey

So did I until last month. I intend to stay until mid October with two 10 day trips out of the country for business so around 9 months in total. I will keep you posted when I get to the border and see what happens.

Fingers crossed.

Would love to hear if anyone has driven over recently and had the two year allowance

Re: Taking car into Turkey

Yes you can bring a vehicle in for up to two years,you will need to buy Turkish Traffic Sigorta at the Turkish border as you enter.
If you intend to travel,that will be ok,providing you don't intend to take your vehicle with you,as due to the temporary import rules,you may not be able to bring it back in,as when taken out of Turkey it cannot be returned for 6 months...

You have me worried now lol. I usually drive to Turkey twice per year - usually for about 8-10 weeks each trip. I have been doing this for 5 years now and using the same car. This seems to conflict with the rules referred to in this thread although we have never been questioned or stopped or fined? Are these rules new and if so should I be alternating the cars I use to enter Turkey?

Bringing a car to Turkey

Sp I do not think Redders information is 100% correct( Redders what's your source ?) , after my own discussion with customs I was not aware of any restrictions until you had used the initial 2 years.Then and only then would the car not be able to reenter for six months .
An additional two years will subseqently be granted if neither the car or owner have entered in the the aforementioned 6 months.

Abzlad let us know how you get on, safe travel

Sleepy- is that 2 years cumulative (eg 12 x 2 month stays) OR one 2 year non exit block stay in Turkey?

Re: Taking car into Turkey

My understanding is that it's cumulative though what I am not sure about is whether it's the owner or the car.For example,you and your car enter on the 1st of March but you fly out of Turkey on the first of June for a month (the car stays in Turkey,which no longer needs to be parked at a customs bonded facility )is the 2 year clock on the car or your passport entry/ exit.
Nothing simple here !
