Visa Overstay

I have been to Turkey in April and intend to go back again in Sept / Oct. My 180 day visa will run out before I plan to leave Turkey.
I am faced with 2 choices leave turkey on the 180th day and stay away overnight and return next day for a new 180 day Visa. Or Overstay my visa and pay the fine.
The second option would involve me overstaying my Visa by 10 days does anyone know how much of a fine this would attract and would there be any other additional penalty imposed - ie ban on returning.

All comments welcome

Try and contact the Turkish embasy in London, it won't be easy but you have plenty of time.

Re: Visa Overstay

As long as you exceed the 90 days in 180 and you will be in Turkey at that time your 180 days are up you should go to a Greek Island overnight and come back on day 181.

I can't think why you would even think about overstaying?

Just realised that I missed a word out, and should have said, as long as you DON'T exceed 90 days....

If the fine was only say 50 lira for overstaying by 10 days and there was no other penalty it would be cheaper ad more convenient to pay the fine than Travel out of Turkey, stay overnight and return next day. maybe ????

Re: Visa Overstay

I wouldn't personally risk it as no one can say with any certainty how big/small the fine will be. The other thing is that even though you shouldn't get a ban for 10 days overstay, some people have been banned for even just a few days, plus a fine.

Re: Visa Overstay

Go to the islands, the fine will be couple of hundred lira but more importantly you do not want all the trouble when your leaving to go home.
Its just not worth the grief.

Why would you like to do it? Respect the law - to go to a Greek Island is a cheap escape from violating the law premeditated
Members here are complaining about many rules which are not being observed by Turkish people - so don't do the same.

Re: Visa Overstay

If you break the law here it could be that you cop the wrong person who deals with you, hence the penalty may not be written down anywhere. To break it unknowingly is one thing, to break it knowingly is not a very clever move. Its not ALL Turks who love us in their country.

Re: Visa Overstay

There may be another option check at your local police station İ was able to buy an extention of 14 days. Don't know if you still can but worth asking.
