Quick question about 5 year ban

Hey everyone,

I understand that if you overstay your visa, you risk being banned from entering Turkey for 5 years, but I'm wondering... what causes the 5 year ban? Is it only for those who leave the country without paying their fine for overstaying their visa, or do you still possibly face a 5 year ban despite paying your fine? I've read that if you overstay for 90+ days the ban length is 6 months, so I'm kind of confused about how/why the 5 year ban is enforced.

Go down past the table for overstay info. Also bear in mind that if you are banned,you have to apply to the Turkish Embassy in your home country for a visa to return to Turkey at the end of your ban.

Re: Quick question about 5 year ban

Thank you for the info! However, I don't quite understand this.. “The length of entry ban depends on the length of overstayed period and calculated in consecutive 3 months terms. Length of ban approximately corresponds to the length of overstay period”. Maybe I'm a bit dumb, but I can't figure out how to calculate how long I'd be banned. Could someone please explain it in more simple terms?

Re: Quick question about 5 year ban

As far as I read it, it means that if you overstay for a period of between 1 day and 3 months you will be banned for 3 months; 3 months and 1 day overstay banned for 6 months and so on and so on. There is also an 'administrative fine' dependent on the length of overstay.

The end of the third paragraph after the table states:

"In case of failing to pay imposed administrative fine, a foreign national will be barred to enter Turkey for five years period."
