Being Passport less in Turkey? Renewing passport whilst on Tourist Visa!!

Does anyone have any knowledge or advice on this.

I have somewhere to stay for a few months in Turkey over Nov & Dec and i was planing to use this time to renew my UK red passport from abroad instead of returning to the UK.
The application requires you to send your current Passport with it and I would only be in Turkey on a Tourist Evisa thus leaving me passport less and i would have no residence permit.
What would happen to me if i was stopped with no passport? Which has happened to me before when i was living there.

Thanks
Phil.

Photocopy your passport and have it covered in plastic this will do. İ never carry my passport unless travelling and use a plastic covered copy which they accept as some Europeans only use an id card.

Agree with Beyazbayan, we did this from when we first arrived, it's far safer than carrying your actual passport around, and is accepted by Police if stopped.

Same here evo80. I have always felt safer carrying my passport.......but wouldn't necessarily advise anyone else to do the same!

Someone I know was robbed and their passport was taken from their apartment . They had a devil of a job to sort it out to return back to UK and had to cancel their flight home while they did it . . I keep a copy on my PC so if the worst comes to the worse I can send a copy on to the authorities to speed up re issue .

I hide all our important stuff - my main worry is that I'll forget where I hid it lol.

Like Evo 80 I also photocopy every important document and keep the copies apart from the originals.

Re: Being Passport less in Turkey? Renewing passport whilst on Tourist Visa!!

Why not renew your passport before you come to Turkey? I believe that you can renew 9 months before expiry date and the 9 months ae added to your passport.

In addition I have them scanned and send an email of the scan to my hotmail account, then I can access them from just about anywhere.
This includes my passport, driving licence,specs prescription etc.

I am already abroad, currently in Armenia and plan to continue traveling for as long as possible. This saves a trip back to the UK.
