RP Cancellation in process, can i enter as a tourist?

Hope someone can help!

My Turkish work permit was cancelled in April / May and my company has submitted the cancellation request for my Residence permit since a very long time, however the RP has still not been cancelled. I need to visit Turkey for a couple of days on a tourist visa and I am not clear whether I will be allowed to enter as Tourist (British national) even though in their system my RP still exists?

For various reasons I dont want to enter on a RP. Furthermore, I dont have the RP book as it was submitted to ministry for cancellation.

Anyone knows what the rules are?

Thanks a lot in advance

You are just a tourist. Come through get your stamp and enjoy your few days. U less you permit was cancelled after you committed some kind of an offence in which case you may be stopped from entering.

Re: RP Cancellation in process, can i enter as a tourist?

Hi partypixie,

No offence committed, i left the Turkish office of my co. and moved to another country with them.

It is actually my company who has been trying to get my Residence permit cancelled. My co. advisers told me that I wont be allowed to enter as a tourist because the immigration officer will see a valid RP in their system? They said by law I have to wait for the RP to be cancelled first.

I don't have so much trust on our internal advisers, hence I thought I will check on the forums first.

So for sure I can travel as a tourist?

Cheers

The RP and Work Permit are separate. Why is your company wanting to cancel it? It could just be allowed to run its course without having any responsibility for the company: they are going to use a lot of effort for no purpose.

Hi Ian,

I have forced them to cancel it. I work in UAE now which is tax free. As per Turkish laws, I will be liable for taxes on my global income if I am resident for more than 6 months. I left Turkey before six months so it made sense to get the records clear...

In any case, I am not employed by my Turkish entity anymore hence no reason for me to keep the WP/RP. I dont have any house either over there, I have completely moved out.

When does your RP expire?

Re: RP Cancellation in process, can i enter as a tourist?

I moved back to UK from Turkey when my RP was still valid. When I returned to Turkey 6 weeks later, although I still had a valid RP, I came in on a Visitors Visa without any problems. I have since returned to Turkey using the Visitors Visa system and again no problem. My RP has now expired. Unless you owe taxes in Turkey, I cannot see that you will have any problems.
