possible Turkish tourist visa overstay HELP!

Apologies if this topic has been covered before, my friend is in a bit of bother. coming through istanbul at the weekend she was stopped for over stay on her visa (they either said 102 or 112 days in total stay) and paid a fine of 117tl.
her current visa : 17.01.15 she stayed from 17.1.15-21.3.15 total 62 days.
Previous visa : 28.06.14-14.12.14 she stayed 28.06.14-06.08.14 total 41 days
then 05.11.15-14.12.14 total 39 Days.

Are they right in saying she overstayed as we can't make sense of why they would take the previous visa into account? Has anyone been in this situation and what was the outcome? She will contact the embassy tomorrow but if anyone has any advice it would be very appreciated!
Thanks as always x

Re: possible visa overstay HELP!

The visa is for entry only. You cannot stay more than 90 days in ANY 180 day period. You can have as many visas as you like...overlapping back to back but cannot exceed 90 days in 180. So count back 180 days from the day she left then count the days she was in the country. If it is more than 90 she has overstayed.

Yes , I make 104 days. So 14 days overstay.
She needs to be careful whenever she decides to return.

Thank you for your replies, they have told her they put her overstay on the system. She had no idea she had over stayed! any idea what happens now? I suppose she will find this out once speaking with the embassy but would like to give her some idea

Thanks again x

Re: possible visa overstay HELP!

Yes she overstayed. You have to count back from the day she left. She left on the 21 March, she stayed more than 90 days in the previous 180. She had just stayed stayed 62 days and she stayed 39 in November/December, a total of 101 in the 180 days [B][B]prior to her leaving on 21 March.

You need to stop thinking of the visa start date and the next 180 days. You always have to look at your departure date and then 'count back' to make sure you haven't been in the country more than 90 days in the previous 180. It's complicated but once you have your head round the count back system you can make sure you are within the rules.

If she wants to go back she needs to look at her departure date, count back 180 days and then make sure than she wont have been there more than 90 days in that period. Simples....not, good job I'm a mathematician.

I maybe 2 days out as I have done so many versions of this I need to recheck my calculations, but definitely over.

However if you want a copy of the calculator PM me with an email address and I can send it to you.

She found that calculator online earlier but thank you for your offer. Any idea when she would be able to return?

If she puts the planned dates in to the online calculator it will work it out for her.

Re: possible visa overstay HELP!

The good news is that it look like she hasn't overstayed enough to be banned. With the calculator if she puts in what she wants to do she can work out what's possible. It could have been worse!
