What Happen When You Stay In Turkey Beyond Your Visa Expiry Date?

07 April 2022 Life in Turkey

Visitors sometimes wonder about what happens if they overstay their visa in Turkey. Most of the time, they are foreign vacation homeowners who wish to extend their stay in Turkey without obtaining Turkish residence. First and obviously, we always advise against it.

Foreigners who openly violate Turkish rules and regulations are disapproved upon by Turkish authorities. Gone are the days when foreigners could get away with minor reprimands and carry on with their daily routine. Turkish authorities are increasingly rigorous these days, following to regulations regardless of circumstances or, in some cases, reasons. Let us look at what occurs when visitors overstay their visas in Turkey, as specified in Turkish passport regulation 5682.

 

Overstaying is defined as:

Tourists on e-visas who remained longer than the 90-day limit of the 180-day guideline Foreign residents who did not renew their residence permit

The Legal Consequences of Overstaying

For a period of time, you are blocked from entering Turkey.
If you are still in the country, you will be deported and fined.

 E-Visa for Tourists

Check the dates on your e-visa to see when it was issued. Then go over all of your passport entries and stamps. Because the day rule does not apply to continuous periods of time, foreigners who have gone and returned should add up their days. Foreign visitors visiting Turkey are unable to extend their tourist visas since the legislation requires them to apply for a residency permit in order to remain longer.

Instead, leave Turkey and return three months after your current tourist visa expires with a new tourist visa. Show evidence of address, such as a rental contract, and self-supporting financial means when applying for a residence permit. Those under the age of 65 must provide proof of health insurance or join the Turkish government's SGK plan.

Visas: What You Should Know

Anyone who overstays an e-visa or residency permission has a ten-day time limit to exit the country under Turkish legislation. Customs officials, on the other hand, have complete discretion over whether or not to use it. Also, they only take cash for fines, and foreigners must pay right away.

Customs authorities make declarations stopping foreigners from reentering Turkey for up to five years if they are unable to pay. This fine is calculated using residency permit payments + penalty fees, however it can be greater depending on the circumstances and nationality.
