Overstaying in Turkey

According to the new regulation and a recent announcement by the Turkish Ministry of Interior, this entry ban will only be lifted in case the overstayed person applies to the Turkish missions abroad for the relevant type of visa such as work, family reunion, study, long term residence, meeting, conference, cultural activity etc.

The visa applications will be forwarded to the Turkish Ministry of Interior for approval and the relevant type of visa will be issued after the Ministrys instruction.

Once the visa is granted, then it is possible to travel to Turkey and pay the fine at the port of entry.
