"Foreigners are no longer entitled to stay for more than 90 days within the past 180 days"
Council of Ministers of the Republic of Turkey has decided that foreign nationals are to stay in Turkey for a maximum period of 90 days within the past 180 days. The new regime has come into force as of 01.02.2012.
Foreign nationals who used to travel to Turkey frequently and who were granted with 30, 60 or 90-day touristic visas, can now only stay up to 90 days in Turkey within the past 180 days. Thus, once they complete the 90 days period, they shall not be able to enter into Turkey again before the expiry of another 90 days. This may affect the travel plans of foreign nationals, who use touristic visas to stay in Turkey for extended periods of time.
The above stated restriction can be overcome by obtaining a valid work permit or a long term residence permit.
