Turkey imposes stricter visa rules

Strict visa rules on foreign travellers have started to be imposed by Turkey, limiting stays to a total of 90 days.

Turkish visitor visas issued on arrival have stated since 2010 that they are valid for multiple stays of up to a maximum of 90 days in a 180-day period.

The rule has not been enforced by Turkish immigration authorities, who until now had operated a “flexible interpretation” of the requirements.

But The Foreign & Commonwealth Office said that the visa rules have started to be fully enforced from February 1.

“Be careful not to overstay the 90 day period,” the FCO said. “Overstaying is taken very seriously by the Turkish authorities. Those who overstay the 90 day limit could be fined, detained, deported and banned from re-entering Turkey.”
