Another Twist in the Trail

Another twist in the visa trail. According to advice published on the British Embassy website, there is now something called a ‘tourist residence permit’. As far as I can understand it, this permit lasts for up to six months and will enable visitors to stay in Turkey for up to nine months when combined with the standard three month tourist visa. This could be the answer for those people who come to Turkey for more than three months in a rolling twelve month period (because they have a holiday home here, for example) but whose country of residence is elsewhere. I fully accept that I could be misreading this. Maybe this has always been the case? Who knows? The dense language would never win a plain English award.

  1. Hmmm I wonder. Sounds a little too straightforward to me. No…can’t be right…this is Turkey, it has to be more complicated than that.


  2. . . it’s a game called ‘Consequences!’ Do this – this happens – Ooops! Disn’t think about that – Do this, then – Ooops1 – etc


  3. Yeah, that’s how we’re reading it, too. How it’ll all work in practise, only time will tell. It’s a really good idea if the process works as simply as it makes out.
