Firstly, you should know it will be beneficial for you and your family to live in Turkey legally and stay in the country for the duration of your stay in accordance with the purpose of your visit. If you have exceeded your legal stay in Turkey or if you have an invalid visa, residence permit, etc. If you are in the country with a visa, and you leave the country without paying your administrative fine, it is likely that you will be banned from entering Turkey for certain periods. There are legitimate visa and administrative lawsuits to remove this decision for foreigners who have been banned from entering Turkey, and we have already mentioned these issues in detail in our related article. In this article, we will briefly talk about whether it is possible for foreigners to re-enter without paying administrative fines after the entry ban.
There Are Two Different Alternatives
Foreigners who violate the legal right to stay in Turkey can be banned from entering Turkey for a period of 3 months, 1 year, 2 years or even 5 years if they do not pay the administrative fines when leaving the country. Returning to the country is a very difficult process for foreigners who have been banned from entering Turkey. In this way, it is not possible for foreigners who are temporarily banned from entering the country to come to Turkey and enter the country by paying the unpaid fine on exit before the expiry of the entry ban. For foreigners in this situation, there are two different ways to re-enter Turkey. One of these ways is to wait for the duration of the entry ban to enter the country. After the expiry of the entry ban, it is possible to re-enter the country, provided that the administrative fine is not paid at exit. Another alternative way is to obtain a visa from the Turkish consulate in the country of permanent residence for the foreigner who is banned from entering Turkey. In case of obtaining a visa from the Turkish consulate in the relevant country, it is possible to re-enter the country on the condition of paying the administrative fine that is not paid on exit. As it can be easily understood from these legal processes, it is not possible to enter Turkey legally without paying the administrative fine.
Despite violating the legal right to stay, foreigners who leave the country under the following conditions are not allowed to enter Turkey.
Foreigners who violate the legal right to stay for up to 3 months (not including 3 months), come to the border gates spontaneously to leave Turkey before their situation is determined by the competent authorities, and pay the administrative fines arising from the Fees Law No. 492.
Foreigners who violate the legal right to stay for up to 3 months (not including 3 months), come to the border gates to exit within the time allowed for them to leave Turkey after a deportation decision is taken, and pay the administrative fines arising from the Fees Law No. 492.
Foreign citizens who have exceeded the statute of limitations for more than 3 months and who go to the border gates to leave the country voluntarily and pay the administrative fines are subject to an entry ban between 1 month and 5 years. Given ban times:
Between 3 months and 6 months: 1 month entry ban
In case of expiration between 6 Months and 1 Year: 3 months entry ban
In case of expiration between 1 Year and 2 Years: 1 year entry ban
2 Years – 3 years when expired: 2 years entry ban
When the statute of limitations exceeds 3 years: 5 years entry ban
