    As your residence permit has already expired it is not possible to reapply without leaving and reentering Turkey. At the airport you will also need to pay a fine for overstaying and must stay outside of Turkey for at least three months in order to be allowed to reenter the country. The decision on exact duration of entry ban will be taken by the customs at the airport.

    Best Regards,
