Residence Permit

What Happens if Residence Permit Application is not Completed in 10 days after conditional entry to Turkey?

In our previous articles, we mentioned the details about issues that concern foreigners such as visa violations, conditional entry, legitimate visas and the meanings of foreign restriction codes. As it is known, foreigners who have been deported from Turkey and against whom a restriction code has been issued have two different legal remedies to appeal this decision. While one of them is the administrative litigation process, the other is conditional entry procedures subject to a legitimate visa. Foreigners applying for conditional entry must have valid and provable reasons and accordingly, they must apply for a residence permit within 10 days. In this article, we will talk about the details of the V84 conditional entry code and the legal situation that will occur as a result of not making a residence permit application within 10 days.

What is V84 Conditional Entry?

According to the old regulation, foreigners who were illegally in Turkey without a visa or residence permit were deported and a 5-year entry ban was applied. However, according to the Law No. 6458 on Foreigners and International Protection, which entered into force in 2014, a new practice was introduced in this regard. Accordingly, persons who have been fined due to visa violations can leave the country by paying these fines, and in case of payment of the fine, there is no obstacle in re-entering Turkey. These persons can legally re-enter Turkey within the scope of V84 conditional entry. However, they have to complete their residence permit applications within 10 days.

What Happens if Residence Permit Application Is Not Completed Within 10 Days?

As is known, foreigners who enter Turkey conditionally must apply for a residence permit within 10 days and document their grounds for application. If a residence permit application is not made within this 10-day period, foreigners are faced with a deportation decision. In order to avoid such a situation, foreigners who enter conditionally must apply to the Directorate of Migration Management in the province or district where they reside within 10 days.

  1. Hello,
    My Mom was granted entry under V84 conditions. She lives in Antalya but wants to relocate to Fethiye and made her appointment there as well (within 10 day window). She has now been told that the appointment has to be made in Antalya since that’s where she lives but the 10 days have elapsed already. What are her options now? Will an entry ban be enforced or is there an opportunity to avoid such a ban since an appointment has been made in good faith (wrong location)?

    Thank you.

    1. As the application wasnt done within 10 days from arrival, your mom should leave the country pay the penalty. Generally for this type of issues, customs officer apply a re-entry ban for certain period of time. Before leaving the country, I would suggest you still to contact İmmigration office show them your previous form which was filled within 10 days and see if they can accept it.
