Getting a Visa for Turkey
Country citizens that will need to purchase their visas at a Turkish airport will need to hand in the exact amount as change might not be given.
The visas are normally for three months. However, you can make multiple entries during this time period. While you are in Turkey, you can extend your visa for a further three months (for only once) from the Foreigners’ Department (Yabancilar Subesi) of the Security Division (Emniyet Mudurlugu). We advice you to apply at least couple of weeks before your visa expires.
If you are travelling to Turkey with the intention of staying longer, you can get a long-stay visa. When you arrive in Turkey, you can go to the Yabancilar Burosu, who will convert your three-month visa to a residence permit (ikamet tezkeresi), initially for a year. After one year, you will be given an extra three or five years residency permit. There are also solicitors who can obtain this permit for you.
If you do not want to apply for residency permit, but would like to stay longer than six months, then you can travel to a Greek Island, Bulgaria or Northern Cyprus on a daily trip every three months to obtain another three-month visa stamp.
