The "90 days in 180 days" tourist visa has now been introduced for all tourist visits entering Turkey after February 2012. This visa affects tourists arriving from 63 different countries into Turkey. The visa rules close the loop-hole allowing back-to-back visa renewal runs for peopel wishing to stay for longer than 90 days in Turkey. The new 90/180 limits bring the tourist visa in line with the basic rules for a Schengen visa. For information about these changes, see our article HERE.
