Hi 160606, looks like your best bet would be to get new visa stickers when you land - after all it will be the 180th day - think that would be less risky than being there on an expired visa.

However, as your visit is a fair way off, I'm sure there will be a fair amount of information on here before then which may help you.

Thanks for that Marggie, you have been more than helpful, and yes I agree will keep my eye on the situation and advice here on cbf but think we would be better to buy new visa to save any problems.  Hoopefully we will be househunting while we are in Calis this year so don't want to create any unneccessary problems.

You'll need to get a new visa I'm afraid. I had the same thing last year

Well what a shambles that turned out to be. We flew in to Dalaman on the 26th April and flew home 3 weeks later. Today we flew into Istanbul Ataturk and went straight to passport control. The guy looked at our visas and said they are out of date, only valid for 90 days I asked about the new ruling but was told no, only 90 days , We then had to queue at the visa desks and I asked two different guys about the visa both said only valid for 90 days and were quite rude having a laugh about it to each other. So new visas purchased, exactly the same as the ones we have which state 90 days in 180. Hopefully you lot will have better luck in Dalaman

I read the land of lights article and there is an interesting line in it saying tourists can extend their visa for 6 months.Does anybody know how to do this.

You cant extend your visa unless you get residence permit.

I was having a peek on another forum and apparently there have been loads of problems at Istanbul
