I have been in Turkey for 2 months and 25 days on a 3 month tourist visa. I have applied online for the short term residence permit 3 days ago but am not yet appointed for an interview.

Can I stay in turkey beyond my visa period or should I exit and re-enter the country for the interview?


No, you don’t have to leave the country. The UK government travel advice for Turkey states:

If you plan to stay in Turkey longer than 90 days, you must apply for a residence permit before the 90 days ends or apply for a longer-stay visa before you travel

So as long as you apply for it before your visa expires you can stay in the country.
