Through Turkish Airlines, it is possible to buy a domestic ticket from Istanbul-Atatürk to Hopa, whereby you fly from Istanbul to Batumi in Georgia, then take a "sterile" bus across the border to Hopa, without clearing Georgian immigration.
Obviously, since this is a flight to Batumi after all, and you can't segregate domestic and international pax on the plane, you will clear immigration at Atatürk, which is also stated on Turkish's website
My questions are:
- Do you clear immigration in Hopa? If so, where?
- When clearing immigration at Atatürk and (if at all) Hopa, do you get stamped in/out, given that you have to show your boarding pass? In other words, do I get an exit stamp on the migration card at Atatürk, and get a new migration card with an entry stamp in Hopa?
