According to “Resolution on Application of Certain Articles of Customs Law Number 4458” attached to Council of Ministers Resolution number 2009/15481”, persons who are resident in a territory other than Turkey can import their vehicles for private use registered in their country of residence.
The person is accepted as a resident abroad provided that he/she stays outside of Turkey for more than 185 days in the last 365 days, and in this case he/she can bring his/her vehicle into Turkey within the scope of private use.
While making the calculation of “one year”, the person’s situation in the last one year is taken into account by going one year back from the date the person entered Turkey. (For example; if the person has applied for entry to Turkey at the date of 10/11/2015, it will be checked that where this person was in one year between 10/11/2014 and 10/11/2015.)
You can temporarily import your vehicle for private use as long as it is registered in the country of residence.
The maximum time that the person can stay with his/her vehicle in Turkey is 730 days. These time limits are valid in case the person and vehicle stay abroad for 185 days.
