You can keep your vehicle in Turkey for 180 travelling days.
If you are retired, 360 days.
(must be confirmed written by the Turkish Consulate in your home country)
Days kept parking under anex.7-8 discluded.
If you want to keep your bike in Turkey for a while and exit Turkey, you have 2 choices.
Here is the link for copies of these application and commitment letter forms in Turkish and English.Please read carefully.(Printed by our government)
1-You can park it at the customs parking area maximum for 30 days(each time you apply).Price is 8 USD.per day.If time exceeds and no extension is made, it will be sold by the government.
Applications must be made by ANEX-8 form.
2-You can keep it in an official specialty biker club,private garage for 178 days.
If time exceeds,bike has to be sent to customs area...
ANEX-7 must be used for this application with garage warranty/club warranty stamp and registration details and must be confirmed by the closest customs management...No such a garage is available here yet who has the ability for formalities and can speak english and can take the risk...
Generally an empty passport page is required for enter and exit stamps.Probably you will meet a biker friendly guy in customs(most of them are) and enough space on a passport page for 2 stamps will be ok.You have acceptable excuse.(away from home country since a long time)
In all guide books,information is not current and up to date as laws are changing very fast here after accepted by the government according to EU.laws main head lines.
Anymore questions always welcome.
