Deportation from Turkey as a foreigner can occur if you violate immigration laws or engage in criminal activity. The process can be difficult and may involve detention until arrangements for your removal are made. It is important to abide by all laws and regulations to avoid the risk of deportation. If you find yourself facing deportation, it is recommended to seek legal assistance.
In Turkey, applications for residency can be denied for various reasons, such as incomplete documentation, criminal history, or national security concerns. It is important to ensure that all required documents are submitted correctly and in a timely manner to avoid any delays or denials. If an application is denied, the applicant has the right to appeal the decision or reapply after addressing any issues that led to the denial.
What should be done in case of facing criminal charges?
You may be accused of criminal charge as a foreigner in Turkey. First of all, ignorance of the law is not an excuse. One cannot be deported until the criminal case ends and having found guilty in accordance with Turkish Criminal Law (Article 59 - Turkish Criminal Law no 5237). But the government does not wait until the result of criminal trial. Therefore you need to take action as quick as you can.
You will be taken to the police station for a statement. After that you will be put in a deportation centre (Geri Gönderme Merkezi – Removal Centre). You then have 7 days to apply to the courts in order to stop the deportation process. (Article 53 - Foreigners and International Protection Law no 6458) There are two sorts of cases. First of the cases is the objection against decision of custody in the deportation centre and the second one is the objection against the decision of deportation.
You (or your lawyer on your behalf) need to inform the deportation centre as immediately as you (your lawyer) can when you apply to the courts. Otherwise you will be deported by the officials.
