Turkey Deport Process for French Citizens
Dear visitor, welcome to Inforeigner. On this page, we will try to give you the most detailed information about the Turkey deport process for French citizens.
Deport decision means the deportation of a foreign national who is in Turkey and a ban on entry into Turkey. If the foreign national is in violation of the visa in the Republic of Turkey (for example, staying for 6 months with a 3-month visa) and engages in illegal and immoral activities, he/she is deported. In addition, if he/she is engaged in activities such as being dangerous for the public and national security or health, using his/her visa for a specific purpose for a different reason (for example, working without a work permit), he/she will be deported as a result of these situations.
Persons who are not bound to the Republic of Turkey by citizenship are considered as “foreigners” within the Turkish legal order. Foreign persons have a different legal status. However, the basic factor in accepting a person as a foreigner is whether or not he/she has Turkish citizenship.
In order for a French citizen, who has been deported and processed, to re-enter the Republic of Turkey, the ban on entry must be lifted, that is, the deportation decision must be lifted. Abolishment of the deport decision may present very important situations for foreign nationals. For example, deported persons have to live separately from their spouses and children, or they may face problematic conditions in the countries they are sent to.
Reason for Deport of French Citizens
The most crucial issue regarding the annulment of the deportation decision is the reason behind the deportation decision. Accordingly, French citizens may be deported for a short time or banned from entering Turkey for a lifetime. The reasons for deportation may vary. Among these, we can list the most common reasons such as exceeding the visa limit or not extending the residence permit period. When we consider the illegal behavior of a foreign national (in this case a French citizen) in the Republic of Turkey, which we have identified as one of the most fundamental reasons, we encounter the following reasons in practice related to this:
The reasons we have enumerated here are only some of the reasons. It is also possible for the French national to be deported for other reasons. Depending on the reason for the deportation, the duration of the person’s entry ban is also determined. As we have mentioned, different durations occur depending on each reason. However, when we look at these periods in general, we can see that they vary between 5 months and 5 years. In some cases, this ban can be up to 10 years.
In some cases, a restriction code is set for the deported person, depending on the reason for his/her deportation. For this reason, it is very important to remove the code that has been processed about the French national. It is equally important to continue this process with the help of an expert. As a matter of fact, before starting the deport removal process, it is necessary to check what kind of restriction code has been imposed on the French citizen. If the restriction code is not informative but restrictive, the action to be taken changes somewhat and becomes more difficult. You can read detailed and comprehensive information about the restriction codes, which are the program that bans foreign nationals from entering Turkey, on our Deportation page.
Who Makes the Deportation Decision?
The General Directorate of Migration Management of Turkey or the relevant governorship decides on the deportation of the foreign national. At this point, the foreigner’s entry ban period is determined and the authority of the administrative authorities is quite wide in determining this period. However, a period of time will still be determined within the limits stipulated in the laws. As we mentioned, the powers of the administrative authorities are wide and these powers are sometimes used impulsively. However, judicial remedy is also open against an authority used in this way.

It is possible for the deported person to return to Turkey before completing his/her deport sentence. The possibility of this situation depends on the correct and fast execution of the relevant legal procedure. For all these reasons, it will be the most beneficial way for the French citizen to request legal assistance from experienced experts on the subject of the person who has been given a deportation decision.
