You are allowed to stay in Turkey for 90 days (not 3 months) within a 180-day period. It doesn’t matter whether you stay without interruption or come and go several times. If the 90 days limit is reached, you have to leave the country and wait for another 90 days until you can enter again. For most of the tourists, this practice is sufficient. However, if you want to stay longer than that, you will have to get a residence permission called Ikamet. The Ikamet is normally issued for one year and the application has to be made at the immigration office. To get Ikamet you need:

A passport that is at least valid until the expiry date of the applied Ikamet
- Nachweis einer Krankenversicherung
People under the age of 65 need a proof of health insurance
Proof of either a lease agreement or home ownership
- Sicherung des Lebensunterhalts
Proof regarding sufficient material resources for the duration of the stay (at least 500$ per month)
Passport sized photographs
The costs for the Ikamet are calculated according to your country of origin
