Upon your arrival you need to apply for a residence permit and get an appointment within 30 days. This will allow you to travel in and out of Turkey without re-applying for a visa. Students who fail to get a residence permit appointment within 30 days will be required to exit the country and re-enter again. In this situation, the student is required to obtain the residence permit appointment within 10 days.
