21.10 - Attention

People have reported the police are not accepting UK bank statements or out of date passports at the police interview. The Interior Ministry has confirmed this is incorrect, and have contacted the police regarding this issue today. Providing the bank statement shows your name clearly, bank statements from foreign banks are acceptable provided they are in English or Turkish. If the police still refuse to accept your documents, please ask them to contact the Interior Ministry and notify us by filling in our contact form with following details: Which police station, date of visit, full name, passport number and your phone number.
