Question:
I'm from Bulgaria . I have a flight at the end of this month . I’m thinking to come in Turkey with my car, and leave it in Istanbul Airport parking lot for 10 days. It is with a Bulgarian plate number . What is the order for issuing documents ? What should I do?

Answer:

I talked to information desk at Istanbul Airport today for procedures to park a non-Turkey plated car to Istanbul Airport and flying abroad from Turkey. They said following procedure should be followed for a foreigner to park his/her foreign plated car to Istanbul Airport and fly outside of Turkey without having a problem:

-Park your car to IGA Istanbul Airport Parking lot at Istanbul Airport.
-Enter to Istanbul Airport.
-Behind the check-in counter L, there is the customs for vehicles where you should make your car recorded and fill required forms.
-There will be no problem then, you can enjoy your flight from Istanbul Airport to abroad.

Since Istanbul Airport is new, the procedures change quickly. So when you park your car to Istanbul Airport parking lot, it would be good for you to ask someone there in order to verify this flow.
