The rules of entry of Kazakhstanis to Turkey allow extending the stay in the country for foreigners. To do this, it is necessary to cross the border with a neighboring country for Turkey and immediately return back. If you have used visa-free entry, you should know that the total period of stay in Turkey cannot exceed 90 days for 6 months.
