I am travelling to turkey in 2 weeks for 5 days. I hold a UK passport (expires in 4 months) but also hold a Aussie passport. Can I travel to Turkey on my Aussie passport and return to the UK on my UK passport? Is this possible. I know travelling to Turkey on a Aussie passport I will need a visa but it was more the logistics on what passport to use at what stages of travel. Please let me know? Thanks

e.g. Would I use my Aussie to passport to leave the UK and go through Turkish immigration with visa and Aussie passport? When my trip is over do I leave with my Aussie passport and come back into the UK with my nearly expiered UK passport

Or do I leave with my UK passport, and then show my Aussie passport with visa at Turkish immigration? Then leave with Aussie and then come into the UK with my UK passport?

Hi thank you for your message, please note that I will look to provide an accurate but nevertheless speedy reply to your inquiry. I will endeavour to help you today.

You should use the same passport going out and back, therefore it would be best to use your Aussie passport. I trust this assists

leaving the UK on my Aussie passport and NOT coming back into the UK on my UK passport won't cause any issues?

No that should cause you no issues. I trust this assists

I once read you should leave the county with the passport you entered with... I entered the UK on my UK passport last time. Is this not the case?

It does not matter either way, it is better you leave the country on the same passport you will be returning with. I trust this assists
