I already purchased a tourist visa back in August and has not been used because my Residency visa/Working permission was able to be used from my previous job.
When I arrived in Istanbul back on 28.08.15, my visa was still legal. I could enter the country under the working permission and residency permission from my employer. Now, my visa has expired, but only 4 days ago. I tried handing them my "tourist visa", because my job took my visa card that had working visa and residency permission. I tried using my tourist E visa for entry as a precaution. My employer said that my photocopied version of the visa card will allow me exit and entry till its expiration and it did. My only concern is entering under this technicality. I don't know if this is a big issue, but it frightens me a little. I do not want to enter Istanbul Atatürk Airport and have to be sent home due to fraudulent documents.

Will I be able to now enter under an E-visa?! I've contacted consulates, employers, previous employees, friends, and no one seems to know.

I know I have 15 days to reapply/renew my visa for working conditions. I currently have an opportunity to work in Izmir, but they need me immediately and I have no documents to show yet. They are working on a "pre work permit" for me currently. However, when I get to Passport control, I won't have this paper or card. I will still have my previous photocopied work visa, but it expired 4 days ago. Could this still be used as well?

Please help.
