Unsuccessful attempts to participate[edit]

(DNC) = Did not compete

(*) The Miss Universe-delegate during the year 2000, Cansu Dere, was forbidden by the Turkish Government to travel to the 2000 Miss Universe pageant, in Cyprus, unless she could pass through Northern Cyprus, which was then forbidden for any visitor to the Republic of Cyprus. The competition committee in Turkey made arrangements for her to travel through Athens, but the day before her departure the government refused to let her go, "for political reasons".[citation needed] This was the second delegate that was not allowed to represent Turkey that year.[citation needed]

(*) Ahu Agisbas who was crowned Miss Turkey/International 2013 did not compete, due to maximum age recruitment.

(**) Competition was arranged after the deadline of the Miss Universe pageant, and the competition committee could not send a delegate. The delegate who was supposed to enter the Miss Universe pageant, competed the following year instead.
