this is an absolutely great forum. I just received a job offer and I am moving to Istanbul to get a job in ITU University. I have read all those interesting stuff that people have already posted but I still have some unanswered questions about my move there.
1) My employer will be dealing with work permit but what about residence permit? Do I have to show that I will have sufficient funds to live or will my contract do the job?
2) As I can understand, I will need to register with the police when I come there. Is this correct?
3) My girlfriend wants to join me! Great! But what about residence permit? Does she have to show that she has sufficient funds in the bank? What happens if we get married? Does she automatically get a residence permit, which however is not individual but is dependent on me? Will she be able to get a work permit if she finds a job?
4) Do you by any chance know what is the cost for EU citizens for residence permit? thanks in advanceAnd another question that came to my mind: I will be insured through the public sector system, what about my girlfriend if she gets a residence permit? Will she be insured?
