  2. Study in izmir

    The last few years it has been cold in Izmir. They had some snow last year as well. Most of the newer homes or the updated homes will have natural gas lines. I would avoid electric (air con) heaters, your bills in the winter will be high. Balcova has natural heat, yet it is also breezy in the summer. Avoid Buca, you don't have a car & it is a very far drive/ride/taxi etc. Balcova, Narlidere, Goztepe...maybe even Konak area would be ok if you don't mind a bus ride. Soon the coastal tram will be running & you can use that from alleviate some travel but that is still a little ways off. As I stated before like 2 or 3 times already...you need to VISIT THE AREA & see what's right for you.
  3. OVERY STAY BY 2 DAYS

    YES...you can will get penalized. Turkey needs to just start banning people...but knowing the system you will be fined. https://www.evisa.gov.tr/en/info/ I would like to stay in Turkey for a period of time longer than the e-visa permits. What should I do? Go If you wish to stay in Turkey longer than your e-Visa permits, you must apply at local Police Station for a residence permit. Please note that an e-Visa is granted only for tourism and trade purposes. Application for other types of visa (work visa, student visa etc.) are required to be submitted at Turkish Embassies or Consulates. If you overstay your visa, you might be asked to pay fines, deported or banned future travel to Turkey for a specific period of time. EXAMPLE: Your e- visa is valid from 17 August 2017 to 12 February 2018 for a total period of 180 days. Your stay cannot exceed 30 days. STOP OVER STAYING YOUR VISA VISITORS!

  5. Many thanks Ken both for this reply and for all the other very helpful information you have shared in articles and replies on this forum. If I could push my luck with a couple of supplementary questions... 1. I assume there is some facility to make just one appointment to cover all 3 of us (rather than having to book 3 separately) - is this correct? 2. I have recently quit my job so am having to put down £0 on the pages relating to income - I can evidence substantial savings in a UK bank account which would clearly cover much longer than the 2 month period of temporary residency that we are requesting. It seems that accepting this or otherwise is at the discretion of the individual officer so appreciate you can't give a definite answer on this question, but on the basis of your experience with these permits would you think we should be ok in the circumstances I have just described to get the temporary permit? Many thanks again David
  6. Procedure for Lost Ikamet

    Ken The problem was that we couldn't register the change of address at the Nufus because she didn't have an Ikamet. What we decided to do was simply go through the Ikamet replacement process on the old address, allow the PTT to attempt delivery at the old address (3 miles away), rely on their SMS msgs to give us an idea of when it is happening and prompting a neighbour to ring us if a PTT sticker is left on our old door and then go to the Acibadem PTT where I believe they are held. Then with a new Ikamet in hand and my one do the Nufus registration together for the new address. You're supposed to do this within a certain time of moving or you get a fine but I'm not sure how much leeway there is. Last time they wanted to see a utility contract in my name and the first bill which could mean a wait a month at worst. Are we supposed to register our change of address at the Goc Idaresi? I never did last time we moved and just put a new address on the next online application without any problems. With the total chaos at Fatih I just don't know how you would have got anyone to bother doing an address change. But now, with it being calmer it is something that could be done easily. Regarding my friend and his renewals, about 2 months ago he tried for a renewal for one of his children and was given a date bang in the middle of his UK holiday - of course there's no choice of date. So he abandoned that and tried book renewals for all of them last week only to find it was asking him to post stuff in via PTT which it hasn't been doing in Istanbul for the past 18 months. Unfortunately his Ikamets expire about now so he will need a tourist visa to come back in and will have to apply as first timers. At least that will enable him at last to get the 6 members of his family all aligned on the same date.
  7. Changing from a Work Permit to a Residence Permit

    Yes, you can apply. Since you have already been in Turkey for work you should have no problem changing to a residence permit. The main difference will be that since you won't have a job, you will have to declare (and probably show) that you have enough money or other income to live in Turkey without working illegally. When your work permit is about to expire, say, 60 days prior, apply for a short term residence permit, which you can get for a duration of up to two years. You can apply online. Get your photos taken and health insurance beforehand because you'll need to upload a scanned photo and enter the insurance information during the application process. You'll need to declare that you have sufficient funds to live in Turkey for the duration you want the residence permit for. At the end of the online application process you'll select an appointment day and time. At the appointment you'll take the hard copies of everything they require and you will probably also be asked to prove what money or income you have to live on. Of course, with a residence permit you won't be allowed to work, for that, you would have to find another employer and apply for another work permit. For a more complete overview of the residence permit process, see this section which will explain how the residence permit works, and it also has a guide explaining what documentation you will need: Short Term Residence Permits If you have any questions or run in to any problems during the process just post them here.

  10. Jobs for foreign doctors

    Dear Hassoune Hanım and Gemfamily, I'd like to get your feedback on this. I'd like to get some information regarding the denklik (diploma equivalency) procedure for my wife. Can you please let me know how your experiences were? Thank you, Kerim
  11. There would be no consequences. In fact, it would be proper to call 157 and cancel your residence permit.

    Excellent quiz, the added time works well for those with slow internet, and those for whom English is not a first language. Well done Aynur, Aferin
  13. Hello everyone, this is a great forum with great advice, a big thank you to everyone who posts on here! In short I've been living here in Turkey for around 10 months now, I have a 2 year residence permit and bought a house after getting my permit. After setting up a private company here with the intention of doing business, expenses have mounted tremendously and my savings have certainly dwindled. I searched about this but couldn't find a clear answer and I feel that very often even when asking a government official, they don't have an answer (plus my Turkish is not so fun to interact with). Can I apply for a job and get a work permit without having to change my residence permit? I feel it will be a hassle to change the status for myself and my large family. I really doubt this can be easily pulled off, but does anyone have experience with getting a work permit after getting a residence permit and what was the process? Thanks in advance, peace!
  14. During the online application system you have to declare that you have the financial means to support yourself, but at your appointment they may not even ask. In my case, they asked me to go back home and print off my last three months' bank statements, showing that I had a continuous pension payment coming in. They didn't ask for it to be translated or notarized.
  15. From what I have read, a letter from the father will suffice. However, to be sure, especially if anything has changed, you should call their customer service line at 157.
  16. What To Do In Izmir

    1 shop at the bazaar for fresh food/produce. Best suggestion is look around the internet for a good rental website.
  17. Hi Mustafa, Glad to see this is thread is of some use to others. I agree with Ibrahim with working online not being an issue. For the LLC and independent work permit, I believe it is 100,000 Lira rather than 1,500, and the hiring of 5 Turkish nationals. Yep... There is a lot of info out there if you dig for it in English but I cannot remember any specific website off hand at the moment. I want to say one was Yell Ali or something. Too, in my investigation I came across a YouTube channel called Guides.Global and they have a multiple informational videos about working in Turkey - they interview a tax attorney from Bodrum who explains things very simply... depending on the info you seek, be prepared to be let down.
  18. Bodrum

    Just wanted to see how everyone is doing w/that earthquake that was in Bodrum...
  19. Yes, also a male foreigner that marries any Turkish girl gets that distinction as well. It's a term of endearment from the Turks. "Oh you married an Izmirli?....you are my Enişte!".
  20. Married in Turkey want to divorce in UK?

  21. Turkey today

    No it wasn't busy just us and our 24 children. Not being busy is another bonus. Just being in the cold air was like taking a long cold drink. And yes, I skated but unfortunately there is no photo of that because taking a selfy while skating was too wobbly.

  23. Study in Turkey

    For example, in my country there is a forum which has really good info. about different universities and applying abroad. You cannot believe that the info. there about Turkey are really comprehensive. I gained a lot of info. there. But, now i want to have a Turkish forum. For example, I want to have more info about Izmir University of Economics. Unfortunately, from the facebook, I could not find anything useful. It has a facebook, but ... Thanks
  24. Salah I'm curious to know your experience of buying in Fethiye. Did you buy a villa or apartment? I'm also studying the prospect of buying an appartment or villa but for investment does not look very profitable. Big fish eating smaller fish scenario in hotel sector.
