    Relocating from Alanya to Kas

    I came to wonder... when you live in Kaş, where do you go on holiday?
  3. I have read that foreigners do not need a residency permit to purchase property, but do foreigners need a residence permit to sell property or transfer the title deed after the death of the title deed holder?

    Correct. All you are asking is "to what address am I registered?" And that is all the paper says.

  13. Kimac All these problems that this thread is dealing with are for Istanbul only. I have not heard of anywhere else being affected. If Criminal Record Checks are needed they are always from your home country (or Turkey) irrespective of where you have actually been living. Health Insurance once you are over 65 is not needed although the definition of "over 65" can be interpreted not as having reached your 65th birthday but as being 66 ! In any case the premiums for these private policies have more than halved in the last couple of years whereas SGK is 500+TL a month I think. In terms of funds, you need to demonstrate steady income going into an account (foreign or Turkish) over the last 6 months rather than an amount of money at one point in time.

  17. It depends on what job you want. It depends on what jobs are being offered. It depends on if you learn about the jobs. It depends on how qualified you are for the job. It depends on how many other equally or better qualified people are applying for the same job. Mostly it depends on whether or not an unemployed Turk can do the same job. If so, then the unemployed Turk will always get that job. If you have a bachelor's degree and are a certified teacher of a foreign language, it will be a lot easier though, if you want to be a language teacher. Or if the job you want requires a language that no currently unemployed Turk knows.

  20. When you apply for a residence permit in Turkey (first time applications and extensions), there are two fees. The Card Fee This fee is for printing your residence permit and sending it to you. It is the same for everyone. For 2018, the card fee is 72 TL. Residence Permit Fee This fee varies according to nationality. See "External Links" below for a PDF document which has the fees listed according to nationality. Single Entry Visa Fee Citizens of countries who are able to visit Turkey without a visa will also have to pay a single-entry visa fee. For 2018, this fee is 400.80 TL. Where to Pay the Fees You can pay both fees by credit or debit card using the payment system in the online residence permit application system. If you pay using the online system, you don't have to include payment receipts with your application. You can also pay the fees at any vergi dairesi (tax office), or at any branch of Ziraat Bankası or Halkbank. You will need to have either a vergi numarası (tax number) or a yabancı kimlik numarası (foreigner identification number, or YKN) if you want to pay this way. Tell the clerk you need to pay the ikamet ücretleri, (ee-kah-met ooj-reht-leh-ree) Get two payment receipts: one to give or send to the DGMM, and one for your records. See Also Residence Permit Forum: If you have any questions or comments about the residence permit application process, please ask them in our forum.

In English, this is the Turkish law which governs residence permits.
  21. Was that really only last Wednesday? I'm looking at the X-rates right now.... USD 6.46, euro 7.36, £ 8.24, & our Aussie dollar on 4.71. And the banks are giving us 18% interest ! But inflation is dragging everything back down! I wonder what's gonna happen tomorrow...... ?

    Urgent

    We also received a residency card from the postman on behalf of a friend, but he had previously handed over several speeding tickets for her at the same address. I think it depends on the postie and other local factors.

    Living in Turkey

    Yes! I read your wife's post here and it was maybe 2 years ago. Wonderful! I like a sense of security as I'm on the paranoid side and still can't understand why I can't dress like a knight of olden age with swords and stuff and a really tall horse. I'm all alone :-( I'll lose my sanity if I do not get a sense of protection (they did warn about burglary), hence a gated community. I love the current prices of the TL- USD and stuff. Thank you! I'll keep everyone posted, as well as periodically asking all manner of questions, silly or nay. Haha.

    What to expect from Turkish soldier boyfriend

    He is a Turkish soldier in the Turkish army so probably very different from the US Army. I just wish they would send him back to Istanbul. He was there when I first met him, then he was sent to the border. He has been there a few times so it is a regular thing for him. I was serious in my question. I may have had a somewhat comfortable upbringing and no one in my family is military. I know Turkish men have to do 1 year compulsory service. My boyfriend has been in the army for around 8 years I think. I don't like to talk finances with him as I don't want him to feel bad that I am financially better off than he is. I have no idea what he makes and how much of it he gets to keep (if the army pays for his room and board at the base). His brother recently also joined the army. Do Turkish men do this because they can't find other jobs? Is it better pay than other jobs? Because they give up a lot in lifestyle. He can't even travel overseas! Not allowed to leave the country.
