The immigration office is restricting the extension of short-term residence permits for touristic purposes. If you're living in Turkey as a renter, you're in the "touristic purposes" category.
That means your next residence permit may not be approved unless you have a good reason for remaining in Turkey. Whether your reason is a good one will be decided by the immigration specialist who interviews you during your next extension application.
If you own your home in Turkey, you'll have a residence permit in the category "property owner," and you won't be affected by the restriction.
If you're a citizen of one of the countries in the list below, you also won't be affected by the restriction.
Exceptions to the Restriction
The restriction doesn't apply to citizens of the following countries:
- New Zealand
- United Kingdom
- United States
