A man applies for his first short-term residence permit.The following documents are required:

* For passports which are not issued in Latin letters, you must have it translated by a Turkish sworn translator, and include the translation with your passport
** You make the declaration during the online application process. However, be prepared to show documentation proving this if you are asked during your interview.

Does it applies to females as well? I'll be coming to Turkey for the first time with my mother, who is middle aged and dependent on me. Will she need the exact same documents for the application as I do?

You should ask this question in the forum, but if she is dependent on you, look into getting a short term residence permit for you, and a family residence permit for her. Call the 157 helpline number to make sure, but family residence permits are also intended for those who are legally dependent on you as the sponsor.
