    Residence renewal

    Hi Ken thanks for that information. Because mine is a Family permit im a bit confused about 180 day rule in 12 months. Does it mean in a 12 month period if you have been out the country for longer than 180 days you cannot renew it you have to apply as a first permit. or does it mean 180 days since your permit was issued? Ive left a few times over the last 2 years the longest being 6 months when i returned to England to have my baby.

    Residence renewal

    So i could renew earlier than the expiry date. Which website do you use to make an online appointment? And where do you go? It was still the police station when i got my first one. So sorry for all the questions redders.

    Overstayed visa by 2 months

    No Eruza because he wasent born in Turkey he was born in England. Update anyway we received his Turkish ID card in the post. So overstayer or not nobody can stop him from entering Turkey now as he is an official Turkish Citizen.

    Overstayed visa by 2 months

    im not applying for a residence for him. We are applying to get him a kimlik so he can be a Turkish citizen. We want him to have a Turkish Identity card. I will continue with the kimlik application and if that is unsuccessful then I will get in contact with the Turkish embassy or Consulate. Thanks for your help.

    Overstayed visa by 2 months

    Hi Ken thanks for your reply. Sorry i wasent very specific with whats happened. He entered Turkey on a tourist visa and i entered on my residence permit which dosent matter becauae its my son who has the problem. We attempted to apply for him a Turkish Identity card from inside Turkey and sent the documentation from Turkey to the Consulate in the UK. However we had problems with documents that we forgot to send so its taken us a long time. So i came back to the UK to try and sort it out feom here as im closer to the consulate then. So when we came through passport control at Antalya they took me and my son in to the police office put some information in the system and printed me off the piece of paper to sign that says he is banned for 60 months. From the little understanding i had of him due to the language barrier he said if my son has his ID card next time we enter Turkey there wont be any problems however if he dosent then upon entry next time we have to pay the fine and we can renenter. I didnt realise the paper had a standard paragraph on it and i thought it was a bit harsh to ban him for 5 years. 3 months maybe and pay the fine on renentry. Hopefully we will have his ID card next time. If we dont then do we still need to show bank statements from my husband to apply for him a residence permit or would it be quicker because i already have residence there for 2 years?? Thanks again Ken

    Overstayed visa by 2 months

    So my 8 month old son has overstayed his visa by 2 months. This is due to me and my husband applying for a Turkish ID card for him and having problems applying from Turkey. (long story short couldn't send postal order from Turkey so had to send all documents to my parents and have them send postal order from UK) upon departure from Antalya last Tuesday 15/09/15 myself and my son where taken in to the police office. They put my sons passport details in the system and printed off a paper for me to sign. They said from what I could understand that when we next enter Turkey if my son has his id card then we have no problems we can enter without any issues or having to do anything. However if for some reason we don't have his ID card they said we have to pay the fine. But on the paper it says he is banned from re-entering Turkey for 5 years. So does that mean that if we don't have the ID card we can pay the fine and re-enter with no problems or do I still have to pay the fine and still have to serve the ban. Sorry im a bit confused by it all.

    Evisa and residence.

    So me and my baby boy arrived in Turkey in May. I already have residence here as many of you know, but I had to purchase an Evisa for my son. Upon arrival at Istanbul they stamped my passport as per usual and entered it in to the system. I gave them my sons Evisa and passport next and they didn't put an entry sticker in his passport. Does this mean he has been covered in my residence? Any answers would be greatly appreciated.
  11. Has your fiance been married before? If not she just needs a certificate of non impediment from her local registry office in Wales. You then need to make an appointment at your nearest British Embassy and have her certificate translated in to Turkish and have one printed for you aswell to say you havent been married before. You then take it to be notarised, once you have the stamp you go to your local belediye and show all papers, passport etc and they will advise you further. I married in March 2014 in Turkey howeve rthe system may have changed since then. Just check at your local registry office where you purchase Kimliks and other documents.

    ID card for my baby

    Thanks Yabancigirl, as mentioned by meral and cayaholic said im just not too sure about military duties? Will check when I get to Turkey next month. Slightly different for you as you have a girl not a boy.

    ID card for my baby

    Don't really understand what any of that had to do with my question. I wasn't asking whether the healthcare system is better or if it is a more child friendly environment so please can you either answer the question or stay out of it. And I agree with you cayaholic England is much better and if it is that sh*t to live here then why are so many of you desperate to get in to our country to live? And I would actually say England is more modern than Turkey because at least we are part of Europe!

    ID card for my baby

    He wouldn't be a Turkish national though would he because he was born in England and that's stated on his Birth certificate plus he will have a British passport. So surely he would be dual nationality, he would only be a Turkish citizen. Correct me if im wrong.

I want him to have a Turkish ID card, his fathers name is on his birth certificate, does anyone know if its possible for him to have one? Thanks in advance
