  1. 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.
  2. Yes his evisa had expired we were in Turkey for 4 months. We are applying for his kimlik from England now. Im back here so its easier and cheaper.
  3. 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.
  4. Sorry i wasn't very specific with whats happened. He entered Turkey on a tourist visa and i entered on my residence permit which doesn't matter because 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 from here as I'm 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 doesn't then upon entry next time we have to pay the fine and we can re-enter. I didn't 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 re-entry. Hopefully we will have his ID card next time. If we don't 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?
  5. 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 I'm a bit confused by it all.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. As many of you know im married to a Turkish national and we have a baby together. He was born in the UK and was registered here as a British Citizen, however my question is this. 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
  11. I need to change my name also. I was given a Formul B? is the document you need to change name and use as proof of marriage? It contains date of marriage, place, my maiden name, my married name and mine and my husbands name?
  12. My husband and I have just been through this. We began the process recently, my husband found a job on an English website looking for Turkish workers in a Hotel in Manchester. He did a application form online, they sent him an official application. He had to send a copy to the hotel and they provided a link to the immigration office for Tier 2 visa. The hotel then sent an email saying they where processing his 3 year contract agreement to sign. In the meantime the immigration sent him an application form for the points based system to see if he is eligible for a visa. We are now awaiting a response from both parties so fingers crossed all will work out well.
  13. Hi all so as many of you know I got married in Turkey in March. I took my husbands name and it was put in our red book. Now I want to register our marriage in England so that I can change my name and also register our baby when he is born. If Yilmaz cant be with me I no I will have difficulty entering Yilmaz as the babies father unless I can prove we are married and were married when the baby was conceived (of which we were). We went to the local registry office and they gave me a piece of paper called a Formul B and told me to use this to register my marriage here. On the front is basically all our marriage details eg date, my maiden name, my married name, husbands name, place married etc. On the back it has got various translations including English and the corresponding number next to it, the same as in your red book. Do I just take this formul B to my registry office here or do I need to take it somewhere else? Anybody else had this problem? xx
  14. You don't need to get the stamp before you go to Turkey. You can get it done over there. You need to make an appointment at the British embassy to get your cert of non imped translated in to a Turkish copy which just reverses it basically to say your husband can marry legally. They will then tell you another building to go to where they will officially stamp and notarize your papers for you. You may have to wait a while to be seen for your stamp but there is always other people there waiting.
  15. Hey im looking at applying for this same visa for my husband. So he can be here in the uk with me for xmas and new year with my family and also to be at the birth of our first baby which is due in January. What paperwork have you got so far? and have you heard anything more about the application. So happy to have found someone in the same boat as me
  16. Hi I ll try to help as best as I can. The paperwork I had to supply when my husband and I got married was very simple. I had to have a certificate of no impediment from the uk, we then had to take that to our nearest embassy which for us was Ankara and pay to have a cert of no imped translated to Turkish but with the info reversed. So it was to say my fiancé at the time was getting the cert of no imped to marry me. We then had to go to the Foreign Office in Ankara and have that paper stamped with official stamps and signatures. We then had to go to our local registry office to show that paper along with my passport and birth certificate after we were then given a piece of paper stamped by them which we had to take with us including all our other documents we had stamped to our local Belediye and give our papers to them. We could then book our wedding. However I was told that there was also a new form being put in to place that needed to filled in before you could marry. Me and hubby were lucky enough to get married before that came in to place. It was a very big stress and I don't know how much hair I ripped out trying to get everything sorted. We asked a lot of questions when we went to the Embassy and the lady who dealt with us was very helpful and my husband spoke to her in Turkish as well so he could understand more clearly. Hope this helps
  17. Ken i will post photos and tell you all about it. My only issue now is the RP! The new rules ahhhhhh. My 90 days runs out 12 May! And my wedding party is 10 May. Could i leave before the 90 days runs out and come back on a new visa? Or would i have to wait 3 months in England? İ know i can apply for RP in England but now im married how would that work because surely i need my husbands papers? Ahhhhhh major stress now! Any help would be appreciated i know its hard until the new regulations come in to place.
  18. Thankyou everyone for your kind wishes. Yes Meral Tater Tot is right. Because i live in a village we are legally married and have our marriage book. But its tradition to have a big 3 day celebration later. Most people wait till the weather is better like us. İm just having 2 days 3 is too much.
  19. Well i did it. Me and my man got married 3 weeks ago. We are having the wedding on May 10th and im so excited, already looking at wedding rings and dresses. So much to do so little time. We are sorting my residence visa out on Thursday so thats another to do thing crossed off my to do list :-) any new members who want any questions answering about marriage to Turks feel free to ask and i will answer if i can. İncluding procedures leading to marriage.
  20. Hiya Linda, yes that was my post and yes the wedding is going ahead. I had a long chat with him about his behaviour and said I wasn't prepared to put up with it anymore. I told him im in my comfort zone in England where I live. Im with my family and friends I have known for years. I live in a small village myself and you cant even sh*t (excuse the rudeness) without people knowing about it so im safe here. I said to him im not prepared to be a slave or a skivvy for nobody. I said I ll help as much as I can like I do at my own home now for my parents. I couldn't live in a house and do nothing and be waited on hand and foot. Im going in to this with my eyes wide open. I fly over there next Wednesday (12th) and we don't plan on getting married till April. I ll be living with his mum and dad for that time before the wedding and nothing is actually booked yet. His sisters and brother all have their own families to look after and they hardly ever visit his mum and dad. Mostly its just villagers or neighbours that go for a chat. So I sort of have a few weeks to live with them and see how things are before we get settled down for good. I've told him to treat me with respect and I ll treat him the same. Only the next few weeks will tell, I hope its all good because I really do love him and would love to start a life with him. I no im only young still but inside I feel ready to settle down. My mum was married at 18 and had my brother at 19 so she was even younger than me. I will keep everyone posted on how things go. And just incase does any one how my marriage is legalised in England? How does my name change to his? So im married in Turkey and England?
  21. Hiya does anybody know how much it costs to have the blood test done? The nearest embassy to us is Ankara but the wedding office is near Nevsehir. Anybody know where we go to for our blood tests?
  22. No problem we are all here to help if we can. Perhaps just give her a bit of space? Let her do the running around. "Remember treat them mean keep them keen!" could be her motto too. Maybe play the same and back off a little. Hope you sort it out anyway keep us updated
  23. Could it be something to do with her family? Perhaps her family wont approve of her dating an English man? not saying it is this but some family traditions and beliefs are slightly different I think. Depending on how modern her family are. Perhaps she can only get in to a relationship with a Turkish man? Just a few suggestions but hey im no expert
  24. I remember meeting my fiancés parents for the first time, his eldest sister her husband and children also came to meet me. I spoke as much basic conversation Turkish as I could. Please, thank you, yes, no, etc. My fiancé said a few words to me in English and asked me to say them in Turkish eg Hello, goodbye, good morning, evening, night, the reply to Salam Aleikum etc. This seemed to go down well with his parents. I first tried to do the kiss hand and forehead greeting however they would not let me and insisted on a simple hand shake and nod of the head. His mum did most of the talking and smiled at me a lot. His dad just simply said to my fiancé tell her if she is going to marry you and get divorced 12 months later tell her to get on a plane now and go home and stop contacting you. I then asked my fiancé to say I loved his son very much I was prepared to move to Turkey to live with him and that nobody can predict the future, but that I want to give 100% at our marriage. He seemed to agree with me and the atmosphere seemed more relaxed. We had tea, nuts etc and just had a nice evening. When we came to leave his parents then allowed me to do the kiss hand and forehead goodbye. Now when my fiancé speaks to his parents I am the first person they ask about. They seem to care more for my welfare than his which I find sweet. They are very excited about the fact I am going back in February and are counting down the days already I do believe. In my opinion just be yourself but remember respect for your elders and let your partner help with conversation. Oh and enjoy the hospitality
  25. Thanks for all the responses, its a difficult choice to make. My friend has just came out of a marriage with an English guy who was like mine. Controlling her all the time etc. With her it got to the stage where he not only physically abused her but mentally abused her aswell, and was also having an affair behind her back. So I guess you could say you could meet a guy like that anywhere in the world? Unfortunately Turkish men just seem to have this in their nature to control. He has said to me when we are living together we will go out to market and go shopping round town and things but for the first year until I can speak enough Turkish to communicate and get by on he will be going every where with me. Could all be hearsay from him, could be the truth. Its a bi choice to make uping sticks and moving to another country away from my family and friends. I did live with him for 2 months and it was great we never argued I didn't feel he was controlling then although the part of Kusadasi we where in at the time was a bit far to go anywhere on my own so I didn't go without him. in a way I may be naïve to believe things wont always be like this and he is only this way because we are apart and he cant see where I am. But I guess its also my life at the end of the day and if I choose to make the next step of marriage and it does fail im fortunate enough to have friends and family in England to help me get home and to help me move on with my life having learnt a valuable lesson. When you truly love someone you can be blinded by the truth.
