  1. Those flights will be fine as he will be flying directly from Turkey to the UK and won't be in transit to change planes in another country.
  2. Many congratulations. Make sure it's a direct flight from Turkey to the UK
  3. Having a dog and cat may be a problem if you are renting as not every landlord allows animals. You will need to make it clear that you have a dog and cat when you inquire about properties.
  4. Premiums went up in July, of this year from 234.86TL to 245.16TL. Just to note that premiums will go up every January and July.
  5. Yes, as stated they will return all documents back to Ankara and then the courier will pick them up. It usually takes 2 or 3 days, but can take longer as it depends and where your husband is living. If he paid for the courier service they should send him a text message. You won't know until you receive your documents back as to whether he was granted the visa or not, so it is really a nail biting time for you right now. Vetvatic, there is no reason to post a photo as it wouldn't prove anything It would, however be a good idea if you posted in the Meet and Greet section and introduced yo
  6. By rights yes he should have changes made to his kimlik. Whilst they are only asking for his ID card to be translated to prove who he is, I was just wondering what they would say about his status showing that he was listed as still being married would be. I suppose if he took his decree absolute together with a translation of it, it would solve the problem Yes, you can still have a civil wedding here. If you read other posts about getting married on the forum you will see that you will need to bring certain documents with you and what you need to do when you get here. Not sure which pa
  7. As the registry office have asked for his kimlik to be translated there is a section on it which states whether he is married or single. Because he hasn't had his decree absolute his kimlik will show that he is married and he won't be able to change his status until he has that paperwork and goes to the Nufus office to make the change. He will then get a new kimlik showing he is single again. Not sure what you mean by having a blessing in Turkey. Do you mean having a Nikah ceremony? A Nikah ceremony is not recognised in Turkey as being legal as it just a religious ceremony. It would howe
  8. Hi Linda, congratulations on your forth coming marriage. I have just added a bit of extra information. When a British person has a civil marriage in Turkey the UK does recognise the marriage as legal, without the need to register it in the UK. However, when a Turk marries a British national in the UK the marriage has to be registered at the Turkish Consulate. Until the marriage is registered at the TC it will not recognised as being legal in Turkey. What is your partners immigration status in the UK? Procedure and documents for registration of a marriage between a Turkish and foreign nat
  9. Fingers and toes crossed that you won't have to wait much longer and that you get a yes :)
  10. Couple of links below hope this helps. Not sure how up-to-date they are though. Probably best to double check with the relevant consulate to make sure. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visa_requirements_for_Turkish_citizens http://embassy-finder.com/travel-with_turkey_passport
  11. Sorry to hear that Tony after only such a very short period of time. Normally what was yours before your married remains yours. Once you are married anything else is shared 50/50. I hope you got your pension, if it was a lump sum, before you were married. I hope one of our lawyers can answer your question in more depth as you do need proper legal advice. It may be because your marriage was so very short she may not gain anything from you and hope she married you for the right reasons.
  12. I'm bumping your post up in the hope that one of our lawyer members will answer you question.
  13. It's difficult to say because we don't know him. How did you meet him?
  14. Even though you are US citizen because your mother is Turkish you automatically gained Turkish nationality when you were born, and will be recognised by the Turkish authorities as a Turk. You wouldn't need a work permit, but would need to apply to your nearest Turkish Consulate for you kimlik, which is a Turkish ID card. As Sunny said military service could therefore cause you a problem. If you can't defer you have 2 options. The first would be to buy yourself out of doing national service. At the time of writing it would cost you 10,000 euros. At the moment there is a possibility it may g
  15. Hi Olivia. My advice as always is to take things very very slowly and not to be rushed into anything. If your boyfriend has been offered a 6 month contract on a cruise ship I would encourage him to take it, as it means he will be able to save some money plus as he said it will be good for his career. Good luck
