  1. Yeah they called me on Wednesday. They were surprised that I was the one who picked up the phone -- they wanted to speak with with someone who could speak on my behalf. When I said I could speak for myself they said "Oh are you in Turkey?" and said that after confirming this they'd be giving an OK to Ankara to issue my RP. Apparently they messed up thinking I was applying from my home country. Go figure.
  2. I can confirm they are saying it takes up to 90 days to receive your renewed RP. I went there yesterday, and the GÖÇ officer didn't bother checking my application in their system but insisted I should wait.
  3. It's been 3 weeks for me, no news either. Folks applying for their first RP in Istanbul are receiving the much awaited SMS from the PTT within a week. Anybody else has news on that -- especially people renewing their RP?
  4. You do not need to send your passport -- photocopies will do. Once you submit your application online you'll be able to print a document with your info, photo, (new) residence permt expiry date. This doc states you have submitted your application and can freely leave and reenter Turkey within 15 days.
  5. KabaSakal, treeinstanbul: when making your application in the new system, was there a field for you to put your appointment number in the old system?
  6. thanks for this update, friends. I'll try mine again once I arrive home tonight. KabaSakal, the beauty of this community is that when we're in trouble, we're all in trouble together. When one of us rants, it's like all of us are ranting together.
  7. Same one? Applications for extension shall be made within sixty days prior to the expiration of the residence permit and, in any case, before the expiration of the residence permit.[106] Or "We are not able to locate a residence permit record with the information you've provided. Check the information you've entered and try again.[104]" ?
  8. UPDATE: I realize my mistake now -- within sixty days -- so that means I'd have to wait until I'm withing those 60 days. treeinstanbul, guess that is your case then? _____________________________________________________________________________________________ Ok, I'm getting a different error message now: Applications for extension shall be made within sixty days prior to the expiration of the residence permit and, in any case, before the expiration of the residence permit.[106] I have more than 60 days to go, so what the heck.
  9. rsdunya, are you trying to make a new application or renew an existing one?
  10. Yes, that does make me concerned too. I was hoping to finally get an application in the system and show up at the Migration Office with all the docs and show them my passport, but take it with me -- without an RP or passport we have no identification at all.
  11. Don't think so. Mine expires on July 27, which means I am not over those 60 days. Plus, I had an appointment in the old system. Did anybody manage to make an appointment so far?
  12. What if I just want to renew my short-term RP, which expires in July? The "Applications for Extension" doesn't seem to be working for me.
  13. What did you try, treeinstanbul? Renewing a RP or first application?
  14. I don't think it's that, because if you try to make a first application you can pretty much go through all screens. I'm guessing the old database is somehow still not connected to the new system thus our RPs cant be found. And then we get that message: "We are not able to locate a residence permit record with the information you've provided. Check the information you've entered and try again.[104]"
