  1. No, there was no option for that in my renewal form. I posted earlier about paying part of the fee at the bank. I advise people against this. The tax office (for those in Kadikoy, the office is in Bostanci near the metro exit) is the best place to do it. I had to pay the fee again since the teller used the wrong code at the bank. Why the correct codes for payment weren't given on our print up is yet another oversight. I've collected everything necessary. It looks like we don't have to submit our older residence card with the application. Do others have this no longer listed as a required document for renewal or did they changed the wording yet again?
  2. I went to IsBank, they told me they could pay the 55TL fee for the permit but that I should try the same tax office I went to last year for the other fee since their system does not support payment in any currency other than TL and they had no item for it. They also mentioned that if for whatever reason these receipts were not accepted there was no way to get the money back. The documents do indeed ask for insurance for the whole duration, as I have only three weeks left on mine so I went to get the policy so I could complete my application. At this point I don't care if it ends earlier, because I can't go through this sh*t one more time.
  3. A few moments ago I managed to submit my online application for renewal (my residence permit expires on the 9th of June). As I reached and passed the final stage of the process I realized that they changed some of the wording. No longer do they ask for an original copy of the passport. After clicking on "I agree to pay blahblah " in a javascript window you a greeted with one more page listing all the support documents you need to include, but not providing any useful details about them, for that you are kindly requested to visit a link at the bottom of the page. Then you click the continue button and you finally reach the last page. On this page there are two links, which you cannot use "open in a new tab" for them to load correctly. Clicking on them will download the documents. The left link will download the filled in form which you need to send, the link on the right has that paper that serves as proof that you can continue to stay legally in Turkey. You can also leave with it and a copy of the necessary payment receipts, as long as your residence permit hasn't already expired. I guess now I need to figure out where to pay these fees. I wish they include some sort of page in Turkish I could show the correct official so they would know what I needed, I doubt guidance has been given to them anyways and I dread trying to navigate this maze with my minimal Turkish. I'll try to gather those receipts tomorrow and send everything in. Everything that is "might be requested" I'm sending anyways, so they don't have to bother contacting me again to waste even more money posting it to them.
