  1. you must wait and see the expiration date on the card. Usually if the first application is for turistic reasons only 1 year is given but who know ...
  2. yes probably they gave you the permit for the nationality you look like, not the nationality you are from eh eh
  3. what is your nationality? According to latest infos only property owners will get two years residency on first application. . Non Property owners, Europeans and Canada and USA will get 1 year for first applications, renewals can be 2 years. . Non Property owners from, Middle East and Asian countries will get 6 months residence for first applications and renewals will be maximum 1 year.
  4. in the middle of September, the interior minister came to Istanbul and meet with local immigration office and after that meeting the procedure for obtaining residence permit in Istanbul came back to normality. If you applied before 15 September 2018 you was asked for a lot of additional documents (like health and criminal record) and touristic residence permit was sometimes limited to 5 months. Those who applied after 15 September 2018 got a full 1 year and no additional documents was requested. So, i suppose you applied before 15 September 2018. Next time you'll get a full 1 year.
  5. don't worry, they don't ask for it anymore. also the criminal report is not necessary anymore.
  6. You must apply once you are in Turkey. Your visa can even expire the day after you applied from the immigration office web site, you can stay in Turkey with an expired visa while you are waiting for your request to be approved. For the bank statement I don't know for sure, but I have friends they presented financial documents from their original countries and that was accepted.
  7. Things are changed in Istanbul. Now you can have an appointment within 1 month and the residence permit within another month. So if you apply from the web site tomorrow you will receive the residence permit on 9 december or early
  8. Today I received a message from immigration office, my residence permit request has been evaluated positively. I had my interview in Istanbul Pendik on 29 august and I applied and payed for 2 years. I wait for the card to come to know how many months or years they gave me.
  9. it's 2 days they do not ask anymore health and criminal report. that stress is finished
  10. I have some unofficial news. It seems in Istanbul immigration office does not require anymore 6 months bank statement, health report and criminal report. 3 sources have already confirmed this. IF it's true it's certainly a good news because will be much more easy to get the residence permit in Istanbul. Wait few more days and let's see if and what changed
  11. I'm sorry for you, i can understand your frustration. Enjoy your day in Georgia, and come back with new ideas to win the residence permit battle!
  12. they say mimimum 150.000 tl ( me i purchased at 190.000 tl) i applied for the residence permit on 29 august and of course im waiting, i dont know if and when ill get the permit
  13. Me i just purchased a flat in Istanbul but i regret because i was thinking to get 2 years residence permit and they state i will have only 1 year (Although a friend of mine got 2 years). Also at interview they treat people very rude and i really dislike it and i'm not sure i'll get every year a residence permit in Istanbul. My advice is to purchase outside Istanbul, the application for residence permit is faster and easer outside Istanbul
  14. Yes he has property, he's french, and he get 2 years in Istanbul Fatih, me too i have proprerty, i applied in Pendik and the officer told me property owners can get only 1 year. I think they say and they do things randomly. There are no rules ..so let's see what will happen to my application.
  15. I agree 100%, it seems strangers are no more welcome in Istanbul but we are helping this economy changing our money in turkish lira and spending it
  16. To me they told the opposite, Beylikduzu immigration office told me to enter only the first policy in the application form and the officer told me that is reason for reject if I enter the second. This is a real nightmare.
  17. Me too i applied for 2 years with 2 policy (1 for each year). However the form on the website only allow to enter one policy so i entered the policy of the first year and I brought the 2 policy together at my appointment at immigration office in Pendik. The officer immediately told me we give only 1 year, anyway me i added also the 2nd policy with all the documents in the hope that reviewing my case they will give 2 years. I wonder how did you entered 2 years in the application form? I attach a pic of how i entered my first policy. (an officer told me that when having 2 policies only the first must be entered)
  18. Hi Yabangee, i suppose you supplied a correct health insurance. is it so? the start / end date of you permit application should match the start/ end date of your health insurance, did you checked this?
  19. once your permit extension is rejected you have 10 days to leave the country or apply for a different permit , for exemple from tourism to property owner ... i don't know if the same is possible from tourism to student
  20. safe place i mean your home country or another trusted country, do not take high amount of money in Turkey, this is only my advice of course
  21. enjoy the country but keep your money away in a safe place ... this is my advice
  22. hello, after apply for my residence permit extension i remarked a difference between turkish and english in the documents required by the directorate: 2 . Pasaport veya yerine geçen belgenin aslı ve fotokopisi <--- here they ask for a simple passport photocopy 2 . Notary public approved photocopy of passport <---- while here they ask for notary approvation How do you proceed? do you go for notary approvation of the passaport? Also the house rent contract is not in the list but i know they require it. Is this right?
  23. thank you for your replies, infact i was able to complete the procedure in turkish but it's really unprofessional to have a non functional english web site, it would be better to remove the english version as it's complete useless
