    Can you be more specific and say exactly what information you need? Is this in Turkey or in Poland?

    The notary also makes an official public record of the document in Turkey. So whatever you have translated and notarized is also added to the Notary's official files. Once a foreign document is translated and notarized in Turkey, it is as official in Turkey as it is in the country it came from. So it can be used in Turkey.
    When you say "embassy inside Turkey" you must be referring to foreign government embassies, so about that I don't know. Each country probably has its own rules.

    You're question seems to be about Polish law, and I know nothing about that. 
    Are you saying that you need to get a copy of your Turkish marriage certificate in Turkey, then have it legalized for use in Poland?

    I'm going from the documentation and conversations I've had with the immigration office, so I can only tell you what they said. And I can't know what they might say if you come three months later. They should have your card, though. I don't know the PTT (post office) regulations for delivery. When they've delivered my card before I had to show identification and sign for it. But they've also left it with a neighbor before. So I don't know if their rules say they can leave it with somebody else or if they just don't always follow the rules.
    My bet is that they'll give it to your wife. After all, she'll be in your house and have identification showing that she's your wife. If they don't, the worst thing that could happen is that you have to go to the immigration office and get it when you get back.

    I don't know the rules of the PTT (post office), but I don't see why they wouldn't give it to your wife. When the PTT has delivered mine, once they gave it to a neighbor. I heard from another person they gave it to the complex security guard. Both signed for the delivery.
    If for some reason they don't give it to her, they'll keep it at the PTT office. After seven days they'll send it to the immigration office, and you can get it from there.

    Star reacted to Ken Grubb in How Can I Get a Loan to Buy Property in Turkey, and What is the Sales Commission?   
    It's because banks are in the money loaning business, not the debt collection business. If a borrower doesn't repay the loan, they have to take various legal actions, get the property, and sell it on the market, often at a loss of money. So the banks want to make sure the borrower has a good record of paying their debts.

    Hi, 
    Yes that is very common way of buying a property not only in Turkey but also almost all other Western Countries. Also, called, mortgage loan. However, for a Non-Turkish person who does not have any financial credit score in Turkey, that is very unlikely that loan application is to be accepted by a Turkish bank. Sometimes, you could prove your good credit score to a Turkish bank, through your local bank in your home country which has a partnership agreement with Turkish bank in terms of securities.
    Should you refer to commission for real estate brokers, it mostly depends on your negotiation but if standart rate applies it is %2 for buyer and %2 for seller. Should you asked about the property transfer tax, same rate applies as %2 for buyer %2 and %2 for seller. As the latter is a state tax, it is not negotiable.  
    (%2 means, %2 of the official purchase price.)

    You need to ask student resources what you need. Not the notary. It is they who are asking for this document, so you need to find out what exactly they need first.

    Star reacted to Ken Grubb in How to Change from a Turkey Student Residence Permit to a Touristic Residence Permit   
    What I meant was if you don't go to your appointment. If you don't go to your appointment they'll cancel your application.
    Since you still have time on your visa exemption, you can leave Turkey and return. You don't need any travel documents because you have a visa exemption. Your time outside of Turkey doesn't count towards the 90 days, because the 90 days are days in Turkey. When you're not in Turkey, that time stops.
    So if you have been in Turkey for 57 days on your visa exemption, you have 33 more days you can be in Turkey.
    When you leave Turkey, it doesn't matter how much time you're outside of Turkey. When you return you'll still have 33 more days you can stay in Turkey on your visa exemption.
    The only time it would matter is if your visa expires. I'm not talking about when you reach the number of days your visa allows you to be in Turkey, I'm talking about when it reaches its expiration date, which is 180 days after it became active.

    Are they asking for a vekaletname (power of attorney)? That's probably what you need. You should be able to take a copy of the other person's ID card or passport and tell the notary that you want to give the other person power of attorney to receive your diploma. Also take the other person's address information. If they have a Turkish ID card or residence permit, take a copy of that so the notary can put their foreigner identification number on the power of attorney.
    Then take the copy of the power or attorney to the student resources office, and make sure the person you want to receive your diploma also has a copy of the power of attorney since the deliver person may want to see it.

    Star reacted to Ken Grubb in New zealand university wants me to certify my documents. The embasssy is closed what should I do?   
    The way I'm reading this, it sounds like information they give to all students, local or international. I think for the first three they're talking about government officials in New Zealand. Then for international students, the apostille.
    You would get the apostille for documents issued in Turkey. From a kaymakamlık or valilik.
    Passports don't normally require apostilles. So they may be talking about giving them a notarized copy, but you would get that in New Zealand.
    I think it would be best that you contact the school you're going to and clarify what you need with them.

    So you would get the apostille at the kaymakam (district governorship) or the valilik (provincial governorship). You don't need an apostille for a passport. But you'll probably need a certified translation of it since I believe Iranian passports don't use the western alphabet.

    Yes, you get it. When I transfer money I either get it the next day or the day after that, depending on what time they do the transfer. I would assume Transferwise works the same way.

    Transferwise is highly recommended in the forums and other websites I visit. There's a fee for the sender. Some banks also charge a small fee for receiving the money. I bank with Yapıkredi and I think they charge like ten lira.
    You can contact your bank to see how much they would charge. Sometimes they have a fixed rate, sometimes they charge a fixed amount. You can also check Transferwise to see how much they charge, just go to their website.

    You should check with the airline you're flying with. Their website may tell you. You don't need to be enrolled in SGK to use a state or private hospital. You just have to pay the bill yourself. And check with the hospital for their prices.

    If you have a visa exemption as a citizen of a country with which Turkey has such an agreement, then you can leave Turkey and return without having to buy a visa. Even if you weren't, and arrived back in Turkey without an e-visa, you can get a sticker visa at the airport on arrival.
    They don't cancel your application if you leave the country. They only cancel it if you don't show up at your appointment. I verified this, in person, talking with an immigration officer at the immigration office.
    You must also make sure that you get your documents to the immigration office. This is especially important, because if you fail to get the documents to them, they reject your application. Let me emphasize that. It's not a cancellation, it's a rejection. With a cancellation, you can reapply. With a rejection, you have to wait six months to apply again for the same type of residence permit.
    In any case, if I were you, I'd call the helpline at 157 and make sure nothing has changed, and so you can hear it from an immigration specialist.

    Nothing will happen if you leave Turkey. People who have residence permits which expire and leave Turkey can return the next day with a visa. But you say you have a visa exemption. Is the visa exemption because of your nationality or because you are a recently-graduated student?

    Actually your student residence permit expired on your graduation date. Then you had ten days to leave Turkey or apply for a residence permit. I guess you were lucky!
    To return to Turkey, you just have to apply for and receive an e-visa. You can do that at https://www.evisa.gov.tr/.
    You passport must be valid for at least 60 days beyond your last day of stay in Turkey.
    Sorry for the delay on my reply, I just noticed that your question hadn't been answered.
