So here's the deal,
I submitted my application for the short term tourist residence permit on 31/12/2018 at the pendik office here in istanbul. After the clerk took my application he gave me a "teblig tebellug belgesi" and said that my residence permit would be sent in the mail. Here is the problem. I am currently here on a 90 day e-visa which should expire on 14/01/2019. The permit should be sent to my current residence here in Pendik via the post but I am wondering how long it will take to arrive and if I have the right to stay in the country until my application is processed. If I cannot stay I will need to leave by the end of the week and my roommate would need to send me the permit when it arrives. However it would be much easier if I can stay in the country while I wait. Any help would be appreciated.
