  1. Hi Ken, thank you so much for the reply and congrats on your successful renewal. I can't see a reason either of why the disparity between the applications we submitted. In any case it is not that much of a big deal as we can renew it again when we have the tapu in place. We were seen by different agents, maybe one of them was having an off day or wanted to be too pc, who knows.... lol.... In any case just comes to show that it's all that even if you're prepared, it's still a box of surprises with bureaucrats. Thanks again for your advice and such prompt reply. All the best.
  2. Hi everyone, So my partner and I went to our interview today in Alanya and thought of sharing with you our experience, which comes to prove that it's a bit of a lottery, really. I'm british and my partner's Italian and we are going to purchase a home here in Alanya but had not yet finalised the purchasing process yet. We have been here for almost 70 days within our 90 days allowed so we were anxious to get this done. We opened an account here and transferred money in anticipation of being asked of proof of income and ahead of our home purchase. As we are buying a place, we decided to rent an apartment first for a short period (4 months) while the tapu is hopefully ready. So armed with all the docs requested and documentation needed we headed to our appointment this morning. At the Alanya Immigration office, we were greeted by the receptionist that checked the docs and asked my Italian partner to go and pay an "extra fee" for being Italian at the tax office (another 527 lira we didn't know we needed to pay) and come back... I was asked to stay and go to the waiting room while my partner was out getting this done. We had booked the appointment together so was hoping it would be done together but nope.... I was taken to an agent that processed my request (1 year) with no issues. Did not ask for any supporting documentation even though i had it all with me. He was a rather pleasant chap. My partner, however, was taken to different agent the experience was the complete opposite. His agent was rispid, questioned his motives, history and all sorts of questions before giving him only 4 months because his rental contract was only for four months! (The contract started a month ago so basically 3 months from today). It comes to show that it's a bit of a lottery although its good to warn people about the rental contract "hiccup". Basically my partner will have to wait for the card to arrive only to re-apply for the extension as soon as he receives it, as we hopefully will have a tapu then. Has anyone else had this kind of experience? What if his card doesn't arrive before his permit lapse? When we have the tapu ready in both our names, is it a straight forward process to renew the permits? Thanks, guys.
  3. Thank you! It is indeed the first application i mean and not an extension. i guess it was a bit ambiguous. Great info and thanks again.
  4. Thank you very much, guys. It seems encouraging! we shall follow through and will let you know.
  5. Hi everyone, My partner and I have been in turkey now for almost two months within these last 90 days and intend to settle after a short trip to europe next week. I will then apply for our short term residence. Our intention is to buy a property here in Alanya, but will not have made the purchase before our official 90 day allowance expires. We'll obviously have to apply as tourist extensions since we don't have a Tapu yet but am wondering if in applying for a tourist visa and explaining to the immigration officer we are here to purchase a property could be a source of a headache at the interview rather than a just asking for simple tourist residence permit and not tell them these plans?... We already have all residence permit requirements ready to go but want it to be hassle free as much as possible. What do you guys think? Thank you.
