  2. I am curious about this also. I presume no hospital will turn anyone away but what keeps them from assessing charges later? I have only found articles stating such as this: https://www.trtworld.com/turkey/coronavirus-treatment-in-turkey-is-free-35417 The first paragraph says "Turkish citizens who have contracted with Covid-19 will be treated free of charge." But then it goes on to say "As part of fight against coronavirus, all people in Turkey regardless of whether they have social security or not will be able to benefit from the equipment provided by the Health Ministry." B
  3. There is a myth that foreigners get "stuck" with higher payments than Turkish citizens. Ken is correct, enrollment in SGK bases payment on income, SGK has a web site, some of which is in English. I suggest you meet with an accountant who knows about taxes and other financial and income reporting obligations to determine what your SGK payments will be. Anyone who qualifies for a residence permit has to show income of 500 USD monthly which also puts them in the highest bracket for SGK payment. If you will be working in Turkey after citizenship, you should inquire about retirement and health ben
  4. Why not? You wanna be a citizen, that means certain rights but also certain obligations. Enjoy... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conscription_in_Turkey In Turkey, compulsory military service applies to all male citizens from twenty to forty-one years of age. Those who are engaged in higher education or vocational training programs prior to their military drafting are allowed to delay service until they have completed the programs or reach a certain age. The duration of the basic military service varies: for those without 4-year university degrees twelve months as privates; for those with
  5. A young man I know finished his "tour" last September. According to him it was relatively painless. Everyone he spent time with were "short-termers" and older than the average 18-year-old draftee. My friend was not enthused about going, nor participating in what was required of him, but he did not feel it was very difficult for him. He is an adventure tour guide and is in very good physical shape which helped him also. His description seemed like a mild version of my experience in the US Army basic training. They had rifle range one day, they learned how to march, wear the uniforms, and waited
  6. Meral do you have a source for or a link to that information please?
  7. WHATSAPP - comfortably the most popular chat app in the UK - has been enlisted by the UK Government to help in the battle against the novel coronavirus pandemic. https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/science-technology/1261424/WhatsApp-Update-Most-Important-Coronavirus The UK Government has enlisted the help of the world's most popular chat app, WhatsApp. The Facebook-owned messaging service now plays host to a brand-new chatbot designed to answer any questions, concerns or queries that you have about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic gripping the UK, Europe and the rest of the globe.

The ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) is preparing further measures on social network platforms under an omnibus bill that will come to the parliament’s agenda as part of the struggle against the novel
  9. Tez, Pleased to hear you are sorted out for now. Good luck with all that is going on in Turkey these days.
  10. Tez, I apologise as I may have given you only half of what you need to know: https://e-ikamet.goc.gov.tr/ is the correct address for initiating an online ikamet (residence permit) application. It seems to be working OK. For a current RP holder to make a change of address for a NEW province you will click on the button which states: "I apply for the extension of the duration of residence permit" (goes to next page) NEXT: Click on "I would like to lodge an application for renewal" (goes to next page) NEXT: (you will see the following) Application for the
  11. Tez, Since you are moving out of district you have to go make a new online application to the göç idaresı. NOTE: If you go to https://www.e-ikamet.com/ you will see that all appointment dates have been changed for starters as almost all government offices have been closed down. So do not sweat that you will be over the 20 business days you have for reporting a change of address. I also just now note that their entire website has changed and it is not obvious how to make an online application form. I suggest you call 157 again and ask them for the link to the new online application fo
  12. Some say Covid is not airborne. Uh, sort of... ever been in an elevator or a car or a crowded room when someone sneezed? Ever actually watch those droplets? They may not last very long in the air, but maybe long enough. Please wear a mask if you go out. Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases agrees: "Infectious diseases expert Dr. Anthony Fauci shares what makes COVID-19 so insidious, busts myths about the virus" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8A3jiM2FNR8 There are things we can all continue to do to slow down the spread or "flat
  13. Thanks Ken, we did find a place literally overlooking Kultur Park in Mimar Sinan Mah. It took us quite a while and looked at a lot of places before we found one we liked. Now if coronavirus does not upset our plans, we are scheduled to move on April 01.

If you are over 65 and do not want nor have SGK nor private health insurance then you can put "18 yaş altı veya 65 yaş üstü" (Under 18 or over 65) in the drop-down menu where it asks for Sağlık Sigortası Türü or Type of Health Insurance Ken wrote: I think, but I am not sure, that once he enters his birth date, the option to enter the insurance may be either optional, or not there at all. You do have to make an entry such as above.
  15. Dona, I went to the link: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/international-travel/while-abroad/criminal-record-checks.htmlIt says: "An individual requiring an apostille or authenticated copy of his/her FBI Identification Record, or any non-U.S. national or permanent resident who wishes to request his/her FBI Identification Record must submit a request directly to the FBI CJIS Division. The U.S. Department of State Authentications Office may then place an apostille document for use in a country that is party to the Hague Apostille Convention. For countries not party to the Hague
