  6. The following notice has been serviced:- UKinTurkey We are aware of recent scams that involve tricking people into believing they are helping friends and family members who have found themselves in difficult circumstances and financial hardship while travelling abroad. There are different methods scam artists use. One of the most common scenarios is a hacked email/social networking scam, in which a hacker sends an email or personal message from a person's email or social media account requesting payment to return home, pay outstanding debts, visa fines and similar. If you receive such a message, first of all try to verify the whereabouts and well being of the individual concerned by contacting them directly on their known email address/account or telephone number. Do not use any contact details given in the message. If you cannot establish contact with the individual or have any concerns then please contact FCO consular assistance team on 020 7008 1500 (24 hours) or nearest British Consulate in Turkey (https://www.gov.uk/…/…/organisations/british-embassy-ankara…) before taking any other action. Consular teams can provide assistance in case of emergency overseas. Visit “Action Fraud “ ( www.actionfraud.police.uk ) website to report suspicious correspondence, support and prevention. Beğen ·

  8. I dont see why it should not be possible.
  9. UKinTurkey Consular officials represented the British Embassy at a meeting organised by the Directorate General of Migration Management (DGMM) in Ankara on 9 February. The purpose of the meeting was to showcase the work of the DGMM and to inform those foreign diplomatic missions with a high number of residence permit applications of updates to the implementation and procedures of the new Law on Foreigners and International Protection (6458). There were speeches by the Director General Atilla Toros and Director of Foreigners Department Aydogan Asar covering the formation of the directorate, its purpose and aims. Mr Asar also covered many of the relevant points of the Law 6458 relating to residence permit applications. Updates Latest updates from the DGMM relate to residence permit applications and form part of the new application form and documents required lists which can be found in English on http://goc.gov.tr/…/documents-required-for-residence-permit… . It is important that you read the ‘Points to take into consideration for the application of residence permit ‘document in conjunction with the lists on this link. Changes include the need for biometric photographs and we were advised that the completion of the declaration on the new form regarding ‘Notification regarding sufficient and sustainable resources for the duration of their stay’ should be sufficient without the need to show supporting evidence of savings or income for a short term residence permit. Please do bear in mind though that the information also says that ‘Management may ask for supportive document’, so be prepared to continue to provide bank statements and the like if asked. DGMM offices The DGMM announced that next month they intend to have their provincial offices open in all 81 provinces in the country staffed by DGMM personnel who will be responsible for accepting and evaluating applications for foreign nationals. This should mean that issuing of residence permits will be done much quicker than now, the DGMM understand the reasons why a swift decision is important and their aim is for a turn round time of 5 days. They are developing their IT systems and hope to have residence permit applications online in the future and are working on a call centre which will provide a 24 hour information service. At the same time they are in the process of establishing their offices in Turkish consulates overseas which will be set up to take first time applications either later this year or early next year. Also new residence permit cards will start to be issued with photographs very soon. Questions raised As part of a question and answer session we raised a series of questions regarding the 120 day rule (Article 33) and its impact on various aspects of life in Turkey for British national residents (collated from your feedback and comments) most of which were not answered at the meeting-we were told to put these questions in writing again and we will let you know as soon as we receive any further information. When pressed, the Director General did say that the DGMM are considering ways of making things easier in light of these difficulties. 1. We were advised that the 120 day rule does not apply to first time applicants i.e. any period of time spent outside Turkey before applying for a residence permit is not counted. 2. For any foreign national who intends to stay out of Turkey over the 120 day period but wished to stay in Turkey longer than the 90 days allowed by a tourist visa is recommended to cover their stay by an e-Visa and a few months short term residence permit as necessary to meet their needs. 3. Foreign nationals arriving in Turkey after already staying 90 days within 180 days may be allowed to enter into the country if there is not any other obstacle to their entry and if they pledge to apply to the Foreigners Department in the province where they will stay within 10 days to obtain a residence permit as of the date of entry. 4.On criminal record checks required for the supporter in family residence permits and individuals in long term permits; if the checks are required to be provided by the foreign national’s country own authorities then they need to be submitted to the DGMM within 1 month of the application being made otherwise the application will be cancelled. To get a copy of criminal records from the UK please refer tohttp://www.acro.police.uk/subject_access.aspx 5. Any foreigner staying in Turkey on an e-Visa can be issued with a Foreigners identity Number on request without having to obtain a residence permit. The DGMM would like to encourage use of their website www.goc.gov.tr. And in particular their FAQs page which can be found here http://www.goc.gov.tr/…/frequently-asked-questions-about-fo… Please note if any of these links do not work try to copy and paste them into a different browser or go to the main website homepage and click on the English language version and search for the relevant topic.

  14. For any foreign will, you should firstly get it translated and notary approved, then appoint a lawyer to present to the court, then comes the waiting time for the judge to accept or reject the will but most likely it will be rejected as it is not prepared as per the Turkish Inheritance law. If you have a property in Turkey to make life easier get a Turkish Will done. This will make life much more easier for your inheritors.
