  1. PPW, no private health policy providers or the state SGK will cover for any condition that can be classed as pre existing or chronic health conditions.
  2. Hi Nur,if he's been here for the full 90 days as a tourist,he must be out of Turkey prior to the 90th day & stay out for 90 days before returning.. Hence why it's known as 90/180....90 days allowance in every 180 days .
  3. Sadly GDB thats not possible anymore. For those country that are party to the convention for licence exchange you start at your local Nufus office & have to have a noterised copy of your foreign licence sent back to the country of issue to confirm it is still valid & not revoked,then go through the paperwork,health checks & payment of required taxes prior to the new Turkish driving licence issued. For those with UK licences it takes on average 5 months to hear back from the DVLA,after that its as long as you take to finish the job of tests & payments, as above.
  4. Gentlemen, if your foreign licence is issued from a country which is part of the convention,then it is as it states ,a licence exchange. If the country of issue is not a member of the convention,then you must tke lessons & driving test to obtain a Turkish licence & in this case you keep your foreign licence. The link below shows the countries that are part of the convention & as you'll see the UK are but USA not. https://treaties.un.org/Pages/ViewDetailsIII.aspx?src=TREATY&mtdsg_no=XI-B-19&chapter=11&Temp=mtdsg3&clang=_en
  5. Hi,no private health policy providers or the state SGK will cover for pre existing or chronic health conditions.
  6. Both of you can only bring one car in without payment for a maximum of two years. According to the Gumruk website on this topic ... I am dual citizen. Can I bring my vehicle within the scope of private use? Answer: Within the scope of private use the nationality does not matter, being a resident abroad is enough . This is for a maximum of two years only. The page goes on to state that if you as TC's wanted to keep it here longer & register with Turk Touring & put them on Turkish plates which foreigners can do [ with restrictions] I am dual citizen. Can I bring my vehicle within temporary entrance carnet for foreign vehicles? Answer: No. According to General Customs Communiqué about the temporary importation of land vehicles (Serial Number: 1), dual citizens have no right to bring their vehicles within temporary entrance carnet for foreign vehicles.
  7. Hi Ken,i was always under the impression that a passport is needed to make an RP application. If you look at the picture in that link the info beside the passport info is in Red,therefore MUST be filled in. So baby is born & registered here,then a foreign passport for the newborn must be applied for & then Residence Permit application submitted all within 6 months of the birth.
  8. It will never come in 2 weeks, probably nearer 2 months for many from the interview stage to when the card is posted to you.
  9. If you hold a valid Student RP you can within 60 days of expiry make a 'transfer' application [not renewal or 1st application] for a Short Term RP if thats what you want.
  10. Ted,it was stated that it's being trialled on us as the take up would be a lot less than if introduced to TC's as well,so they could iron out any problems in the system , but supposedly it will be for all sales/purchases maybe later this year.
  11. NEW PROPERTY VALUATION LAWS ….. As of 01/01.2020 Those who want to buy/ sell a property where a foreigner is involved will now have private companies calculate the real market value of their property and 4% of the real value will be paid in tax on the resulting valuation/sale. The new application will start from 1st January 2020. In addition, the valuation of the property by the appraisal specialist will cost approximately 450 to 500 lira, which will be paid by the seller. Agents, or sellers, will first apply to a valuation company to learn the true value of their home. For this they will pay a certain amount, (approx 450-500 lira) to the valuation company. They will then present the document they receive from the valuation company to the land registry [property title deed office]. At present the deed administration will receive a total of 3% of the title deed, 2% from the buyer and 2% from the seller. No more under valuing a property for tax purposes. How much is my house worth? When getting a home value estimate, you should consider two main types of valuation: Fair market value: Fair market value encompasses what your home looks like to prospective buyers looking at other homes in the area. Consider the sale price of a home that’s similar to yours (same number of bedrooms and bathrooms, square footage or outdoor space, say). Be careful some real estate agents are offering lower prices so that they can earn extra. Appraised value: While the appraised value of your home factors in comps, it differs from fair market value. To calculate appraised value, a licensed appraiser considers the location, size and condition of your home, and any renovations you’ve completed. The appraised value is what mortgage lenders look at when a borrower buys a home or refinances their mortgage. …………………… Valuation reports hold the following information; – All title deeds details – Location of property on a map with coordinates – Photos of the property – Prices of equivalent properties – Confirmation of the price – Current debt condition of the property – Confirmed acceptance with the land registry and cadastre general directorate.
  12. You missed ticking a box on a screen at the beginning of the online application stating you're under18/over 65 therefore you will not be asked for the mandatory health cover for your RP application.
  13. I'm assuming also she didn't include a ”Letter of Living Permission” tahhutname) Residing in a property without a tapu (property title deed) or rental agreement signed by both parties & Notarized with her applications as her name wouldn't be on her friends rental agreement. Well there's nothing she can do now if the 2nd application is/has been refused as she is now way past the date she needs to exit Turkey as she's an overstayer . If as I suspect both applications have been rejected then she is now here illegally & must leave and pay the overstay fine due asap, to save her being given a ban on top of the fine.
  14. Hana,it's a national database,so a refusal in Izmir only days before another application in Istanbul will be flagged up. Also i'm assuming she has properties in her name in both cities.
  15. I can't answer that as there's no way of telling. She should speak with 157 again & ask what the application number is that has been rejected,then she'll know if it's her 1st or 2nd. Regardless i'd be surprised if the 2nd one isn't cancelled as Pendik will see immediately on the system that she made an application that was rejected only days before.
