  1. May i just add to this regarding obtaining an HES code,is that by far the easiest way is to use the text service,no smart phone required for this.. It's been discovered by one of my Surgery members who did get his H.E.S number, that the information on websites regarding application details for HES codes maybe incorrect for foreigners with an R.P. For foreigners with 99**** number [as opposed to TC's with their Kimlik number] it does NOT accept the last four digits of your Ikamet card serial number. But it does work if you use your year of birth instead. How To Obtain An H.E.S. Code with a phone via sms.... Go to your sms [messages], for recipient type in 2023. In the message box... Type in HES [in capitals]. One space. Put your full 99**** number. One space. Year of birth [not card serial no.]. One space. Total of days validity required. So for example...message .....HES 9901234678 1950 7 . Then tap your send button to receive the code within 30 seconds...[ i personally tried the above & it works ,the whole process completed within 4 minutes]
  2. Hi Alex,you cn import any age vehicle for either up to 2yrs or apply to keep it here permanently & putting it on Turkish foreigners'M' plates. To import for up to 2yrs & keep it on foreign plates ,you can enter on your 90 day visa exemption then when you have your RP go back to a border to extend the allowed time up to the expiry of your RP. If you wish to keep it here longer than the 2yrs and put it on Turkish 'M' plates then you must either be in receipt of a pension from your home country or have a Work Permit to work in Turkey. You will need to apply to Turk Touring to pay a financial bond ,be advised ,this might be as much as you paid for the car in your home country. [ The tax is calculated by the engine size and age of the vehicle]. To enquire about this you will need to email or phone Turk Turing to find this out [ Turkish only]. This will allow you to put the vehicle onto Turkish foreigners [M ] plates,tax ,MOT & insure it here, and allow you to sell within Turkey [ with restrictions] if required.
  3. Youngsters pick up another language much quicker than adults usually. Ask around locally regarding schools in your area,be it a state or international one. They'll probably wish to see their last school report from your home country at your interview with the head teacher.
  4. You've only got to look at any of today's Turkish papers,it's been mentioned in most of them.
  5. I bought a Turkish registered 2nd hand car on Jan 3rd this year in Mugla town. Translator fee 100tl [cash,no receipt given ...normal..lol] Noters fee 275tl New 'M' Plaka 75tl each. As far as i'm aware these fees are fixed nationwide.
  6. Question: What are the necessary documents in order to get temporary entrance carnet for foreign vehicles? Answer: Only foreign people can get this carnet. These people shall submit the following documents besides residence permit taken from Ministry of Interior (Turkish National Police): For those who are in Turkey for working; work permit certificate from the Ministry of Labor and Social Security [those who are blue card owners need to take a document from Social Security Institution (SGK) showing that premium is paid.] For those who are in Turkey for educational purposes; education certificate arranged by the school administration that the person is registered. For those who are retired; retirement document. ....... IF YOU WISH TO KEEP YOUR CAR HERE FOR MORE THAN 2YRS, you will also need to in receipt of a state pension or Turkish Work Permit, then you will need to apply to Turk Touring to pay a financial bond ,be advised ,this might be as much as you paid for the car in your home country. [ The tax is calculated by the engine size and age of the vehicle. To enquire about this you will need to email or phone Turk Turing to find this out [ Turkish only].Their www. link is below.] This will allow you to put the vehicle onto Turkish foreigners [M ] plates,but should allow you to sell within Turkey if required. http://www.turing.org.tr/ytggk-mavi-karne/ Turk Touring Club Izmir no. is 0232-421-7149.

  7. As things stand today there have been no concessions stated by the Turkish authorities to those abroad with RP's that will expire before flights to Turkey resume,so you may need to enter with your evisa or passport [ if visa exempt] & simply make a 1st application as opposed to renewal for your next Residence Permit.
  8. Olivia,if not married to a Turkish citizen then you need to either have held Residence Permits for a period of 5 full years or more uninterrupted or own property in your name here valued at the Kadestro for a minimum of $US 250,000. A full Work Permit again of 5yrs or more is another route,but you don't hold one To start any application for Turkish citizenship you first contact your local Nufus office for an appointment to collect the paper showing the documentation required in your province. Paperwork required will vary depending on your province.
  9. For anyone diagnosed with the virus ,treatment is free at all Devlet hospitals.
  10. True 157 have said this to one of my Surgery members ,but they too found the GOC office closed,as i say the last official notification from the GOC was to re open on the 6th April. For those applying in Istanbul the table below shows revised appointment dates.
  11. Ever since the online payment system was introduced it's barely worked 10% of the time. So the message is saying your payment cannot be found,so ignore this and before your interview go to your Tax office & pay the 2 fees. All GOC offices are currently closed till the 6th April. A text will be sent to you in the coming weeks of your interview date & time pre arranged for you.
  12. Fingerprints are free. With all the departments not having any face to face contact/interviews at present due to Covid 19 ,there's no saying when your interview may be now,as there's no indication when things will be getting back to normal.
  13. All GOC offices are closed until 6th April provisionally.
  14. Hundreds of foreigners are getting their renewals accepted daily . It all depends on the country of issue of your passport. If you look at my comment above,you'll see listed the countries accepted.
  15. Then i assume you had an evisa at the time of application for your RP. In which case you cannot enter with another evisa as you must abide by the 90/180 day law. You've already i assume been here 90 + days ,so would need to stay out for 90 days before returning. In your case you should return within the 15 days allowing for both exit & entry days to be counted as days out.
