  1. Those who apply for a Family RP are often foreign ladies married to a Turkish Citizen. In such cases it's normal for the GOC to want to see his wages slips for the past 6 months. If using savings only then they will expect to see that the required amount has been in their account for a while,again maybe 6 months & that they have enough to satisfy the FRP requirements which is around 25,000tl for each year the FRP will run,which can be up to 3 years if accepted. Health cover needs to be his SGK with you named on his cover.
  2. You were probably visited because the GOC officer failed to take a copy of your Taattaname & as you didn't have a rental contract with your name on it,the Polis were asked by Ankara clearing office to call to confirm you actually live where you stated you did on your application form. Info on obtaining a refund... https://yellali.com/advice/question/451/how-to-obtain-a-refund-for-your-residence-permit-tax-payment?fbclid=IwAR2nQZMZoL0GyiFDknqiHsbQW0cBT6d3bhoxpHnIkuxvHYXLRcC-SZmjpC4
  3. Star...go to their website & you can top up from there each 30 days using your bank card.
  4. I have had a Bimcell sim for over 5yrs...You go to any Bim shop with your Passport & Residence Permit + one photocopy of each .
  5. The Law changed in Jan 1st 2016 when our UK Ambassador met with the Turkish Authorities who changed the requirements for foreigners for the need to show a schooling certificate to obtain a Turkish driving licence. All TC's have to do this so they insisted foreigners do the same...This of course was going to prove to be a massive problem for many of the older expats as some left without exam certificates or since the 60's had mis laid them when moving to Turkey . After a day of negotiations an agreement was made that as long as the foreign licence holder obtained a fresh incoming stamp in their passport every 6 months,then they could continue to drive on their translated & noterised licence. as per Article 88- (Amended with title: RG-17/4 / 2015-29329) Go here, https://treaties.un.org/Pages/ViewDetailsIII.aspx?src=TREATY&mtdsg_no=XI-B-19&chapter=11&Temp=mtdsg3&clang=_en ….to find countries that are included in the Convention. If your country is NOT listed then it’s not possible to make a licence exchange.. The only way to obtain a Turkish driving licence is to take driving lessons & the test . USA is not part of this convention...so a licence exchange is not possible, American passport holders will need to take Turkish driving lessons & test to obtain a Turkish driving licence... Selim1984uk...no you can't keep your UK licence..it's sent back to the DVLA on issue of your Turkish licence. But if/when you re locate back to the UK you simply apply for it to be returned to you & you'll surrender your Turkish one to the DVLA. Against all the rumours in expat land,you can hire cars in the UK showing a Turkish licence.
  6. But of course it is,or i would have amended it....Just check for yourself on the 'Documents required' on the online RP application front page.
  7. Nour, BC's are not required providing they are with their parents or legal guardians. BUT the GOC officer is at liberty to ask for any extra documentation if he feels it's necessary.
  8. Hi Fada,i assume you are not a Turkish citizen,if so then the Family RP will only be valid until the expiry date of your Short term RP..So if yours doesn't have long to run,,with the extra paperwork involved it's not worth the trouble in applying for.
  9. Fada, you didn't get the temporary RP document/15 day travel letter because you application has not been officially accepted yet, it's been sent for a second verification. When you receive the text, hopefully it will state your application was evaluated positively [their wording not mine]. At that point you can go back and ask for the letter until your card arrives. This appears to be a quirk of the Istanbul GOC only.
  10. MOVING TO A NEW PROVINCE.. A new RP application is required [just the paperwork ] within 20 days of moving ,but all you pay for is a new RP card..Simply apply in person with all your normal/previous RP application paperwork + new Tapu or rental agreement & at your new local GOC office & they will make out the paperwork.
  11. Hi Liz,yes you can. The property or land must have a genuine value of a minimum of 250,000 US$.
  12. Fada,with you application number written along the top,the letter basically states that you've submitted your documents & paid the fees and you'll be informed of the outcome within 90 days. This will be from the date stamp on that paper. It allows you to stay here legally but is not a letter allowing you to travel out of Turkey without paying an overstay fine on exit. Only the full 'temporary residence paper/15 day travel letter does that.
  13. It may be easier to apply for a student visa from your country before departure from the Turkish Consulate in your country. I've just looked at the MFA website and they do list such a visa. 3- STUDENT – EDUCATION VISA a) Internship Visa b) Internship ERASMUS c) Internship AISEC d) Turkish Language Course Purpose
  14. Simon,instead of applying here for a Work Permit,you can leave Turkey & apply for a Work Visa from your home country via the Turkish Consulate/Embassy there. This is a passport sticky visa which allows a single entry [altho' not needed in your case] and permission to start working for your employer immediately upon arrival to Turkey, with your Work Permit card usually arriving within a few weeks.
  15. KeeZouX... If just importing for up to 2 yrs, on your RP there's no tax to pay. if you're intending to keep the car here semi permanently & put if on Yabanci 'M' plates then you can find out the financial bond figure from Turk Touring Club. http://www.turing.org.tr/ytggk-mavi-karne/ Turk Touring Club Izmir no. is 0232-421-7149. Link to enquire the tax 'bond' element... https://www.hesapkurdu.com/trafik-sigortasi/h/arac-otv-kdv-hesaplama
