  1. hello , 

    I have a problem with my card in the printing stage, the application is accepted and I turned in the missing documents. how long will take to receive my physical card, as I have to travel to my home country and my visa has expired ( I applied to get the residence permit at the start of October)? 


    1. REDDERS


      It can be anything up to 90 days between interview date and receiving your card. Was tis application a renewal or 1st time application.? If a renewal you can exit showing your  İkamet İzni Müracaat Belgesi (Residence Permit Application Document) ,[proof of application ,allowing15 days travel] & if out longer ,return with an evisa .

  2. Evening Ken,your last couple of paragraphs are spot on. My reason for what i stated earlier was ,a close friend of mine rented a ground floor area,which was to all intents & purposes a 'studio apartment.' She thought no more until her visa time was expiring & made her 1st RP application. When at her interview & the GOC officer accepted her noterised rental agreement he then looked at her landlords Tapu to notice it was listed there as a commercial area,ie an office. At this point he stated that he couldn't proceed with her RP application until the owner got a 'change of use' on
  3. No Usama,i didn't forget,but there was no need to state that to answer your question. Like Ken here who owns this site,i too have my own site and files website and am well versed in RP's & WP application requirements. WP's are not only applied for by prospective employers,it is possible to make your own WP application ,for example for self employment but only after holding continuous RP's for 5 years.
  4. Hi Usama,just mentioning commercial property would be the quickest way of getting an immediate refusal of an RP as the officer would naturally think you're working or thinking of working and for that you need a Work Permit. Also the address & property you give in your RP application must be a habitable one [house or apartment] not commercial.
  5. Spot on Ken. My thoughts are that i have never known RP start dates to be 'backdated',so if there was an overstay and the fine paid without exiting Turkey,i was under the assumption that the start date of the next RP now being a 1st application,which that in itself would be no problem,would be from when the RP application was submitted. Maybe Jamie could confirm if the start date given was the same date as the old RP expired or the date he submitted his next application ,then we'd know if there would be a problem or not for a LTRP acceptance.
  6. HiJamie ,it's a requirement that you have a minimum of 6 months validity of your Short Term RP when making your LTRP application,so that you don't have the need to make another STRP application while your LTRP is being processed & cause confusion to the GOC ,so this may be a stumbling block for you. Also you may need to be in Turkey during the application as sometimes you have a Polis visit with no notice given . Also are you 100% sure that after that overstay & fine payment that you were given a renewal & it wasn't classed as a 1st application. I've never heard of anyone after
  7. Might have been more helpful seeing as you're advertising on a Turkish expats group,if your company was based in Turkey. Just sayin'..
  8. Hi Ninna,absolutely no one can drive it while you are out of Turkey. Also this from Turkish Gumruk website. Question: Who else can use the vehicle that I have brought to Turkey within the scope of private use? Answer: The vehicles imported temporarily within the scope of private use can be used by the vehicle owner’s spouse or lineal ancestors and descendants who are 'resident abroad'. In addition, besides these people, third parties can also use the vehicle provided that the owners of the vehicle are present in the vehicle during travel. Otherwise, criminal action is applied
  9. But last week no one knew the dates of the impending lockdown in the UK..Good luck.
  10. This is where you apply from https://www.gov.uk/get-document-legalised This below may still apply....from the FCO earlier this year. Bear in mind there is now to be another 1 month lockdown too.. MESSAGE FROM FCO Unfortunately at present the legalisation service is still suspended. Whilst we are reviewing this daily, the impacts of Covid-19 have meant that our staffing levels are not currently in a position to allow us to operate the service and continue receiving documents. We are doing our utmost to process the documents we have left in our office, and have created an urgen
  11. .If you come from a country which has bilateral health insurance agreements you can use health insurance from your home country. here is a list of countries that have this agreement (and the corresponding name of the form you can ask for at your health insurance). If your country is not listed below ,then no other foreign policy will be accepted for an RP application. Germany – A/T 11, A/T 12, A/T 23 Austria – A/TR 3, A/TR3-A, TR/A6 The Netherlands – N/TUR 106, N/TUR 111, N/TUR 112 Belgium – BT.8, BT.10 France – SE 208-01; 02; 04; 17; 19; 28; 30 FT, SE 208-05; 18 TF, SE 208-06 A
  12. Hi KenM ,then you cannot re enter after the 15 days with another tourist evisa or visa exemption without being out of Turkey for a minimum of 90 days. Your only other option if the Passport/Immigration Polis on your return will allow is for you to ask for the Sartli Giris letter,which both you and they sign,where you can enter within the 90 days on the proviso that you make an RP application within 10 days. So as you'll already have an application in progress you'd be covered. If you've already had your interview and you're holding the İKAMET İZNİ BAŞVURU BELGESİ ÖRNEĞİ paper you should be o
  13. KenM, was this RP application a renewal or 1st application from previously holding an evisa?
  14. I too am in the process of applying,but this list from my files website from last year that a Surgery member sent to me..so you can use it for now as guidance. A GUIDE TO WHAT DOCUMENTS MAY BE REQUIRED FOR AN APPLICATION.: [ This WILL differ ,province to province] The list below is from when applications were made via the Trafic Polis, now it’s to the Nufus,so until the process & documents required can be confirmed, the list below should only be used as a rough guide. As of 3rd Jan 2020 please ad 23.73% to the fees shown below. 1 Photocopy of RP car
  15. Nothing has changed at all. First you need to go to your local Nufus office with a translated / notarised copy of your foreign licence to get started,assuming the country that issued your licence has an agreement with Turkey. 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 tes
