  1. I'm going to ask Mr. Ender Keleş, our community lawyer, to comment on this. You should consult with him to be sure, after all, this will impact your life a lot! As I understand it, that law applies to citizens who are naturalized, people without Turkish parents who apply to become citizens. As the son of a Turkish parent, you are deemed to be a Turkish citizen from the day you were born.
  2. @Emilio For the first shot, I just chose a clinic near my home. I went early thinking there would be a long line. There was only one person there besides me. After he got his shot, I walked in and got mine. Very quick and easy, and probably 30 minutes before my appointment time. For the second shot, there was a line. Maybe ten people. Then because I got the Sinovac as my first shot, I had to wait for somebody to come give it to me. The wait was maybe 30 minutes.
  3. According to the interviews I've had with various immigration specialists, they have a lot of discretion when it comes to whether a foreigner gets a residence permit or not, and for how long a foreigner will get it for. Sometimes they ask for financial proof and sometimes they don't. Personally, I've been getting residence permits here in Antalya for almost ten years (I am finally applying for my long-term residence permit) and every time I go to the interview they ask me for copies of my bank statements for the last six months. If I might recommend, check out Tömer for Turkish langu
  4. I just saw on a Facebook group that people ages 40-45 are now eligible for vaccinations. I haven't verified this, but perhaps you can try again.
  5. Speaking Turkish is not a requirement for a residence permit, but I have had an immigration specialist who asked me why I wasn't speaking Turkish after living here all of these years. I began speaking in Turkish, but explained that his Turkish was a lot better than my English, and gave him a choice of which language to use. He chose English. There's no way I can ever predict what an immigration specialist will say or do, of course. But it seems to me that if you apply for a residence permit to learn Turkish it would increase your chances of getting a longer duration on your residence perm
  6. If you're working only online, and not doing business directly with Turks or Turkish companies and not being paid for work by them, you don't need a work permit. I verified this with the Ministry of Family, Labor, and Social Services. There are other sites you can use. See this article for links to property websites at the bottom: You can get a health insurance policy from Mertsel Insurance. They do residence permit applications and also issue health insurance policies for Turkey Central members and guests. They are based in Antalya, but they can create your policy and send it to yo
  7. It won't cause any problem. You can apply at any time within 60 days of the expiration of your visa or the day you reach the maximum number of days your visa allows you to be in Turkey. If you own property, you wouldn't be applying under the "touristic reason" category. Renters apply under that category. Being a property owner won't cause additional scrutiny per se, you just need to take your property title deed and a regular (non-notarized) copy of it to your appointment and an "e-signed/signed and stamped/sealed 'Residence Document' to be obtained from provincial/district directora
  8. The only thing I could suggest is searching for and contacting a company that does international moves from Turkey and see if one of them is authorized to transport live animals.
  9. This is what you need: I see here the actual document is called a tapu kayıt örneği. This is what you need. It's your title deed record at the tapu office which will show that you are still the owner of the property. I must have called the document a tapu devam belgesi after reading something on the internet which called it that. Thanks for catching that mistake. I'll go through and correct the terms used to all be tapu kayıt örneği.
  10. I think the other document you needed was the address numbering document called the "numerataj belgesi." I read that you could get that also at the tapu office on an official Turkish government website but I haven't been able to verify it through member feedback. If you have any problems or if you're able to get both at the tapu office, would you please update this topic? I normally consider something as verified if I read it from an official source, then hear it from a government official, then have it verified by someone who actually does it. Thanks for the positive feedback. I remember
  11. Can you be more specific and say exactly what information you need? Is this in Turkey or in Poland?
  12. We've got a "Documents, Forms & Numbers" article section which explains the document you'll need and how to get it, here: Tapu Kaydı Örneği That should take you right to it, if it doesn't, click on the table of contents on "Other Address Documents the Immigration Office Might Ask For." It will tell you where and how to get the document. If you're having issues with the online system, switch it to Turkish while on the page where you're having the problem, and submit your info. For some reason the system has problems sometimes with its English-language pages. I had a similar p
  13. I don't see why it would be illegal. It wouldn't be in Turkey. Any specific concerns you have?
  14. I did write that in my reply previously, but I edited it a bit later. When you receive a reply in the forums, the system sends out a courtesy e-mail to let you know, that way you don't have to keep coming back to check for a reply. The e-mail also includes the reply (and a link to return to the topic). If the person replying (me in this case) later edits the reply, the system doesn't send another e-mail, so the reply you see when you return will be the edited version rather than the original version. I edited it because I checked your original post again and saw that you had a foreig
  15. Did you try your foreigner identification number and do you have a password for e-Devlet? If you don't mind me asking, are you trying to access it for proof of address? There are other ways to do that if you can't get in to e-Devlet.
