  1. My apologies. When I saw "new passport" I assumed there was an old passport. I have corrected my reply above. It sounds to me now that there's no record of the passport number in the system, and the message you received is a default message, which doesn't actually apply to your situation. You should call the foreigner information center at 157 first. I think they'll tell you to take the child's passport to the immigration office to have it entered into the system. Deeva, would you please update this topic with what you learn regarding this? I do a lot of reading and research on
  2. You should go to the immigration office and give them the passport information. Take the passport with a regular copy (non-notarized). Thanks for the positive feedback. It's nice to know this website helps people.
  3. Wow, that's different from what I was told. There must have been a change in February that I didn't know about. Thank you for looking into that and posting the results.
  4. Wow. That was a lot of work. But I'm glad you got it fixed. As I understand it, the immigration office uses the same system as the Nüfus. But the rules say that you have to report your change of address to the immigration office. I don't think it's clear in this situation. So I think to be safe, you should go to the immigration office and report it. One question: Were you able to make an appointment, as a foreigner, on the Nüfus appointment website?
  5. If they don't give you the Residence Permit Application Document(the Müracaat Belgesi), normally you can call the Foreigners Communication Center at 157, and ask them for the e-mail address of the office where you applied. Then you send them an e-mail explaining your situation and asking for a Residence Permit Registration Document for travel. They say it can take one or two weeks, but I've seen people get it in a few days. So try that first. Each office has its own e-mail address so you'll need to learn where to send the request. That document gives up to 15 days of travel and re-entry withou
  6. The articles have since been published. They're here: Turkish Citizenship and Military Service Turkish Citizenship by Birth Thanks for letting me know about the Word Document. I'll make a change to the post above.
  7. It seems to me you should contact a tax professional in your home country about this. I'd like to help, but I'm not a qualified tax accountant, and I don't know the tax laws in your country or what agreements they might have with Turkey.
  8. Whether you have to pay taxes in Turkey or not depends on where your "tax home" is. Turkey has tax treaties with many countries which say how much time you have to be in Turkey for it to become your tax home. The treaty will also say what is taxable in your home country and what is taxable in Turkey. Do a Google search for the tax treaty between Turkey and your home country. That will tell you the period of time you need to be in Turkey before it becomes your tax home, and what you'll owe taxes for in either or both countries. Consult with a tax professional. Yesterday I read the tax
  9. Were you able to get your residence permit card from the immigration office?
  10. You're question seems to be about Polish law, and I know nothing about that. Are you saying that you need to get a copy of your Turkish marriage certificate in Turkey, then have it legalized for use in Poland? This article might help:
  11. We had a member previously who had a similar problem. It looks like, according to the population records, the previous occupant didn't report their change of address. So they're still listed as living in the place you moved to. You'll need to go to your local Nüfus ve Vatandaşlık İşleri Genel Müdürlüğü (Population and Citizenship Directorate). It is usually just called the Nüfus). The Nüfus has a website where you can make an appointment: https://randevu.nvi.gov.tr/ You can use the Google Chrome browser with the Google Translate application to read it in English. To learn h
  12. Wow. Another fast one! I had my appointment in Antalya on the 9th of February so I still have some time to wait. I'm extending after a lot of extensions. I was surprised to find out that there was no interview for me. When I went to the immigration office and to the information desk, they just went over my package, gave me a memorandum saying they'd received it and would process it, and that was all. That was the first time I went to an appointment and wasn't interviewed. But I think they're still doing interviews for first-time applications here.
  13. Just a few questions to help me answer your question: Are you saying that you've been living in Turkey for five years with a work permit? Are you married to a Turkish citizen? Do you own your residence or have some other way to demonstrate your intent to live in Turkey?
  14. We had a member previously who lost their residence permit in the U.K. When they re-entered, the border control officer could see that they had a valid residence permit, so there was no problem, and no visa. It's probably a good idea to have that printout with you just in case. But you should be able to enter without a visa because your residence permit has been approved and you have a foreigner ID number.
  15. In short, she's okay because her residence permit has been approved. We had another Turkey Central member who lost their residence permit card while outside of Turkey, and when they came back and went through border control, the border control officer could see on their computer that he had a residence permit. Which would be your same situation. They'll be able to look on their computer and see that she has a residence permit. And she'll be able to walk right in. In any case, there will be no penalty.
