My residence permit was due for renewal in July. However, I have a work permit card upto December and thought that this would suffice as an RP. My job finished in August and the school would then have had to cancel the work permit. I recently tried to renew my RP and was told by an official in Izmir that I can't renew it. She said I should leave the country and upon returning get an e visa and then apply for the first time.
Does anyone have any suggestions or know of someone who was in a similar situation?
