  1. In this article, I'll to teach you how to calculate the cost of your Turkey Residence permit processing fee as well as the other costs associated with becoming a resident of Turkey, including health insurance, notary expenses, biometric photos, and the fee you'll pay if you want to have someone else make your online application and get an immigration appointment for you. So how much does it cost to get a residence permit in Turkey? A Turkey residence permit costs on average $8.75 US dollars for the first month and $2.60 for each additional month of residence, with a second fee of ₺125 for
  2. When you apply for a residence permit in Turkey, you'll need to prove you have enough money to support yourself (and your family, if you have one), for the duration of the residence permit you're applying for. The money doesn't have to come from Turkey or be in a Turkish bank. It can be from any source, such as a salary, pension, rental income, investments, or you can use your savings in a bank account. How Much Money Do I Need to Get a Residence Permit? There isn't any set answer to that question, because it depends on your situation. The main reason the Göç İdaresi Genel Müdürl
  3. When you apply for a residence permit in Turkey, you must be covered by health insurance. You can use one of the low-cost "expat health insurance" policies many insurance companies sell, or buy a more expensive private insurance policy with greater coverage. After you've been living in Turkey for one year, you can join the Turkish government's comprehensive health insurance plan, called Genel Sağlık Sigortası (General Health Insurance) offered by the Sosyal Güvenlik Kurumu (Social Security Administration, also called SGK). Expat Health Insurance Cost Since the Turkish government manda
  4. Opening a Turkish Bank Account Opening an Account for Your Residence Permit There's kind of a "catch 22" regarding bank accounts and residence permits, since you may need to deposit money into a bank account to get your residence permit, and some banks will ask you for a residence permit before they can open a bank account. Or they will ask for a utility bill in your name. You should be able to open a bank account with only your passport and a tax number. If the bank you go to tells you you need a residence permit or utility bill in your name, you can ask them to verify it with a
  5. If you go to the bank to transfer money into someone's bank account, you can do so for free, as long as it is the same bank, and as long as that person's account is with the specific bank branch you happen to be in. But if their account is at another branch, it will cost you. To deposit 100 TL for someone at another branch, for example, it will cost you a 40 TL fee. And if you use a bank machine, or "bankamatik," it's free. Here's some useful information about how to do it using the touch-screen bank machines, obtained from İşbank. Kartsiz Para Yatırmak (Depositing Money With
  6. Most visa or residence permit overstays are minor issues, involving a foreigner forgetting when their visa expires or accidentally staying longer than their visa allows. Short overstays only involve a fine on departure. But longer overstays can include a re-entry ban of three months to a year. Very long overstays (for years) can incur a ban for up to five years. Typical Reasons for Overstaying Besides a validity period (the time from the date your visa was issued or activated to its expiration date), every visa also has a limit on the number of days it allows the visitor to be in Turk
  7. If your residence permit application is rejected, or you get less time than you applied for, you may be able to get a refund of some of the application fees. It depends on what kind of document the immigration specialist gives you at the end of your appointment. If You Received a Tebliğ Tebellüğü Belgesi (Official Communication Document) This document is an A-4 sized paper which simply says the Göç İdaresi Genel Müdürlüğü (Directorate General of Migration Management, or DGMM) has received your application and that they will process it. It also says your fees won't be refunded. Both yo
  8. Some transactions, such as opening your first bank account in Turkey, require a tax number. Having and providing a tax number doesn't necessarily mean that you will owe taxes in Turkey. But having one is essential for getting certain things done, such as opening a bank account to deposit money, to prove you can support yourself financially, when you apply for a residence permit. To get your tax number, go to any local vergi odası, or tax office. Tell them that you want a vergi numarası, or tax number. Give the clerk your passport. They will enter your information into a database, then giv
  9. If you've decided to live in Turkey and intend to apply for a residence permit, one of the first things you'll need is a vergi numarası (tax number). Having a tax number doesn't cause you to be liable for taxes. It's just a number to positively identify you whenever you make a financial transaction. What is a Tax Number? A tax number is a number used by the Turkish government to identify companies and individuals when they make financial transactions. Foreigners in Turkey may get a tax number by presenting their passport at their local İlçe Vergi Dairesi (District Tax Office). Yo
  10. You, your spouse, and your children can become Turkish citizens with a fast-track program for foreigners who invest in the Turkish economy. You can apply for this program whether you're in Turkey or not, and even have someone with power of attorney make the application for you. You don't have to speak Turkish. You'll need to have the usual documents for an application for citizenship, and one additional document called a "Certificate of Compliance." The Certificate of Compliance The Certificate of Compliance proves you've met the investment requirements for citizenship. It's issu
  11. Hello friends, I am curious about one question, in 2008, 1 USD was equal to 1.15 TL but now in 2020 1 USD is 6 Turkish Lira. Why is it so? I tried to do a research, at that time Turkish GDP was at 750 Billion $ and now it is 850 Billion $. The economy over time has increased the GDP but the Lira is going down. Why is it so? And if lira was almost equal to Dollar, is it possible now if corrective actions are taken in the monetary policy to get Lira back to its previous glory standing head to head with the dollar? Looking forward for opinion,
  12. Hello, I'm wondering what documents you need for the financial proof for the family residency? If my sponsor doesn't have a job but rather savings and we put it in the bank to show for the interview, is there a certain amount of time it has to be in your account, or is it fine to show them on the day your balance and that's that? Is there any further checks in the future or is it all on that day? What documents do we need to show and sign? and where do we need to get them signed? In the interview or before?
  13. Hello, I am expecting an amount of money to be transferred from Turkey to Canada. It's an amount that is less than 25k. A friend told me he thinks that funds are being frozen because an amount he sent over from Turkey to Canada was never sent by his bank. Has anybody heard of banks stopping money transfers from going through? Thanks. Mimi
  14. Hi all. I'm thinking of moving to Turkey and wondered if you have any personal experience with deposits in Turkish banks. The interest rate on deposits I was quoted is so high that it seems incredible to me, but if it is reliable I would think about this option. So I'd like to get some information from someone who has made a similar investment. Can you give me any pointers, or do you know someone who can? Thanks in advance!
  15. I am coming Turkey with wife on a tourist visa and plan to apply for a short term residence to understand the business environment and to open a small business there. Which online form to be needed to fill out for my wife? Is it same one as me? And how can I open bank account without residence permit?
  16. Hey Does anybody know about the interest of the vadeli hesap in Ziraat Bankasi? Two years ago it gave me 8 percent as far as I remembered for 10000 tl. It means that, every month it pays extra money for my main account. 65 tl for months with 30 days. It is not a yearly vadeli and the advantage is that you could withdraw any time you want without fare (ceza) Please give me information.
  17. What Turkish bank is most likely to give me a real credit card as a foreigner? My Ziraat Bank card has the MasterCard logo on it but it does not work on n11.com it does not work at hepsiburada.com I can not buy bus tickets online I can not rent a car with it and it has a POS limit of 2000 TL per transaction which is much too low for me. I asked to have the limit increased and it does not seem to be possible at all. So basically this card is useless to me apart from minor POS purchases and getting cash from ATMs.
  18. Is there any way I could retrieve my tax number? I had a student rp card and I have this card with me. But, I want to know my tax number before coming Turkey. Is there any website, like the one we get our T. C. number with the detail information we provide?
  19. Hey members, How are you all? I hope all are good; Last three months have seen a very steep plunging of Lira against USD. From 2.9 to 3.8 (as of 11 January). What are possible causes? What can be the solution and at what rate can we expect the Lira to finally be stable at? Any good economists or economy related people around to give suggestion or verdicts? Looking forward.
  20. I came to Turkey on a tourist visa and would like to get a residence permit for 2 year period for 'touristic purpose'. I'm currently 'unemployed' but I have more than sufficient funds for the 2 years period in my savings from my past work. On the residence permit application website, in the "Information on Income" step of the application process, I have declared the 'income status' and 'source of funds' based on my savings. However, I'm confused about the "Current occupation" part. Should I put it as my 'past profession/field' or as 'unemployed'? Would that affect my chances of getting a resi
  21. After a lot of stress about the best way to send my 7500 USD to Turkey without incurring annoying EFT costs or the instability of shifting large amounts of money around to different countries banking systems, I decided i'd just go to the interview in Izmir with my foreign savings bank statement and if they needed me to notarise and translate it or send it to Turkish bank account, I could do that on the day or in the 30 days they would have given to get my documentation, But it turns out everything was fine and my interviewer spoke better English than I did and accepted my bank statements.
  22. Dear all Is it better to change dollar to lira now or wait for up coming days. Since the lira value has raised. Does any body know why is that? I think the government controls it due to summer tourists to save much more lira in the country. If someone has idea about changing now or in next months please share it
  23. Recently at Ziraat bank in Urla / Izmir, I asked to take out 1000 EUR in cash from my EUR account. They asked me if I was sure because the fee to do this is 45 TL. Seems very high and I really expect to be able to take out my money for free ... not a fan of banks anyway. Can this be correct? I am planning to open an account with another bank because nobody at the Urla branch seems to speak any English whatsoever.
  24. Hi all, I would like to move to Turkey and my online freelancing income is enough to support myself in a cheap part of Turkey, but I don’t have a year of income saved up. The official requirements for self-employed people look complicated and seem to want me to have a registered company. My income is about $500 per month on average. Also, I have some wealthier relatives who could write statements of financial support and share bank statements if needed. Would that be accepted? I think I would apply for the 1-year tourism RP and live somewhere in the east. Thanks for any info you
  25. Hello everyone, I tried searching for this but I couldnt find a clear answer, so sorry if this has been asked already. I have my RP appointment in October, and I'm trying to sort everything out. It seems like I need to show that I have enough money in strictly a Turkish bank account, but ive been to three banks yesterday (HSBC, ING and Garanti) and they all said there is no way to open a bank account before getting the RP. Am I missing something here? How am I supposed to show that I have enough $$ for a RP in a Turkish bank if I cant open a turkish bank account without a RP?
