  1. Dear forum, I’m from Sweden and moved to Istanbul together with my girlfriend to join her for her exchange semester at the Istanbul Technical University. The 90/180 rule applies to me as a tourist, however, as I have been entering and exiting the country several times this year (and will at least 2 more times this year) I am not sure how to count and whether I will need a residence permit or not. I already went here on April 18th for vacation and stayed for 11 days. On the 28th of August I came back to Turkey with my girlfriend for her school start, exited again for a week, and then came back again. I will leave again on the 28th of October and in total I will then have spent 67 days in Turkey (including the days in april). Thing is, if we count from 18th of April (my first entry) and 180 days onward, that period would end 14th of October. Does this mean, that by my time of re-entry to Turkey (which will be on the 2d of November), a new 180 day period will start of which I can utilise another 90 days of stay on a tourist visa? All the best, Marcus
  2. So I've been seeing rumors that to obtain a residence permit after January 2020, you must have a good reason to stay that is satisfactory for immigration to approve. Property, business, going to a uni., training. But I didn't see the reason for extending your "touristic stay" aka just to live there. Wondering if there is some truth to this rumor?
  3. Hi, I have a quick question. My residence expires in April but i just renewed my passport. Am I supposed to notify immigration authorities or update my info on e-devlet, or do I wait until I apply to renew residence and then show both old and new passport?
  4. Hello, I have applied for my residency, first i didnt recevie any SMS from PTT, i called 157 they confirm me the tracking number and ask me to check with PTT, i checked on there website, in there tracking its mentioned already delivered, 1 week ago it was delivered to the PTT and after 1 week its showing delivered. i am bit confused where did they delivered it ? does it mean they deliver back to Ankara, or anyother office, please let me know i am bit confused with this process. thanks,
  5. dear members, i have an question about new resident permits office in konya , is there any office to start and process resident permits for new application in konya ? thanks
  6. Hi I have valid RP based on my current address, next week we are going to move to a new address is about 1 km from our current address. Should I inform the DGMM about that or just to change the address in Nüfus? Best regards Fada
  7. Hi all , I just discovered this forum , seems to be very informative. About my self. I am from Australia, working in Turkey on the 1915 Çanakkale suspension bridge project. I live in an apartment, paid for by the Australian company I work for in Gelibolu. My wife has also arrived same day as me on a 90 day in 180 day visa. We arrived on the 13th of October . I’m hoping to get her a residency permit. Is it advantageous to apply on line now? Reading these forums I think we will need a marriage certificate, that is in Australia , so we won’t be arriving back till at least the middle of January after a two week break. I believe we need a rental contract too. We can organise that easily enough . My wife can leave for Australia early so as to not use up her 90 days though. I just don’t know whether to apply now and wait till we come back , or apply when we DO return with the marriage certificate. Is there any thing else I will need? Like medical insurance, how would I get that if she is not a resident? Many thanks In advance . Dave
  8. I am an exchange student from Thailand who will go to Izmir(on 15 Sep 2014.) for a paid internship under the programme called IAESTE(The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience) with a turkish company. I got so confuse from the Embassy of Turkey in Bangkok that whether what I need is an Internship Visa or only residence permit? About two months ago, two of my friends on the same program went to Turkey with Internship Visa when the consulate staff told me that I don’t need any Visa but only to apply for residence permit after my arrival in Turkey (Regarding Thai citizen exempt Visa for 30 days visit). How is it possible that people under the same conditions require different document? Please affirm me the clear answer. Thanks
  9. Hey... I'm going onto my fifth residence permit now... and every time is a new headache. I am trying to apply for extension and I get a technical error message at the third page (passport info) every single time. And, its not because Im entering anything wrong. I called them and they said try at odd hours. I did, still the same technical error message! My residence expires on March 11, I really want to mail this in and get on with things. What should I do? I also wrote them many times and never get a response...
  10. How to get residence permit for my child under 18 years? I got my residence permit some months ago. Now I need to get one for my child who is 16 years old. I am abroad most of the time.

  12. No temporary RP paper or any other paper given after I submitted my application. She just took my phone number and told me to go. I was so nervous I even left my receipt in the file I submitted. Does anyone one know what will happen next ? I submitted on the 10/10/19
  13. I was in the process of renewing my resident permit when my mom was diagnosed with cancer. I had to leave almost immediately to care for her. I did not have everything ready to submit so I submitted what I had and left Turkey. My application was subsequently rejected. I knew that this was going to happen so I went and got a 15 day travel document. I have been in the US for 6 months which is obviously way longer than 15 days. I am ready to go back- I have my e-visa and ticket. What can I expect when I arrive in Istanbul? Am I going to have to pay some kind of fine for staying out longer than 15 day? TIA
  14. I am currently in Turkey with a residence permit that expires in November. I plan to make a two month trip abroad to Asia and then return in February. I tried to extend the permit before leaving but the appointment date they gave me will be after I leave. So I'm wondering - as I already know when I'll be back is it possible for me to make the appointment in advance so that I don't have to wait for 1-2 months just to get the appointment? I did see that on the form it had an option to put "expected date of arrival in Turkey" and I can get confirmation the appointment date by email. When I get back I will need to apply for a visa and to do that I need to get the RP as quickly as possible.
  15. We (my husband, our adult son and I) are planning to rent an apartment for 1 year in Marmaris or Icmeler. My husband has an income from retirement, but my son and I (58 years old) have due the circumstances no income. Our son is diagnosed with autism. My son and I have savings in the bank, enough for the required amount for both to live in Turkey for 1 year. Is it true that a marriage certificate translated by a sworn translator relieves me of having about 6000 Euro on a Turkish bankaccount? Our son is going to live with us in the apartment in Turkey. My husband is going to sign the rental agreement. Doesn’t my son get difficulties to get a Residence Permission because he is over 18 years old? He is 22 years old by the time we are in Turkey. I hope someone can give us more information. Last question: do we need a passport or is an ID card also valid to get an RP? thanks in advance!
  16. First time poster, looking forward to contributing as best as I can. We have a house near Izmir, and spend each summer there. At present back in the UK, but need to go to Izmir to sort out a major issue with my TC number. My query is, am I able to apply for my RP, go through all the necessary paperwork and appointments, but set up a POA for my neighbour to get the RP on my behalf, whilst I return to the UK. I simply cannot afford, to spend 4-6 weeks in Turkey waiting. Thank you sincerely for any help or advice.
  17. Hello, My residence permit application in Istanbul is under assessment. I have had my appointment and have been told it will arrive within 90 days, if approved. However, i now need to leave the country for 10 days. I've called the Migration Office helpline and have been told conflicting stories about the legality of leaving Turkey whilst waiting for an RP to arrive. Some staff members say it can't be done at all, others say it can but only if a fee is paid and a document called the muracaat is obtained. Can anyone here offer any advice or clarification? Regards,
  18. I have read on Doc Martin's site that you do not need a translated and noterised copy of your passport when you are making a first application for and RP. Is this still correct?

  24. Hey all, I would like to know if anyone has information on obtaining a RP for a spouse (both are not Turkish citizens). Or will my spouse have to go through the same process as me? What if I'm the sole income person that can sustain both of us, how will my spouse be able to prove that she can live off of the RP requirements. As I know there isn't a set rule on income requirements for the RP, what is a good rule of thumb? Just above the minimum wage in Turkey? Thanks everyone!
  25. An apostille is an internationally-accepted certification attached to a government-issued public document. It can also be a stamp or seal on the document itself. The apostille makes the document it's attached to legal for use in Turkey and in any other country which has signed the international apostille convention. It also includes contact information for the issuing authority if further authentication is required. The Apostille Convention The Apostille Convention (Hague Convention of 5 October 1961 Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents) established an agreed-upon, standard way of legalizing documents between countries. It also required each country to designate one or more "competent authorities," as the convention calls them, to issue apostilles.You'll find a list of participating countries on the Hague Conference on Private International Law website. What To Do If Your Country Isn't On the List If your country isn't on the list, then it isn't participating in the Apostille Convention, and you'll have to contact your country's embassy, consulate, or foreign ministry for instructions on how to legalize your document. And you can go directly to "Step 3: Get the Document and the Apostille Translated." The 3-Step Legalization and Translation Process Step 1: Learn Who the Competent Authority Is and How to Send Documents to Them Go to the list of competent authorities here: HCCH Authorities (per Party) Find your country on the list, and click on the link which has the words "Competent Authority (Article 6)." That will take you to a page which explains how to contact the competent authority, including a link to a website which should give you information about where to send your document, what the fee is, and how much time it will take. Note: There may be one, or more, competent authorities for each country. For example, in the UK the competent authority is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), while each of the UK's overseas territories each has its own. In the USA, each state has its own competent authority, and so does the federal government in Washington, DC). Step 2: Send Your Documents Create a cover letter which includes your e-mail address and telephone number, as well as your return address, the name of the document you are sending and its date and document number. Send the cover letter and document by registered mail or cargo delivery service to the address listed on the competent authority's website. What the Competent Authority Does Each competent authority has a file containing the signatures of government employees who are authorized to issue public documents. After receiving your document, they'll check the signature on the document against their signature exemplars. If everything is okay, they'll attach the apostille to your document (or stamp or place a seal on it), and send it back to you. How Much it Costs and How Long it Takes Each competent authority has its own fees, so the cost will vary. The time it takes will also vary according to your choice of delivery method. But once it gets to the competent authority, turnaround time is usually just one or two business days. Step 3: Get the Document and the Apostille Translated After you receive the document with its apostille (or other legalizing document if your country isn't part of the convention), both must be translated into Turkish by a yeminli çevirmen (sworn translator). The translator will then have the translation notarized. For a typical document, this might take as little as one or two hours. Your Foreign Document is Now Legal in Turkey You can now give your document to the Turkish authorities and it will be accepted. It is now as legal in Turkey as it is in your home country. Important!: The notary will stamp both the original document, the apostille, and the translation on the back with his or her stamp. That stamp will include a document number. Photograph or write that number down and keep it for your files. If later you need those same translated and notarized documents, you can simply take that number back to the same notary and ask them to pull it from their files. It will be a lot cheaper than going through the whole process again. Finding a Sworn Translator The Yeminli Çevirmenlik Federasyonu (TURÇEF, or in English, Federation of Sworn Translators) Has a website here: https://www.turcef.net/ At the bottom of the home page is a menu of the regions of Turkey. You can use this to find a listing of sworn translators for your area, which include their contact information and the languages they are authorized to translate to and from. Another way to find a translator is to find a notary first. Noters work with a specific group of translators who have offices nearby. Finding a Notary You can find all notaries public in Turkey here: http://www.tumnoterler.com/ You can also just walk around the center of town and look for their signs. A Note on Private Companies which Arrange Apostilles There are numerous private companies which charge for getting an apostille for your document. They are not "competent authorities" under the Apostille Convention. They simply do everything that I have written above, which you could just as easily do, and charge you for it. Questions? If you have any questions about apostilles or other legal issues, please post them in our Turkish Law Forum.
