Hi guys. To start off, I have touristic residence permit valid till April 14 2020 issued in afyon. But after I arrived from my vacation from Europe last January 2020, I was already starting to live in antalya. covid came, and I wasn't able to move intercity to afyon to do my extension and I was stuck in antalya, so I did a new residence permit application in Antalya scheduled July 2020. I was wondering if there are new requirements. I just wanted to prepare ahead of my appointment. I have rental agreement with my apartment here in antalya, bank statement, application form. Is there anything else I need to prepare? Also regarding registration of my new address, should I wait till my appointment to do it in Goc Idaresi? Coz I heard it was moved from Nufus office to Goc ldaresi for foreigners. Thanks in advance for your advise.
The Directorate General of Migration Management, or DGMM is, in Turkish, called the Göç İdaresi Genel Müdürlügü. Most Turks just call it the "Göç İdaresi." Apply Online First You must apply for your residence (residency) permit online, at https://e-ikamet.goc.gov.tr/. At the end of your application, the online system will give you an appointment date (or you will receive one by E-mail or SMS message) for you to bring a signed printout of your application, the required documents, and your passport to the Afyon branch office of the DGMM. During your appointment, an immigration specialist will go over your application package. If it is approved, he or she will give you a temporary residence permit which will keep you legally in Turkey until your residence permit card is printed and sent to your address by registered mail. How to Get There Besides viewing the map above, you can also click on the "Plan my route" button. This will take you to Google Maps, where you can enter your starting location and submit it for directions and the route you need to take. If you take a taxi, tell the taxi driver "Göç Idaresi" (guhch ee-dah-reh-see). You can also show the taxi driver your completed online application, which will have the address on it.
