  1. 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.
  2. Last week left our Mersin apartment on Thursday afternoon headed to our new place in Antalya. We drove half way and stopped at a hotel where there were only two other guests. On the way to Antalya we went past some of the biggest greenhouses I have seen - used for growing bananas. We arrived at Antalya on the Friday afternoon - to another hotel as our furniture and goods were not due to arrive at the new apartment until Saturday morning. The removal company decided that because access was limited they needed three more men to do the job so we paid for that. Everything was in and furniture assembled by late afternoon and we spent some hours unpacking. We also got the internet connected and air conditioning installed. Sunday was more unpacking and haircuts for me and the boys. We have been having takeaway food delivered as we don't yet have the gas connected. Sunday evening I listened to a lecture a friend was giving on Zoom "Listening to the Underverse: Gravitational-Wave Astronomy" My wife has ordered many curtains. It was rather hot over the weekend, reaching 41°C on Sunday, down to 37°C today, so we found that more air conditioning was needed, that has now been fitted. We have been sorting out out the natural gas supply and still need to as residents of Antalya. We have to complete our registration here as Antalya is a different province to Mersin, the process takes a few days, but once finished and we have our new ID cards I will be automatically registered with the Turkish state health system. As I am married to a Turkish citizen I qualify for free treatment, though I do have to pay for prescriptions. Still have lots of unpacking to do, but feeling rather exhausted..
  3. (I wasn't sure what category to post this under, so move as necessary I will be in Antalya for the summer (July and August), staying in the Muratpasa area, and was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to cope with the heat? I was advised that I shouldn't go outdoors from 11-17:00, is that accurate? Is it humid or a dry heat? Also, going to the beach and on day trips- should I plan for early mornings or later in the afternoons? I am a woman from the US and will be there by myself, so I would also love to meet up with some expats and/or an expat group if anyone can point me in the right direction on where to find out about meetups and events? Last question - I have quite a few tattoos and since I haven't been to Turkey in many years, I was wondering if it is advisable to wear clothing that covers them up in the area where I am staying? Obviously near the beach and tourist areas I am not too concerned.. but just curious because last time I traveled around Turkey I got a few "tsk-tsks" from men in different cities (even Izmir) because I didn't have them covered. Thanks in advance, everyone
  4. I need some help from those of you who know the Antalya area! We're flying over to see the family in Gebze for a week from 10 September, and then the plan is to fly down to Antalya for a week on our own. We've only ever spent day trips in Alanya / Antalya, while staying in Side or Kas, but we like the look of the area and we're thinking that the season is still lively there in September. So, if you had the choice, which area would you stay in? Oz likes a big pool to swim in, preferably with the option of going to the beach from the hotel too. If it wasn't for this, I would be tempted by a pansiyon. It's just the two of us, so we don't need child facilities. We're not really fans of remote hotels - we'd prefer to stay in an area where we can walk out and try local restaurants and tea gardens. We sometimes go for all inclusive if it's a good deal, but we don't like to miss out on good local food. We don't require All Day English Breakfasts! So please, any ideas very welcome. As we're booking so late, I don't know if we'll get in at the very popular places - but it would be helpful to know which direction to look in.
  5. 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 using the E-ikamet website, 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 Antalya 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. Assistance and Support Turkey's Residence Permit Helpline Turkey has a national helpline for foreigners called YİMER (Yabancılar İletişim Merkezi), or in English, the Foreigner's Communication Center. You can call this helpline with any questions you have about the residence permit process or about what documents you need, or if a long time has passed (at least 40 days), you can check on your application status. Be sure to have your passport, your application number, and/or your current residence permit with you when you call. You can reach YİMER from any landline or mobile phone in Turkey, for by calling 157. The call is free. If you are calling from another country, call 90 312 157 1122.

  7. I've been living in Izmir, or thereabouts, for many years. Farthest away from Izmir, I lived in Çeşme, at the end of the peninsula which juts out from the south part of Izmir. I spent a year there. Çeşme is very dead in the winter, to the point that I think it would be maddening for me, yet I do miss it because it's so quiet. In Çeşme, during the off season, everything's closed, and it's as if everyone goes into hibernation. The expats in Çeşme, mostly Brits, seem to go home early, so the winter months are exceedingly dull. I'm planning to move south, to leave Izmir. My main choices are Fethiye, Antalya, and Kaş. Fethiye I've been too, but it doesn't seem to have much charm for me, except for some very beautiful coastline and of course, Ölüdeniz. Now that opinion was based only on a visit of a few days, so I'm sure I don't have the full picture. During the summer, I visited Antalya. Antalya seems like a city which has a lot going for it, and wouldn't die during the winter. I think the ideal place for me would be where I could live in a reasonably quiet place, but be able to get to the city easily for those things that cities offer, and of course, beaches and sea, I must have those! While in Antalya I met with Fil, a resident of Antalya. I asked Fil where, if he could live anywhere in Turkey, that would be. Fil said, "Kaş." That's where Cukurbagli lives. Fil went on to say that Antalya is indeed seasonal, like a lot of other places which depend on tourism. He said there was a rather active expat life in Antalya as well, so I wouldn't feel so isolated. But in the end he said that he would like to live in Kaş. I've never seen Kaş, and I intend to visit it soon, during the off-season, to see what it's like during the off season. This is a very vague topic starter, I know, about as vague as my thoughts about moving down to the South Aegean or the Mediterranean. So I don't even know what I'm asking for here, I'm just soliciting comments! Where is the best place to live?

    Kolej Help

    Hey everyone, New to the forum and thought this would be the best avenue for my question(s). I'm currently working in a kindergarten but looking to move on hopefully to a kolej. I have a CELTA and about 7 years ESL teaching under my belt. I know that there are a lot of super qualified teachers that work in the private big schools here in Antalya but I was just wondering what my chances would be with just having a CELTA and experience? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Guidance appreciated. Thanks in Advance, Dean
