  2. Hello together, now in near 2 month my 3 year Family residence permit will be expire (married witht TR Citizen)! I tried last week to make a renew on the system and it tolded me that i have to wait until 60 days before expiration reached and try again. Now the 60 days before expiration is reached but the system is not recognizing me for a renew, it says on turkey that it could not find my records in the system, i made a call at the call center and they told me to make instead a renew a "First Time Application" coz i made it 3 years ago on the old way without the new system! Did anyone knows this issue ? One of my friend had the same renew and it works (short permission) and it works he send with PTT and without an appointment! So should i make and "For First Time Application" or maybe wait and try and try again the renew ? My problem is that i read for GÖC Idaresi the very heavy waiting time for an appointment and coz of this it will not possible to travel out of Turkey until my appointment was done. I am married with Turkey spouse and have a lot of meetings in few month regarding my business all over the word. I hope you can help with your answers! Thanks

They are applied for and obtained from the Göç İdaresi Genel Müdürlüğü (Directorate General of Migration Management, or DGMM), which is usually in the capital city of the province where the sponsor lives. Each family member must apply for his or her own family residence permit, separately. Online Application All applications are first made online, at e-ikamet.gov.tr. First-time Applications While near the end of your online application, the system will ask you to select a convenient date and time for an appointment at the local DGMM office. The sponsor must also be present. During the appointment, an immigration specialist will review your application, identification, and hard-copy documents in person, and ask questions about anything which might be unclear. If your package is in order and there are no missing or inadequate documents, your application package will be sent to the DGMM headquarters in Ankara for approval. Once approved, your residence permit will be mailed to you by registered mail. Extensions When the time comes for you to extend your family residence permit, you can also do it online. The main difference is that instead of an appointment option, the online system will give you an address to which you must mail your application and documents, with a notarized copy of your identification (don't send original passports or ID cards). There have been exceptions to this, since some provinces, and under some circumstances, personal appointments are also required for extensions. If that is the case, the online system will let you know and ask you to choose a convenient time and date for the appointment. If you are told to mail in the package, you must do so by taahhutlu posta (registered mail), using the Turkish national postal system (PTT), or by using a Turkish cargo delivery company. The package must be mailed within five business days. All applications must be in separate packages. Note: Before starting the online process, have your photos already taken, and your health insurance policy, since the system will require you to upload one photo (it must be the same as the ones you include with your application). It will also ask you for your health insurance policy information, including start and end dates, and policy number. For more specific information on documents and requirements, please use the links below. Eligibility and Required Documents Those fitting into one of these categories may apply for a family residence permit. Foreign spouses of Turkish citizens (first time, extension) Foreign spouses of foreign legal residents (first time, extension) Foreign minor children of Turkish citizens (first time, extension) Foreign minor children of foreign legal residents (first time, extension) See this article for children of foreigners born in Turkey. Rights for Education First-time applications For first-time applications, the online system will allow you to select an appointment date and time to go to your local DGMM office with your documents. Both the sponsor and the applicant(s) must be present at this appointment. Extensions For extensions, the system will give you the mailing address for the local DGMM office. There is no appointment, and you don't have to go there in person. Duration Family residence permits are are issued for up to three years at a time, or until the expiration date of the sponsor’s residence or work permit. If the applicant's passport is due to expire any sooner than 60 days past the duration of the residence permit being applied for, this will also shorten the duration of the residence permit. The family residence permit entitles the holder to education in primary and secondary educational institutions until the age of 18. Family Members Remaining in Turkey After Age 18 Family members who reach age 18 may apply for a short-term residence permit, or any other residence permit for which they meet the conditions, provided the family member has resided in Turkey on a family residence permit for at least three years. If the family member is being cared for under the legal obligation of the sponsor, they may remain in Turkey with a family residence permit, even when they are over age 18. Divorce If a foreign spouse and holder of a family residence permit divorces the sponsor, the spouse may apply for a short-term residence permit, provided the foreign spouse has resided in Turkey on the family residence permit for at least three years. If a court has determined that the foreign spouse has been the victim of domestic violence, this three-year residence requirement will be waived. Death of the Sponsor If the sponsor dies, the family residence permit holders may continue to stay in Turkey until their family residence permits expire. If they want to stay in Turkey, they may apply for a short-term residence permit (within 60 days prior to the expiration of their family residence permit).

  12. I've written several articles about family residence permits, according to individual situations. I get my information first from the laws and official documentation, second from the personal experiences of foreigners who apply for them, and third from a manager at the Göç İdaresi Genel Müdürlüğü (General Directorate of Migration Management, or DGMM) who has been very helpful in making clear any issues which are unclear. You'll find the articles here: Turkey Family Residence Permit Articles If you have any questions which are not answered by these articles, or in these family residence permit forums, please open a topic.
  13. According to the Göç İdaresi Genel Müdürlüğü (General Directorate of Migration Management), short-term residence permits will now have a validity period of two years. The "120 Day Rule" which limits the time you can be out of the country to a maximum of 120 days in the previous year has been rescinded. Family residence permits will now have a validity period of three years. I will post more when I learn more, and also update the various articles on these topics.
  14. My daughter was born in Turkey. I've lived here since I was a kid on and off many many years. My sister is Turkish because she married a Turk. My father has lived here non-stop for years and years with a work permit. And still I don't qualify for anything other than tourist residence permit and now I learn it may not count towards the 5 year rule. Should I get married to a Turk right now yes or no? Let's take a vote. (I'm only half joking)
  15. My residence permit is still valid but I'm applying for my daughter's rp and my address has changed. How/where do I make an appointment to change my address or can I just wait and do it at the time of her appointment and do it then, bringing my new rental contract with me? Also, do I apply under family for my daughter's rp or under short term (and it's her first rp)? Does anyone know what 'blue card holder' means? Oh nevermind, I answered my own question: a blue card can be given to Turkish citizens after they gave up citizenship.
  16. I am desperately trying to get an appointment date for an Aile Ikamet application (First Application) via the e-ikamet website. After filling in the application form I always get a calender with all dates marked red and crossed out. It does't say "We are unable to find an available appointment date. Please try again tomorrow." I have been to the Migration office Izmir in person last Monday and they told me it is a temporary IT-problem and that it would be ok again on Tuesday. So I tried again umpteenth times in English and Turkish, from different computers and using different browsers, at different hours during the day and night, but without success. The result is always the same: the calender shows only red and crossed-out dates. Has anybody made the same experience and can give me some advice??? I'm really worried as my current ikamet expires 17. July.
  17. Hello everyone! I hope someone can help me In August we (my hubby and I) intend to move to Turkey from the US permanently. He is a Turkish citizen (J1 visa in US) and I am a US citizen. We've been married for two years and registered our marriage with Turkey two years ago. I've called different consulates/ consular help desks and everyone is telling me something different about visa/ residency permit acquisition. Firstly, do I NEED a special visa (spouse of Turkish citizen visa) to enter Turkey and apply for the residency permit? Chicago and consular desk call #2 said that I could easily enter Turkey on an e-visa, then apply for residency in the first 30 days of entry and be just fine. However, NYC told me that a spousal visa would be better for me- but didn't say that I COULDN'T use an e-visa. I would prefer the latter because I am a student with little time to travel, and our closest consulate is over 10 hours away I am afraid that the processing time is too long, and I won't have my visa in time to travel. Second, does anyone have any insight on the residency visa application process? From what I can tell, I need to apply for a short-term residency visa first, and change that after a year. Some websites say I need to apply now at a consulate in the US, but the consulates told me to apply at the nearest police station when I arrive in Turkey. Does anyone have an experience with this? Thanks!
  18. HI all, a nice conundrum for me. I'm moving to Turkiye (Istanbul), wife is Turkish (although we lived in the UK together for 15 years) with a 1.5yr old bambino So, need to apply for the 2yr family permit visa...... Well, first of all, I am/was planning to move in December. This is the last month in theory that they are accepting applications for first RP in turkey (allegedly). oh and there is a THREE MONTH waiting time now for an appointment. Alternatively, allegedly, I can apply for my first RP from the UK in Jan 2015. Not a single word about it on the crappy consulate website in the UK. So do I come to turkey in December and risk being told to sod off back to the UK and apply from there or do I wait until January in the vain hope that the UK consulate actually bother to post anything whatsoever about the subject and start processing this permit from the UK.......... oh and theres a 4 week waiting time for appointments too. So, any guesses? Does anyone actually KNOW anything about the above? I'm probably going to end up just waiting until about October and see what the latest is (meaning flights in December will be even more expensive..) By the way, 10 years ago my wife went through the UK immigration process. That was a bloody nightmare, even worse than this.......... so im not angry, just confused! Comments ?
  19. Ok so I got my residence permit in June and I was given a 2 year one. I've been in England now since 4th July and wont be returning to Turkey until first week in September. That part is ok no need for a smack on the back of the hand :-) however I will be coming home again in October and staying here until at least march/April due to me being pregnant and wanting to have my baby in England. Baby is due 12th Jan. I've read the thread about being allowed out for long periods of time due to health reasons but my question is does being pregnant class as a health issue and will they void my residence because im out the country for nearly 6 months? Which with the 2 months I will have already been out (to cover my July-sep period) would of course account to 8 months out the country. Bit confusing but any help would be greatly appreciated.
  20. Hi, I plan to relocate to Bursa with my family before the year ends and I wanted to ask some questions regarding that. Below is my situation and any insight on this will be highly appreciated! 1) We're 5 people who are looking forward to relocate. Me, my wife, my parents and my brother (who will turn 21 in January). 2) Now for RP for all 5, as I understand we'll need a rental agreement or property purchase. Will we need to sign a rental agreement such that it states that I, my father and my brother are renting? and my wife and my mother would be stated as dependents? Can we do rental agreements like this? Which involves 3 people renting? Will this make us eligible for RP application?3) If not for step 2, I'm almost certain that we can purchase property as joint-owners. Such that I, my father and my brother co-own the house. Will that make us eligible? 4) We need to show $300-$500 per month per person (depending on location)? In case $500, does that mean we will need to open 5 bank accounts and deposit $6000 each in them? 5) Are there other things that I need to consider?Thanks, Hamad
