  1. 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?
  2. Do I need to get a tax number for a family residence permit (FRP) like for the short term RP? Or will it all work through my husbands (Türk). Do I need to get a health check up for the FRP like for the short term residence permit?
  3. Family residence permits may be issued to dependent family members of a sponsor who is a Turkish citizen or who has been a legal resident of Turkey for at least one year. 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 Appointments are now required for extensions of all residence permits. This involves using the online application system and selecting the option for "extension" rather than the first-time application option. The documents required for extensions are the same as they are for first-time applications. 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).

  8. I hope I can get some answers over here. I'm married with a Turkish citizen so I got a family ikamet (residence permit) but it expired. We are both outside turkey for over a year now. The thing is I want to come back to live in turkey again but my husband has to stay in my country (job). For what I understand he has to be present at the appointment but he can't leave his job just for an interview. So... Would they accept an Skype interview (that way he can be present) so I can keep on applying for a family ikamet. ? Or Can I apply this year as a tourist ikamet and when the comes to turkey change it for a family ikamet again? In any case I will be applying as First time because my ikamet expired already and I didn't renew it before leaving turkey. Note that right now both me and my husband are outside of turkey so we can't call 157 or go to ask to the office.

  11. I'm planning on buying an apartment in Turkey and obtaining a short-term residence permit. I also plan on renewing it until I can apply for a long-term permit. I read that family permits are given to spouses and children but I couldn't find any information regarding parents. I'd like to know if it'd possible to obtain a family residence permit for my mother and what the procedure for that would be like. Thanks. Also I don't know if it makes any difference but I'm an Indian citizen and I know that some countries are a bit hesitant towards accepting Indians (rightfully so).

  16. I’m new to Turkey Central and desperately trying to fill in the online form for my Family Resident Permit renewal (my permit expires on MONDAY!!). This is my 4th year doing this but the offices I have attended previously have been super helpful and filled in the form for me. Same office, different staff, no help this time. They made out I should just put ‘blah blah blah’ on the form for all address details and it would be sorted out at the actual appointment. But now I cannot put matching addresses for my current address and my sponsor’s address (because I made the first one up like they suggested) and I cannot find a way to go back on the form to correct any errors without inputting acceptable info on the sponsors page (which I can’t do without going back, catch 22!). Is there any way I can go back on the online form or is ok to just cancel the application and start again? It asks for a cancellation reason as though it is a serious matter to cancel and I don’t want to be in a position to mess up the process even more! I’d like to just cancel and start again if that is the best option. I couldn’t get any answers from the unhelpful staff as my son’s school called and I had to leave to collect him as he was ill.
  17. Hello, I have a family residence permit and we will soon moove to an other adress. We will stay same city (istanbul ) . What need i do except go to nüfus office? Thanks.
  18. Now in near 2 month my 3 year Family residence permit will be expire (married with TR Citizen)! I tried last week to make a renew on the system and it told 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!
  19. 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.
  20. I've written several guides 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 Guides If you have any questions which are not answered by these articles, or in these family residence permit forums, please open a topic.
  21. 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 never mind, I answered my own question: a blue card can be given to Turkish citizens after they gave up citizenship.
  22. Whats the earliest you can renew your residence card. Mine expires in April but my husband and i have to leave Turkey in March for personal reasons and i wont be here to renew it. Any advice or help is greatly appreciated.
  23. Hi, I own a house near Bodrum and have done for the past 6 years. My wife and I are hoping to move over permanantly this year, but my wife only holds a Thai passport. Does anyone know, what the possible restrictions are if any for Thai nationals applying for residency, BTW I hold a UK passport? Thanks in advance.
  24. I am desperately trying to get an appointment date for an Aile Ikamet (family residence permit) application (first application) via the e-ikamet website. After filling in the application form I always get a calendar 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 calendar 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.
  25. 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?
