  1. Hi there, my name is Erdal and this is my very first post.. I am 37y old, my mother and father are Turkish born, but we emigrated to the Netherlands when I was 8y old and we all have double (dutch and turkish) nationality. The Dutch parliament soon will treat a new proposal for a law. If taken, it will mean that any person with a Dutch passport and another passport will loss his Dutch passport if he lives outside the Netherlands or the European, and (I emigrated to Chile 4 years ago). My aim is to keep my Dutch passport. For this reason I want to get renounce my Turkish citizenship. But it seems that before you can do this you need to first postpone your military service. Until 2004 I always postponed on time the military service. Due to negligence and laziness I did not do it afterwards. However 3 months ago I was a couple of days in the Netherlands and applied for the maximal extension possible (until the end 2012, the year in which I become 38y old). I would be grateful if somebody could some light on: 1) How long does a decision takes before the Turkish ministry of Defense takes a decision for postponement? 2) Does somebody (preferably with double nationality) renounced his citizenship? What were the EXACT things they ask you to bring to the embassy/consulate? When I was 3 months ago in the consulate in the Netherlands, I did not told I emigrated to Chile (so as not to complicate the postponement application). But, after official acceptance of my military service postponement for me the best would be to apply from Chile. 3) Would be sufficient just to show my Dutch passport and renounce at the Turkish embassy in Chile? Somebody from the Turkish consulate in the Netherlands (informally) told that the best would be to do it from Netherlands because they have all the information on me. My apologizes if I made it a bit too long. But basically I am asking for people who renounced there citizenship to share there experience with us. I will keep posting any new information I discover. Take care, Erdal
  2. Hi, I'm new on this site and have 2 questions that have been bothering me for a longtime. I have been trying to get info on the paid (dovizli) military service. I was born in Istanbul and been living in NY for 19 years now, I am 32 years old, Turkish and US citizen, and also have delayed my army service until age of 38. I called the NY consulate many times trying to understand dovizli service but the consulate people don't speak or understand English too well and wanted to see if anyone here can help. I know that there is a new law that passed for bedelli military service for 18,000 lira and expires in 13 February but I am more interested in other, dovizli askerlik, which if I understand it right, is 6,000 euro and can be paid in 4 payments. My questions is, if I do this dovizli service do I still have to serve 21 days in the army? There has been so many changes to this law that I don't know if you have to serve anymore, I also know that the payment went down from 10,000 euro. My second question is about the reporting of dual citizenship to Turkish consulate. I believe that my mom and I have done this about 5 years ago when we applied for new nufus cuzdani. Does reporting dual citizenship (US-Turkish) make me loose any benefits in Turkey, such as social security or health insurance (saglik sigorta)? I am asking these questions because I am planning to move back to Turkey Thank you for any help Maykil
  3. Hi guys, My uncle is forty years old, he has both, the Turkish and the Lebanese ID. He is deaf in one ear since he was child, and he lives in beirut since 35 years. Can he exclude from the compulsory military service or not? Because he can listen by one ear only. Thanks, Beirut, Lebanon
