  1. Hi, I have a quick question. My residence expires in April but i just renewed my passport. Am I supposed to notify immigration authorities or update my info on e-devlet, or do I wait until I apply to renew residence and then show both old and new passport?
  2. I have read on Doc Martin's site that you do not need a translated and noterised copy of your passport when you are making a first application for and RP. Is this still correct?
  3. I would like to know if the 90 days rule is depending on the person or on the passport, means if someone has 2 passports, can he/she stay in the country 180 days by using 2 passports or not?
  4. Hi guys, I am about to apply for a resident permit at Istanbul. Can any one tell me whether my passport will be stuck during this process, or do they return the passport after the submission of the application and the necessary documents?
  5. My friend has her short term renewal appointment in Pendik, Istanbul on the 6th of November. The agency that filled her application gave me the documents today but they have inputted her OLD passport number. My friend got her residence permit from Antalya in June (which they gave only 6 months) and she has since moved to Istanbul and during this time also renewed her passport. The agency is very sure that it's OK and told me they asked immigration as well and have done this "many" times before. They said her new passport number didn't work during the application. Knowing everyone gives you a different answer here I'm confused on what to do. I'm thinking of taking her to FATIH and updating her new passport/address (she has done the NUFUS update in Istanbul and traveled to Dubai for a few days with the new passport).
  6. Hi can anyone help me .Can i apply for a passport for my Turkish fiance in scotland ?
  7. I just renewed my US passport, by mail (UPS), from Antalya. The consulates don't handle renewals any more, they just receive the applications, which all go to the US Embassy in Ankara. Here's the link for renewing your US passport by mail: US Passport Renewals in Turkey I filled out the online form (DS-82), submitted it, and printed a copy to sign and enclose with the renewal package to send to the embassy via UPS. If you also submit the form electronically, they give you priority. For payment, I had to get a certified check from Garanti Bank (and ONLY Garanti Bank). Here's what the US Embassy website says: This was kind of a pain. First I had to find the branch which issued this kind of check. After trips to three Garanti Bank branches (and convincing various bank employees that Ganranti Bank DOES issue such checks), I found the branch which issues them. Apparently this isn't something they usually do. But they did finally give me a certified check for 110 USD. I found the UPS office in Antalya on their website. It's near the airport. Thankfully, the clerk was familiar with the process and had handled several US passport applications before. So I sent off my printed application form, photos, bank check and old passport by UPS and got the tracking number. I was able to track the delivery of my package, the dispatch of my new passport from the embassy, on the UPS website by using the tracking number. After around two weeks, UPS delivered my renewed passport to my door.

    Down the US Consulate "rabbit hole"

    I recently took a Pamukkale bus from Kaş to Izmir to submit the paperwork to renew my American passport. The cross-country buses serve tea, coffee, soft drinks, snacks and cheese sandwiches enroute.There are about nine short stops and one long stop along the way so I could get off and stretch and pee. Not bad, just tiring. At least I was able to read without getting a headache. Pamukkale provides free shuttle service in large cities so I was able to take a shuttle from the HUGE otogar into the city. My hotel was two buildings away from the Pamukkale ticket office and shuttle stop. That part was fine. I arrived in good time Sunday afternoon so I decided to find the place then so I would not be running around on Monday morning. A good thing… The address of the consulate is Mustafa Bey Cad./1387 Sok. No:1 D:8 On both maps you can see Dr Mustafa Enver Bey Cd. running from right to left. This Google map shows the address which the consulate gives. I walked around for nearly two hours Sunday evening and could find no signs or indication of any kind that the consulate was at or near that address. I asked taxi drivers and bar and restaurant employees and no one seemed to know where it was. I did find one restaurant manager who spoke good English who told me the address of his restaurant was 1387 Sok. No:3 and that No:1 was right next door. Again, no signs or any indication this was the correct building. I had an address, I found the right streets and no signs of any kind. So I gave up and went back to the hotel for a late dinner and went to bed. My appointment was not until 10:30 on Monday and I had plenty of time to get back to the area. I thought that by 0900 surely someone in one of the stores nearby would know the location of the consulate. I walked from the hotel, which was about 20 minutes, of course it then started to rain so by the time I got to the area I was wet even though I wore my hooded rain jacket! In the daylight I first went back to the building which the restaurant manager pointed out to me but I had no luck finding any indication that the consulate was there. I then walked up and down 1387 sokak and saw no signs or a US flag or anything. I asked a person in a restaurant and he told me the consulate was on 1383 sokak, the next street up!?! OK,so I walked up and down on 1383 and I asked a young man opening a coffee shop if he knew where it was, he did not. So I walked one more time up the street and found a clothing shop opening, the clerk said yes she knew where it was and walked me right to an alley around the corner which was the alleged entrance. At this time a private security guard comes up and tells me to wait and points at a woman getting out of a car. I then saw a sign next to her car, a very small sign, that said"Konsologlu otopark." Ommphh!! The woman was indeed of the consulate and was just arriving of course she then told me in a no uncertain tone that I could not come up until my appointment time. The security guard nodded to her and looked at me to confirm my understanding. So I wentback to the coffee shop and tried to warm up and dry off. This Google map shows Firsat35 clearly on it. The consulate is directly across the street from this building, not on 1387 Sokak!!! At 1015 I went back to the side entrance of the building, approaching from 1383 NOT 1387 sokak. I entered the lobby in which there are no signs, I went to the elevator, again no signs. The consulate woman did tell me it was on the top floor so I took the elevator up and got off. NOW, there appeared signs of an imposing and menacing nature telling visitors they were on "hallowed" American soil and under no circumstances should they enter any but the properly marked door. SoI went to that door, looked dutifiully at the CCTV camera and upon being buzzed in, I noticed that the steel doors where the thickness of small bank vaults. When I approached the bullet-proof glass window I asked her why was the address wrong. She said it was not and I explained what I went through. She merely shrugged and said the address was correct. I then asked her if anyone else had difficult finding the place. She looked me in the eye and said no. I gave up trying to reason with the bureaucrat in her. As I was dealing with the paperwork and all, some other people entered. They were Turkish-Americans and I asked them if they were from Izmir and did they have difficulty finding the place. They were from Antalya and said yes, it was difficult finding the place. (go figure huh?) Security is all well and good but for a legitimate visitor to have to wander around trying to find the place is nuts. The consulate will supposedly send my passport by cargo. (I hope) There you have it, my journey down the American rabbit hole and back. Has anyone else had this experience?
  9. I am an Irish Citizen who married a Turkish girl 28 years ago and had a child from the marriage who is now 18. I have now been divorced for some 6 years and my x has re-married. We have not registered the divorce in Turkey. We have lived in the UK all of our marriage. I hold as does my x wife and child, Irish Passports. I still have a good relationship with my x wife and child and my relations in Turkey. I want to retire to Turkey and possibly teach English. Am I entitled to a Turkish Passport?
  10. My husband and I are moving to Mersin next year with our 10 year old daughter. We were married in Australia and my daughter was born in Australia. What would be the best thing for us? Should we obtain a residence permit knowing it needs to be renewed each year or do we apply for Turkish citizenship and / or passport? Any help would be appreciated.
  11. My US passport runs out this year so I'll need to renew here in Turkey. Does anyone have experience of doing this now the passports have gone biometric? Costs, procedure and how long it takes would all be welcome information!
