  1. I will soon extend my residence visa for tourist purpose and have some questions. Wondering if I have right documents?. I have a contract for a flat to be stamped by the Notary. Does the landlord need to accompany? Can I and the man I live with use the same contract when both name of the acquaintance is on the contract. My partner will search in September and I in January. I have a pension from Sweden, is there a certificate from the Pension Authority, which shows how much money I receive each month? Could it be written in English? We are over 65 years old, do we need to take out Insurance.
  2. One of the most important things you must do, while living in Turkey, is keep the immigration office informed and updated on where you're living. And it all begins when you first register online for your residence permit. When applying for a Turkey residence permit, you must have a legally listed address that can be a property you own or rent, a friend's house, or a hotel. Each address type has its own required documents, and a change of address must be reported to the immigration office, with out-of-province moves requiring a new residence permit application. In this article, I'll e
  3. 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 any
  4. Three police officers stayed for half an hour and wrote down a letter that me and my other housemate signed, saying we lived there, the house was a positive place, that i worked online and did not work in Turkey etc. I'm applying for my 3rd RP, another renewal. I've applied for 2 years this time. Is it normal? I should mention my card expires 23rd August, but i applied on 20th august and got appointment on 27th of august. They mentioned to apply before the expiry date next time, but I'm still unsure if they had visited because of the expired date OR because i have an application under proces
  5. My wife is a student and her residence permit is going to be expired after two months. She wants to apply for renew next month in order to avoid any excessive fee. The thing is that I forget where should I pay that 72 tl? We paid something like this and do I need to pay it again? How about the rp card fee? University said that just around 200 for insurance and 72 tl for ...!? I don't know whether they are correct or not. Rules in Turkey are somewhat vague!
  6. Its my 5th year renewal of RP, every year I was able to do my application online and then sent all my document by post. As I was told today Il Goc idairesi in Bakirkoy was close down and apparently everybody must come to an inteview now. After I submitted my aplication I waited 1 week for a message to come giving me an appointment which was 1 month later. As almost everybody I was having problems with the website as well giving me errors all the time, but after 2 hours I was able succesfully submit my aplication ( problem seems to be solved when you use turkish language only ) I brought a
  7. I finally got the ptt SMS with tracking number and saying that my card has been issued and shipped to me from Ankara. These are some information may help you: Istanbul Date of renewal 21 Dec 2018 through PTT. SMS date is 31 Jan 2019. I have sent the renewal application before the RP expires in two days, then I left Turkey. First issue was 6 months, Now with renewal I got 2 years.
  8. My parents ( my father and mother both over 65 ) got their RP expiring end of August 2019. This was issued in Antalya for one year and it was on a rental agreement. Since then Me and my cousin bought a flat in Alanya for our parents and Tapu (title deed) is registered on our names but we both live in Europe and come and visit our parents sometimes. My question is can we apply for our parents in Alanya to renew their RP on our property as they will be living here not in Antalya. and can we apply for 2 years RP since this property is bought for them. in terms of finances we are s
  9. I have hired someone to apply for a renewal of my touristic RP, it was 4 months, and we applied for 2 years, that person did the renewal through PTT, and after few days he sent me this pic (attached) as a proof of the approval, however, he is not telling me the system he gets this proof from, I think that happens for business and profession secrets reasons ! could anyone tell me where can I check the renewal status of my RP application ? before you guys tell me to try this web I like to tell you that I have done that through https://e-ikamet.goc.gov.tr but It did not work. I believe he
  10. My partner delivered her documents by appointment exactly 90 days ago (16 August 2018) to Istanbul, Pendik office but she hasn't received any SMS or email so far. Also, the Goc Idarasi (Immigration Office) didn't give her the paper which usually they hand out after receiving the application. She went there a month ago again to find out about her result but they told her to wait 90 days. she made numerous calls to 157 and every time they told her to wait 90 days. Finally, today She called them and the first representative gave her a tracking number which made us excited but later found th
  11. In my home rent contract my name and my wife's name are written. I went to the Population and Citizenship Bureau (Nüfus) in order to obtain a proof of address document. They gave me and there is no problem. Now, if my wife want to get it in order to renew her residence permit I should go with her to the Nüfus or she just requires to bring the contract (notary approved copy) to the Nüfus and they will give her easily? Is there any problem with this? Maybe they said that this address is submitted by another person since they don't know she is my wife, right? Does the contract with not
  12. I never saw any information about reporting my address to the Nufus Ve Vatandaslik Isleri Genel Mudurlugu after I got my first Ikamet, as reported in the FAQ on this website. So I never did this before 20 business days. So i'm wondering if something has happened to my Residence Permit? Is there a problem? I never got any mail or email so it's probably fine? Second Question: Im currently on summer Holiday away from my rental property and will be for the next 2 -3 months. My short term residence permit expires in 40 days, so i do not want to go to the local Nufus to get a place of
  13. Two questions about leaving the country after having applied for extension by mail (and the old residence permit having expired). I am planning two trips abroad in the next couple of weeks, one for a long weekend and one for approximately 3 weeks. I did not receive a document allowing me to leave Turkey while waiting for the card to arrive - not even when I had to submit an additional document in person in the Bakirköy office. 1) After calling 157, it is my (skeptical) understanding that I should print out my application document and get it stamped and signed at the Bakirköy office and us
  14. My residence permit ends at the end of March. My appointment for renewal is set for June 1. Can I leave the country before the expiration date and travel as a tourist before my appointment?
  15. 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
  16. Can someone tell me how many days before my residence permit's expiration i must apply for renewal from website? Also i really don't like send my document by post PTT (confused) & I prefer go there as person , any solution?
  17. Hi guys. I checked the ptt website. in 25/12/2017 my documents have been delivered to goc idaresi. today is 1/2/2018 and I haven't received my card yet. now I have two questions: 1) I told ptt that I need "iadeli taahhutlu" but I don't know he paid attention to this matter finally or not. I don't know my pocket has been sent by this or normal mail. I just paid 9 Tl for that. if it would be "iadeli taahhutlu" I should receive a paper form the ptt but I haven't received it. is there any problem in here?! 2) some one told me between 1 and 3 weeks you should receive your c
  18. I have been experiencing residence permit renewal woes, and wondering if anyone can help. My last residence permit expired on January 1, and I tried to start the renewal process online on December 31. The system gave me an application number and seemed to register my application, but it never reached a screen at which the system told me how much money to pay or gave me a form to print. I thought that with the new online system maybe it would take a few days and that the Göç Idaresi (immigration department) would email or text me. I just checked again and found that the system has no record of
  19. Hi My rp has been expired last time and I did not renew it last year since I came back to my home country. Now I am in Turkey and I want to apply again. I have not been in Turkey for more than a year. I went bank and enter my kimlik number and it is valid and my name appeared at the board. Do I need to pay the fees (both of them as far as I remember 50 dollars and 50 tl) again in order to get rp card? What do I need ?

  21. Hello everyone, I am currently in the process of trying to renew my residence permit and had a couple questions. My residence permit is set to expire at the beginning of November, so I thought I should try and get a jump-start because I have read online that it can be difficult to try and get an appointment. At first I was under the assumption that you didn't need an appointment for a renewal, but I have read some conflicting things online that says that now you need an appointment? Does anyone know if an appointment is now necessary? Also, I started my online application for renewa
  22. First I'd like to thank this forum so much it gives a lot of great information about almost everything in Turkey it is my second year here in Turkey I've renewed my residence permit another year, my question is as I read in many sources after 5 years of my staying in Turkey I can apply for the citizenship but is it possible from the short term residence permit ? another word does this permit count ? some sources say it doesn't count only the long term residence counts. Another question. Can I renew the short term residence permit every year forever ? because some say this residence p
  23. Hi Everybody I live in Antalya since 2014 and i renewed my ikamet last year for the first time. No troubles at all. Some days ago i read on the internet that there is no guarantee for renewal of Residence Permit issued for touristic purpose. However the same article says that it is guaranteed in case of property owner with tapu. Since i am renting at the moment i am a bit worried. I would like to know if someone knows something about that.
  24. Hi, Im resident in Istanbul. After my anticipated wait to renew my visa on the new system using the postal application service I tried applying for my renewal today but on my attempts got told that I was not recognised on the system. Frustrating part is I've got all documents ready to go then face this problem. I wonder if anyone else has encountered this problem ? Or advice on the issue. Help would be most grateful.!
  25. Hello all, so today I was gonna go through the online renewal thing, but I got the following message: You must apply to Provincial Directorate of Migration Management in your province since the period of your residence permit is expired.[103] Applications for extension shall be made within sixty days prior to the expiration of the residence permit and, in any case, before the expiration of the residence permit.[106] So, my question is: do I now have to do the whole thing like before? Getting an appointment and going there and suffer through all the stress that entails? Woul
