    Proving You Have a Residence

    If you apply for a residence permit in Turkey, you must provide proof of an address. Here is what you will need. Renters First-time Application A notarized rental contract for the property you are renting, and a copy of your landlord's ID card. Extensions A Yerleşim Yeri ve Diğer Adres Belgesi (Place of Residence and Other Addresses Document), from the Nüfus ve Vatandaşlık İşleri Müdürlüğü (Citizenship and Population Directorate, or "nüfus"). See below. Students Staying in Dormitories An e-signed or stamped/sealed and signed document from the educational institution you are attending, which says you are living in a dormitory. Owners First-time application A tapu (property title deed) for the property where you are living, with your name listed as the owner. Extensions An address registration document from the local nüfus. Staying With a Friend If you are staying with a Turkish citizen or legal resident, you will need to go to a noter (notary) and create a taahhutname (literally "undertaking") with your host. This letter of undertaking guarantees that your host will be responsible for any fees or fines you incur, and that they will make sure you leave Turkey when your residence permit expires. If your host is married, the spouse of your host must also sign the undertaking. Learn more about this in our article Residence Permits with Someone Else's Address. Hotel Residents If you are applying for a residence permit so you can stay in Turkey for a few months beyond the expiration of your visa, but don't want to rent or buy a property, you can also use a hotel or pension as a residence. You will need a letter from the hotel or pension, stating that you will be using it as a residence, and documentation showing that you have checked in and are staying there. Yacht Owners You can use your yacht as your address. You will need a document showing the information about where your yacht is moored from the marina. The "Deposit Stamp Tax" There is an obscure Turkish law which requires a small tax, paid by the renter, for the deposit given to the landlord if the contract is more than one year old. Few people (even the noter or the people at the tax office) have ever even heard of it. By some unlikely chance you have a rental contract which is more than one year old and your noter tells you he won't notarize it without a payment receipt for this tax, See this article. Register Your Address with the Nüfus Unless you are staying with a friend, in a hotel, or on a yacht, you will need to register your address at the local Citizenship and Population Directorate (Nüfus) which services the area where you live. Turkey's Foreigner Communications Center The DGMM has a number you can call to speak to an immigration specialist. Call 157 from any telephone within Turkey. The call will be free. From outside of Turkey, call +90 312 157 1122. Long-distance charges will apply. See Also Residence Permit Forum: If you have questions or comments about Turkey's residence permit application process, please post them in our forum.

    Overstaying Your Visa Or Residence Permit

    Overstaying Your Visa Many foreigners have over-stayed a visa, or residence permit, without realizing it. The Turkish government deals with overstays with either a fine and/or a ban from re-entering Turkey. These vary according to the length of the overstay. If you've overstayed for less than ten days, you will be fined when you go to the border gate to leave, but you won't receive re-entry ban. If you have overstayed for more than ten days, you'll be banned from re-entering Turkey for a specified time. Fines Immigration officials at the ports of entry/exit have a chart which dictates fines and re-entry bans, based on the number of days of an overstay. The fine is paid at the immigration desk at the port when you leave Turkey. Re-entry Bans If you don't pay the fine, or if you have overstayed for more than ten days, you will receive a ban with a duration depending on how long you over-stayed. The shortest ban is 90 days. The longest is five years, with a maximum of 10 years in cases where the foreigner is determined to be a threat to public order or safety. Dealing with Border Control Officials Always be polite and respectful to border control officials, especially when you are leaving after an overstay. There have been many cases where the border control official involved has assessed a significantly lower fine, and not banned the traveler at all--even after an overstay for several months. Overstaying your Residence Permit The rules above also apply for overstays of a residence permit. If You Are Still Living in Turkey Unless your overstay is a very long one (especially if it's six months or more), you may be able to go to the Göç İdaresi Genel Müdürlüğü (Directorate General of Migration Management, or DGMM), pay the fine, and extend your residence permit. If you haven't overstayed for more than six months, and are told that you need to leave the country and serve a re-entry ban, contact your country's embassy or consulate. There may be a a consular official there who can call someone at the foreigners' bureau and smooth things over, and perhaps get you a lower fine as well. There is no guarantee that it will work, but it has worked in the past for some foreigners. Important! If you have overstayed your visa or residence permit and need to catch a flight at the airport, go early and go through passport control well before your flight. It could take an hour for the immigration officials to calculate your fine or ban, and for you to make payment for it. Then, if you miss your flight, you will have to book and pay for another one. Arrest and Deportation for Long Overstays If you are caught on the street with a significantly long overstay, you will be subject to arrest and deportation. If this is your situation, contact your country's embassy or consulate to make arrangements to turn yourself in, and make arrangements for leaving Turkey. By self-reporting with consular assistance, you can avoid being arrested, jailed, and deported. See Also The 90-in-180-day rule: Citizens of Europe, the UK, and the US can only stay in Turkey for 90 days in any 180-day period. This article covers how it works, and how it is calculated. External Links Calculator of travel days remaining under a Schengen short-stay visa: You can use this calculator by entering how many days you have been in Turkey, to determine how many days remain before you overstay. Schengen Visa 90 Day Calculator for iPhone: A downloadable app which enables you to calculate how many days you can legally stay in Turkey during the validity period of your visa. Check Schengen Visa App for Android: Another app you can use on the go to calculate how many days you can remain in Turkey on your visa.

(Because i need edit my info) 2:And anybody know if I should go as person to immigration office or I should post my documents ( because system gave me time&date in April 2017 to going there with my application & documents) but i heard people just extend/renew it by sending their documents with ptt post after they fill their application from online 3: My permit expire date is 12 February But it is written by mistake as 20february in my application (and system is lock & no way to edit) please if you guys know something about these 3questions let me know regards
  5. Hi, I sought some advice on applying for a short term residence permit before coming out to Turkey. One thing I was told was that I'd need to immediately go and register with the local police station (for me, Izmir). I've looked this up online, however, and the only things I can find referring to the need to do this is to apply for a residence permit. As I understand it, this has now moved online (I have just completed an application and have an appointment date for February). Can anyone tell me if I still need to go and register with the local police station for whatever reason? A friend of mine from Lebanon had to do this when living in the UK just so that the state knows where he is - would it be the same for me in Turkey? Bit about me: British citizen conducting research in Izmir and currently holding an appropriate visa which expires Jan 2019. Applied for a residence permit so that I can stay beyond the 90 days allowed on my visa. Thanks for any advice.

    overstayed

    My residence will expire today but when I went to book for a renewal, they told me that the system is not good and they gave me an application number without print out of details and money. I want to know if I have overstayed by doing that today without a print out.

    Statistics Residence

    Is there any statistical chart available where by country we can see the residence permits granted by Turkey say for 2016 cheers
  8. Dear Ken (or any other friends here) I am a student and married. Should I get residence permit for my wife or she should stay there under my residence permit (rp) card? I know that she should have an insurance. But, what about a rp card? Should I pay the same amount for her to get a card or she just can stay under tourist resident permit?(The one that given for 3 months and then extended for a year I think) I heard about "Refakatci" what is that? Thanks

    Foreigner ID before residency

    Hello everyone! Maybe you can help me sort this out. I went to open a bank account as part of the documention for the residency and they told me I need the Foreigner ID number besides the Tax number (which I already have). Is this Foreigner ID number the one you can ask for at a Nufus office? Or where can I get this number prior to acquiring the residency... Also I use to have one when I lived here before and it is now dated/due but will it be the same as the new one I will get? Thanks for your feedback!
  10. Well it finally happened - one of us (my wife) has lost her Ikamet card. She had it in her hand going through customs leaving Ataturk Airport on July 17th. Two weeks into a two and a half week stay in the UK we realized it was missing. As we were not carrying it around over there we are sure it must have been lost at Heathrow or Ataturk Airports. So we contacted Heathrow lost property, (returned to Istanbul on 3rd August) Turkish Airlines lost property, the Airport lost property and finally the Police at Ataturk (where important documents that are lost are supposed to end up). All to no avail. So today we obtained a Lost Property Report from the Police station in Uskudar - the first question the Turks always ask is "Where did you lose it?" Well if we knew where we lost it we probably wouldn't have lost it in the first place. The added complication is that 3 days after coming back we moved house. If we go to the Kadikoy Goc Idaresi and request a replacement without telling them we've moved they are going to send it our old address which will be a potential disaster in terms of finding where it ends up. If at the same time we say, by the way we've moved can you change our address I guess they will want to see another notarised contract (can anyone confirm?). We can't register at the Nufus Mudurlugu without the new Ikamet (I can but not my wife). At least we can do utilities with my Ikamet. If anyone has any experience in lost Ikamets please share - e.g. apart from the Lost Property Form is there anything else needed? What fees do they charge? Graham Nelson

    Residence Permit

    Good morning folks, I can visit Turkey via e-visa valid for a short period of time. However I would like to get a residence permit for myself and family. Do you know the procedure and the cost per person? Cheers
  14. Hello everyone, this is a great forum with great advice, a big thank you to everyone who posts on here! In short I've been living here in Turkey for around 10 months now, I have a 2 year residence permit and bought a house after getting my permit. After setting up a private company here with the intention of doing business, expenses have mounted tremendously and my savings have certainly dwindled. I searched about this but couldn't find a clear answer and I feel that very often even when asking a government official, they don't have an answer (plus my Turkish is not so fun to interact with). Can I apply for a job and get a work permit without having to change my residence permit? I feel it will be a hassle to change the status for myself and my large family. I really doubt this can be easily pulled off, but does anyone have experience with getting a work permit after getting a residence permit and what was the process? Thanks in advance, peace!
  15. Hello everyone , I just got into trouble about the address that I registered in my application. in the time I was making appointment and the randevu time , my husband and I were living in that address and we didnt want to move from there but we had to move to a new address 1 week after my husband's randevu. yesterday it was my randevu time and I noticed that they still didnt send my husband's application to ankara while we were expected to receive his Ikamat in 2 weeks . and they told me the police went to that address but coundnt find you there and they asked the neighbors is any American is living here and they said no, while we don know our neighbors too and our lookings is not like Americans and they think we are Iraqi, so they told just Iraqis are living here. now we faced a problem how to replace our new address to our application because our residency permits are expired both and we can not make a new application. should we just go to police and show them our new address to let them verify we are living or should we go to Amniat and say we just wanna change the address page from our application? can we print down our new address and just replace this paper with the old one ?
  16. Hello everyone, I have been experiencing ikamet renewal woes, and wondering if anyone can help. My last ikamet 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 would email or text me. I just checked again and found that the system has no record of my application, and when I went to the Kadıköy Göç Idaresi office they told me to start the process again online. Now I see that I cannot use the Renewal process, as the system is telling me to start again as if applying for an ikamet for the first time. My questions are: 1. If I start the process online today, will that "freeze" the number of days that I have overstayed my ikamet? I am planning on showing them a copy of the email that shows I tried to apply for renewal on Dec. 31, the day before my ikamet expired, but of course there's no guarantee they will be receptive. I'm wondering if I should just leave the country now and then come back with a tourist visa and then apply for an ikamet as a first timer, or if I can stay here and continue the process. I would hate to get an interview two months from now and find out that they consider me to have overstayed my old ikamet by a full two months! 2. Once an ikamet application is filed online, how many days can one leave the country? Last year one could spend up to 15 days out of Turkey while waiting for a new ikamet. Is that still true? And can one leave before the interview for those 15 (or however many) days, or can one only leave after the interview, while waiting for the ikamet to arrive? 3. Finally, I have read online that if you overstay an ikamet by 10 days or more you can be banned from the country for a period of time. Is this still true? Thanks to anyone who can share any advice or guidance.
  17. Sooo, I filled my RP application online before my 90/180 days were full. BUT I didn't print it out in same day, because I thought I only need it for my Randevu appoitment..So now I have overstayed and there is no point to go to that appointment (which is next week) because I have overstayed they wouldn't accept it and would send me away. Somebody told me I should go and take a trip to Rhodes for one day, that they will make me sign some paper that i understand i have overstayed and when I'm back I could apply my RP again. But I'm so nervous that if I go to Rhodes can they not let me come back to Turkey anymore or give me a ban or something? Any advices what should I do? Same happened to anybody else? Thank you.

  19. After a lot of stress about the best way to send my 7500USD to Turkey without incurring annoying eft costs or the instability of shifting large amounts of money around to different countries banking systems, I decided i'd just go to the interview in Izmir with my foreign savings bank statement and if they needed me to notarise and translate it or send it to turkish bank account, I could do that on the day or in the 30 days they would have given to get my documentation, But it turns out everything was fine and my interviewer spoke better english than I did and accepted my bank statements. So now I have my short term residence permit without needing a Turkish bank account to send money to and it was very easy! They did ask me about the Turkish bank account and I just said i'd had some difficulty opening an account currently (which was true) One thing I also voluntarily did was print out an everyday foreign bank account i used for free international debit card purchases that listed all of the places i'd shopped aka MIGROS, CAREFOUR, BIMS etc and explained that I used my foreign account for shopping, which could've helped them see that i didn't need a turkish account. Additional tip: My health insurance was with SOMBO JAPAN and it cost me 209 TRY as a 30-35 year old, they had people standing outside the offices offering the insurance, however i bought it somewhere earlier.

  21. I do not want to make the forum busy with a lot of topics. So, I asked here. Even though, it is somewhat related. Assuming this : Someone wants to go to the university in Turkey and he should apply. Also, he wants to come, for instance,5 months before the term begins. If he stays there more than 3 months till apply to the university and then for example after 2 months (all in all 5 months) go to the university the goc fine him because of that 2 months without any excuse? So, it is better for that person to get tourist visa while getting Turkey and then change to the student ikamet, right? Is it possible to change the visa status? (As far as Ken said, it is easy and no problem) I have another question about the legal and illegal work. Is all of the jobs without insurance considered illegal? I mean if someone (like the person I told above) wants to work for 5 months legally, he should find a employee? Which kind of works are legal? Thanks all
  22. If you need to buy health insurance to get your residence permit, you can buy it from our Ankara Sigorta representative. Ankara Sigorta has insurance packages specifically designed to meet the health insurance requirement of foreigners who are applying for a residence permit.

  23. If you want to stay longer than your visa allows, you must get a residence permit. If you don't have your own address and are staying with a friend, you can use the residence of a friend as your residence. Your host will need to create a taahhutname (literally, "an undertaking"), at a noter (notary) office. The taahhutname will be a guarantee, by your host, to be responsible for any debts, fees or fines you incur while staying with them, and ensure you leave Turkey before your residence permit expires. If your host is married, his or her spouse will also have to sign the taahhutname. Your host (and spouse, if applicable), must go with you to the noter. Take your and their identification, and their tapu (property title deed) or a rental contract with their name on it. Once the taahhutname is created, if any of the involved parties don't speak Turkish, an official translator will read it out loud to make sure everyone understands it. Then the parties will sign it. You can then include the taahhutname with your residence permit application as proof of your address. The DGMM may require that the person you are staying with also attend your appointment. So have one of them go with you, or make sure they are immediately available on the day of your appointment. Turkey's Foreigner Communications Center The DGMM has a number you can call to speak to an immigration specialist. Call 157 from any telephone within Turkey. The call will be free. From outside of Turkey, call +90 312 157 1122. Long-distance charges will apply.

However, my personal circumstances have changed which require me to potentially withdraw my application.
