  1. I have an issue some of you might help with. I applied for an extension of my short-term residence permit months ago. When I logged into e-ikamet portal to check my application status, I received the information: Kayıt durumunuz : It has been concluded. It is required to apply to Provincial Directorate of Migration Management I called 157 immediately, and they were not very helpful. Do any of you know what this may mean? My application was “Under Assesment” till today afternoon (I have been checking multiple times a day). I didn’t receive any text message or e-mail from the Göç idaresi yet. Do any of you have a similar experience? Any tips, apart from actually going to my Migration office first thing Monday morning?
  2. Hello readers I want to know if it's possible to change your short term residence permit to student? If yes what documents do I need?
  3. Applying today for my gf who is a Thai Citizen and is allowed 30 day visa free entry. I am US Citizen and have 90 days. She has 14 days left on her visa. We would both like to apply for the 1 year RP. A few questions in this regard. 1. After applying online, how long until granted an appointment? 2. Can appointments be made in any city in Turkey or have to be in Ankara? 3. We are renting an AIrbnb, month to month..would that be acceptable? 4. Can I provide financial documentation on her behalf if requested as Airbnb is under both our names? 5. We both have travel insurance..will that be adequate? It is a year policy but renewed monthly.
  4. I need to provide police clearance certificate from Turkey. In order to get this certificate, I have to provide identity card that I wonder could be Turkish identity card for foreigner or my own nationality identity card. If it Turkish foreigner identity card " kimlik". Then I will be in the complex situation. Since it was 10 year ago ( 18 years old) I lived in Ankara as Student for only a year ( now I am 28 @[email protected]) and both residence permit and ID card I believe lost ages ago. I hope you guys can give me any advice. In case they need my ID number, how I can I find my number. As I remember I need to had my residence permit done after that got foreigner ID number.
  5. The nufus office shows a different address to the electric office and electric bills not in my name which address is required on the application and rental agreement ?
  6. I'm really frustrated so please excuse my tone in advance. To start I want to say that I'm the guy who does everything by-the-book, and I always make sure that all the i's are dotted and all the t's are crossed. Whenever I go to any government organization I take my entire life's document history with me. This is why I have a short-term residence permit AND a work permit. I've maintained both for 4 years now, but just now 60 days BEFORE the renewal date of the Residence Permit, I log in to e-ikamet and get a message that I do not have a valid residence permit "Girmis oldugunuz bilgilerle eslesen, geçis yapabileceginiz herhangi bir ikamet izni kaydi bulunamamistir. Bilgilerinizi kontrol ederek tekrar deneyiniz.", so I go to e-devlet (Göç İdaresi Genel Müdürlüğü İkamet İzni Kişisel Bilgi Sorgulama Sonuçları) to check on my residence permit, and I get a message that there is no information "Statü bilgisi bulunamadı.". I called 157-English they said that because I have a Work Permit my Residence Permit was cancelled. I called 157-Arabic they said I have to update my records at Göç İdaresi, but even though I insisted that none of my information changed for three years, they couldn't tell me what to update. Just to list some of my issues with this one-sided approach to residence cancellation without notification: Now I have no proof that I live in Istanbul because my work permit is from Kocaeli which is where I work. My bank never accepted the work permit as proof of residence or identification. Istanbul Nufus probably will no longer be my contact because I would not have an Istanbul ID When my work permit is under renewal (takes 3-4 months) I cannot travel anymore - before i was using the residence permit during that time, and vice versa. and the big one for me is I have no idea what to do for my son's Residence Permit that is linked to mine and expires on the same day. I've sorry for venting here but I've always received good and professional advice. Hope someone has some info and can clarify and recommend what I can do. I will be going to Göç İdaresi tomorrow even though I feel they will confiscate my card even though it is still valid for 2 more months.
  7. I saw on a U. The Turkish State Department link that short term residence permits for tourist reasons will be stopped. Anyone else see this?
  8. How to get residence permit for my child under 18 years? I got my residence permit some months ago. Now I need to get one for my child who is 16 years old. I am abroad most of the time. What I have to do? Where to start? Is a shorter way to do it? What are the documents to submit?
  9. After submitting my completed short-term resident permit application online, I was having the hardest time on the website selecting an available date for my interview in Ankara. I called the 157 number (which has been a HUGE help and they answer every question patiently as you complete your application) - and they explained you can not register correctly when using a Mac computer. THEN, it still didn't work for me, and so my fiance tried changing the calendar to Turkish instead of English. THEN and only then did it work. So, wanted to let the community know - even if it says dates are blocked off - they are NOT! There is a systematical error with the calendars translating between languages. Change your calendar to Turkish language (upper right hand corner) and you will find many dates available.
  10. My husband was to the first time residence permit interview last Wednesday. He asked during the interview for a letter to travel outside for 15 days. the officer told him he can not get immediately, he will receive a SMS message in 2 working day to come again and get the letter. Unfortunately he got nothing yet. we are planning to leave on the 4th of October. He has already used his 90 days visa. if he does not get such a letter and leave on the 4th. of October, Is he going to pay a fine for the exceeding days? Can he get this letter from ANY DGMM office in Istanbul without this SMS?
  11. Hi all, I am getting ready to travel to Istanbul and rent an apartment so I can apply for Residence Permit once I arrive. I was reading Ken's topic on Documents Required for a First-time Short-term Residence Permit. Under First-time Application > "A notarized rental contract for the property you are renting, and a copy of your landlord's ID card" how can I get a landlord's ID card?, is this normal to ask for a copy?, and if I am renting from a company, how does that work?.
  12. 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.

  17. Hi. It will be my first time to go to Turkey, if ever I want to extend my stay can I apply for Short Term Residence Permit?
  18. Apologies if these questions have appeared elsewhere: I searched and didn't see anything come up. I'm interested in going to Turkey to study the language, and I've seen reference to a specific visa type for that. I would appreciate if anyone could help me with the following questions: Is the visa to study Turkish considered a "Short Term" visa or "Student" visa? Does this change whether I have to apply online/at a consulate or in person/online? How long is the typical length of this visa, given that the courses will be booked monthly? I have seen that it can only be renewed once. Does anyone have any experience with this visa (good or bad)? Is the process of getting a residence permit on this visa any different? Is it possible to leave the country and return on a tourist visa if this is close to expiring? Thanks for any input you all may be able to offer!
  19. I recently tried the residence permit application online but is giving me errors whenever i reached to the travel document portion. Isn't allowing my passport number and is the same passport I used to enter Turkey three days ago. Please I need help if anyone had this incident before.
  20. I'm applying for a short-term RP. I called 157 and was told to go to www.e-ikamet.goc.gov.tr. When I type this I am told there is a privacy error and my connection is not private. (I only get this message when trying to reach that particular site). I've tried logging on and off again but to no avail, so far. There is another site: e-ikamet.com It gives information about what documents are needed and the cost of the RP but it doesn't provide an application procedure. Can anyone provide any advice on how I can proceed and which of the two sites is authentic?

  23. If you want to live in Turkey permanently, or just stay for a while beyond the duration of your visa, must apply for a short-term residence permit. This is the only way you can stay in Turkey after your visa expires. You may apply for a short-term residence permit if you are conducting scientific research own real estate want to establish a business or commercial connections participate in on-the-job training programs attend educational or similar programs as part of a student exchange program or agreements to which Turkey is a party to want to stay beyond the duration of a visa, for tourism purposes * intend to receive medical treatment (provided they are not a public health threat) are required to stay in Turkey pursuant to a request or a decision of judicial or administrative authorities attend a Turkish language course attend an education or a research program, an internship, or a course through the agency of a public institution in Turkey want to stay in Turkey after graduating from a higher education program in Turkey. * If you just want to live in Turkey, for no other reason than that you want to live here, you'll apply for a short term residence permit for "tourism purposes." That is all would you need to rent a place to live and stay. Duration Short-term residence permits are issued for a minimum of one month, and a maximum of two years. When it is within 60 days of expiration, you can extend it (see below). In no case will the expiration date of any residence permit be beyond the date 60 days prior to your passport's expiration date. Your residence permit may also be considered invalid if your health insurance policy expires. Online Application Procedure Both first-time and renewal applications are done online, at e-ikamet.goc.gov.tr (ikamet is Turkish for “residence permit”). Select either “First Application” or “Application for Extension” as soon as you enter the e-ikamet site. If you have to buy health insurance, or have documentation saying you are exempt because of a bilateral agreement, get your policy or the bilateral agreement information before you apply online, because you will need it as you apply. Also have your photos taken according to requirements. Fill out the various forms and submit them, and upload a scan of one of your photos. The system will tell you what documents you need, what fees need to be paid and where to pay them. First-time Application If it is a first-time application, the system will also give you an appointment date and time to go to the local DGMM office with your required documents. During your appointment, an immigration expert will go over your package and make sure there are no missing documents. Keep in mind that your application is not considered submitted until all required documentation is submitted with your application. Here's more information on the documents required for a first-time application for a short-term residence permit. 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. 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.

  24. When you apply for a residence permit in Turkey, on their online system, you will be asked to state that you can support yourself financially during the validity period of your residence permit. This declaration is often sufficient. However, when you go to your residence permit appointment, the immigration specialist at the Göç İdaresi Genel Müdürlüğü (Directorate General of Migration Management, or DGMM) may ask you for proof that you can support yourself. So be prepared in case they do. You can express your ability to support yourself with anything which provides income, from any country. This may include incoming rents from properties you own, business profits, a trust fund or other income from an estate, or savings. If another person is providing your financial support, you must get a notarized document stating this. Money in a Turkish Bank Until recently, the standard of proof that you had enough money to live on was the equivalent of $500 USD in a Turkish bank account, for each month you wanted to live in Turkey. While this standard hasn't been "abolished," per se, the immigration specialists at the DGMM don't insist that everybody meet it. Of course, if you have this amount of money in a Turkish bank, you'll have no problems convincing the immigration specialist that you can support yourself for a year in Turkey. But you probably won't need that much. And if you apply for a two-year residence permit, you definitely won't need to come up with 24 x $500 = $12,000! Money in a Foreign Bank You can show bank statements from your foreign bank account. Rental Income For rental income, the DGMM may ask for the title deed of your rental property, and a rent contract not older than two years. If you property is being managed by someone else, you can also present documents for the management of the property showing incoming rents. Pensions If you have income from a pension, you can use a “proof of income” letter or pension certificate from the institution which provides your retirement income, or whatever documentation has been provided to you concerning your pension. It should say how much monthly income you will be receiving, and for how long. The DGMM may also ask for a bank statement showing receipt of the income. Investment Portfolios If you have an investment portfolio which generates dividends or interest, you can also use this as proof of income. The same rules apply for investment portfolios as they do for pensions (see above). Ownership of a Company If you own a company and receive income from it, the DGMM may ask for and accept the following: Copy of tax documents Entry in the trade registry gazette Certificate of signatures, balance sheet, and income statement for the last three years, as approved by the tax office or certified public accountants Current year's trial balance sheet Company registration certificate Credit Card Statements You may also show credit card statements displaying account activity, such as payments and expenditures, for the previous six months. Family Residence Permits To apply for a family residence permit, you must be able to show a monthly income equivalent to at least the minimum wage for duration of the residence permit. For each family member, you must be able to show an additional monthly income of at least one third of the minimum wage (See "External Links" below). Long-term Residence Permits To apply for a long-term residence permit, will need to show a continuous income (for life), such as a pension, or proceeds from investments, equivalent to at least the minimum wage in Turkey. Documents from Other Countries Documents obtained from outside of Turkey must have an apostille. Then they must be translated by an official translator and notarized by a Turkish noter. However, DGMM officials are known to be lenient on this, and may just accept a printout of your bank account for the last six months, or a printout of a document showing your income. But to be on the safe side, get an apostille for your documents just in case, especially if you are a new arrival to Turkey. 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. Need to buy the required health insurance coverage for your residence permit?

  25. I keep reading the process is simple but then when it comes down to to going to places and getting all the stamps, some have suggested that you need a person who speaks and/or understands Turkish. How do i find someone like that if it is indeed a need?
