  4. 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 Extensions work the same way, with the extension application being done online. But there is no appointment, and no need to go to the DGMM. The system will give you a mailing address for where you need to send your documents and payment receipts. Here's more information on the documents required for the extension of a short-term residence permit. *Some provinces are requiring appointments for residence permit extensions. Others may also require them under certain circumstances. If they do require an appointment, you can select a time and date for it on the online system. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. 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? Thanks. Zohair
  7. Hi all, would like to ask some advice. I am planning to stay in Turkey for an extra six months with a tourist short term residency. My 90 days run out on the 5th of December 2018, and I have booked an appointment on the 4th of December in Istanbul. I have applied for my residency permit to begin on the 29th of December , 2018. I want to leave turkey for Christmas period and come back on the 29th of December to begin my residency permit .. does that sound possible first? I have read that they give you a temporary permit in the mean time.. and that will work for living in Turkey until official documents comes in the mail... I am wondering how long the application process take from the interview usually, also do they keep your passport to process.. will I be able to leave the country and come back on the 29th to obtain my residency permit... it seems a little tricky so would love some advice. Thanks, Tom.
  8. Hey all... Ken asked that I repost this topic. I've attached a .zip archive file that you can download, and find some useful documents for the Ikamet process. It contains a spreadsheet (also in PDF format), which details all of the required documents, expenses, my comments, etc... It also has blank copies of all the forms. Anyway, here is my original post on the issue: We just moved to Antalya, and my family went applied for the Ikamet on Friday. Everything went great! After a week of hard work getting everything prepared, and some fervent prayer, we showed up at the Antalya Emniyet Müdürlüğü Uncalı (police station) at 07:30, and were first in line before about 50-60 others. As soon as they opened up we took our number and then were called to the Ikamet security window, where we handed over all of the paperwork. As a point of note, you will conduct all of your Ikamet business (except payment) at an outdoor covered pavillion at the Emniyet, so dress warmly if you go in the am. Anyway, we went armed to the teeth with every original notarized document you can imagine, organized by category inside an inexpensive little portable file. In addition, I made separate application packages for each of us. Each package consisted of COPIES of original docs, and all packages were identical except for the application forms (i.e. - each packet contained copies of everyone else's documents... maybe overkill, but then, I had some pretty good results and it only cost me a few more pennies in copies). Much to our surprise they didn't ask for a single piece of original evidence to support the application other than the insurance forms. The official wanted the original color-printed health insurance policy forms. Fortunately a friend of mine tipped me off to this, and so before going to the Emniyet I had the insurance guy give me two sets so that I had one to keep, and the other to give. Anyway, there was no scrutiny, no interview, not even a single question. The officer simply reviewed the four applications, handed us the approval forms and directed us to go pay the fee. The only hiccup was that I forgot to get my kid's tax number, which the cashier required before we could pay. So, enroute to the pay window, we took a short 30 minute detour to pickup the girls' tax numbers, but then we went straight back and paid the fee and were done. (As an aside, beginning from last week, you pay all Ikamet (Ikamet and booklet) fees at the Emniyet... so no more running all over the city to pay fees.) So, all in all, the whole process took less than two hours! When we were done we still had enough time to walk to a nearby patisserie for some yummy pastries and çay. One final note. Unless you are older than 65, they require you to have private turkish health insurance. They police actually called my friends $10,000 USD worldwide platinum policy "Trash"! I know the law says you can have international policies, but in this case, local precedence rules. So, save yourself the heartache, don't fight the system, and go and pay the money to get the insurance. It is cheap (~$250/adult/year), and is actually OK insurance for basic stuff. Cheers!

  9. I am looking forward to apply for Turkish residency, I have been to Istanbul before and wanted to apply for residency from there but I have read it takes a lot of time to get an interview slot in Istanbul, so I was looking for other options. Also can anyone help me out with the requirements for getting the citizenship? Every web tells a different requirement. Thank you
  10. So with all the BS that's going on w/the Visa process now...it seems that I need to just go ahead and apply for my residency instead of just using the eVisa everytime. My current tourist Visa will expire in March...probably on my next vacation it would be Jun/Jul...assuming this would be fixed by then, but who knows? The tr evisa site rejects US citizens, but reading all over social media (TripAdvisor in particular), that you can physically buy a visa in Istanbul. I will be back in Turkey in February for 2 weeks vacation. I need the no kidding steps for application...and can this be done in my timeframe of 2 weeks? I have a local house address, my own health insurance & my own bank account with money in it. Spouse & child are Turkish Citizens...and been married for 9.5 years (but that only applies for citizenship I think). Sooo...lay it on me folks!
  11. Does anyone know of a company in Anatalya that can assist me with obtaining a Short Term Permit? Thank you in advance for your reply. tim
  12. I came to Turkey on a Tourist visa and would like to get a residence permit for 2 year period for 'touristic purpose'. I'm currently 'unemployed' but I have more than sufficient funds for the 2 years period in my savings from my past work. On the ikamet website, in the "Information on Income" step of the application process, I have declared the 'income status' and 'source of funds' based on my savings. However, I'm confused about the "Current occupation" part. Should I put it as my 'past profession/field' or as 'unemployed'? (would that affect my chances of getting ikamet) Can anyone please suggest what needs to be done here? I'll be applying from Izmir.
  13. Hello fellow people. I just got an offer to be hired in a French company in Izmir. I am quite excited about it but, my company won't take care of my partner's visa to come along with me. I say partner because we are not married, we've been living together for 2 years though. We are both french citizens. I am confused about the possibility for her to come living in turkey and look for a job. After researches it turns out that a tourism visa won't work, even in the first months (the 90/180 days rule), she should apply for a short term resident permit (am I correct ?) . From the government's website, the rules seem rather strict : http://www.invest.gov.tr/EN-US/INVESTMENTGUIDE/INVESTORSGUIDE/COMINGTOTURKEY/Pages/HowToGetAResidencePermit.aspx According to this website, you should provide several document and these : "Official document regarding the applicant’s ownership of the residence An invitation letter or documents of such written by the person or companies to be contacted". This is the only information I found from a .gov.tr website apart from this declaration of good intention: http://www.goc.gov.tr/icerik6/documents-required-for-residence-permit-applications_914_1017_3605_icerik Then I found your articles : "An Introduction to Residence Permits" and "Documents Required for a Short-term Residence Permit: First-Time Application" and it restored my hope. Applications seem easy in there. So my question is simple. Can I accept the job offer without fearing to see my beloved refused entry at the border ? Thanks in advance for your contribution to calm my fears (I hope you will !!) and anyway thanks for the website, I browsed your articles and they are excellent ! It seems that I found some great info if I have the chance to move to this fabulous country after all ! Regards Antoine.
  14. 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 ?
  15. Hi all, I would like to move to Turkey and my online freelancing income is enough to support myself in a cheap part of Turkey, but I don’t have a year of income saved up. The official requirements for self-employed people look complicated and seem to want me to have a registered company. My income is about $500 per month on average. Also, I have some wealthier relatives who could write statements of financial support and share bank statements if needed. Would that be accepted? I think I would apply for the 1-year tourism RP and live somewhere in the east. Thanks for any info you can provide!
  16. Hello, I live in Balikesir and last month my father came here with a tourist visa of 1 month expiry. He wanted to stay longer so we applied for short time Residence Permit. He got a tax number, opened a bank account and even got a 1 year health insurance. The time we went for the meeting on the given day, the lady in charge told us she wanted a certificate of clean records from us. She told us to go to Istanbul, to our embassy, and get the certificate and then come back again and she will give the permit. I told her it wasn't necessary in the past because she hadn't asked me for the certificate so She said this was the new law and my father has no record in the system and it is his first time applying so they want the certificate. we asked several people and they all are saying there is no such a thing required for applying I wanted to know if it's for sure or what? What can we do? anyone knows about this?
  17. Hellow friends, My Ikamet renewal is due in a month now. I currently hold a short term tourism residence permit. I got the first one for one year as at that time only 1 year were issued but now a 2 year residence permit is also issued and I am interested to get it this time. I wish to ask what are the basic requirements for getting a 2 year residence permit? 1. Health insurance for 2 years (1 + 1 year); 2. Rent contract for 2 year. 3. Bank Statement showing sufficient funds in the account. My landlord is more comfortable making a contract for 1 year and then renew it afterwards. He is a big hesitant doing a 2 year contract and may also require a 4 kira deposit for 2 years contract. The main question I have here is that is it possible to get a 2 year residence permit with a rent contract of 1 year? I mean Health insurance of 2 years but contract of 1 year? Or I need to get a kira contract of 2 years also? Looking forward.
  18. Hey TC, I applied for short RP for my parents but the soonest appointment I can get is Jan 13th which is like 3-5 days after their 90 days tourist visa finish. I was told if you they got an appointment date then visa expiration is not important and that wont be a problem. Is that True ?

  20. Hello everyone, I tried searching for this but I couldnt find a clear answer, so sorry if this has been asked already. I have my RP appointment in October, and I'm trying to sort everything out. It seems like I need to show that I have enough money in strictly a Turkish bank account, but ive been to three banks yesterday (HSBC, ING and Garanti) and they all said there is no way to open a bank account before getting the RP. Am I missing something here? How am I supposed to show that I have enough $$ for a RP in a Turkish bank if I cant open a turkish bank account without a RP? Are there specific banks that allow people to open an account before a RP? Someone told me that before people would just pay an exchange office to make a receipt for however much money was needed, is that still a viable alternative if I cant get a bank to open an account for me? Thanks so much!
  21. Hi all, 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. Hope this helps! Stephanie, Kusadasi
  22. Hi all, please, I need your help to answer my question regarding to short term residency. I renewed my short-term residence permit about more than two months ago, date of issue 22/09/2016 valid from 07/10/2016, I leaved Turkey on 09/10/2016, (about 55 days till now) I wonder how many days left to stay outside turkey before cancelling my permit? some people say 120 day rule cancelled, but, actually, when my colleague returned back to Turkey based on his STRP, in the airport, the employee told that he exceed the limit and his permit is cancelled. thank you in advanced.
  23. Hey fellows, I have a friend who came in Turkey with an 'education' visa last year in September; he was to join language class "Tomer" for one year and then he would be enrolled in university program; so for first year he got a short term 'language course' residence permit and this was applied by university; now after spending one year in Tomer he decided not to continue with his associate degree at the university but he wishes to legally remain in Turkey on 'Tourism' residence permit. His current permit is still valid for 2 months (Short term, for language course). Now if he gathers the required documents needed for short term tourism residence permit; can he apply for the renewal of his ikamet and get it changed to tourism from his current '' Language course '' category. Or he needs to apply again as a 'first application' and since he is legal in Turkey he is eligible to get a tourism residence permit fulfilling the requirements. Or he needs to go back to his country of nationality; get a tourist visa come back and apply for tourism? I hope my question is clear and makes sense. Looking forward for a helpful answer. Regards.
  24. If you apply for a short-term residency permit for a child, then you need to have an Apostilled birth certificate for the child. This needs to be translated and notarized. Apostilled documents can take a while to get from the country that issued the birth certificate, plus extra time to then get it translated to Turkish and notarized, so people need to be aware that this is needed. Also if you have sole custody you need to get this document with Apostille. Ken: Question to ask DGMM: How old can this custody document be (max.) and what date counts application date or start date of RP? Do you have to get a new one for a residency permit renewal? So do you have to order and pay for a new Apostilled custody document every year? If your child has a birth certificate that does not list the father at all because legally the child has no father (can happen if you were not married and the father never declared to be the father), 157 requested to get a letter from the Konsulate, explaining this situation, explaining why the German birth certificate does not list a father at all. This costs 25 EUR to get this written in Turkish by the German Konsulate. It might save you from having to get the Apostilled custody document, but not sure.
  25. According to the Göç İdaresi Genel Müdürlüğü (General Directorate of Migration Management), short-term residence permits will now have a validity period of two years. The "120 Day Rule" which limits the time you can be out of the country to a maximum of 120 days in the previous year has been rescinded. Family residence permits will now have a validity period of three years. I will post more when I learn more, and also update the various articles on these topics.
