  1. 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
  2. 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?.
  3. Hi everyone, I hope I can get some answers over here. I'm married with a Turkish citizen so I got a family ikamet 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... Thanks

  7. 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?
  8. 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!

  11. Hello, 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? Thanks

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. 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!

  19. 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
  20. 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!
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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 ?
  25. 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!
