  2. This is a tutorial published by the Turkish immigration office. It shows how to use the residence permit application website at https://e-ikamet.goc.gov.tr/ to apply for a student residence permit to live as a student Turkey.

  3. This guide is about the student residence permit, which you can apply for after entering Turkey with a student visa. To learn about the student visa, see Student Visas: Eligibility, the Application Process, and What to do When You Arrive in Turkey. Contents What is a Student Residence Permit? An Overview of the Application Process Required Documents at a Glance Step 1: Prepare for Your Online Application Step 2: Apply Online Step 3: Create Your Application Package Step 4: Go to Your Appointment Step 5: Receive Your Student Residence Permit Extending Your Student Residence Permit Student Residence Permit Application Video Assistance and Support What is a Student Residence Permit? A student residence permit is a biometric identity card which enables you to enroll in an accredited school or university and take courses until you graduate. You can get a student residence permit after you've formally enrolled in a school which offers a curriculum leading to graduation and a certificate or diploma. If you're in another country and a school in Turkey has accepted you as a student, you must first apply for a student visa at a Turkish embassy or consulate in your home country (or the country where you're living), then travel to Turkey and enroll at your school before you apply for your student residence permit. Student residence permits are issued by the Göç İdaresi Genel Müdürlüğü (Directorate General of Migration Management). You'll also hear this organization called the Göç İdaresi, the Göç, or the immigration office. You'll need a student residence permit to attend Primary and secondary education Two-year associate programs Four-year baccalaureate (bachelor's) degree programs Postgraduate master's degree programs. When a Student Residence Permit is Not Required You don't need a student residence permit for courses you sign up for one-by-one, and which aren't part of a formal curriculum leading to graduation and a diploma. For example, if you just want to take Turkish courses without formally enrolling in a bachelor's degree program at a university, you can enter Turkey with an e-visa and get a one-year short-term residence permit. You would use "learning Turkish" as your reason for getting the short-term residence permit. If You're Already in Turkey and Have a Residence Permit If you already have a residence permit, you can transfer from whatever type of residence permit you have to a student residence permit. It will depend on the school you're going to. If the school says you can take courses with a short-term residence permit, then you won't have to transfer to a student residence permit. No Working Rights The student residence permit doesn't give you the right to work. If you want to work, you'll need a separate work permit. There are rules concerning how many hours you can work as a student, so if you're going to work, contact your foreign student affairs office. Duration The student residence permit is valid for a maximum of one year or until your official graduation date, whichever is sooner. Your official graduation date is the one in your school records, not necessarily the date you want to graduate. On the day after your official graduation date, your student residence permit will expire. You'll have ten days to leave Turkey or apply for a short-term residence permit. If you're unable to graduate on time for whatever reason, you can extend your student residence permit one last time until your new graduation date, as long as the final extension doesn't exceed one year. When to Apply You must apply for your student residence permit after you formally register at your school, and within 30 days of arrival with your student visa. Residence Permit Law The law concerning residence permits is Law No. 6458, Law on Foreigners and International Protection. Go Back to the Top An Overview of the Application Process The residence permit application process always begins on the e-ikamet (e-residence) website at https://www.e-ikamet.goc.gov.tr/. "İkamet" means "residence." The online application system consists of several pages on which you enter your personal information. At the end of the process, you'll select an appointment date and time for an interview at the local immigration office. Then you download, print, and sign your İkamet İzni Kayıt Formu (Residence Permit Application Form). If you need any other documents, you can collect them during the time between your online application and your appointment. On your appointment day, you'll go to the immigration office and present your application package to an immigration specialist. If all required documents are there, your application will be accepted, and your residence permit card will be printed and mailed to your school where you can pick it up. Note: Some universities are authorized to accept student residence permit packages and send them to the immigration office. If your school is one of these, you won't have to go to an appointment. Istanbul Residents If you're applying in Istanbul, you may not get the option to set up an appointment using the online system. Instead, the Istanbul immigration office will send you an SMS message telling you your appointment date and time. It may also tell you that they want you to bring additional documentation to your appointment (more on this later). Go Back to the Top Required Documents at a Glance Contact your school's foreign student affairs office for their list of required documents. Below is the usual list: Passport Copy of your passport, including the ID page and photo, validity dates, and stamp showing entry into Turkey Four biometric photos Tax number Student enrollment document Scholarship document (if any) Health insurance (not required if under 18 years of age) Proof of address Proof of financial ability Letter of consent (from parents if you're under age 18) Taahhütname (legal declaration), only if you're under 18 and have a sponsor in Turkey, declaring that they'll cover your expenses I'll cover each of these documents in the application steps below. Go Back to the Top Step 1: Prepare for Your Online Application Coordinate with your school's foreign student affairs office. They'll assist you with getting the documents you need for the online application. Passport You need the passport number, issue date, and expiration date. Tax Number To pay the fees for your residence permit application, you need a vergi numarası (tax number). Go to the vergi dairesi (tax office) or the maliye (finance office), which will have a tax office inside. Show the clerk your passport and ask for a tax number. After you fill out a form, they'll give you one immediately, for free. Learn more about getting a tax number. Photos You'll need four (4) biometric photos. The photos must be 5 cm in width, 4.5 cm in height Taken within the last six months Full frontal view White background In color Professional quality (no selfies) You can have the photos taken at any photo studio. Just say "ikamet izni" (residence permit). They'll know what you need. Health Insurance As a student, you qualify for Turkey's comprehensive health insurance plan, called Genel Sağlık Sigortası (General Health Insurance) managed by the Sosyal Güvenlik Kurumu (Social Security Administration). This plan will cover you for one year at a time. You'll have 90 days to join it. If you don't join in the SGK plan within 90 days, or choose not to participate, you'll have to buy private health insurance. Learn more about Turkey's general health insurance plan. Bilateral Health Care Coverage Agreements Some countries have a bilateral agreement with Turkey, which allows their citizens to be covered by the SGK insurance plan while living in Turkey (and vice versa). If you're a citizen of one of these countries, contact your government's health insurance representative to get the required form. Then take that form to an SGK office, and get a sicil numarası (registration number). You'll use this number while applying online. Learn more about health insurance under bilateral agreements. Private Health Insurance from a Turkish Company Most insurance companies offer a cheap health insurance plan which meets the minimum government requirements for health insurance. These policies are often called yabancı sağlık sigortası, (foreigner health insurance), or expat health insurance policies. You can get one by walking into an insurance company office, providing some necessary information about yourself, and paying the premium. It takes around 45 minutes. You can also buy it online and have the policy sent to you by e-mail and/or mail or courier. If you're applying for a two-year residence permit, you can buy two policies, one for the first year, and one for the second. Ask for one copy in Turkish and the other in English. You'll need the information from these policies when applying online, and you'll include the Turkish language policy in your application package. Learn more about buying health insurance online. Your Address Information If you're staying in housing provided by your school, contact the foreign student affairs office for a document you can use to prove your address. If you're staying in your own place, you'll need your rental agreement. For now, you just need to know what your exact address is. All legal addresses in Turkey (including rooms in student housing) are recorded in a central address database. The residence permit application system connects to this database. So you'll enter your address by "drilling down" through a series of drop-down menus until you get to your apartment or room number. Later, when you go to your appointment, you'll submit the address document to the immigration specialist. Learn more about proving your address as a student. Go Back to the Top Step 2: Apply Online The only official website for applying for a residence permit is at https://e-ikamet.goc.gov.tr/. It has an English option. You can also view it using the Chrome browser with the Google Translate application. When you start your application, you enter your passport and contact information. The system will send you a verification e-mail with a link to click on. When you click on it, you'll be returned to the application system and given an application number. Keep that number, since you'll need it if you stop and continue your application later. If you have the documents you need, the online application should take less than an hour. Unfortunately, some people have problems using it. For suggestions about what to do if you have a problem with the system, see: e-İkamet: How to use Turkey's Online Residence Permit Application System to Apply for Your Residence Permit. Your Appointment Date and Time Some universities are authorized to receive your application package and make the application for you. In that case, you won't need to go to a separate appointment at the immigration office. Your university will take care of it for you, and the immigration office will mail your student residence permit to you at your school. If you must go to an appointment, you'll create one at the end of the online application. The system may give you a choice of dates and times, or give you a fixed date and time, or you may see this message: Randevu Tarihi GİGM Tarafından Belirlenecektir (the appointment date will be determined by the immigration office). It means the immigration office will contact you by SMS or e-mail, depending on your contact preferences, and give you an appointment date and time. So keep an eye on your mobile phone messages. Learn more about residence permit applications in Istanbul. Downloading Your Application Form At the end of the online application process, there is a link to download your completed İkamet İzni Kayıt Formu (Residence Permit Application Form). So download it, sign it, and add the original to your application package. Print a second copy of the first page of the application document and keep it with you, with your passport, to keep you legal in Turkey until your appointment date. The first page of your downloaded application will have the date and time of your appointment (if you were able to make one) and the address of the immigration office where you need to go. It will also have the residence permit fees you need to pay (see "Paying the Fees" below). Go Back to the Top Step 3: Create Your Application Package In this step, you'll gather whatever documents you still need for your application package. Proof of Residence If you're renting a residence A notarized copy of your rental contract. You can get this by taking your rental contract to a noter (notary). To learn more, see: Proving You Have a Place to Live as a Renter. If you're staying in a dormitory A document, from your school, that you live in a room provided by the school. If you're staying at a hotel You can use a hotel as your legal address. You'll need an e-signed, or stamped/sealed and signed, letter, on hotel letterhead, from the hotel which shows your intended dates of residence. To learn more, see: Proof of Address When Staying at a Hotel. If you're staying with a friend If you're using the home of a Turkish or foreign friend(s), your friend(s) will need to go with you to a notary. They must bring their identification and proof of their address (either a property title deed or rental contract) and sign a taahhütname (legal declaration). In this document, the renters or owners of the property where you're staying promise to make sure you depart Turkey when your residence permit expires (unless you extend it), and pay any debts you fail to pay. Each owner or renter of the property must sign the taahhütname. Your hosts don't have to go to your residence permit appointment with you—just put the taahhütname into your residence permit application package. To learn more, see: Proof of Address When Staying with a Friend. Utility bills: If you're renting your own place and have utility bills in your name showing service at your address, add them to your application package. Proof of Financial Ability This is documentary proof that you have enough money to live on while going to school in Turkey. It can be Bank statements for the last six months (can be from a bank in your home country) A letter from parents promising to take care of your expenses A taahhütname, which is a Turkish legal declaration by someone in Turkey who is promising to take care of your expenses To learn more, see: How to Prove You Have Enough Money to Live On. Paying the Fee The only fee you'll pay as a student is the değerli kağıt bedeli or kart bedeli (card printing fee). For 2021, it's ₺125. How and Where to Pay the Fee You can pay online, with a credit card, at the end of your online application. You can also pay at participating banks, including Vakıfbank, ZiraatBank, and Halkbank, or any vergi dairesi (tax office). You'll need a copy of the first page of your application, your passport, and your tax number. Just show the clerk the first page of your application, and they'll know what to do. If you pay at a bank, they'll need a payment code for the card printing fee to make sure it goes to the correct account. The payment code is 9207. Include the original of the payment receipt in your application package and keep a copy for your records. Go Back to the Top Step 4: Go to Your Appointment Finding the Immigration Office Your appointment date, time, and location will be printed at the bottom of the first page of your residence permit application. You can also find the immigration offices by searching for the Göç İdaresi Genel Müdürlüğü and your province in Google Maps. If there is an immigration office in your district, use your district's name. Make sure the address in Google Maps is the same as the one on your residence permit application form, because sometimes the offices move. Your Appointment During your appointment, the immigration specialist will go over your application package to make sure everything is there. Missing Documents If the immigration specialist finds that any documents are missing or inadequate, they'll give you time to get them and bring them back. You don't need another appointment for this; you can just walk in and ask for the immigration specialist who's handling your application. The Residence Permit Application Document At the end of the appointment, you'll receive an İkamet İzni Müracaat Belgesi (Residence Permit Application Document). This document proves your application is complete and serves as a "temporary residence permit" to keep you legally in Turkey even after your current residence permit expires. It's valid for 90 days or until the day you receive your residence permit card. Leaving Turkey Before You Receive Your Residence Permit Card: If your current residence permit expires and you need to leave Turkey, you can stay out of the country for up to 15 days and re-enter without a visa, provided you have your Residence Permit Application Document, your passport, and the fee payment receipts. To learn more, see: Leaving Turkey before your appointment, or Leaving Turkey after your appointment If You Receive a Communique Document Instead of a Residence Permit Application Document The Istanbul and Ankara immigration offices (and perhaps offices in other provinces) may give you a Tebliğ-tebellüğ Belgesi (communique document) instead of a Residence Permit Application Document. The communique states that the immigration office has received your application and that it will process it. It keeps you legally in Turkey until your residence permit card arrives (provided you also have your passport with you). But if your current residence permit expires and you leave Turkey and return before your residence permit card arrives, it won't allow you to re-enter Turkey without a visa. To leave Turkey and return, you'll need to call the immigration office's helpline at 157 and get an e-mail address to request a Residence Permit Application Document. They'll send a reply e-mail with the document attached. To learn more about leaving Turkey if you get a communique document at the end of your appointment, see: Leaving Turkey After Your Residence Permit Appointment with a Tebliğ Tebellüğü Belgesi (Communique Document). Go Back to the Top Step 5: Receive Your Student Residence Permit Either you or someone with power of attorney to receive your residence permit must be present at your address when the residence permit card arrives. You must show your passport or other identification and sign for it. If you aren't home, the PTT will keep your card at the local PTT branch for seven days. After that, it will be returned to the local immigration office where you can go, without an appointment, and pick it up. Checking the Status of Your Application After your appointment, you can use the e-ikamet website to see if your application review is still in progress, if it's been approved, or if there's a problem with your application. SMS Message You Might Receive 2019-123-4567- nolu ikamet izni talebiniz olumlu degerlendirilmistir. Your residence permit request 2019-123-4567 numbered has been evaluated positively. B001 If you receive the message that your residence permit's been approved, then soon after, you'll receive this message: Adınıza, 2345678 barkod nolu gönderi kabul edilmiştir. www.ptt.gov.tr adresinden gönderinin durumunu takip edebilirsiniz. B001 This message comes from the PTT, to let you know that they're delivering your residence permit card. Once you've received the message that your residence permit card has been given to the PTT, you can check on its delivery using the barcode here: https://www.turkiye.gov.tr/ptt-gonderi-takip Learn more about how to check the status of your residence permit and receiving your residence permit card in the mail. Go Back to the Top Extending Your Student Residence Permit You can apply to extend your student residence permit within 60 days of the expiration of your current permit. Extension applications work the same way as first-time applications and require an appointment (unless your school has other arrangements). In addition to the usual documents, bring your current residence permit to your appointment.

  4. You can get a student visa only after you've received a letter of acceptance from an accredited school or university in Turkey. Once you've received your letter of acceptance, you can apply for your student visa at the local Turkish embassy or consulate.

How to Get a Student Visa and Use it to Go to Turkey 1. Find an accredited school or university you want to attend and apply to become a student. Use the internet to search for a school or university you might want to attend.

  5. I applied for student residence permit. When I downloaded the application, I saw a mistake written there it’s about profession it’s written as "hairdresser" but I'm sure I wrote "student." What should I do ? Is my residency permit going to be canceled?
  6. My situation is somewhat complex. My student permit is valid until January 2021. However, I defend my thesis and finished my study. On the other hand, I still have not finished the obligation (clearance process) from the university. I asked from the university and they said that "I checked, you have just an Information technology obligation. Graduation process is continuing. Your graduation date will be 05 June 2020 when the process complete. " I doubt whether I stayed illegally in country! I left Turkey on 30 June 2020. Nobody told me anything in border. I turned back to Turkey on 15 August 2020 and again officer did not tell me anything. I checked my e devlet and it is written my residence status as open (AÇIK). By the way, what should I do to apply for touristic visa. Also, my passport has just 7 months for expiring!

  12. I am a student and married. Should I get residence permit for my wife or she should stay there under my residence permit card? I know that she should have an insurance. But, what about a residence permit 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?
  13. 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 ?
  14. Hello I am an Architect from Pakistan. I want to join a short term course to learn wood work( furniture making) in Turkey which lasts max of 3 months time. I cant find any academies in turkey which provide short courses in Interior Design, Furniture Making or any technical education, as in other countries. Other than this i will be visiting Turkey for the first time in 2017. I want to spent the whole month for which my visa would be applicable. Hotel stay is not affordable for 30 days so i searched the internet for renting a flat or apartment. I found many sites and accommodation options as well but i am not sure whether they are safe or not? How do i find a safer option? Additionally i would like to ask that is it possible to find jobs on a visit visa? as i am aware that employment in Turkey is quite difficult as they prefer Turkish skilled citizens first, but i want to try because there are almost no job opportunities on internet for International candidates. Are there any organizations or firms/agents in Turkey who could search for job or provide any arrangements in helping getting a job? Thankyou Looking forward
  15. I used 60 days from an evisa for January and February. I was then on a students residence permit from 1 March to 1 June. During June I thought I was able to use the last 30 days from the evisa from earlier in the year. In July I started a new evisa and over July, August and September - I've probably used about 75 days, as I went away for a few days here and there. When I left Istanbul I was stopped and fined by the customs. They took a June as part of my new evisa, and said I've overstayed, so I missed my flight. Then he ripped up the paper with the fine and so he told me to book a new flight. Am I banned? How can I re-enter?
