Hi all. I had my appointment on March 26th in Istanbul and still no word from ptt. When I check online it just says application in progress. Is there any way to check the progress? I am getting very anxious...

@Mahmood Unfortunately I received my card and even though I previously had a two year residence, and for this renewal I applied for a two-year residence and bought two-year insurance, I was issued only with a one year visa. I guess this confirms that GOC is no longer issuing more than ONE year short-term residency.

@Ken Grubb yes Ken indeed, that was in Istanbul

@Yc551 Timings are different depending on location. You should contact the GOC call center and ask them. Their number is 157 and they operate in many languages and 24/7.

Well, at least you got a year. For a while there (and maybe still), they were only giving first-time STRPs for five months or so. Anyway, you can apply for another year when the time comes.

@Yc551 Regarding the progress of the residence permits, I would imagine it is somewhere in the Ankara DGMM, in a crate with hundreds of other applications, or on someone's desk waiting to be looked over. At least they are now sending a message which says if it has been evaluated positively, that's a welcome development.

As of November 2018, many GOC offices are starting to apply the following Non Property owners, (i.e. tenants and taahhutname holders):

Europeans and Canada and USA will get 1 year making a first application, renewals can be up to 2 years. Non property owners (i.e. tenants & taahhutname holders) from Middle East and Asian countries will get 6 months residence for first applications and renewals will be a maximum of 1 year.

Only property owners may get offered two years residency for first applications and renewals.
