Moving to Turkey with Family and Residence Permits

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Ghizlane, welcome to the forum. After you arrive in Turkey you can apply for a residence permit but you will need to establish private medical insurance and show that you have enough money to survive here without working (you do not need a huge sum but you do need to show a regular income, eg pension or other source of regular income).

In order to work you need to get a work permit. These are not normally issued to foreigners unless you can do a job that most Turks cannot do.

Some cities have more foreigners and therefore more applications than others. The system is the same everywhere and RPs are now issued from Ankara, not locally. there is some discretion allowed so there may be minor changes from one area to another, for example some cities may be more lax about proof of funds needing to be translated etc.
