Mysterious meeting at DGMM in Kadikoy

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I had my meeting in DGMM kadikoy, I went to the meeting and expected that I am going to a certain appointment which it had been sent to me from DGMM.

When I arrived and asked where the meeting should be, the police women at the door told me to stand in a long line and wait to my turn, when my turn came, the DGMM officer asked me if it is renewal application? No it is my first time application. 

It is look like she did not pre read the application. I am wondering if this is the normal way to have a meeting at the DGMM?

For the property owners they should have a document called ( Nummertash ) I am not sure if the pronunciation is right? you could get it from Tapu or Baladiya by showing them the original tapu, which unfortunately we did not had with us. 

Any comment is very appreciated.

Thank you IbrahimAbi, I know what Nummertash is, I just mentioned it for other property owners to be prepared for their meeting with DGMM, but my concern was about my meeting at DGMM in Kadiykoy if it was normal or not, I am writing it again:

You're asking if it is normal for the immigration specialist to interview a foreigner without first reading the application package? At my last appointment I sat down as the immigration specialist was finishing another interview. Then I just gave him the documentation as he asked for it and answered his questions. I would think that, for whether it is a renewal or not, they would just look at the printed copy of the application. I don't think he asked me if it was a first-time application or a renewal.

I would assume a lot of them don't read the application before the interview, and I am sure they can be pretty busy, especially in Istanbul. And besides, they have time during the interview to go over everything with the foreigner. It isn't like a job interview where they would read over everybody's CV before they meet them.

Thanks Ken,

Your answer is relaxing me, as my knowledge about any interview should be prepared from both parties. (it is seems not a real interview but it is checking, if all the required docs are there) 

So if this is the way to make the interview here, I will not worry about my application, because for me the officer looked like she is very experienced and very busy as well.

let us hope alle thinks will go as planned.

They are very busy. Imagine doing their job all day long, all week. I am sure it gets pretty routine. The interviews aren't to screen you out. In fact Turkey is pretty generous in giving people residence permits as long as they meet the requirements, and the requirements are quite reasonable. Even if you are missing a document, like in your case, they give you time to get it.

Did you actually have your interview yet?

Yes I did. it was  on the 11th. of June, that is why I was concerned, because it was for me not like a real interview, but a meeting to check all the required docs are there.

Now with your help I understand the situation better, thanks Ken. 

By the way, do you have any idea why the line 157 does not work? I can not come through , an automatic answering machine say something in Turkish which I did not understand.

Short updating regarding my RP application.

On the 26th of July I got my Resident card, I applied on the 16 of May 2019 , went to the interview on the 11th. June and got my card on the 26th. of July.

I applied in Istanbul and got 2 years residency (first time application).

I would like to thank all the kind members who helped and guided me through my applications time. 

All the best to all of you.

Fada
