Its my 5th year renewal of RP, every year I was able to do my application online and then sent all my document by post. As I was told today Il Goc idairesi in Bakirkoy was close down and apparently everybody must come to an inteview now. After I submitted my aplication I waited 1 week for a message to come giving me an appointment which was 1 month later.As almost everybody I was having problems with the website as well giving me errors all the time, but after 2 hours I was able succesfully submit my aplication ( problem seems to be solved when you use turkish language only ) I brought all the documents required on the website and yet left with missing documents and have to go back again. Every years they asked me for a photocopy of the passaport - translated and notariazed - this year they didnt accept it and asked for a photocopy of the passport with all entries and exits from turkey (didnt accepted notarized version as it was only reqiered when mailing documents by post ) . As I live with my turkish fiancee as every year we just get notarized paper saying we live together and he is responsible for me, this year on the top of it, they wanted paper from e-devlet saying he is single. I am trying to get 2 years RP so lets how it will go. I have attached their original paper of documents required, so hope it will help

Actually it was that list I have been needing. When I have questions I call 157, and they do a great job, but they are often reading from a database and sometimes can't answer my question. So I go to the DGMM myself and ask an immigration specialist.

What I am planning is a list of documents, including those which are always needed, those needed for certain types of residence permits, and those the DGMM might ask for in addition, with an explanation regarding what these documents are and how to get them. Until now, all I had was what Turkey Central members said they were asked for. Now, thanks to you, I have an actual list.

So yes, this is going to help a lot of people. Thanks again, Dominika! :kicking:

Hi everyone,

Any advice on how to pay ikamet fees prior to Randevu please ? I just want to avoid a second trip to the government office because it’s very far from where I live.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Meriem, you can pay your fees online directly on the website where you applied for the RP. You wont be able to make a payment till your appoitment is given. If your appoitment was given after you RP has expired website wont alow you to make a payment online.You can also find any vergi daire (tax office) near your home take your application with you as they will neeed your aplication number for a reference and pay it directly there. I paid the fees one hour before my appoitment was given as Il God idairesi and Vergi diresi was near each other .

Thanks for your reply Dominika...just to clarify - it is my first residence permit application, I just arrived beginning of june 2019. My appointment is on the 24/07 in Beylikdüzü Istanbul (in couple of days). I was wondering whether there’s a possibility to pay there (maybe go a bit early) or should I pay at tax office ?

also, is the tax office called “vergi dairesi”?

Thanks again!

Have you tried to pay on e-ikamet website? Yes tax office name in turkish is vergi dairesi. As long as I know you u cant pay there, two years ago I was sent to tax office (vergi dairesi) when I was in Il Goc idairesi in Fatih. You can also try one of the goverment banks like ziraat bank etc, I read somewhere you can pay as well. I have tried to pay in the bank 3 years ago, but was impossible cause the fee was in dolar and I could have paid wrong amount of money. that time there was not fix fee in turkish lira, as rules changes in Turkey every year , you can find your fee on your  aplication so maybe it could be possilbe as well to pay there

Thanks again Dominika for the effort to explain...My application form indicates two types of fees: -Harç Bedeli (fee amount) 61.01TL and -Ikamet izin belgesi...(RP doc fees) 89.00TL. Is that all ? Or do I still have to find out about the residence fee itself based on the country I’m from. The reason I’m trying to avoid to pay online cuz I’ve been a banker for the past 10 years (in canada) and I’ve been witnessing so many frauds that happened to my clients, therefore I’m trying to be careful with that...so I’d rather give money in person to be on the safe side.

Normally aplication fee is calculated automatically based on the country you come from, 89 tl is for the card, but to be honest 61,01 tl sounds weird for me as I paid more than 400 tl for 1 year - but I dont know what country you come from coz of this I cant comment much. You  pay what is written on the application and nothing extra! I have paid already twice through their website and I havent got any problems so far, but I can completly understand you - this is Turkey :) if my visa wouldnt have expired before my appoitment I would pay it online again as it saves you plenty of time! When you go to tax office there is always big queue - last time I waited more than 1 hour. But as I mentioned it before you can try to go to the ziraat bank and try to pay it there.

You dont need to go to Fatih, you can find any tax office near your home and pay there - Fatih is very far from Beylikduzu ( I assume you live there coz of your RP appoitment)  -I just checked on google and there is tax office in Avcilar - in the tax office follow sign for VEZNE - take your number and wait :) (dont forget to take your aplication with you, they will give you two saparate receipts). Your welcome, I am happy to help you Meriem :) wishing you best of luck

If for some reason you can't pay the fees and get the receipts before your appointment, there is no need to panic. The immigration specialist will still do the interview. At the end of the interview they will tell you to go and pay the fees and come back with the receipts. Then they will give you your temporary residence permit. Good luck from me too, Meriam! :)
