What Document do we need for financial proof for the Family Residency Permit?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm wondering what documents you need for the financial proof for the family residency?

Quote

Approved and e-signed/signed document which states that financial capacity is to be provided sufficiently and regularly throughout the stay

If my sponsor doesn't have a job but rather savings and we put it in the bank to show for the interview, is there a certain amount of time it has to be in your account, or is it fine to show them on the day your balance and thats that? Is there any further checks in the future or is it all on that day?

What documents do we need to show and sign? and where do we need to get them signed? In the interview or before?

 

Thank you,

Those who apply for a Family RP are often foreign ladies married to a Turkish Citizen. In such cases it's normal for the GOC to want to see his wages slips for the past 6 months. If using savings only then they will expect to see that the required amount has been in their account for a while,again maybe 6 months & that they have enough to satisfy the FRP requirements which is around 25,000tl for each year the FRP will run,which can be up to 3 years if accepted. Health cover needs to be his SGK with you named on his cover.

If it's savings, I'll repeat what Redders has recommended in his files in Doc Martin's Surgery for Expats. Take the amount of savings and divide it by 12, and you can offer that monthly amount for what you will have to live on. And if it is savings, you can't just put a lot of money into an account. Unfortunately a lot of people did that by borrowing the money, getting their permit, then taking the money out and repaying the loan. Then, having no money to live on, they went to work illegally.

So the Directorate General of Migration Management (DGMM) is going to want to make sure the money you say you have is really yours, and they're going to want to see where it came from. At minimum you're going to need to have the last six months of your bank account statements showing the deposits and withdrawals. It doesn't have to be from a Turkish bank account. A regular copy of this is enough. Take that to your appointment. If they want more documentation, they will tell you either by SMS message before your appointment, or during your appointment. Other things they might want to see is a letter from an employer, or from your bank. If they do ask for additional documentation, they will give you time to get it.

hi there

i am married to a türk citicen..

in our case it like this that he doesnt earn money at all right now but he has a working sigorta i dont know exactly in english what its called...(i hope you know what i mean)...so will this be the same as a healt insurance?can i get signed in as a wife on the same contract?

what if this contract ends during the period of the permit?should i just make a seperate healt insurance that is valid for two years for myself?and what if they would not give me the visa will i loose the money for zhe insurance then?

and about the proof of the finances...if i have enough money in my bank account and i can proof that it is also there since a longer time will that be enough even if he doesnt earn money???

and if the statement of the account is in my language and currency will they accept it???

i ask because before i applied for a short term and they didnt give it to me i still dont understand why...and everything after was so difficult...so i am very nervous about the whole process again!

i hope u know an answer!

What is the word, for what your husband has, it in Turkish? I just want to make sure there are no misunderstandings before I reply.

Yes. Because he's a Turkish citizen, he doesn't have to show any proof of financial ability or anything. But if you want to get a short-term residence permit to live in Turkey with him, you have to show you have enough money to live on. They ask for the financial information mainly to be sure you won't have to work illegally. And usually they want to see the previous six months of your bank statement. This is because some people have just borrowed a lot of money and opened a bank account, then deposited the money to show to the immigration officials. Then later they take it out and pay back the loan. So they'll want to see the last six months of your bank account.

and if the statement of the account is in my language and currency will they accept it???

Yes, if they can see from the statement what it means. The numbers are universally understandable. When they've asked me to show my bank account information, they just asked for a regular copy of it that I downloaded from my bank and printed. It was in English, they didn't ask for a translation because it was obvious that I had a certain amount of money and was receiving a certain amount of money each month. If they need a translation, they'll tell you during your residence permit interview. And if they ask for the translation, you can just go to the office of a yeminli tercüman (sworn translator) and have it translated. Then you would just take the translation back to the immigration specialist... no need for an appointment, you can just walk in and give it to them. But I doubt they will ask you to do this if they can see from your bank account statement how much money you have in the account.

Were you married to a Turkish citizen when you applied before?

I can help you more if you write, in Turkish, what you mean by "a working sigorta." I need to be sure what you're talking about before I reply. Also tell me if, when they rejected your application for a residence permit, you were married to him or not. That will help me, to help you.

Firstly, whatever happened before you can forget. Everything you'll be doing now will be completely new.

I don't know of any "job section" in the online application. But from what you wrote previously, obviously you have enough money to live on while living in Turkey. So just include whatever income or savings you have.

I'm thinking what he has is unemployment insurance. What he has doesn't matter. As long as you can show that you have enough money to live on for the period you want to have the residence permit, you'll be okay.

And regardless of his income, the fact that you're married to a Turk is what's important. You weren't married before, so your previous rejection also doesn't matter. You're married now. And after three years of marriage, you can become a Turkish citizen.

Your husband is the sponsor since he is the Turkish citizen.

Your husband would normally be covered by Turkey's national health insurance plan, Genel Sağlık Sigortası (General Health Insurance). This health insurance is managed by the Sosyal Güvenlik Kurumu (Social Security Administration, or SGK) so it's often called "SGK Insurance."

Since you're married to him, you can be included under his health insurance plan for free. There would be no need for you to get another insurance policy if you're included on his plan. Can you ask him if you're included on his health insurance plan? If he has this kind of insurance, the two of you should go to an SGK office to have yourself added to his plan.

If he doesn't have the SGK insurance, you'll need to enroll yourself in the SGK plan or buy  your own private health insurance policy. These private policies cost just a few hundred Turkish Lira per year. They cover the minimum required for a residence permit.

All of the information I've seen about the family residence permit assumes that the Turkish citizen, as the sponsor, is the one which has the income. For a family residence permit, the sponsor's income must be at least the equivalent of the Turkish minimum wage which is ₺2,325 per month, plus one third more for each family member, making the minimum amount ₺3,102.

I've never seen anything about the foreign spouse being the provider of the money. But I don't see how that would make any difference, because the main thing the Directorate General of Migration Management (DGMM) is concerned about is that the foreigner has enough money to live on so they won't work illegally.

So it seems to me that if you have at least ₺3,102 to live on per month, no matter which one of you has it, they'll have no problem giving you a residence permit. Besides, you're married to a Turkey, so they would have no reason to reject you this time.

By the way, you can call the DGMM and talk directly to an immigration specialist. They really are quite helpful, and their job is to talk to foreigners and answer their questions. You can call their help line at 157 from any telephone in Turkey, or from outside Turkey you can call +90 312 157 1122. There's an English option, probably also options for other languages as well. At least that way you can know you're talking to the DGMM directly.

If you find that you need to buy your own health insurance, you can contact Selma, who sells these kinds of policies. She has a contact form here:

https://www.turkeycentral.com/forms/12-turkey-health-insurance-for-your-residence-permit/

Selma also does residence permit applications and gets appointments for foreigners. She also has a contact form for this here:

https://www.turkeycentral.com/forms/15-residence-permit-assistance-anywhere-in-turkey/

And of course you can post in this topic with your questions. I'm happy to help.

Ironically i spoke with our GOC office manager in Bodrum today & i was asking about health policies for those applying for a FRP.
As stated in the 'documents required'  on the RP application website for FRP's  the sponsor must show....

'' Valid health insurance covering all family members (Insurance period must cover the intended residence permit duration.''

So if the sponsor [assuming being Turkish] is not working ,therefore their SGK is not current & 'live'...both the sponsor AND applicant would need to obtain private health policies to cover the duration of the applied FRP.

If this is not acceptable by the sponsor/applicant then a normal STRP can be applied for,where only the applicant requires the Turkish private health policy.
