RP for us (husband and I) and adult son

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

We (my husband, our adult son and I) are planning to rent an apartment for 1 year in Marmaris or Icmeler.

My husband has an income from retirement, but my son and I (58 years old) have due the circumstances no income. Our son is diagnosed with autism.

My son and I have savings in the bank, enough for the required amount for both to live in Turkey for 1 year.

Is it true that a marriage certificate translated by a sworn translator relieves me of having about 6000 Euro on a Turkish bankaccount?

Our son is going to live with us in the apartment in Turkey. My husband is going to sign the rental agreement. Doesn’t my son get difficulties to get a Residence Permission because he is over 18 years old? He is 22 years old by the time we are in Turkey.

I hope someone can give us more information.

Last question: do we need a passport or is an ID card also valid to get an RP?

thanks in advance!

The marriage license allows you to claim your husband's income as your own, if that's what you mean. But the 6,000 Euro would help as well, that is, to prove you have enough to live on.

For a foreign marriage certificate, it must have an apostille. Then when you get to Turkey you must have the marriage certificate and the apostille translated into Turkish.

He just needs to have a source of income that can maintain a suitable life for him in Turkey, regardless of whether if it comes from his father or not. When you apply online, you have to state that you have sufficient income on which to live. Later, when you go to your appointment, you can explain the situation to the immigration specialist. If the three of you have enough money to live on, then it should be easy to explain the situation and convince the immigration specialist that you will be able to support yourselves with it.

That I would need to check to be sure. While citizens of some countries can apply for an e-visa with an ID card, I am not sure if you need a passport or not to get a residence permit. I will send you a private message and look into this for you.

I wanted to double-check this to make sure the information was correct, and that there wasn't some exception for foreigners who enter Turkey with an ID card only. I just talked to a representative of the Directorate General of Migration Management (DGMM). They told me that even though you can enter Turkey with only a national ID card, if you apply for a residence permit, you must have a passport.
