At what point in the proceedings do you apply for a residency permit? When you've been there 3 months and own a property? Sorry we've no idea - we are new and dumb to all this hahaah!

Hi Linda
You can apply during the 3 months but you have to give your passport to police at the time of application.They will give it back together with your residence permit , during this period you will have only fotocopy of the passport that means you will not be able to go out of Turkey till your passport and residence permit comes.
They will want also rental contract or deed.You dont need to have a house at the time of application but at least you have to have a contract for renting a house.

Cenk,

Do you know roughly how long it takes to get the permit and passport returned?

Hi
Some serious questions about getting a residency permit:

We are selling up and want to move to Turkey to live permanently

1  If we come to Turkey on a holiday visa can we then apply for a residency permit direct from Turkey?  If so how do we apply?

2  Are there any conditions that we have to satisfy in order to qualify for a residency visa?

3  Is there anything else that you think we should be aware of?

Your help and information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi Janet
Hope these answers will help
1- Yes you can apply for residence permit when you are here with your touristic visa.
How you can apply : Inspector explained it very good , its sticky at the beginning of this topic but I have to tell you will need a person who speaks good Turkish when you are collecting the papers and making the payments , you can ask  help from your estate agency.
2- Although I couldnt understand this question (my English sometimes is not enough ),I will try to answer how I understood. You have to proove that you have enough money to live in Turkey , to give the photocopy of bank notebook which has at least 1.000 GBP is enough.
3- If you find a reliable estate agency (most of estate agencies here , are reliable)no need to worry.For the peace of your mind you can use a solicitor service also.

Janet,  Have plenty of paperwork regarding money in the bank and details of any income like pensions etc. If your house in the UK is on the market, bring the estate agent's blurb. If you're mortgaged up to the hilt, don't say so!

Avoid giving the impression that you intend to come out to Turkey to work. If you do that you'll be asked to produce a Work Permit. As you are probably aware, you can't work without a permit, and you can't get one unless you've been offered a job and your prospective employers have got you one.

Not that I'm advising you to tell lies Janet! Just don't tell all of the truth!

Good Luck
