I was shocked in 2003/4 when we paid 3,600TL for us for a 5year permit, after that it just got totally out of hand and we refused to throw anymore money at the system, maybe now.



prices are in this article

We just did our 3 year residency and it was $200 /350 tl on the day and 149 tl for the blue book you need. Bargain!

Surely the visa hop is way more expensive than residency now? That was the problem when this 90/180 day visa first appeared, but with the drastic reductions in residency only a fool would want to live out there on visitor visas now.

The only downside of residency permits is that you have to show you have enough money to support yourself during the time of the residency, I believe they are tightening up on this now checking back accounts more carefully etc, for some people this may cause a problem.

They are looking for proof of income - so if you have a regular salary or pension you are fine - people who are not working and not in receipt of any income have to show they can support themselves for the duration of their residency permit.  You submit bank statements to them when you apply.

An exchange receipt to show you have changed so much hard currency into Turkish lira is also acceptable and I know that for around 70 lira or so, a doviz can provide you with this receipt although I have never done it myself and wouldnt recommend it. Better to take a 5 min loan from someone, change the money, get the receipt, change back to hard currency and give your loan person the difference.

So what the Turkish government are saying you can only stay at your property for three months out of a six month season, unless you become a resident? which you are not, you are a property owner/tourist and are being dictated to as to when you can stay in your holiday home and for how long? just does not seem right to me.

Yes but someone Turkish who buys a house in the UK has no greater right to reside in the UK than someone who doesn't own a property here - and if they did there would be an outcry here - it's not about being dictated to!!!

Agree with Scunner. Same applies in the US and other countries apart from EU. Turkey is syncing with the rest of the world because how many other places in Europe could you flout the tourist visa rules by jumping the border every 3 months.
