Can Foreigners Apply for International Protection on behalf of Family Members in Turkey?

First of all, foreigners in Turkey can apply for international protection if the required legal procedures are completed. In addition, foreigners who have been detained in repetriation centers have the right to apply for international protection. If the foreign nationals in your family leave the country for the same reason as you, it is legally possible for you to apply for international protection on their behalf. However, in order to apply for international protection on behalf of individuals over the age of 18 and who are part of your family, it is a legal obligation to obtain the consent letter of these individuals.

Before the consent letter is given, the officials are required to inform the signers of this document of all possible results of the application. In addition, you have the possibility to request a separate assessment even after giving consent letter. However, all such requests must be made in writing. In some cases, the officials of the General Directorate of Migration Management may receive applications from family members separately. If you are going to apply for international protection on behalf of your family members, it would be beneficial to ask for legal support from the authorities. As a result of these applications received, these applications are evaluated by the authorities in two different ways. In this article, you can find all the details about the deadlines for international protection applications.
