As you know, hundreds of thousands of foreigners live in Turkey for various purposes and reside in Turkey within the framework of legal rules such as work or residence permits. As a general procedure, foreigners are deemed to have violated a visa as a result of the expiry of the visa or residence permit that allows foreigners to be in Turkey legally or their cancellation for any reason. As a result of this visa violation, we would like to remind you that if foreigners continue to stay in Turkey, they will be illegal and will face administrative fines. In addition, deportation decision can be made about these foreigners. However, in some cases, foreigners who have violated a visa can apply for a humanitarian residence permit. In this article, we will briefly talk about these situations.
In Which Situations Humanitarian Residence Permit Application Is Made?
First of all, in order to obtain a residence permit without leaving Turkey, you must apply for a humanitarian residence permit by having one of some special conditions. We would like to remind you that this type of residence permit is only given in very special cases, and people need to document these special situations. If you have a Turkish citizen child, if your exit has become impossible, if you cannot go to a third country where you can ensure your safety, if you are pregnant or if you have a serious illness that requires urgent treatment, you can apply for a humanitarian residence permit. Let us remind you that you cannot apply for a residence permit without leaving Turkey, and you cannot stay in the country legally, except for a humanitarian residence permit.
How to Apply for a Humanitarian Residence Permit?
First of all, we would like to remind you that not all humanitarian residence permit applications are concluded positively and that all the discretion in this matter lies with the Provincial Migration Administrations. In addition to filling out the application form, it is useful to have your identity or passport, as well as notarized and translated documents documenting your special situation with you during the application. You can also get legal support related to your situation from lawyers or consultancy companies, you can make the application through the legal representative you have given power of attorney or directly yourself.
