applying for a one-year residence permit
Greg 2 weeks önce gönderdi


I came to Turkey about 2 months ago and am now applying for a one-year residence permit to stay in the country longer. However, the passport on which I entered on on August 2 is expiring in February. Thus, I renewed my passport at the French consulate to be able to get a longer permit.

My question is, am I allowed to apply for a residence permit on my new passport? Or, do I have to apply for my residence permit with the passport which I used to enter the country? If so, how can I transfer my residence permit to my new passport?

Thank you so much for your help!

    Dear Greg,
    You can only lodge online application on basis of passport, which has been used to enter Turkey. Depending on the city procedures to update passport information in Directorte of Migration differs, that is why we recommend you to visit local directorate in order to receive detailed information on the process.

    Best Regards,
