  1. Hello, I am a UK citizen. If I apply for a 1 year residency permit must I have $12,000USD in my bank account? I read applicants should have $1000USD for each month of their stay.

    I would like to stay in Turkey for about 8 months. Should I have $8,000 or $12,000?

    Also, for the accommodation, can I use an airbnb accommodation or should I find something more official?

    Thank you very much for considering my questions.

    1. Hello,

      For the residence permit application you should have a rental contract on your name, if the owner of airbnb accommodation could conclude a rental contract with you, there is no obstacles to apply for the process then. In regards of bank account statement, for 8 months of residence permit application, 8000 USD will be sufficient.

  3. Merhaba/Salam,

    I have a couple of very quick questions about 1-2 year residence permit. 

    I understand the rules for myself. The $12000 usd and renting an apartment in Antalya, I shouldn’t have any issues. My question is for my girlfriend. We are not officially married, but have been together for multiple years. 

    1) Do I have to put her name on the rental agreement for our apartment or is this not necessary?
    2) Does she also need $12000 usd in another account or can we both use my account for the $12000 usd? So, do we need $24000 or can we use $12000 together?

    Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. 



    1. Hello,

      As you are not officially married, that is why her name should be also added to the rental contract. In regards of bank statement, in case if immigration officer will request for it, it should be on your girlfriend’s name.

      Thank you,

  11. Good morning. I’m a Nigerian. My resident permit expired July and I have given an agent to help me apply a month before the expiration. I got to know that the agent didn’t book until august and my resident has already expired. He later posted the application on November. I have been calling 157 and they always tell me it’s on process. I have been to the immigration many times and I was told to wait for message and still I don’t get message. It’s more than 100 days from the date my application was posted to the ptt. I’m confused and I want to leave the country. I want to know which stamp will be on my passport at the airport but I’m aware that a fine needs to be paid at the airport and I’m ready to pay. What’s the possibility of me getting a visa to come to turkey?

    1. Hello,
      If you will pay the fine for overstaying while leaving Turkey you will not be banned to reenter the country. You should stay out of Turkey for at least three months before you can reenter with new visa. Unfortunately we can not know if the overstay will have an influence on your future visa application as every case is evaluated individually. Offcial time of evaluation for residence permit applications is 90 days, we recommend you to stay in Turkey if possible until receiving the result to avoid any difficulties with obtaining visa in the future.

  78. Hello,

    Thank you for helping us know the exact procedure and requirements for us to do such a critical thing.

    But is there a chance for the residence permit to be refused even if you met all the requirements and did all the procedure correctly, let’s say refused because of Nationality or something else?
    I am from Palestine and my plan is to buy a property but not until I learn the language and get to know the country so that would take months so what I thought is I could get residence permit and take my time to know the country then decide what’s the best place and all that, but all my plan would be ruined if the residence permit got rejected, so is it possible for it to get rejected even after meeting all the criteria?

    Thank you

  89. Hello,
    I am an American interested in living and working long-term in Turkey. I am an English teacher and plan on applying at language schools. Currently I do not have any job offers but think it would be best to go find work in person. I currently have a tourism e-visa, as I was just in Turkey from May 1-22 this year. I have read in order to get a residence permit, it must be done within the first 30 days of being in Turkey…is this true? If so, that means I must enter turkey, open a bank account, sign a 1 year rental contract and 1 year health insurance, go to the residency office 1-3 days before my appointment to register the address… all in 8 days of being there? I have 90 days total tourism allowed but I am unsure if the first 30 days at critical. After getting the residency permit I will look for work. If I get a job offer my employer and I can then both begin the work visa application while I am in Turkey? (I do not have to go back to the USA) and must it be after 6 months of living in Turkey or is it 6 months (or more) left on my residency permit? Thank you kindly in advance for your advise!!

  120. Hi,

    What is the Fee for Single Entry Visa? Which countries get charged for it? The DGMM’s “157” support line says that it’s for visa exempt countries like for example some of the European countries and Asian countries when they apply for ikamet. However, some visa exempt countries, like Iran, don’t seem to get charged this Visa Fee whereas other visa-exempt countries, like Malaysia, do. Could you shed some light on this? Is this charged for visa exempt countries each time an ikamet application is filed and extended? Thanks.

    Finally, do we need to hire an immigration attorney (or consult one of the companies that constantly advertise that they can help people by paying a large fee), to go through the required process to obtain residency?

      Private Health Insurrances can be both calculated as a monthly or yearly. Monthly Insurrances have higher costs and also have a broader uses in Hospital.

  165. Hi Sirs
    I got an offer from Turkish National Drilling Corporation and they asked me to transfer $2000 through western union as a security deposit for me to get the work permit.
    Is this normal in the government procedure to ask for $2000 as a security deposit from me personally when I have a working contract with a reputable company.
    Please let me know if it’s ok to send that money or it is a scam.
    Thanking you in advance for your help and assistance

  171. Hello, I was a student in Northern Cyprus and I had a permit for 2 years and it expires 17 September 2017, but I had to go back home due to family issues and finances and now I have to start again trying to sort myself out, However I cant make it back to TRNC by that date. If I get there a few months after the date of my expired permit will I be told to pay a fine I dont want to travel so far and be sent back, because most definitely I want to renew my permit and carry on with my education. would you know what documents they will ask from me by the airport? or will I need to get a new visa fly to TRNC and will they let me in ?

  183. Hello,

    I have a job offer in Istanbul Turkey as an Art Teacher , The employer told me to contact a certain Travel Agency in Turkey so that they can process my work permit and visa . The travel agency told me that the validity of the work permit will be until September 2018. They will also send me an air ticket going there.
    I only send the travel agency a photocopy of my passport, passport photo and the form they send to me that I filled up. I asked them if I need to go to the Turkey Embassy in my hometown for visa stamping . They said no need , after I get the courier containing the papers like work permit , work contract and visa , I can go and fly to Turkey right away .

    This is so easy , I want to know if I’m no the right track. Please Advice.

    Thanks ,

  187. Confused…I had a 3 year residency permit but it expired in April 2015 when online applications came into effect. I tried and tried online but appointments kept coming up full. Eventually my visa expired and I overstayed 97days. I found a job and had to go to London UK to apply for a work visa as there was now no residency permit in date (6months +)I booked appointment with London embassy along with documents from future employer. Got reference number which I texted to my employer in Istanbul straight away as there is a 10day window..Document from London and documents from employer need to arrive in Ankara roughly same time I guess. In London I went to the embassy my future employer applied from Istanbul. I returned to Istanbul on a 90day tourist visa while I waited for my blue work permit card.8 weeks later I received my work permit booked flight and appointment with embassy in London. Returned to London embassy handed over my passport paid £411pounds 3 days later collected my passport stamped with 1 year work visa.
    Now I am asking….when I extend my visa and work permit….Can this be done from Istanbul to Ankara rather than me spending money on flights to London? Arranging appointment with London Embassy etc did ask in London this question but clerk doing my passport visa couldnt say and didn’t know answer
