  7. Hi
    Is 12 months the maximum length for a residence permit with Ikamet ?
    Can it be renewed if you are renting property or is a property purchase required for renewal ?

  8. I am doing research and came across your website.

    i’m a South African passport holder in Turkey (currently in Antalya) on holiday.

    I have 30days and would like to be in Turkey for longer.

    I believe my only next option is to either:

    option 1: fly out Turkey and return with new e-visa (allowing for additional 30days)
    option 2: Residence Visa

    1. Can you help with the residance visa?
    2. What’s the process?
    3. What’s the cost?
    4. How long does it take to get an appointment?
    5. How long does it take to get the visa approved?

    Note- I have already asked the same question on the Watsup line.
