According to the Turkish Immigration Department, the system and method of applying for residency in Turkey has been changed as of 10/04/2018. Anyone who has booked an appointment before this date is not covered by the changes and is currently in force.
The most important points that have been radically changed:
First: During the application for residence, the applicant must be in Turkish territory (ie, it is no longer possible to book an appointment from outside Turkey) at the present time and this is known when entering the passport number.
Second: You must submit the same passport or document that has been entered into Turkey and when a new passport or replacement of the old passport must be reviewed by the Immigration Department in person before applying for residence
(Ie, the passport number must be entered during submission).
Third: It is desirable to have a real health insurance covering the length of stay and full registration details (name of the insurance company + end date + policy number) before applying for residency and the owner is fully responsible if there is any error in the information provided and the employee has the right to cancel the application.
Fourth: There are no longer specific dates confirmed by dates, after the submission of the application, the e-migration management system send a message to the owner through the mechanism of his choice (telephone number – email) to set a date for the interview and submission of papers.
Note: These changes at the current time and when any other changes will be posted directly on our official website, attached to you the Turkish news link from the source.
