    I intend to buy a property in Alanya, Turkey. I am a Canadian Citizen. What is the procedure and fee to get a resident permit for Canadians. Please advise.

    • Expatguide

      Hello,
      After you purchase a property, you can submit residence permit application on basis of the ownership. This kind of permit is usually granted for one year at first and later can be extended multiple times, for up to three years each time. Application process takes up to 4 months depending on available appointment dates. You do not need to be present in Turkey during the whole process, however your presence is required to submit the application in the system and later on the appointment date. Amount of governmental fees for Canadian citizens is 80 USD residence permit fee + 110 TL card fee. Apart of this cost applicants between 18 and 65 years old must also purchase a health insurance. Cost of health insurance depends on applicants age and type of policy.

    Dear Sir,
    I m from Pakistan and i want to settle in Turkey with my husband. please guide me what should i do to get an immediate job and residential permit. actually how much money i need on the first place?

    • Expatguide

      Hello,
      After you enter Turkey you can apply for touristic residence permit before expiration of your visa. This kind of permit can be granted for maximum one year. When you find a job, your future employer must transfer your residence permit to work permit, which allows you to stay in Turkey for as long as you will be employed within the country. After five years of uninterrupted stay in Turkey on basis of work permit you can be eligible for Turkish citizenship application. At first stage costs of touristic residence permit application are as below:
      – 80 USD + 110 TL residence permit fees
      – health insurance costs, which depends on your age and type of policy (as an avarage it is between 200 and 400 TL)
      Each applicant should also prove their financial resources as having in their bank account 500 USD per each requested month of stay in Turkey.

    • Expatguide

      Hello,
      Only one family can be eligible for residence permit on basis of one Title Deed. If the shares of property can be split into two separate Title Deeds, two families can be eligible for residence permit application and the residence permit can be extended multiple times as long as the ownership would be remained.

    Hi. I overstayed in turkey for 2 years and when i left the country they banned me on 5 years entrance in Turkey or i apply for VISA and paying the fee of around 1000TL. Now if i want to come back to Turkey and pay that amount of money, can i apply for residence and work permit immediately and what’s the procedure of getting resident card, how long it takes?

    • Expatguide

      Hello,
      You should contact nearest Turkish consulate in order to get information regarding eligibility to lift your entry ban. If the ban would be lifted, you will be allowed to apply for residence permit after entering Turkey. Application procedures take up to four months, depending on the city and available appointment dates. In order to obtain work permit, first you need to find a job in Turkey and your future employer must apply for your work permit. Foreigners can not apply for work permit in their own name or without having a job in Turkey. Application for foreigner who has residence permit valid in total for at least 6 months can be done within Turkey. For foreigners who are not residence permit holders, application must be done via Turkish Consulate in their home country. Work permit can also be only obtained once your entry ban will be lifted.

    I’m from jordan and I been here in turkey istanbul for 10 now and In 2 more months I have to renew my residence card and I was wondering would it by less money to renew it than when I first made it and how much would it cost me. And when I first made my residence card for 1 year I also paid a visa tax to my home country which is Jordan and do I have to pay that tax again when I renew my residence card for 1 year??

    • Expatguide

      Hello,
      Governmental fees do not differ for extension applications and for citizens of Jordan it is equal to 36,5 USD + 110 TL card fee while applying for one year residence permit. Visa tax is only paid during first application, you do not need to pay this fee during renewal application. Please, be informed that if your residence permit has been obtained for purpose of tourism, it is not possible to extend it until there is another purpose of stay.

      Kind Regards,

        I am a company owner in Turkey and also a Manager but I am currently living on a Tourist Residence Permit as I am not able to recruit 5 Turkish personels because I just started my startup. After one year, will I be able to renew my tourist RP because i own a business in Turkey or not?

        • Expatguide

          Hello,
          If the company’s paid capital is 100.000 TL or more, you are eligible for residence permit extension application. However, there is no guarantee that the application would be approved as company owners should obtain work permit in order to do business activity in Turkey.

          Kind Regards,

  • Ms.Peerzada

    You said 250.000 USD is needed to get citizenship on an investment basis. Is it 250k or 250 USD. The decimal after 250 is really confusing. Also, will I be able to get the residence permit if I am making a small investment like a small cafe shop or something else? As you mentioned several invalid reasons to extend your visa how can one be able to find a job and get a work permit if you don’t get a tourist residence card at the first place?

    • Expatguide

      Hello,
      The minimum amount of real estate investment to be eligible for Turkish citizenship is 250 thousand USD. Residence permit on basis of company establishment can be granted for maximum 6 months and after this time company owners are supposed to obtain work permit. If you did not apply for touristic residence permit before, this kind of permit can be also granted for up to one year. Work permit application for foreigner who has residence permit valid in total for at least 6 months can be done within Turkey. For foreigners who are not residence permit holders, application must be done via Turkish Consulate in their home country.
