      Hello,
      Thank you for your comment.

      After you obtain turistic visa and enter Turkey, you are allowed to apply for turistic residence permit. For this purpose address in Turkey and health insurance purchased within Turkey and covering the whole requested period of stay are required. Moreover, you should be able to prove your financial resources by bank statements from bank account in Turkey or in your home country. In order to apply for student residence permit, you must be enrolled into education programme within Turkey and be able to prove it by acceptance letter from higher education institution.

    Hello Expat Guide Turkey,

    My Belarussian friend used her 90 days in a single year, is it possible her to enter Turkey and apply for residence permit while her visa is expired?

    Also if she is able, can she go to Cyprus for 1-2 days and return back to Turkey again. (We’re planning to make a quick holiday right after she applies for the permit)

    • ExpatGuideTurkey

      Hello,
      Thank you for your comment.

      It is not possible to apply for residence permit after your friend’s visa is expired. After it will be possible to obtain new visa, she can enter Turkey again and then apply for residence permit.

I am from Egypt and I have an ordinary passport. My E-visa is valid for 30 days only within 180 days stay.

    • ExpatGuideTurkey

      Hello,
      Thank you for your comment.

      If you are going to study in Turkey, you are supposed to obtain student visa in order to apply for student residence permit later. Residence permit can be issued for as long as your study programme in Turkey is going to last.

      İn 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.

      Hello,
      Thank you for your comment.

      After you come to Turkey with touristic visa, you can apply for touristic residence permit, which can be granted for maximum one year. If you are planning to move to Turkey permanently, you are supposed to purchase a property in order to obtain residence permit, which is possible to be extended multiple times for you and your family. Once you find a job in Turkey 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 application can not be submitted basing on visa.
