money scam - resident permits

This government has gone crazy one minute you can buy a vehicle with out residence, Then you need a residence to buy a car but always happy to take your money, Just wonder if the people who have a vehicle in turkey and pay there car tax for the year will get six months refund as we are being told we can only stay in our property for six months of the year< UNLESS YOU PURCHASE A RESIDENCE MORE MONEY> i very much dowt it , Property sales has got to go down if you are being restricted access to property, Or is this just another scam to force people to rush out and buy residence get a pot of money then revert back to the old visa. / what are your thoughts?.

Re: money scam

I think that the situation is clear frrom the Turkish government:

1. If you want to live in Turkey for a significant part of the year and take on the trappings that go with that, then you buy a residence permit.

2. If you want to come to Turkey as a bona fide tourist (and we all know what that really means whether a we all admit it or not, then you can have a tourist visa.

The problem area is for those whose want to enter as tourists but then live here for significant periods of time.

Is the Turkish government really being unfair? I don't think so!

Re: money scam

I would buy a RP if I came to live there it is just the cost.When Spain had RP rules the cost was next to nothing and you paid in pesatas,the only reason they want us to pay in pounds is they get more according to the exchange rate, just another way to extract as much money as they can!!!

One pound a day for a residency permit is reasonable

Re: money scam

Can anyone tell me if the cost of an RP here in Turkey is more expensive than their rates or council tax back in the UK?

Re: money scam

I think the Turkish Government is being very fair to genuine tourists who can now spend 90 days out of 180 in the country for a 10 visa. It means that many will be able to take two or three holidays - or even more - in that six month period and only pay one visa charge whereas in the past they would have had to buy two tourist visas.

Re: money scam

If you were coming to the uk from a non eu country you wouldnt be able to stay on a tourist visa. why should you think Turkey should allow it.
Its been a loophole that has been exploited for years, The UK government dont make it east for Turkish nationals to come to the uk even for a holiday. What goes around comes around.
