Out of date residency permit - a question

Hi everyone,

My five year permit expired in October 2007. I left Turkey in April of that year and didn't return due to a change in my personal circumstances. I still have my book.

In February this year I bought my apartment in Didim and have travelled over several times. The plan is to move back to Turkey in a couple of years but in the meantime, travel over as often as possible.

As it isn't really worth it for me to apply for a new permit right now, I was wondering if I could use it to set up a telephone/internet account.

Logically I would guess the answer to be 'no', but in light of recent feedback I've seen on here with people who have been able to buy or sell cars even though they no longer have a valid permit but could use their Turkish ID number instead, I'm wondering if I could use the same logic.

Has anyone been able to get any of these services without a current permit or can anyone offer any other ideas/suggestions?

I would try to get a short term permit but wouldn't be able to stay the number of weeks/months that it could take to process the application.

Any help greatly appreciated and so sorry for the long, drawn-out post to ask a simple question

Thanks.

Liz

You can check for your Turkish ID number here:T.C. Nüfus ve Vatanda?l?k ??leri Genel Müdürlü?ü Kimlik Numaras? Sorgulama Sayfas?

To set up a bank account I believe you will need a tax number,which you get from the tax office by producing your passport,though I assume you must already have a tax number if you bought a house.

Don't know if that helps you?

Re: Out of date residency permit - a question

Hi Saffie,

Thanks so much for your reply.

Yes, thanks to other posts on TLF, I saw this very useful link and was able to locate my Turkish ID number. As you guessed, I've already got my tax number plus bank account.

What I'm hopefully trying to achieve on my next visit is to be able to set up an internet account and maintain that via direct debit from my bank account, however, knowing that you need a residency permit to open accounts with the ISP and Turk Telekom, I don't know if they will entertain an out of date residency permit or even if my Turkish ID number would be sufficient.

I suppose I could Google the providers and see if I can ask via email, my Turkish isn't TOO bad so should be able to manage it, but just thought that perhaps someone on this site might have come up against this.

Re: Out of date residency permit - a question

Hi Edie,

Thanks for your feedback. I have no concerns from the bank account side of things, was just wondering if I would get away with using an out of date blue book - I'm not fully resident in the country at the moment but over enough times that it would definately be a benefit to have the services in.

Did they take a copy of your permit? Query the date? How out of date is it?

Thanks.

Liz
