Another residency permit question!!!

Sorry to be a pain in the proverbial but another thought just popped into my head (thinking is dangerous!!).

Bearing in mind, the probable (?) change to the tourist visa scenario next year, we will need to get a residency permit. No problem there, quite happy to do that so that we can spend the amount of time we want in Turkey. Right, my question is .....

We are coming out to Turkey on 8 April and staying until 4 July, then going back to the UK and flying out again to Turkey on 26 August. We haven't yet booked a flight back to the UK for that trip but intend to return home some time in October. As this will mean that we will be in Turkey in 2011 for 7 months (a total of 7 months, April to October, albeit it with a break in the middle), will we be able to get a residency permit for 7 months (which at current prices would be 40 + 6 x 30 = 220)? I appreciate that there will be an additional cost for the blue book on our first application.

Also if this is possible, could we do this every year? Would the blue book still be in force - if you understand my meaning.

Hope somebody out there can help me. Thank you.

Re: Another residency permit question!!!

We will be in the same position, we thought we would just have to go for the yearly permit and forfeit the months we are not there! Any other suggestions welcome, bearing in mind that it hasn't happened yet! Moggycat

Re: Another residency permit question!!!

That's good news then. So, at the current rates, we could get a residency permit for 7 months at a cost of 220 (as opposed to 370 for a year) and we could renew a further four times - so for 5 years, it would cost 1100 as opposed to 1850. I'm liking the sound of saving 750!!

Okay, off to investigate what is required for RP application ..... (I like to be prepared).

Re: Another residency permit question!!!

Well I did wonder about that - great if it could be done. The only trouble is if you ask about these things in Turkey, you seem to get a different answer every time!!

Re: Another residency permit question!!!

The only thing you have to be careful with that one is how long your local police department takes to process the RP.
Ours in Ortaca takes round about a month - and sometimes 6 weeks -as all the paperwork including your passport goes off to Mugla.

Obviously, living here fulltime its not a problem for us - and they do give you a photocopy of your passport (and RP if its a renewal), but for you guys it would obviously make a big difference if you didnt have your passport - the main one being you couldnt fly home!

I know different areas of Turkey do operate different rules, timescales, etc on RPs but maybe you should check it out first and make sure you have plenty time before you need to fly.

As for RP durations, you can get one for as many months as you like for up to 5 years provided you have sufficient time before your passport expires. It is actually possible to buy one for just one month (although I cant see the advantage) but its not limited to years or half year periods.

Not trying to scaremonger about the passport issue - jusy trying to prevent any tears at the airports!

Re: Another residency permit question!!!

An RP can also be done in a matter of days, if you initiate the paperwork at Ortaca Police Station (you'll probably speak to Mehmet), they will then send your paperwork off to Mugla (for relevant Police checks), then make an appointment for you to go and finalise everything and collect RP in Mugla a few days later. You'll need to explain your situation and why it is not practical/possible for you to wait the month-6 weeks it would normally take.
I'd recommend you take someone that speaks good Turkish with you!
Good luck.

Re: Another residency permit question!!!

the last time I renewed in Bodrum it only took 10 days plus they give you your passport back but get you to sign to say you wont leave the country until you get your RP, not sure if thats the same now, hopefully someone from the Bodrum area has renewed recently and can give you up to date info

I renewed at the end of November - exactly the same process as yours.
