Exclamation New Residency Laws come into force as of 11th April.

BREAKING NEWS..RESIDENCE PERMITS ALL CHANGE FROM FRIDAY 11TH APRIL............................................. ...................................

Residency permits to be reduced to 50TL
Single page permit card to come into force.

(The below has been released from the Turkish government's news agency Anadolu Agency. Details of where and how to get the permits have to be announced it seems.) Read the full story below:

The cost of a residency permit in Turkey has been reduced to 50 Turkish lira (US$24) from 206 lira (US$98), according to the Turkish Finance Ministry's declaration on the official gazette on Thursday.

The new law on foreigners and international protection, which governs residency permits, will come into force on Friday, April 11.

The law on foreigners and international protection came after a growing recognition of Turkey’s increasing economic and political power and in anticipation that a greater number of migrants, see Turkey as a target country rather than a mere transit route to the European Union.

“Foreigners who intend to stay in Turkey longer than the visa or visa exemption period or in excess of ninety days are obliged to obtain a residence permit, and the residence permit will become invalid if not used for six months," the new law states.

Residence permits will be divided into six categories including short-term and long-term and those for human trafficking victims, students and people in need of humanitarian aid.

Foreigners who have stayed in Turkey with a valid residence permit for eight years uninterruptedly can be given an unlimited residence permit.

"Before the new law, the residence permits of foreigners were prepared as 'permit notebooks' containing many pages," said, Duygu Akan, an attorney at law in Turkey-based Cinar & Cinar law office."

However, with the new system, the residence permits will be switched to "a single page residence permit card."

This transformation is one of the reasons behind the price reduction made to the residence permit fees."

"During the enforcement of the current law, foreigners were obliged to obtain residence permits after the issuance of their work permits. Additionally, foreigners with 90 day technician/ montage visas (obtained from Turkish Consulates) were also obliged to obtain residence permits within 30 days starting from their entry date to Turkey. However, the new law demolishes these requirements while bringing a much more practical and applicable system," Akan explained.

Akan added that the new law code aims to bring effective and easier implementation of the related rules on foreigners, and which entirely revokes the previous applicable law, no. 5683.

Under the new law, a new Directorate General for Migration Management has been established under the Ministry of Interior with the aim of implementing policies and strategies related to migration; enforcing procedures related to foreigners’ entries and stays in the country and the deportation process from Turkey, along with regulations regarding both temporary and international protection and the safeguarding of human trafficking victims.

According to new law, the migration policies board will be established in order to determine and monitor the implementation of Turkey´s migration.

Re: New Residency Laws come into force as of 11th April.

No news yet of how/where first time applicants apply,although it's supposed to be from your home country.
One of the main things to remember with this new rule,is that when you've got the new annual card,if you are out of Turkey for 6 months or more in the year,your Residency is cancelled.This rule does not include anyone still running on the Blue Book,only once you renew and get the new annual card.

Re: New Residency Laws come into force as of 11th April.

So did everyone,even the British Consulate here in Turkey.
But it makes sense now why 4 hours ago someone pasted on our expats site on facebook that a first time applicant was turned away today in Marmaris. Then late tonight the above was made public.
Constant updates on this subject & other important topics for expats [ with no adverts or lost cats/dogs] will be here.

Re: New Residency Laws come into force as of 11th April.

New Turkish residency laws - update April 2014
Wednesday, 09 April 2014
Back in April 2013, KTLN told you about a new law on residency that was about to be introduced, the Foreigners & International Protection Act - Law No. 6458. The scheduled date for implementation is tomorrow - Thursday 10th April 2014.
Today we spoke to the local office in Kaş, which deals with residency applications under the current rules, and we have been told that nothing will change tomorrow - it's business as usual under the existing scheme, until further notice.
Under the revised law, a brand new foreigners department, run by the General Directorate of Migration Management (GDMM), will open, and will process residency applications. However, we understand this new department is not yet ready to operate in Kaş, and possibly in other areas too.

Re: New Residency Laws come into force as of 11th April.

I also STILL don't understand this bit about it being cancelled if you are out of Turkey more than 6 months.

I take it if I apply for one for only 6 months thats ok?

Apart from the cost (but we can't have everything) it certainly seems to be good news for anyone who has trouble with the normal 90 day visa's overlapping.

And at least so far they do not seem to be stipulating any consecutive stay in Turkey has to be adhered to.

Just need clarification on how to apply, (although it's supposed to be from your home country.) will this be through a visit to the Turkish Consulate or Embassy or just a on-line application.

Anyone any thoughts on the application process?

Philip you won't need a six month permit. Get one for 12 months, go for six, come home for six, get a new one. 50 lira. Even you can't quibble at that.
