Auto Conversion of Blue Book to Long Term?

Has anyone else been told that their blue book is now "Long Term"?

I renewed my Residence Permit blue book for a five year term last year. Recently I had to show it at the Police Foreigners' department in Izmir for some other business. After going away and doing some checks, they handed it back and said; "That's a long term permit". I didn't get a chance to ask for clarification, but the implication was that if your residence status satisfied the new long term requirements (8 years continuous residence etc..) then you were given the long term permission without having to apply for a new document.

Please don't quote me on it though! It could just be that the policeman used the term "long term" carelessly, but has anyone else had a similar experience?

Now wouldn't that be wonderful if it were to be correct they did originally say there would be no charge for the long term residency permit

Did I detect a touch of cynicism creeping into this thread?

Probably, but then with experience many will believe it when they see it I suppose.

Many will be happy if that is indeed correct.

Re: Auto Conversion of Blue Book to Long Term?

Now İ really see pigs flying past my balcony. Sorry but can not imagine anything so easy it will be several departments and loads of forms at least before you get your life time permit or perhaps what it means is it will take you a life time to get it.
