Residence and work permit for UK husband of Turk

Hi All


My wife and I (and daughter ) are about move to Turkey. She is Turkish (and british) as is our 6 yr old daughter. I m only British. Weve been in the Uk for the last 12 years. I lived in Istanbul for 3 years before that and had an Ikamet then via my job teaching english.

I cant seem to get any sense or response out of the Turkish Embassy in London. I am trying to work out what I have to do to get a residence permit or a visa that allows me to stay longer than 3 months. I also need to find out about work permits. Unfortunately I cant seem to find information relevant to my situation.

Does anyone have any similar experience or could point me in the right direction for getting my questions answered?

Cheers

Jimbob

Re: Residence and work permit for UK husband of Turk

You will need to have Turkish health insurance if you are under 65 and also a certain amount in a Turkish bank as well as to show your Tapu or a rental agreement - look on Facebook under DocMartin for a list of exactly what is required.

Re: Residence and work permit for UK husband of Turk

Hi Jimbob,

You have three options:
Apply for a family residency visa (only covers you for two years but requires less paperwork than a regular residency visa)
Apply for a work visa (you'd need a job offer first, but apparently you no longer need a separate work visa/residency visa, like before)
Apply for citizenship - you should ask the Turkish Embassy about it because you may or may not have to have a residency visa first, and you may or may not be eligible for military service)


Unfortunately there's no more blue book residency permits for 5 years - the longest you could get a residency permit for is 2 years, but the system is going online so it might make things simpler in the future.

Many thanks for the responses.

Not sure why but the citizenship is a bit intimidating ( even though I most likely to be too old for the military at 46). Im already a UK and a US citizen so I could add it to the list but ....

Ill take a look at the options.

Cheers

These might help. They are aimed at resident permits in Kalkan but I'm sure the general information will be the same elsewhere.
