So true! If there is serious business or a procedure like this to get though my first call is to my "helper". I know ex-pats like to DIY, but it is so stressful, long-winded and has the possibility you will fail if you hit the wrong bureaucrat.

My helper, for example, will have done the deed many times; he knows which desk to go to and which officer will help; he knows what time to turn up to avoid waiting; he knows what he can do by himself, and when I need to be there.

It is also playing fair to the people on the other side of the desk, who, while usually helpful, have a job to do that does probably not include babysitting foreigners in the job description.

I have always considered it money well spent.

Re: Residency Permit

Yes, completely agree with you Ian, we used someone to help with our residency which was so much easier, as there is always some stumbling block along the way. In our case, when registering at the nufus office, the previous owner was still registered at our house, so we had to go home to get a bill with our name on it, and because our helper had taken us there and we had seen where we had to go and how the system worked, we just returned after lunch to do it ourselves, where we breezed through. In our opinion paying for help is well worth it. xx

Re: Residency Permit

The thread has been helpful and given me a few questions in my mind.
The wife and I have spent two long stays in our holiday home. Firstly six months, ten years ago. When only a requirement to keep renewing a three month visa was very easy.
Second time was five years ago spending two years, on a residency permit. Each time returning to the UK to work a little more.
I believed with the visa changes a couple of years ago, it made it impossible to split your year 50/50 between the UK and Turkey. We have discussed the possibility of winters in Bodrum. (We know they can be wet and cold). But love, the quieter aspect, with many lovely days as well. Being in our early fifties a work / life balance seems appealing.
Would continuous, six month, uk/Turkey be realistic with the present visa system.
Thank you for your help and any other comments appreciate.

Re: Residency Permit

Hi, we do a roughly 6 / 6 stay but have to use RPs. The visas only allow 90 days in the last 180 and border staff count back from your exit, with a fine calculated on the daily rate charge of a residency permit if you overstay. It's not worth the risk, and flying in and out 3 monthly can be expensive too.

Just one point, try to line up your dates to allow at least 6 months remaining on your UK passport when your RP ends so that you can renew without a delay. Otherwise you will either have to defer the new RP which is then treated as a first time application, (or was when we did it) or you have to renew the UK passport early and lose the remaining months, as they no longer carry over any valid time.

Re: Residency Permit

How do people stand now for being out of the uk for six months at a time for NHS and stuff .I thought it had been dropped to three months .

Re: Residency Permit

That's what I wonder Bez
Particularly as I know of some folks getting UK prescriptions and benefits
When we moved I made a clean break . If I ever have to go back I think I'll buy a dingy , get a tan and get dropped off half a mile from Dover and crack on I don't speak English .......Then I get every thing going free
