Residence permit in Turkey in 2023

Residence permit in Turkey in 2023

Foreign Citizens can stay in Turkey for 90 days (from 60 + 30) without a visa. For a longer stay in Turkey, you need to apply for a residence permit (residence - foreign citizen document).

Turkey continues to issue residence permits to Foreign Citizens. However, due to the large number of applications, the number of refusals has also increased (mainly on the basis of rental housing).

There are the following grounds for obtaining a residence permit in Turkey:



To work

buy property

Marriage with a Turkish Citizen


based on treatment

Now, the cadastral value of the real estate must be at least $ 75,000 in order to obtain a residence permit on the basis of TAPU.

Obtaining a "Golden Visa" (residence permit for investment) will cost the investor $400,000.

While investing in real estate, it is necessary to consider the closed areas of Alanya (Avsallar, Kestel, Mahmutlar and Kargicak). Initially, your residence permit will be denied when purchasing real estate in these regions.

The new amendments made in the law do not apply to those who have renewed their foreigner's certificate, that is, who obtained a residence permit in restricted areas before the innovations.

Now, to obtain a tourist residence permit, you need to provide the following package of documents:

Health insurance for the duration of the residence permit

notarized lease agreement,

4 biometric photos,

apostilled work certificate outside of Türkiye,

Foreigners who do not have a residence permit can open an account at Vakıf Bank, Ziraat Bank and Deniz Bank.

The residence permit is renewed as in the first application. On the website of the immigration service, you need to select the item to extend your residence permit and attach a copy of the current residence permit to the first package of documents.
