Recently, Turkey has been viewed by many as not only a popular tourist destination, but also a country for permanent residence. Turkey is not a member of the European Union, so when it comes to obtaining a residence permit, there are its own rules and procedures.
In the article we will discuss what gives a residence permit in Turkey, how to get it and on what grounds you can stay in the country.
What gives a residence permit in Turkey
According to the Law on Aliens and International Protection No. 6458, a residence permit means permission to stay in Turkey in a certain place and for a certain period of time. This document is necessary for everyone who is going to stay in the country for more than 90 days, or more than the period required by the visa.
There are several types of residence permit in Turkey. To obtain any of them, you will need health insurance, as well as documents confirming your right to stay in the country (for example, if this is a family residence permit, you must provide a marriage certificate).
