Residence Permit

According to Law No. 6458, 'Foreigners and International Protection,' foreign citizens can obtain a residence permit in Turkey based on the submission of the required documents directly related to the type of residence permit they are seeking.

Foreign citizens who own residential property in Turkey for their personal use have the right to obtain a residence permit, which can be renewed. However, there are areas where obtaining a residence permit is not possible. Due to the high density of foreign citizens residing in certain districts, the issuance of initial residence permits has been suspended in these areas. Foreign citizens who already have a Residence Permit in these districts have the right to renew it. There are a total of 1,169 such districts across the country, including the following: in Antalya (Liman, Hurma, Sarysu), in Alanya (Avsallar, Mahmutlar, Kestel, and Kargicak), in Istanbul, certain neighborhoods in Sisli, Esenyurt, Zeytinburnu, Bahcelievler, and others.
