    How to get a Turkey Family Residence Permit?

    The legislation for Turkey Family Residence Permit has not limited the sponsor only to Turkish citizens, but has interpreted it broadly. Not only foreigners who are married to a Turkish citizen, but also foreigners who have legal residence permits in Turkey, refugees and foreigners who are married to foreigners with secondary protection can apply. In this case, an Indonesian sponsor can obtain a residence permit for his/her spouse, as well as obtain a residence permit in Turkey for his/her own children and children who are dependent on his/her spouse.

    If the Indonesian sponsor has more than one spouse, only one of the spouses is granted a family residence permit. However, all children of the Indonesian sponsor are granted a residence permit within the scope of family residence. If one of the parents with joint custody is abroad in the applications of the children, the consent of the mother or father who is abroad is sought. Children living in Turkey within the scope of family residence can continue their education in educational institutions without taking student residence until they reach the age of maturity.

    Children who have resided in Turkey for at least 3 years with a family residence permit and are of age can be converted to a short-term residence permit if they request it. Indonesian citizens who have been married to Turkish citizens and have been residing with a family residence permit for at least 3 years can apply for a short-term residence permit in case of divorce. However, in cases where it is determined by the court decision that the foreign spouse has been victimized due to domestic violence, the 3 year requirement is not sought.

     

    In how many days is the Turkey Family Residence Permit issued?

    Family Residence Permit is issued for a maximum of 3 years and in any case, if the sponsor is a foreign national, it cannot exceed the duration of the sponsor’s residence permit.
