Can I retire to Turkey?

Can I retire to Turkey?

Because Turkey does not offer a visa expressly for retirees, you must instead apply for a residency permit. A short-term resident permit is valid for two years. After eight years of continuous residence in Turkey under your short-term visa, you can apply for a long-term resident permit. When you obtain a long-term resident permit, it will be valid for ten years.

If you plan to stay in Turkey longer than two years, it's best to get a long-term resident permit. With this type of permit, you have the right to work in Turkey and receive social security benefits. You also need to take a test on Turkish laws to prove that you are able to support yourself financially after ending your retirement. The cost of the test is about $150.

When you arrive in Turkey, you must provide evidence of health insurance coverage while you're here. This may include a letter from your doctor stating that you are healthy enough to travel or an equivalent document from another country. If you don't have proof of health insurance, you can still travel to Turkey, but when you come back into the United States you'll need to show your insurance company that covered you while you were here.

As part of its visa policy, the government of Turkey requires that retired citizens register with local authorities. You must do this even if you live in an area where there is no police force.

Can British citizens live in Turkey?

If you want to stay in Turkey for more than 90 days, you must apply for a resident permit before the 90-day period expires, or you must apply for a longer-stay visa before you go (see information on residence permits). If you have a valid work permit, you do not require a residence permit—see work permit as a dwelling permit. However, if you are not a national of one of the countries that is listed under "Persons whose presence in the country is not permitted" in paragraph 1 of the Ministry of Justice website, then you need to obtain a residence permit.

British citizens can live in Turkey for a long period without a problem. In fact, they are among the most protected groups when it comes to employment rights in Turkey. They can also take up permanent residency after three years if they find a job in the country and pay enough taxes. However, if you want to travel with an EU passport, then you should know that you cannot work during this time.

In order to be able to stay in Turkey for several years, you will need to prove that you have sufficient means to support yourself financially. For example, if your husband or wife is a Turkish citizen, then they can help you out by providing evidence that you are capable of earning a living. Otherwise, you will not be granted a residence permit.

It is recommended to use one's vacation time instead of staying in Turkey without a permit.

How can I live permanently in Turkey?

Can I remain and live in Turkey indefinitely? If you want to stay in Turkey for more than 90 days, you must apply for a residency permit ahead of time. You can stay in Turkey for more than three months in a half-year period if you have a Turkish resident permit. Otherwise, you will need to get a new permit for each trip back to the country office that issues permits. The process requires an application, fee, and police certificate to prove that you do not violate any laws in Turkey.

When you first arrive in Turkey, you can register with the local authorities where you are staying so they can send you a notification when there is a hearing about your case.

If you are married or have children, it is easier to obtain a residence permit. First, find out how long you can stay without a permit by checking the rules for temporary residents. If you plan to stay longer than what is allowed, go to the local authority and ask how long you can keep your passport. They will tell you whether you need a permit for vacation or permanent residence. If you need to extend your stay, you can do it by requesting another police certificate. There is no limit to the number of certificates you can apply for; however, each request adds some money to your bill.

Do not forget to bring along your documents required for the registration process with you.
