Dear Foreign Health Insurance Customers, In this week's article, we will share up-to-date information that we believe will be really important and beneficial for you during the residence permit processes in Turkey.
The most important point to be considered when making a Residence Appointment Registration / Application is not to consider the process on any site other than the official website of our state, https://e-ikamet.goc.gov.tr/
Fees are charged by many intermediary institutions (which is not legal), after which serious grievances and problems can be experienced regarding the application processes. Unfortunately, many institutions actually act as immigration administration websites, and because of its similarity, they cause many foreign guests to suffer. In fact, foreign guests who apply to these sites and then pay the requested fee think that they pay the required fees for residence.
In addition, according to KVKK, sharing your sensitive / private information such as Passport, ID, User Passwords, photos and address information with third parties digitally via WhatsApp or E-mail is very risky, it is a crime according to the law and carries serious risks for the coming years.
If you have any questions or concerns, you can call 157 Yimer Call Center and get all kinds of support in your mother tongue free of charge, just a phone call away.
One of the most important issues is that when you are considering investing in Turkey, during your residence application or in the next steps, having your personal information in third parties carries many risks for you.
For this purpose, we wanted to share the appointment processes with you so that you can safely provide yourself with up-to-date information as of 2022, without taking risks and paying transaction fees.
Foreigners who want to reside in Turkey, after entering Turkey, must apply for residence within the minimum 30 and maximum 90 days before the expiry of their visa period. Individuals who will extend their residence permits must apply 2 months before the end of residence.
Those who will apply for residence for the first time, as a rule, cannot apply without entering Turkey.
As a first step, the application process should be started by choosing the type of residence application that is suitable for the purpose of stay on the website https://e-ikamet.goc.gov.tr/
In the first stage of the appointment form, a pre-registration form is actually created and the information suitable for the passport you will fill in this pre-registration form should be the same as the information you will fill in the next step. Another important step is to upload the biometric photo that you will declare on the appointment day in the digital environment to the immigration administration site.
You can access the features of the biometric photograph on the official website of our state, https://www.goc.gov.tr/ikamet-basvurusunda-fotograf-kullanimi-hakkinda
After filling out the pre-registration form, you can activate your application with the verification code sent to your mobile phone or e-mail address according to your chosen communication preference.
In the first step after the pre-registration form, the passport issuance date and validity date, as well as the country of ownership, must be filled in.
In the second stage; The address of residence in Turkey must be written completely and correctly.
The education information field in the next step is not mandatory.
In the third stage; There is an Income Statement information field, and this information should be the same as the information to be declared on the appointment day when necessary.
In the fourth step; It is the insurance information area; For residence, you must have a private health insurance that covers the residence period. When purchasing your insurance, do not forget to choose authorized agents for foreign health insurance valid for residence. Otherwise, you will not be able to legally and accurately complete your residency appointment. Unfortunately, policy arrangement by non-insurance intermediaries may cause you to encounter the information that your policy is invalid during the appointment registration process.
Another important point to consider when making an appointment is the information you enter when purchasing residence insurance. When making an appointment, your insurance information must be correctly defined in the system. Unfortunately, most people choose insurance types that do not require compulsory insurance information such as SGK / BAĞKUR when making an appointment and pass to the next step. However, this situation causes many important errors due to the wrong type of insurance and dates on the appointment day.
For this reason, foreign health insurance for residence must be purchased before making an appointment. When purchasing the insurance, care should be taken to ensure that the residence request date is the same in the first applications and the residence extension date in the extension applications.
Many people make mistakes when adding insurance information to the appointment screen. The points to be considered in this regard are;
· The page must be in Turkish and you must log in from your computer, not your mobile phone.
· Insurance Type: You must choose Private Health Insurance.
· Company Name: Select the insurance company you purchased.
· Effective Date: Policy Expiry Date
· Policy No: ………. It is the part up to the ' / ' sign.
· Renewal Number: 0 (zero)
· After typing this information, you should press the ADD button and proceed.
Fifth Step; It is short-term declaration information, all steps marked in red in this step must be filled in completely.
Sixth Step; This is the Short Term Permit Information field. In this step, you should choose the option that suits your purpose of stay in Turkey. Your residence period and residence start date that you will request in this step should cover the same period as the insurance.
You can easily learn all the processes from the official Youtube channel of the immigration administration. ( Göç İdaresi Başkanlığı )
We recommend that you review the official website of our state, https://www.goc.gov.tr/ikamet-izni-cesitleri before applying for the types of residence that are suitable for your purpose of stay in Turkey.
After all these steps, it will be enough to create your appointment request record and wait for the immigration administration to inform you with the appointment date.
