Important Notice: The explanations are for informational purposes only and you can access current and detailed information at


Dear Foreign Health Insurance customers, we continue to share with you the legal information we have learned about the insurance and residence processes in order to make the lives of our foreign guests living in Turkey easier.

Our website only offers Foreign Health Insurance / Residence Permit Insurance. It was established for this purpose. Apart from this, there are no different insurance products. All information about residence permit processes on our site and in our blog posts is for the purpose of informing users and is shared completely free of charge to assist our policyholders.

The most important point to be considered while making a Residence Extension Application is that you do not take the process into consideration on any site other than the official website of Turkey, Many intermediary institutions charge a fee (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 due to its similarity, many foreign guests experience material and moral grievances. 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, as per Personal Data Protection Institution (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 Migration Call Center and get all kinds of support in your mother tongue free of charge, just a phone call away.

First stage; "I am Applying for Extension of Residence Permit" option should be selected on

In the Second Stage; Continue with the I Want to Apply for an Extension option.

Third Stage: At this stage, if you are going to reside in a different city than the city you resided in last year, you should tick this option. If you are going to change the province, the system will transfer you to the residence application for the first time. If you are not going to change the province, you should choose the no option and fill in the information on your ID card and create your pre-registration form.

The Fourth 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 Fifth 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.

Stage Six; It is the insurance information field. For residence, you must have a private health insurance covering 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 in 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 SSI (SGK) 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, it is important 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.

Seventh Stage; It is short-term declaration information, all steps marked in red in this step must be filled in completely.

Eighth Stage; In this step, you should choose the option suitable for the purpose of your 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.

We recommend that you review the official website of Turkey,, before applying for the type of residence that is suitable for your purpose of stay in Turkey.
