What are the Documents Required for Residence Permit Applications in Turkey?

Applying for a residence permit in Turkey is a highly straightforward process. However, Turkish is the only official language in the country and applicants must carry out all their application processes in Turkish. Therefore, if you are not fluent in Turkish, we recommend working with a professional agency such as our company.

We can help you to make your documents ready and handle the entire process, from application preparation to obtaining the residence permit, on your behalf. On the other hand, you can still carry out all these operations on your own. If you wonder about the required documents for obtaining a residence permit in Turkey, here they are!
