Dear visitor, welcome to our Short Term Residence Permit page.
Those Who Changed from Family Residence Permit to Short-Term Residence Permit
Family residence permit is a residence permit granted to family members of Turkish citizens or foreigners who have a residence permit in Turkey, regulated in Articles 34 and 37 of the Law on Foreigners and International Protection No. 6458.
In case of divorce of foreigners who are married to a Turkish citizen or the death of their supporter, a short-term residence permit can be changed from a family residence permit.
In Which Situations Can a Short-Term Residence Permit Be Applied?
- In cases where the foreigner residing with a family residence permit is divorced from his Turkish spouse;
In order for the foreigner residing with the family residence permit type to switch to the short-term residence permit type after the divorce from his Turkish spouse, the marriage must have lasted for at least 3 years. However, in cases where the foreign national spouse is a victim of domestic violence, the condition that the marriage lasted for 3 years is not required. The important thing here is that the foreign national adds the court decision regarding this to the file.
- In cases where the sponsor dies;
In cases where the sponsor dies, the foreigner can switch from a family residence permit to a short-term residence permit by presenting the death certificate. If the death certificate is received from the Turkish authorities, it must be e-signed/signed and sealed/stamped, and death certificates received from abroad must be Turkish translated, notarized and Apostille annotated.
Documents Required for Foreigners Who Changed from Family Residence Permit to Short-Term Residence Permit
- Residence Permit Application Form;
- Original or photocopy of passport or substitute document;
- Statement of having sufficient and regular financial means during the stay (the Administration may request supporting documents);
- Valid Health Insurance;
- Divorce or death certificate;
- The original of the family residence permit card.
In applications for transition from family residence permit to short-term residence permit due to divorce, in case of divorce from a Turkish citizen after 3 years or more, a court decision on divorce is requested. If the foreign national divorces a Turkish citizen due to domestic violence in less than 3 years, a court decision revealing the domestic violence is requested.
A death certificate is requested in applications for transition from family residence permit to short-term residence permit due to the death of the sponsor. Death certificates received from Turkish authorities must be e-signed/signed and stamped/stamped, while death certificates received from abroad must be translated into Turkish and have an Apostille annotation. In case of death of citizens of countries that are not party to the Apostille Agreement, it must be approved by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or the consulate of the state that issued the death certificate.
Foreigners who will switch from family residence permit to short-term residence permit must submit the original family residence permit.
