  1. UPDATE for Residency Applicants still in Limbo
    For the attention of Residency Applicants who applied BEFORE the new Residency appointment system was introduced (circa February 2020) but who have NOT heard back from the Interior Ministry regarding the status of their application(s):-

    -[Many thanks for your continuing efforts to keep people abreast of Residency developments Etc.]-

    The helpful clerks at the Interior Ministry Building in Lefkosa kindly explained to us that some Residency Applicants who applied at the start of this year (prior to the introduction of the Appointment system) but who have NOT yet been called for an appointment, may make one by calling 0392-611-10-88. (**We opted to revisit our local police station where they confirmed that our application under the old system had fallen between the cracks and directed us to Lefkosa with a note on which was written our FILE NUMBER). Anyway, when we got to Lefkosa Interior Ministry building, we presented our note & file number (…having been waved away in March as we lacked an appointment) and were duly processed without a problem.

    So, IF you have applied for Residency (i.e. completed your medical test, paid for your Insurance but have NOT been called for appointment, get your file number from your local police station and proceed to Lefkosa Interior Ministry building (with your medical results, your insurance payment receipts, the required stamps and your residency fee for one or two years depending) for final processing.

    The annual residency fee we paid was TL 440 per year (with the option to have the Residency permit stamped into your passport or preferably on a separate sheet of paper). In the event that you or your spouse’s passport needs renewing (our case) you will pay the annual residency fee in full and be given several months to enable you to have your passport renewed, after which you will then return and have your residency permit extended (whether for one or two years). Another appointment to do this is preferable but the helpful clerk indicated we could just walk in. ~ (‘Sweets to the Sweet’).
    Thank you!
