Residence Permit for Treatment Purposes

Many foreigners come to Turkey for using healthcare service and get treatment for short or long period of time. At first, foreigners come to Turkey on evisa or without visa which allows them to stay here for maximum up to 3 months.

In order to stay in Turkey legally for longer period of time in case if visa is not sufficient for medical care, you as a patient have a right to apply for short term residence permit for treatment purposes. In this case, foreigner needs to apply for residence permit while his/her visa is still valid by filling the form online at the immigration system and get an appointment date at the Immigration Office. By getting an appointment date  within the validity of  visa foreigner may stay here legally untill randezvous even if his/her visa is expired. Please be informed that in such touristic places as Istanbul, Antalia and Izmir the appointment date is given in a 1-2 months.

After getting an appointment date, patient should prepare the list of the documents which should be submited on appointment date as;

  1. Application form, which will be available after filling form online at https://e-ikamet.goc.gov.tr/
  2. Passport copy
  3. E-visa or copy of the entry stamp (for free visa citizens)
  4. 4 biometric photos
  5. Valid private health insurance ( the quote of policy could be found here)
  6. Proof of local residential address as:

A)Notorized rental contract in case if patient rent an apartment

B) Signed and stamped supportive document from hospital if patient is staying at the hospital

C)Notarized letter of undertaking from a host if the patient is staying in a 3rd person’s (Turkish citizen) residence ( if a host is married, notary letter of undertaking should be from the spouse of the host as well)

  1. Document showing the duration of treatment, which must be signed by head physician and a physician and sealed/stamped.
  2. Bank statement from abroad or from the local bank account.
  3. Receipt of residence permit fee. The fee depends on the applicant’s country of origin.

Moreover, care takers of the patient are able to get residence permit for this period of time as well. In case if the patient is child, then parents are able to get short term touristic residence permit for taking care after the child ( patient) for the treatment period. However, Immigration officer will request for an Appostilled birth certificated, which should have notary approved Turkish translation. If applicant’s country is not among 8/9 Apostille convention, birth certificate must be legalized by the state’s Consulate in Turkey and approved by the Ministry of Foreing Affairs in Turkey.

If  as a care taker of the minor child will be presented only one parent in Turkey, other parent should provide an Apostilled parental consent declaration and have notary public approved Turkish translation

If the care taker is a spouse, marriage certificate as an evidence should be submitted to the Immigration Office together with other required documents. Please be informed that if this marriage certificate obtained from other than Turkish authorities, it must be Apostilled and has notary public approved Turkish translation. If applicant’s country is not among 8/9 Apostille convention, marriage certificate must be legalized by the state’s Consulate in Turkey and approved by the Ministry of Foreing Affairs in Turkey.

I highly recommend them! I got my residence permit done in less than a month.Marta is nice and patient and guides you... through all the processes. She even got me a driver to get me from the immigration office to the tax office back and forth. It was all done in 3h (you have to wait in line tho, there is no other way). If you don't want to waste time trying to deal with your residence permit, it definitely worth using their service!read more
