New rules for obtaining a residence permit from 07/01/2022! Turkey has sharply tightened the rules for obtaining a residence permit, including when buying real estate, and long-term residence in the country!

Until July 1, 2022, the Turkish Migration Service closed 781 microdistricts in different cities of Turkey for issuing residence permits to foreigners, and from July 1, 2022, this figure was sharply increased by law to 1169 microdistricts!

The most popular areas of Antalya, Istanbul, and Alanya among Russian-speaking citizens were banned.
