I understand that when initially applying for residence you have to produce bank statements showing at least 6000 in funds. Is this a requirement when renewing annually or just for the first time.



Any information gratefully received.

Hi Dusterbruce

As long as you have a current bank account in NC which shows having funds in there is no stipulation as to how much has to be in there.

Thanks Karen.



I have account at Turkish Bank. I am expecting to move over later this year or early 2009 but would like to keep my property in UK, just in case.

I think you'll find a lot of people have kept a base. You can then legally keep your NHS card and it also ensures you get your increases in OAP.

I got away with 5000 YTL in a local account which is what they told me at the police station in Girne a few months ago.



Maybe I was lucky because I am not British otherwise they may have said 5000 GBP. They had no interest in overseas account statments, rental income statements or anything else that might evidence the fact you can support yourself.

Your welcolme Katara



Best of luck with your application.



Also if anyone has a non UN passport make sure they don't stamp the residency permit in it as if you want to go South or to Greece they can give you a hard time and even deny entry if they are having a bad day. You need to tell this several times and when yo pay for the permit otherwise they will do it automatically. They will stamp it on a separate sheet of paper if you request it.



As usual if your an EU ctizen tehy just ignore the stamp.

Hello Aussie...



thanks God this was a question from a friend..I don't need this.



But I've never heard that they give an official stamp on a piece on paper.

Are you sure that you can get a residency permit on it?

I thought it has to be in the passport...

Peeps

your residency permit MUST be stamped in your passport. Only when you cross from north to south on a trip or when you arriving or leaving from your holiday then you get a piece of paper to fill in and then thats stamped. Residency permits, which is your yearly entitlement to stay here for that period of time, is an official stamp which must go in your passport.

Re bank accounts, my parents have produced their UK bank account statement every year with no comeback at all, but not sure what the minimum amount is now. So it doesn't need to be a TRNC account. This must be procuded every year when you renew your permit.

Mind you, you may deal with someone who says different - I hate to say it but the rules change so many times, the staff don't keep up!

If anyone would like the procedure in as much detail as possible, I can post it, but bear in mind it could change next week!

Sorry Aussie but not sure where your info comes from - do you live here? Message 9 is inaccurate - whether you have a residency permit or a work permit, the Greeks DO NOT make a problem for you at all. If you have a UK passport, most of the time they don't even look at when you pass through the Greek side. The Turkish side will look at it, because on their system your details will pop up and they will check your permit if you have one, to make sure that its valid - thats it.
