THOUSANDS of British expats in Turkey were today given the possible best news the residency permit cost has been slashed to just 50 a year and will be effective from today (Friday April 1).



The good news was confirmed yesterday (Thurs Mar 31) by British Embassy officials.



The costs of a residency are now:

one-year is now 120TL (about 50 or 80 US dollars);

two years is now 210TL (140 US dollars)

three years is now 300TL (200 US dollars)

four years is now 390TL (260 US dollars)

five years is now 480TL (320 US dollars)



This means that a five-year residency can bought for about 195 (at today's rate) a massive price reduction on the previous 370 ( 925lira ) being asked for a one year permit. The cost of a new blue permit book is still 149TL.

this is good news for expats in Turkey wonder if it will come to NC, it used to cost each person 4625 lira for a 5 year permit a rip off so its good news all round

Australian and Irish passport holders pay for 90 day entry visa whilst Kiwis are exempt but not sure about residency fees, do they discriminate between different Countries? A TR Government link would help but does the date of the announcement got anything to do with it?

No it's not April fool, it started on the 1st of April and what a savings you will make, but they are going to bring in the 90/180 visa, but with residency permit so cheap you do not have to go every 3 months to the Greek islands to renew your visa. this will bring down the Greek ship owners who rely on the expats going to renew their visas every 3 months, a lot of UK expats have now renewed their residency permits and they are paying the new fees, win win situation for both Turkey and expats.
