Residents (3)

The Foreigners & International Protection Act - Law No. 6458 came into effect on 10th April 2014.  This law governs the way in which foreigners can obtain residence permits.  It also covers eVisas for tourists.  This link takes you to the English translation of Law No 6458

It's taken a while to develop an understanding of how the new rules work.  This KTLN guide was completely re-written (December 2015) and reflects the updated position as at May 2018.  It has been drafted with the help of local DGMM officials and also foreigners who have gone through the permit application process.

With help and feedback from KTLN readers we aim to keep it up to date as a valuable resource for people who wish to apply for a residence permit.

The KTLN Kalkan Guide to making a will

The Turkish word for a will is 'Vasiyet'.  Making a will is 'Vasiyet hazırlamak'.

For Turkish people there are rules on inheritance, which to some extent restrict what can be done with their property when they die.

For foreigners in Turkey things are different.  They can dispose of their property in accordance with their own wishes, but they need to make a will to make sure this happens.

In this article we provide our understanding of how things work in relation to Turkish and English rules of inheritance.
