Family residence in Turkey … to ensure a safe and comfortable stay

The family residence is granted to a Turkish citizen or a foreign resident who holds a work permit or a property ownership contract in Turkey and thus has the right to obtain residence for his family members even if they do not hold Turkish citizenship.

This type of residency is the best type of residency offered by the Turkish government. It is characterized by ease of extraction and facilitating the entry and exit of the holder. It also provides the opportunity to obtain Turkish citizenship after 3 years from the date of obtaining the family residency, especially for those married to a Turkish citizen.

Turkish law stipulates that the wife and children under the age of 18 are the people who can benefit from the family residence in addition to the parents over the age of 65 years.
