Once your Student Residence Permit (SRP) application is submitted to the Migration Directorate, it will take a few weeks to be processed. It is solely your responsibility to stay updated by following the information on our “Tracking SRP Application” page.
After submitting your documents to the Migration Directorate, it will take approximately 30-60 days to receive your SRP card.
The address given in the “Contact Details in Türkiye” section of the online application form will be the delivery address of your SRP card.
If you put the address of the university, your SRP card will be delivered to the Registrar’s Office (Kayıt ve Öğrenci İşleri Direktörlüğü) and you will be sent an email once it is ready to be collected. Once you receive the email, you can pick it up from them at ELC Building, Ground Floor.
If you did not put the university address on your application form, you can find the tracking number of the card on the e-ikamet website once it is sent or by calling 157. Then you can track it on the National Postal Service (PTT) tracking page (you can call 444 1788 PTT for tracking inquiries). Once you receive your card, make sure to email a copy of your card (scan or a photo of both sides) to the Registrar’s Office for them to take care of the official records.
Visiting student, post-doc researcher, and faculty family member residence permit cards will still be collected from ICO if they provide the university address on their online applications.
If you do not receive your SRP within 2 months after application, please contact us by creating a Trackit request through Dean of Students Trackit / ICO Requests.
