The residence becomes relevant when a family member plans to stay in Turkey longer than the amount of time permitted through a visa or permission to stay without a visa. This is most often between 30 to 90 days. If any family member is expected to stay longer than the visa expiration date, a residence permit application must be made within the visa or permission to stay without visa length. The sooner, the better, since a residence permit will make the travels overseas easier, allow the individual to open a bank account, and perform other administrative procedures more easily.
Dependent Residence Permits are issued for a maximum length of 2 years each time; however, this length is first contingent upon the residence permit of the benefactor.
