The residence becomes relevant when a family member plans to stay in Türkiye 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.
