Where to hand in your application for residence/work permit or re-entry permit in Turkey

Visa applicants must personally hand in their application at one of our application centres.

Only the applicant will be allowed into the centre (accompanying family members and friends must wait outside). 

It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that all necessary documents are submitted. We advise you not to sign any forms unless you understand the content.

Unauthorised persons outside of the visa application centres sometimes offer unsolicited assistance with filling in application forms, etc. (often for very high prices). Neither the embassy nor the visa application centres work with these people and cannot be held responsible for lacking or incorrect guidance given by these individuals. Any use of these external services takes place at the applicant's own responsibility.

Additional documents required

In addition to the documents mentioned in the application forms, Turkish citizens must also submit an original and recent family declaration (nüfus kayit örnegi) translated to either English or Danish by an authorised translator.
