Welcome to the Awenza Group. We are experts in helping you extend your stay in turkey, our company has been working in these areas since the 1990’s.. Istanbul is the best city in the world in our opinion and many people arrive on a tourist visa and wish to stay much longer. This can be achieved by applying for a residence permit. The rules for this change often so its important to consult with a knowledgeable company. We also are able to help with residence visa renewal; in January 2020 many nations were banned from reapplying for a second continuing residence permit but now since SEPT 2020 this rule has been revised.
We can also help advise for those with overstay/illegal status. Please contact for details.
The general requirements for a first time residence permit (SEP 2020) are:
- You must have basic health insurance – we can help you obtain this and its included in our prices.
- You must rent a property with your name on the lease – if you need any Turkish language assistance please let us know.
- You must acquire a turkish Tax ID number – we can help with this and its included in our prices.
These requirements can change so please check with us before arriving. We are happy to help with your enquiry so please contact 0090 5468276151 (english speaking) or click here for Whatsapp Messaging , to discuss the next steps or the best option is to write a detailed email with your situation and plans and we can advise you everything, time , costs and documentation needs.

Please note there are some delays in completion this year due to COVID-19 but this is taken into account if the application is not completed before your tourist visa ends. We will inform you more details when you discuss your plans with us.
