CLOSING TO RESIDENCE PERMITS IN 8 DISTRICTS OF ISTANBUL

Turkey iResidence – The Turkish Interior Minister announced the closure of residence permits in eight districts of Istanbul. There will be no new foreign registration in these districts.

Interior Minister made a statement to members of press after the Istanbul Migration Assessment Meeting. Referring to the decisions they made today 07 October 2022, Soylu said the following:

Kucukcekmece, Başakşehir, Bağcılar, Avcılar, Bahçelievler, Sultangazi, Esenler and Zeytinburnu were already closed to temporary protection in Istanbul, closed to all residence permits. In other words, there will no longer be a new foreign registration in these districts.

NO STRANGER SESSION ALLOWED

We also had two districts here before, Esenyurt and Fatih. Thus, together with Esenyurt and Fatih, 10 districts are closed to foreign residents who may come after this.

.
STUDENT, INVESTOR, ILLNESS

What’s the exception? If he is a student, if he is in the district, the university may be if he has won there, or if he has bought a house as an investor, this may be the case. Apart from that, there is also the issue of illness. So it’s a health issue in terms of family integrity.

In Turkey, the total number of our Syrian brothers, whom we describe as under temporary protection, is not 10, 20, 25 million. The state of the Republic of Turkey is a serious state. It is the state that can put forward its document, its writing. The total number is 1 million 363 thousand 980, including those who regularly stay in Turkey with a residence permit, that is, students, work and family residence, employees of foreign companies, those who are foreign and work in Turkey, those who work in the field of agriculture. These are also residents.

HOW MANY SYRIANS ARE THERE IN ISTANBUL?

551 thousand 829 people under the temporary protection status of Syrians in Istanbul. I say again, 3 million 646 thousand of them, 551 thousand 829 of them are in Istanbul. 715 Thousand 651 people staying with them in Istanbul, whether they are working, students, family, or short-term tourism residents. The number of asylum refugees in Istanbul is small; 3 thousand 799. The total number of Syrians in Istanbul is 1 million 271 thousand 279.
