Obtaining Turkish Residency Permit
Could anyone tell me if they have bothered to go though the process, is it a typical Turkish rubber stamping exercise going from one office to another, what lead you to do it, and are there any advantages/disadvantages

Main advantage is you can stay up to 2 years without leaving Turkey.
Not a rubber stamp job. Certain documents required eg tapu or tenancy agreement. Check forum for full details.

There are many things that you cannot do without residency, including buy or sell a car, get government health insurance (SGK, social security), get a Turkish Driving licence. Getting it is relatively straightforward if you follow the many advice threads on here, Turkey Central or Doc Martin's website.

Do you mean full residency or the two years residency?

Personally, I look forward to all the benefits of full-residency which is not having to go through the horror of renewing my permit every two years :)

I think you need three or four two year tickets before you can opt for the full ticket sadly, and I am only on No 1

I think it is unbroken residency for 8 years with a limit to how long you have been out of Turkey during that period. We have had residency since 2003 but will need to wait another year to qualify under the time out of Turkey clause.

I think it's a total os 12 months in that time

Heard, but cannot confirm, that you now need 125000 Tl in Turkish account, up from 100000Tl, and must now have SGK.

I have never heard of the money side before, you can get it with a pension or could, I know a German who got it with neither.
