Country Report: Status and rights of family members Last updated: 27/02/23
Upon arrival in Türkiye, family members receive a “family residence permit” for a maximum duration of validity of 3 years. Holders of this permit have access primary and secondary education institutions without obtaining a student residence permit.
Adult family members on a family residence permit may apply to transfer to a short-term residence permit after 3 years of residence in Türkiye. However, this condition may be waived in cases where the spouse has been a victim of domestic violence, or in the event of death of the sponsor.
