Earlier this month The Ege Eye newspaper were informed by some of its readers that the Kuşadası Police station were now only issuing Residence permits for 1 year to Irish Citizens.

Our reporter contacted the Aydin police station who confirmed the above was true.

More confusion then arose when citizens of other nationalites were being told the same ” No more than 1 year ”.

Our reporter then visited the Kuşadası police station were he was told the new law applied to all nationalities.


Many of our readers then contacted us to say they had recieved anything from 2 to 5 years residence permit.

Our investigations are ongoing at the moment and we will be speaking to the ministry in Ankara to clarify the position so watch this space!

Yesterday a British couple applied and got a 5 year residency.
