So, just for your curiosity we have created a list of the most expensive and cheapest Turkish Residence Permit fees by Nationality. Enjoy!

Citizens of Norway, Serbia, Fiji or Chile pay an Eye-watering 1,100.17 TL in fees per year. (12 month permit) And that doesn't even include the 58.50TL permit card fee. Ouch! (Approx. 500 USD)

Those from the UK, USA, Holland, New Zealand, Italy, Sweden, Pakistan and many other countries, pay approx. 80 USD per year. (+58.50TL)

Citizens of Israel, Albania, Japan & Cambodia pay just 56 USD per year. (+58.50TL)

It's not a bad deal for those citizens from Jordan, Singapore or Spain at only 39 USD per year. (+58.50TL)

For Russians, Ethiopians and those from Hong Kong; the price is a mere 25 USD per year. (25 USD) (+58.50TL)

Those from Egypt, Iraq, or Ivory Coast pay only 11 USD per year (+58.50TL)

If you are the lucky owner of an Irish, Czech or TR of Northern Cyprus, passport, sit back and smile, as your cost per year is "0". ZERO. However, you may have to dig deep in your wallets to pay that extra 58.50 TL fee for your permit card.

If you are a German Citizen who is married to a Turkish National, the Govt. fee doesn't apply to you either. (with the exception of the 58.50TL)

The Residence Permit tax is of course only one part of your expense, And other costs to consider include;
Mandatory Turkish Health Insurance, Notary fees, *Single entry fee or a *Consultancy fee. (if you choose to engage professional assistance with your permit)
