Since April 1, Turkey has changed the rules for extending a tourist residence permit. Now the Russians have to partially understand the Turkish language. Details on the Yandex.Zen channel were shared by a Russian woman who has been living in the Republic of Turkey for a long time.
According to her, complications rarely concern “extensioners” who have been living in Turkey for a year. However, now that very rare case has come.
“Now, when submitting documents, a foreign citizen who has lived in Turkey for at least 1 year will have to confirm his loyalty to the country by knowing the Turkish anthem. It will not be necessary to sing, it will be enough to read at least 5 quatrains of İstiklal Marşı to the officer clearly and loudly,” she explained and added that incorrect pronunciation and accent will not be taken into account.
The new requirement will increase the procedure for submitting documents. But the blogger suggested that after some time it would be optimized, for example, by reciting the anthem in chorus. We add that the Russians can exhale, because, the author clarified that it was an April Fool's joke.
