I know that Turkey is still issuing 5 year residence permits (ikamet tezkeresi) as of March, 2014. However the whole visa system is changing this April. All the mentions of ikamets in documents I have been able to find about the new rules are about 1 year permits. Will 3 and 5 year permits continue to be an option under the new rules? If so to citizens of what countries will they be issued and what conditions must be met?
