Help ??? We have lodged our visa application (a week ago) and have heard back from someone in the embassy twice already. Fingers crossed its a good sign. My issue is that the defacto status we lodged under requires evidence of living together for 12 months prior to lodgement. We have a lease for the first 6 months but only emails and payment reciept for the second lease. They have asked us to provide a lease signed by the landlady. The problem with that is she is Spanish and lives in Spain and doesn not want to provide a signed lease for personal reasons (or should I say legal reasons?). What can I do????? If we cant prove we lived together for that second 6 month period I am really worried they will reject it based on that even though we have been lving together the whole time I have been in Turkey.
Any advice ??

RaneeAnne, I would write a letter saying you have asked the landlady for a copy of the lease but she cannot/will not provide it. You should then attach to the letter proof you have that you were living there at the time ie. copies of receipts or bank account evidence that you paid each month/week or however you paid, copies of utility bills you paid during the period and even a statutory declaration from neighbours that you were there at the time you said. Good luck, we are waiting for our official answer, but have been told on phone to get ready to send passport, so it is looking good for us at least.

Thanks KanK! I will take your advice and talk to my previouos neighbours and see if they can supply statements. I will ask my partner to contact the embassy as well and ask if anything else with help.
I hope you get your visa soon. Fingers crossed for you!

soooo happy our visa was granted today

our timeline:
23/02/2011 app sent reg'd post (prospective marriage)
26/02/2011 - telephone call from embassy acknowledging receipt and sending a parcel containing further info
05/03/2011 - parcel rec'd (dated 1/3) photos sent back and request for new docs x7
07/03/2011 - all docs sent and received but they "lost" them, lucky were sent reg'd post so we tracked them down to the name of the person who signed for them in embassy and magically they "found" them again! This took three weeks (wasted time ) but they were good about phoning and emailing us when they found them.
15/04/2011 - Applicant was given telephone interview (lots of qu's asked!) and they said they would send forms for medicals, these arrived next day
26/04/2011 - medicals done
06/05/2011 - medicals sent by embassy to HOC Australia for review
11/05/2011 - HOC confirmed medicals received.
04/07/2011 - HOC pass medicals
12/07/2011 - asked to send passport as visa is approved

now just waiting for the passport to come back and then we can finally start our new life (and next visa, lol), added bonus they didn't ask for an AOS which i was sure would be requested! Has anyone else from Turkey heard about theirs????

Just wondering if anyone else is in the process of filing an offshore application in Turkey at the moment. I'm getting ready to submit my application in the next few months (probably November) and would love to hear from others in the same situation, or even from those of you who have already been through it. At the moment I would really love some help in certifying documents and witnesses for declarations. Has anyone been through these processes in Turkey?
