CRISIS IN THE POPULATION, IN THE DEED! ‘PLEASE SOMEBODY COME BACK TO US’

With gradual pandemic normalization in Turkey in effect, the demand for Turkish passports and Turkish identity ID card transactions increases, and even appointments take days because of the intensity. Due to flexible working and quarantine staff, population directorates are unable to keep up with the demands.

The official website of Turkish government General Directorate of Land Registry and Cadastre has the same density.

HERE ARE SOME COMPLAINT COMMENTS FROM THE PUBLIC

* The state has built a system called Web Land Registry, but no one can get an appointment. We used to go and apply for the deed, and we would have a sale that day. No one can get an appointment for the last 1 month. People have now started selling from notaries.

* We can not enter the title deed for a month now solve this problem. People become victims.

* Turkish and Foreigner national citizens are very victimized in this regard. Appointment procedures made on the web Land Registry do not respond to the appointment. It should be available on the same day. It has been 1 week since I made the application, I’m still waiting for an appointment response.

* It is very difficult to make an appointment for land deeds. An appointment can be made in a month. We made an appointment a month later, and we left. We need a building management plan. A fee must be paid for the transaction. And for that, I was told that the phone would come with a password. After 45 days, no password has been reached. When we go to report, they don’t let us in because we don’t have an appointment. What do we do if this password never gets through?

IS IT NORMAL THAT IT DOESN’T COME ALL THESE DAYS?

Turkey Population Directorates, where Turkish driver’s licenses, Turkish national identity cards and Turkish passports are processed for Turkish citizens, are unable to meet the growing demand due to the beginning of gradual normalization and the introduction of permits for foreign travel. It’s just that you have to wait days even for the appointment screen to open. Turkish Officials attribute the intensity to the fact that many staff did not show up for work due to the length of the Eid holiday, the reported presence of coronavirus-contact staff and flexible working. “As is known, given the long holiday holiday, the fact that most staff are on leave due to flexible working, the opening of foreign flights and the increase in trips abroad due to sports competitions, this seems normal,“ an official said.

I HAVEN’T HAD AN APPOINTMENT IN TWO WEEKS

Those who can’t get appointment are trying to make their voices heard with complaints on government websites:

* I need to make an appointment for a Turkish passport from the most urgent. I’ve been looking for a date for 2 weeks. I’m sick and tired of renovating the site morning and night, calling 199. The system works so badly. 100 percent of the appointments are full.

* I lost my identity, I filed a missing persons report, but I can’t get an appointment for days. I need it for important work, but I can’t find any space. I enter the dating system morning and night. I can’t find an appointment from any population agency that is neither close to me nor far away from me. I need my ID immediately.

* I can’t get an appointment for a driver’s license for 1.5 months. I’m calling, they’re playing music on the phone. A solution must be found.

.
I’M GETTING MARRIED, BUT MY IDENTITIES ARE OLD

* Because of the marriage, I need to change my last name on my ID and passport, I have been trying to make an appointment since April 7. I have a wedding in June. If I will go, they won’t take my file without an appointment. Please find a solution now.

* I’m trying to make an appointment with the population office for a driver’s license. Although I have been looking at it morning and evening for a month, the occupancy rate of each district is 100 percent. I don’t understand how this is happening. Happens again I’m calling on the phone. Please find a solution to this service.

.
I HAVE MY DRIVER’S LICENSE FILE READY

* I have received my driver’s license file for 2 months, but I applied to the population directorates, my hand remained empty. They say, ’we’re getting a date’ but we can’t get a government appointment in Istanbul. How can we get it, where else can we apply to the appointment system in Turkey? Please see my complaint.

* I want to make an appointment for the Ministry of Interior Population Directorate for a long time. Every time, the dates are full. I haven’t been able to perform my procedures in months. I want to make a change of residence, so I can’t enroll in any school I want, I can’t take an open high school or a driver’s license exam. This dating system has been full for months and ALO 199 is responding to calls with stand-by music.
