The grantee is responsible for acquiring the proper visa for his/her grant. The Turkish Fulbright Commission requests the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs to inform the relevant Turkish Embassy/Consulates in the United States of the Study/Research Grantees' names to ease their visa application process.

\n

Grantees are required to pay their own research visa application fees. Residency permit application fees will be covered by the Turkish Fulbright Commission. In addition, costs associated with acquiring any official documentation required for the residency permit application, including a valid health insurance in Turkey, are also covered by the Turkish Fulbright Commission.

\n

Research Permission (Araştırma İzni): In addition to acquiring the appropriate visa, depending on the nature of the research project, some grantees may be expected to obtain research permission from the relevant ministries, research centers, museums, or libraries. Grantees are responsible for obtaining research permission (if necessary) for their research projects; however, the Turkish Fulbright Commission will provide guidance.
