KTLN guides to residence permits updated PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 25 May 2017

DGMM Helpline

The Foreigners & International Protection Act - Law No. 6458 came into effect on 10th April 2014.  This law governs the way in which foreigners can obtain residence permits.  It also covers eVisas for tourists.  This link takes you to the English translation of Law No 6458

Over the years KTLN has attempted to keep our guides to Short Term Residence Permits (STRP) and Long Term Residence Permits (LTRP) up to date.  We have done this with help from KTLN readers who have been kind enough to provide feedback on their own experiences.

We have just updated the STRP Guide and the LTRP Guide and in this article we mention some of the most significant changes that we have included.

We have also updated the cost details to reflect current charges.

Ramazan in Kalkan 2017 PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 24 May 2017

Kalkan MosqueRamazan - a month long period of fasting in the Islamic calendar, occurs in Turkey this year between Saturday 27th May and Saturday 24th June.

During Ramazan, devout followers of Islam will not eat or drink between sunrise and sunset. 

Over recent years it has been especially hard, as Ramazan has fallen in the hot summer months.  This year it falls at a time when temperatures are still warm, but not quite as hot as recent years. 

The reason Ramazan shifts forward each year is because it is linked to the lunar calendar and not our Gregorian calendar.

All ASAT customers required to sign a new contract for the supply of water PDF Print E-mail

Water - ASAT

Important update 24th May 2017: see below.  If you own a property in the district of Kaş (which of course includes Kalkan) you should be aware that the local water company is trying to reach all of its customers with a request for them to call in to their local ASAT office to sign a document.  If you are a property owner we recommend that you read this report.

You may recall that the provision of water used to be the responsibility of the Belediye, but that all changed in April 2014 when this service was taken over by a company called ASAT.  The handover was not particularly smooth and no bills were issued for several months although everyone caught up with their payments eventually. 

ASAT is a completely separate legal entity and those of us who were originally billed by the Belediye have never been asked to sign a new contract with ASAT, which is irregular to say the least.  Hence the company now wishes to put that right.

Promoting Kalkan: Ilios Travel brings UK travel agents to Kalkan PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 18 May 2017

Ilios Travel - trip to Kalkan May 2017In these challenging times for tourism we report on a great initiative by tour operator Ilios Travel to bring UK travel agents over here to experience Kalkan for themselves.

Ilios Travel is part of the Visions Holidays Group and in partnership with Turkish Airlines, earlier this month they flew out nine travel agents from across England and Wales.  Their host in Kalkan was Rıdvan Zeybek, owner of Kalkan Experience Property and local agent for Ilios Travel. 

The aim of the trip was to convince the agents that they can be confident in promoting Kalkan as a first class holiday resort and to be able to reassure their clients from their own first hand experience that Kalkan is genuinely a safe and welcoming holiday destination.

Belediye workmen prepare Kalkan beach PDF Print E-mail

Kalkan beach

Belediye workmen are really digging Kalkan beach.

To be fair the shovels are supplemented by two fairly hefty diggers as they flatten out the beach before putting out the sun shades and sun beds.

It also looks like we have got a couple of new changing huts plus the plumbing for three showers right on the beach.

This may seem a bit late in the day to be doing this, as the tourist season has already started but last year the sun beds didn't go out until 1st June.

Just about everywhere is open now throughout the town.  We have updated our What's New report to show the latest situation.  Just a few late things to mention in the vicinity of the beach, up on Atatürk Caddesi, Kaptan's restaurant is set to reopen after quite a long break.  Neighbouring Sunset restaurant will be open shortly too.

Culture House art exhibition opens Monday 22nd May - Sara Allan PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 17 May 2017

Sara Allan artistThe Kalkan Culture House is embarking upon a new season of exhibitions, starting on Monday 22nd May with Köyceğiz based artist Sara Allan.

Sara was born in Hayling Island in 1951.  She spent much of her childhood delighting in nature.  Her need to paint, to find herself through painting, resulted from the years she spent as a shepherd in the mountains of Scotland and on the chalk downlands of Salisbury Plain.

Before finding her own vision, her apprenticeship was spent as a still-life artist, a genre exercising her need for discipline and method.  Sara has exhibited regularly in London for many years.

"From a tangle of lines, executed at great speed, offering no hint of the finished form, she then applies brilliant and surprising colour, using the lines as a form of scaffolding. She used pure colour. She favours large canvasses. What is truly surprising is the certainty, the feeling, as in nature, that each picture is inevitable, true, complete in itself. Her art flows out of her, vibrant, quivering with energy."  George Melly, 2002.

Kalkan Culture House celebrates Youth and Sports Day PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 16 May 2017

Youth & Sports Day 2017The national holiday that is Youth & Sports Day is to be celebrated at the Culture House in Kalkan starting at 19.00 on Friday 19th May.

To be specific the celebrations will take place on the street outside the Culture House.  Events include the spoken word (including poetry) in both Turkish and English, modern and traditional folk dancing, and a mini concert from the Kalkan Culture House Youth Group.

This day is all about celebrating the youth of Turkey.  Why not go along and give them your support.

Bear in mind that Youth & Sports Day is a national public holiday so banks and most government offices will be closed.
