Excuse me have you got any response from the embassy?
Stylodb:
Hey guys.. please if anyone had this issue should let me know how they went about it..
I went for an Interview for student visa. And then after one week, I went back to pick it up. They gave me only my passport with a letter attached to it. The letter said that

" my Visa Application has been forwlwarded to Turkish Authority for Examination, that why will contact me as soon as they get a reply from them"

This is the 5th week now. And I've not heard anything from the embassy. I called them and they said they haven't receive a response yet from.the Authority.
My fear is that the school is resuming this month end. And I have to be there before the school resumes.
Has anyone gone through this process and what is an advice on what I should do please
Help a brother..
Really bothered.

Re: Genuie Info About Turkey.i Want To Travel There. by TadeDetule: 8:27pm On Nov 07

Can someone please point to the page where I can get info abt Tanzania visa. I know I have seen it in this thread before but I v been searching but could not find it.

I urgently need this info.

Thanks
Hi there!
If you are a Nigerian passport holder, Tanzania is a very controversial destination in terms of visas and immigration because you could be deported even with a visa.
Normally Nigerians were entitled to visas on arrival at Tanzania however the policy changed and not only did the policy change, but Nigerians have a negative stereotype at Tanzania... so, if you don't have a very strong(governmental) invitation or connections to influential people in Tanzania that you can call when you are being scrutinized, then please halt the trip until the matter is resolved- because I got to find out recently that Tanzania has a diplomatic uncertainty with Nigeria.
However if you hold a different passport you are free to go.
Sorry for derailing this thread

It's possible, Turkey is very lenient with residency permits, but you have to present the right documents to that effect- (sounds easy but that could be the difficult part)

@Sloye5
I like how you are keeping this thread going, especially with the positivity, however I feel you need to tell people the other side of the coin, because the impression here is that Turkey is rosy, to the point that people are chunking/selling all out to pay tuition for school and hoping in a Turkish hussle to cover grounds & stabilize.

It doesn't work that way o.
Sloye5 may be comfortable in Turkey because he is cut out for the place, but what works for A may not work for B.
Please plan yourself and mentally prepare yourself for Turkey before the journey otherwise you would be caught flatfooted.

Firstly Turkey is a very language sensitive country esp in some regions. I don't know if sloye5 didn't mention this, but even in getting the right deals as a business person in Turkey or even jobs, Turkish language is very important.

Secondly as a student it is almost impossible to work and pay your fees while going to school simultaneously except during the summer, so if that's your plan...i.e; come fall semester and work during winter to pay tuition for spring, then you are in for it... especially if your school is a private university that has tuition in USD, 1000USD is about 5000+TRY which can be raised with 4months "Full time Salary"... that's not funny.

Thirdly for those planning to teach English in Turkey, try to study Turkish in Nigeria to some extent because it's very important, you could get underpaid as a teacher because of this, with the excuse that you are still undergoing a training process in Turkish pedagogy regardless of your resume due to that deficiency ... & trust them they will use you based on that excuse... except you get verrry lucky.

Fourthly Turkish wages are "pays per day", I am sure you all already know. So for those thinking about factory jobs, prepare for a very stressful hussle, you would get paid, but a days job could end up being 14hrs, yes it's called overtime-which u are not paid for in most cases.

Fifth; If your aspiration is to play football, Africans are acknowledged to have superior sporting abilities in Turkey, but unfortunately they also know about Africans and age faking, so getting an agent front you for a club would be very difficult especially if you can't speak Turkish as a rookie player. There's a good chance you would be given a youth program for 5years even if you get scouted, just to see if you would grow grey hair as a supposed "19 year old"

Sixth for those who intend to cross to Europe or the US from Turkey... lol Turkey is not like that o, even Greece that could driven to by road, is a huuuge problem to visit... in fact it's even easier from a legal standpoint to get a visit visa to the US or Canada from Nigeria than it is from Turkey especially of late, so put that in mind... except you want to join the Syrians and cross country.

Turkey is a good place but there are alot of negatives as well... the truth is not everyone is cut out for Turkey, so my chip up here don't just travel out of Nigeria in desperation, look before you leap.

Check other countries that match your preference and proportion before making a decision... you never know, the visa could be easier than you think.

Of Course, Yes!
CELTA, TESOL, DELTA etc are very strong English teaching certificates that are recognized and mostly a teaching requirement in Asia, and the Gulf regions. In your case CELTA can easily get you an international school, the OND doesn't matter- I have met some Americans without Degrees who teach English with just (CELTA, TESOL) certifications *although their cases are different o, they are considered to have English as their mother tongue*

If the candidate has a good knowledge of Turkish then you are good to go, all you need to show is that you are good with children (if teaching pre school), experience in this case helps.

But to get a job as a teacher in Turkey, I suggest you visit yourself- Get a visit visa, go to Turkey and search for the school, walk into the desired school and present yourself- Tip; Turkish people get a kind of excitement when they hear a black person speak Turkish, like they can tell you anything when in that excited state, including accepting to pay you double lol.
Agents can help, but since you speak Turkish do the hunt, strike the deal yourself, because you will get a better offer!

Dear Sir/Madam,

Visa appications submitted to our Embassy are evaluated based on the documents provided as well as the interview conducted with the applicant.

Your application has not been evaluated positively as a result of the above mentioned process.

You can reapply by booking a new appointment after six months.

Turkish Embassy in Abuja. I was sent this message from the embassy yesterday,I paid the part payment of the fees which is 2100$ from Istanbul aydin University, and I had about 4m on my dad statement of account pls can someone tell me where I went wrong Incase I want to reply again after 6 month

Quite sorry for the denial.
Something was definitely wrong with some document that you provided... or perhaps a document did not match your profile. If you are very sure that your documents were hitch free, contact your school to talk to the embassy.
However you can defer the admission and try again after the summer of 2019 because I am not sure you would get your money back "completely" in the case of a refund (it's usually the case)
