  • Strange New Development With KITAP?

    Hi everybody, I'll soon be eligible to extend my 5-year spouse sponsored KITAP into a lifetime one. Meanwhile, I've been employed for the last few years with an IMTA. Now the Immigration Office tells me that they have made a mistake these last few years and that my KITAP should have been sponsored by my employer. My lifetime extension, they say, should also be sponsored by my employer. I was wondering if anyone else has encountered this situation. Is this correct?

    Thanks for your feedback!

    (1) It is the first time I see something like that in this Forum .

    (2) I believe it is not correct , and I didn't see that stated in the Regulations I did read (unless there is a new one that I am not aware of it yet) .

    For example , lets say that your employer wants to hire you for only 1 year more , so your employer will not apply for an unlimited KITAP as it cost more and does not make sense for him/her . Apply for a KITAS or a KITAP depend on the sponsor's desire .

      The word "lifetime" can mislead some people . I want to say that there is no warranty that you will keep this KITAP as long as you live .

      For example , it will be cancelled if : you have to change sponsor (in case of divorce or spouse's death) , or if you go abroad and don't return within 1 year .
