According to the aforementioned law, the application of facilities in residence permit reviews has been canceled, so the review of each foreigner and his residence permit will be organized independently. A foreigner can also review himself to obtain a residence permit, or review through his legal representative or through his attorney representative. However, the administration can, when necessary, request the presence of the foreigner during the review. A provision has been added to Law No. 6735 and to Article 21 of Law No. 6458 stating that intermediary and competent institutions have the right to review in the name of the foreigner to obtain a residence permit. The intermediary and competent institution means the institution that is delegated by the General Directorate, and the specifications of this institution and the framework of its tasks are defined by legal regulations.
