Marriage to Turkish Citizen (Istanbul)

Hi everybody,

I have some urgent questions;

July 9th I'll arrive in Turkey and October 19 I'll marry. As with my tourist visa I need to leave Turkey before 9 October.

Could someone give me some advices? Shall I immediately apply for the long stay residence permit or rather for the short one and apply once over to extend when I am married? Does that change anything?

I don't want to go back before my marriage so I actually need some extra permission to stay if not I go back for a while and when I come back I apply for my residence permit?

Will i need to have things changed if I have my Ikamet before my marriage. Because logically they actually need to know that the main reason why I am asking for my Ikamet is because I'll marry a Turkish citizen.

Thank you in advance.
