I can't advise which would be the cheapest bank with regard to charges as it depends on how much money you put in, maybe others will advise you tomorrow.

I opened my bank account today with YapiKredi.
All I needed was a Passport, RP Ikamet and your Yabanci kimlik no.

I'm sure this has been posted before, but I just did a search and came up empty handed. I've read that there are some banks which expats can open bank accounts at if they don't have a residency permit. However, some posts I've read seem to conflict with other posts. Are you req'd to show proof of employment and/or residency when requesting a bank account? I'm not interested in some over-sized bank (like HSBC). A simple account without silly fees is all I would need. Thanks.
This is no longer valid. The rules have changed and foreigners no longer require a tax number to get a bank account. After you live in Turkey for 6 months you can call or otherwise contact your local foreign police branch and they can give you your Foreigner's turkish ID number. Or, you can look it up yourself. Go to : https://tckimlik.nvi...SorguModul.aspx and type in the number of your residence permit, and you can retrieve your " Yabanci T.C. Kimlik No " that you can use in many contextst. Yay!
