  2. The Turkish language, generally, has a direct relationship to the Altay section of the Ural-Altaic lingual family. It belongs similarly with the Finnish and Hungarian language. Mostly, it is spoken across Central Asia, North Western China, and Southern Siberia. Even if they had various dialects related to the Turkish language, more foreigners and investors desire to put up their business in Turkey. The growing business in the country demands for Turkish transcription. The Turkish transcription is necessary for transcribing business documents such as contracts, forums, and meetings.

  5. Great feedback, thank you! I'll try to discreetly get a better idea of what her preferences are around food, and having multiple options is also a great idea. I'll be sure to let you know how everything goes in January.
  6. Hi, I am planning a road trip from Altrincham, UK to Turkey next summer. Can anyone please help explain the customs process for the car? Do I need a carnet or any other form of document to drive from Europe into Turkey? I will be driving a 1983 Toyota Land Cruiser with a 3.4 litre diesel engine and the vehicle is registered in the UK with UK plates. Also which are the safest countries to travel between Germany and Turkey? I want to maximise on site seeing along the route and on the way back drive through Greece. Many thanks in advance for any information.

  8. Vicenza is a city in the Veneto region of northeast Italy. It’s known for the elegant buildings designed by the 16th-century architect Andrea Palladio. These include the Palladian Basilica and the Palazzo Chiericati, now home to an art gallery. Nearby, also by Palladio, the Teatro Olimpico replicates a classic outdoor theater, indoors. On the outskirts of town, the hilltop Villa La Rotonda has 4 identical facades. Lots to do in Vicenza ... see here ... https://www.getyourguide.com/s/?q=Vicenza&lc=l32445&date_from=2019-11-21&date_to=2019-11-22&customerSearch=1&searchSource=1

  10. Hi Dave, Welcome to the forum. Have you asked the firm that you work for if they will get a residency for your wife? Some companies will do that. Can't advise on when to apply. You will need Marriage cert, it will need translating into Turkish and noterising. I believe that your wife will have health insurance as your dependent if your company is paying your Turkish social security (SGK). Also bring back evidence of educational certificates in case you wish to take up a Turkish driving licence.
  11. Ye but only up to 120 days,many users have had the phone IMEI number blocked long before that,as early as 30 says from switching it on with a Turkish sim inserted.
  12. Hello, I'd like to send some personal items (clothes and books) from Turkey to the UK. Can anyone recommend a good company? I've got one quote so far to send roughly 80kg/ 4 cubic metres for 2000 euros, by road. This seems to be overly priced. Am i right?
  13. Just the other day IbrahimAbi gave me the name of someone I hadn't heard of before by the name of Wilco Van Herpan from Holland who is all over You Tube and on a channel called Iz TV. So, naturally I thought I would take a look. Interesting stuff. But it got me thinking. Who do you know that is famous or semi-famous in Turkey, who speaks reasonable Turkish and who runs an interesting channel or appears on the TV or in the media. To be honest I don't know of many but I can think of three off the top of my head. Rikki Roath the travel presenter although she is half Turkish and half American, the previous British Ambassador Richard Moore and Paul Dwyer whose You Tube video is shown here. Who else can we add to the list?
  14. Thanks Ibrahim. Appreciate the kind words but it just bugs me that I have got so far with it and yet just never quite getting there. Wilco Van Herpen? I am going to have to take a look at that. Cheers.
  15. Ibrahim abi Thanks There are many actually kargolar. But, maybe as you said it would be expensive. In a price calculation ptt page some countries like Australia does not exist or it is my fault?
  16. Hi Crystal, welcome. Reading your post left me very concerned at your situation. Your description of your boyfriend's behaviour shows up so many red flags, if I was in your shoes I would never marry him but run away as far as possible. He sounds very controlling, he would never change & you would never be happy. If you have not yet met his family you have no way of knowing the truth about his background. Sorry my thoughts may not be to your liking, but there's no way to whitewash someone like that. In the end the decision is yours to make, & I wish you well.....
  17. Hey guys... i met my bf last year and he was my first bf, he loved me so much even more than i loved him, we were not match so i wanted to breakup several times but all the time he cried and begged to not doing that, all the time i felt sad so i accepted and didnt breakup,hopped that things will become better, afterwards my love toward him increased but at the same time our relationship became boring to him and it was all his fault cause he is not fun guy and he just likes to sit down and complaine about life ! anyway i loved him because he respected me and he was pure and kind and emotional but afterwards some turkish girl entered to our life,her ex recently treated so bad to her and first time i met her i felt that she doesnt like me and she is so jealous about our relationship and how my ex was respecting me, afterwards she started to treat me bad and rudly so i asked my bf to not see her anymore but he didnt accept that and we had our big fight of our relationship because of that which was so stupid, after that he started to act to me so cold and i felt like im in a war with all the turkish people, it was like thay are all against me suddenly and want to broke me, the i broke up and he accepted it this time, its been 4 months now, we both are student in hu and first time that we came back fron our countries he started to act in a way that he wants me back but after one month that he actes like that and i asked him if he wants to get back lets talk about it he said that he is not ready for a relationship and mybe in future we could get back, he is still hanging out with that girl and also he says he still has feelings for me but he is not ready. i dont know what to do to get him back and i cant even understand him, cause he doesnt let me go but also he doesnt want to be with me and prefered his friends.it was like just because she was turkish and i was not, he prefered her. im sure that he sees the girl as a sister but also im sure that she doesnt let him get back to me i dont know what to do and im surprized that how he lost that much if love toward me and how he can deal with break up if he still loves me as he said
  18. Yes there are some blocks going up near by. Hopefully the land across from our living room will be left undeveloped. I quite like seeing the sheep taken there to graze a couple of times a week.
  19. About the worst international shipping story I was told to me by a friend who moved to Islamabad, from Leeds. Their shipping company went bust between sending off the cargo and filing the paperwork. Their cargo arrived but was held in Karachi for nearly a year while things were sorted out.
  20. I don't know specifically of a "seasonal work" visa, it's just a regular work visa. Some companies, such as tourism companies, hire seasonal workers during the peak season because of their foreign language skills. Or they hire foreign entertainers to put on shows for tourists, that kind of thing. The work visa is a single-entry visa, for the purpose of work. You apply for one while coordinating with your employer. While your employer applies in Turkey for your work permit, you go to the local Turkish embassy or consulate and present your visa application package. Then the person at the embassy or consulate gives you a registration number, which you send to your employer for them to complete the work permit application. If the work permit is approved, your work visa will also be approved. Then you go to the consulate and pick up your work visa and travel to Turkey. After you arrive you receive your work permit. The work permit will be valid for one year, or until the end of your contract, whichever comes soonest. So the only difference for a seasonal worker would be that their work permit would end as soon as their job ends, and that would probably be at the end of the season. An important note is that a work permit is only good for one employer. If you change jobs or get another job, your new employer will have to apply for a new work permit for you. If you can't find another employer and your work permit is coming to an end, you can apply for a short-term residence permit within 60 days before your work permit expires. Otherwise, when your work permit expires, you will have ten days to leave Turkey. Concerning finding a good employer, you could do some Google searches to see if any former employees have made online complaints about the company you're interested in working for. I've seen comments (positive and negative) about various language schools in sites which specialize in those kinds of jobs, but I haven't seen anything like that for other types of companies. I can suggest one company in Antalya that helps foreigners find jobs and also offers assistance with residence and work permits. Their website is www.residencepermitturkey.com. I say suggestion, not recommendation, since I don't personally know what kind of services they provide or their level of quality. But I do know that they process a LOT of residence permits, and they do provide a service to find work for foreigners. So you might try them.
  21. The father can get a power of attorney in the country where he is. But he would also have to get an apostille, then send you the power of attorney and apostille. Then in Turkey, you would have to get both the power of attorney and the apostille translated into Turkish by a sworn Turkish translator. Once that is done, the power of attorney from the country where your husband is will be a legal power of attorney in Turkey. This article explains how to get an apostille, then how to have a document (in this case the power of attorney) and its apostille translated by a sworn translator.
  22. I own 2 x apartments on Mirage Residence complex in Side, Turkey ... one I live in ... the other one I rent to a Brain Surgeon/Doctor from the local Bilgi Hospital. He gets paid the same amount as a secretary would get in England and cannot afford to buy a property of his own. He would like to buy the one he is renting from me but that is £65,000 with the furniture included and he only has managed to save up £35,000 ... sad but true ... and his advice ... go to another country where you WILL get paid what you are worth!!!

  23. @Izmir Ted Thanks for the response! But yeah we were looking to be around that area and we want to be close to transportation but being walking distance to supermarkets and such but Narlidere sounds since they'll be extending the metro to there.
  24. If it's not in the address database, you should go back to the Directorate General of Migration Management (DGMM) without an appointment to let them know. They are supposed to enter your address info into the system during your residence permit appointment. They should be able to do it on the spot. It may just be that the immigration specialist forgot to enter your address information into the system. If they tell you to go to the Nüfus ve Vatandaşlık İşleri Genel Müdürlüğü (Nüfus), that is the Directorate of Population and Citizenship Affairs. You'll need to make an appointment online first. You can do that here: https://randevu.nvi.gov.tr/ In either or both cases, take your tapu (property title deed) or your rental contract with you. Also your residence permit and your passport in case you need it.
  25. Lars, I am assuming that you are talking about a full A4 sized document which has the title "Residence Permit Application Document" and has your photo on it. If that is what you have, you are correct. But you must also have the receipts proving payment of the residence permit fees when you return.
  26. I don't know exactly how the dates will work for you, but if you apply 60 days before your visa expires, there's a good chance you'll be able to attend your appointment before you have to leave, and have as much time as possible left on your visa. At the end of your appointment, they'll give you a Residence Permit Application Document, which serves as a temporary residence permit until you get your card. That keeps you legal in Turkey after your visa expires, and with that you can leave the country for up to 14 days and return, as long as you also have the receipts for the payment of the fees as well. However, if you're in Istanbul, they may just give you a letter which says you have applied, but it isn't a Residence Permit Application Document. Yes. If you still have time left on your visa, you can go and come as much as you want. That's what I was referring to about applying as early as possible, the more time you still have left on your visa the better, because you're covered by your visa if you have to travel before your appointment. To anticipate a question, I'm in Antalya, and when I applied for a residence permit extension recently, I was able to book an appointment in the following week. The only problem might be if you're in Istanbul, where they're a lot more busy, and you may not be able to book an appointment in such a short time. If your visa runs out before your appointment and you have to travel, it's a more complicated hassle than I want to get into here. You have to apply at the DGMM office where you are going to live. And, according to a conversation I recently had with the DGMM office in Antalya, you can't change your address until after you receive your residence permit card. The firms I know of don't get any preferential service. The DGMM is in no way connected to any of these private companies. Good catch, Redders... I met the owner of the company who runs that website earlier this year. Apparently they process a huge number of residence permits every month here in Antalya. I had also seen this on their price list and asked him about it. Apparently, what they're doing is charging a "flat price" for the service. It's not the actual prices which are charged by the government or the insurance company, it's what you pay them. My impression was that they did this to keep things simple, because the residence permit fee varies according to nationality and exchange rates, and the insurance cost varies according to age, and it is less confusing to just have one fixed number.
