Noters, Official Translators, and How to Find Them


Ken Grubb
  • About the noter (notary), in Turkey and how to find one near you.

A notary, or noter, stamp.The Noter

A noter, or notary, is often needed whenever you are doing a business transaction or applying for a residence permit in Turkey. For the latter, they are required to notarize your rental contract so you can prove you have a residence. You can find a noter rather easily, since they all have a uniform, white on red sign saying "Noter," with a number in front of it to differentiate them from the other noters in the city.

If you can't find one that way, the Türkiye Noterler Birliği (Turkey Notaries Union) has an official website where you can search for one. Click on Noter Bul (find a notary). That will take you to a page where you can enter the information needed to find one near you.

The option you actually need is İl (province). It is a drop-down list of all provinces in Turkey. Select your province from that and click Araman Başla (start search) to get a detailed list of all noters in your province, by city and number. It will also have the noter's name, address, and telephone number. 

Official Translators

If you need a document translated into Turkish, ask the noter. Translation offices with Turkish government certified translators are often located near the noter. If one isn't, the noter will tell you where there office is.
