  5. Gardening

    I have a small garden and started planting a few berries and fruit trees that I love however, I can not find any blueberries. I am a Canadian and there are a few fruits that I miss ( blueberries being one, cranberries another ) The blueberries that are labeled as such are not the ones I recognize. I live in Izmir and have a summer house/garden in Ayvalik. Any suggestions ?
  6. Health Care Advice Please...

    I am interested in this topic . I have a residency permit for another two years. I don't have Health Insurance coverage as at the time when I got my permit it wasn't required. Can anybody advise me what Health Insurance provider to sign up with ? I will need it on residency permit renewal. Abbreviations don't mean much. I assume most of the expats sign up with the State Insurance ( SGK ? )
  7. Some of these apps may have been mentioned in the forum. For all learners of Turkish there are websites and apps ( some free and some for a minimal cost ) with written, audio and video materials both for academic and social language. Apps that I have downloaded for iPad ( and where there was a version iPhone as well ) - Turkish in a month - Sesli Sozluk ( dictionary ) -Babbel - Busuu - Essentials - Quizlet - Flashcards A website pgeorgalas@sch.gr ( here the instructions could be in English, Greek or Turkish) My favorite is Essentials , then comes Turkish in a Month.
  8. I got my residency permit in 2013, middle of March. I still believe there is no consistency ; rules are different according to nationality based on reciprocal agreements between Turkey and the respective country. They gave me 4 years , will take them !My new hoop I have to go through is Turkish driving license then will be Health insurance.At the moment I am still working in Iraq, come to Turkey only periodically but come next year I need to research and find a company that provides health insurance. Any suggestions?
  9. Thank you for all replies.will let you know how it went.
  10. O.K. Got it ! My next question now is does anybody know an agency in Izmir to help me with obtaining a Turkish Driving Licence ? I found one " 9ekim.com " - any insights ?
  11. Thanks Ibrahim.I will take this question further , maybe write to the Canadian Ambasy in Ankara , will think of something. Full taxes paid should come with the same privileges as afforded to Turkish citizens.I still believe this is a mistake : foreigners go through the hoops for legal documents and when they get them don't questıon anything.Thıs was defınıtely for the Blue plates but then was extended haphazardly to all foreign own cars. The Traffic Department could not show me the "rule, or regulation with this restriction " but they do it rutinely.The problem arises if somebody else drives the car and is involved in an accident , probably the insurance will not pay.
  12. There is something missing , a gap in the law . The restrictions were originally there for the "blue plates" for which people did not pay taxes. I paid the same taxes as any Turkish citizen - why the restrictions then?
  13. Hi, there must be different for certain passport bearers as I am Canadian and I bought a house before obtaining a residency permit and did not have to go back to Canada to apply.The residency was granted for the remaining validity of my passport ( four years ) after witch I was told would be renewed for the 10 year period . There was never a mention of one year residency.
  14. Cukurbagli, thanks for the reply.Do all foreigners have "M" plates? Can I change the plate? Can I on the insurance papers " designate a driver" ?
