    jade got a reaction from Ken Grubb in Banking   
    Over the past couple of weeks we experienced problems at the bank with foreigners trying to open a bank account despite having a tax card number.

    We went to Yapi Kredi and Ziraat Bank but were told a foreigner could only open a bank account once a contract for a flat was signed and the foreigner had a residence permit. We spoke to the directors of the 2 banks but couldn't get them to help us either!

    This was in Antalya.

    I've just written to you but I think I pressed the wrong key so am writing again.
    You want a 1-bedroom flat near the mountains or beach in Antalya as from May and I'm sure I can help you.
    I'm English and have a small real-estate business here in Antalya - in Kundu.
    I presume you are looking for a furnished flat?
    A furnished flat over in Konyaalti - the west side where the mountains are - start at APPROX 700TL - 800TL a month.
    If you want I can help you and when you come perhaps we could also drink a coffee together!
    Best wishes,
    Jade

    I can find you a flat but your relatives will NOT get work permits.
    If you are still interested in coming please contact me. Flats start around 500 TL a month - that's the cheapest rate available.

    I taught at several private schools in the past.
    First of all, it's not difficult to get a position as a teacher but you must have at least a TEFL/TESOL Certificate and proof of university diplomas in order to get a work permit here.
    Having said that it's also possible to teach at private language schools here but they won't get your work permit for you so that works out expensive for you to get and the pay is usually not very good - about 15 - 20TL an hour. At a lot of private language schools you can get hired without any teaching qualifications.
    If you work at a private school (Özel Koleji) some will offer accommodation, others won't.
    Salaries range here in Antalya from about 1.250TL - 1.750 TL - much less than in Istanbul.
    Finding a flat is easy as there are thousands and thousands of empty flats here in Antalya. If you want a flat, say, with 2 bedrooms in a nice area you are talking about 600 TL minimum.
    Hope this helps you.

    jade got a reaction from Goreme1990 in Turkish State Health Insurance (SGK)   
    For newcomers to Turkey I thought the following article might be of interest to you.
    State health insurance application made simple
    After many expats were put off joining the SGK (Sosyal Güvenlik Kurumu) – Turkey’s state health insurance – last year because of teething problems and a complicated application process, now things have improved and a much more streamlined sign-up system is in place.
    A brave couple who were keen to get to the bottom of the situation armed themselves with a Turkish friend as a translator and headed to the newly opened SGK office in Didim. And here’s what they discovered:
    If you are married, you need to take:
    • Your marriage certificate;
    • Your Turkish kimlik number (which the couple obtained by taking their residence permits to the local police station);
    • Proof of your address (this needs to be obtained from your local Nufus Müdürlüğü office)
    • Your residence permit
    • Your passport
    On returning to the SGK office, you will have to fill in a simple form that apparently takes less than a minute. The SGK staff will confirm by phone within a couple of hours that the application process is complete – BUT they do not take payments for the SGK at the office.
    How do you make the payment?
    In order to make your payment, you will need to pop along to the Ziraat Bank where you can then make the payment using their ATM machine.
    How much does it cost?
    The couple said they were charged 261TL (this includes the first month of SGK payment and application fee), but after this they will simply return to the Ziraat Bank’s ATM every month and pay the amount demanded. The average price for a married couple on SGK is around 230TL (approx. £72) per month.
    The couple said: “The whole process and paying into Ziraat was pretty smooth and we are glad to have done it. But we do advise people thinking of getting into SGK to take a Turkish translator or friend to the SGK office as none of the staff can speak English.”
    It now means that the couple can avail themselves of all the medical and health services that Turkish people enjoy. By paying monthly, they are entitled to free treatment in state hospitals and will be able to get treatment in some private hospitals at a reduced cost.
    Those foreign residents with a residence permit, and have been resident in Turkey for at least one year, can apply. A single monthly premium will cover a married couple and their children.
    However, there is no discount for single people, and those couples who are not married and simply live together have to pay separate single premiums.

    In 2007 I was stuck in a rut in a nicely paid but stressful job working for a huge American company in France. On the outside things looked good - good pay, stock options, company car, etc. On the inside I was bored, stressed and fed up with EBITA, ROI and quarterly earning reports - money is not everything. To cut a long story short I threw in the job, we sold the house, sold off all of our belongings which wouldn't fit in the car, stuffed everythng into my partner's old Xantia, the dog on top and we set off for a new life in Turkey! My parents were appalled and bewildered when I announced that we had bought an old cave house in Cappadocia and were moving to open a guesthouse (I think they still haven't come to terms with it yet and I do admit it was a wild move but sometimes you have to throw caution to the winds and take risks. And sometimes you get burnt as we found out! But heck, life is short).
    More in the next thrilling episode (if it interests anybody).

    jade got a reaction from Sunny in Requesting Advice and Opinions About Teaching English in Turkey   
    hi there,

    I did the same as you did Dale many years ago and I used to be able to get the Turkish work permit even though I also don't have a university degree. I taught at many private schools in Turkey. However, now the authorities are a lot stricter than they used to be and to teach at a private school you usually need to have a uni degree. I say USUALLY because, although some private schools will take you on without a university degree, they can only hire you as a teaching assistant and it seems that some schools can get you the work permit employing you as a teaching assistant and others can't!!!!!

    Language schools will hire you readily but most of them won't get the work permit for you/can't get the work permit for you without you having a uni degree and, as Sunny said, you then work illegally here in Turkey. And the police DO DEPORT citizens who are working illegally here - I know of 2 Americans who were deported within 48 hours.

    It is a risk working without a work permit - but I know quite a few teachers in the same position as us who do it! And they've been here for years. I also think the open university would be a good alternative for you once you're here.

    Hope this has been of help,
    Jade

    jade reacted to Sunny in Uk Consul - Important Changes To Consular Registration   
    Important changes to consular registration
     
    The LOCATE online consular registration system will be closed down on 14 May. The Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) is committed to providing British nationals with a modern and efficient consular service and this decision is part of a programme of work to transform our crisis response.
     
    Until now the FCO has been encouraging British nationals to register their details with the FCO ‘just in case’ of an emergency. In February 2013 there were approximately 43,000 Locate registrants, representing 1% of British Nationals resident overseas and a fraction of British travellers. Despite technical upgrades and marketing efforts, the level of registration remains extremely low. As people do not sign up in large numbers LOCATE does not provide an accurate picture of numbers of British nationals in crisis-affected countries and is an ineffective crisis response tool. Following the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in 2011, the FCO contacted all 3000 LOCATE registrants in the country. None required our assistance. Here in Turkey only 365 have registered out of an estimated 40.000 of British nationals in Turkey. Travellers and residents in Turkey will no longer be able to pre-register on a ‘just in case’ basis. I would like to reassure you that British nationals will continue to receive the same level of consular support while in Turkey and will still be able to log their details with the FCO if they are affected by a crisis and need help. Depending on the nature of a crisis, we may open a telephone hotline and a new +44 SMS service.
     
    For the latest travel and security news British nationals should:
     
    Read our travel advice for Turkey and subscribe to receive updates via email. We will communicate all travel and security information via our travel advice, so this is the best way for British nationals to stay informed.
     
    foreign-travel-advice/turkey
    -        
    Follow FCO travel news on twitter (@ukinturkey and facebook  www.facebook.com/ukinturkey)
     
    As we are prone to natural disasters(like earthquakes) here in Turkey British nationals are also encouraged to read some new FCO guidance on precautions to take if they are travelling to or resident in areas where a crisis may occur:
     
    https://www.gov.uk/how-to-deal-with-a-crisis-overseas
     
    We appreciate that technology may fail in some crises and in these cases we can revert to pushing out information via more traditional means, for example warden networks, local radio stations, using posters on community notice boards.

    I can definitely tell you that the salary for teachers in Turkey is not a high one.
    Consider the fact that children get a lot of homework. And if your children are going to do online schooling as well, they are really going to be tied up with very little free time. So that's something you have to think about as well.

    FISH
    Following are the list of fish still available and the season when they are the most delicious.

    Barbunya (red mullet), from April to July

    Çinekop (young of blue fish) after October

    Çipura (gilt-head bream), all throughout the year. The most famous Aegean Sea fish. However recently it has been raised at sea farms, therefore you can meet both sea and culture Çipura. Obviously, sea Çipura is the most delicious.

    Dil Bali&gi (sole) all throughout the year. Fried is recommended.

    Fener bali&gi (angler fish) all throughout the year.

    Gelincik bali&gi (rockling fish) from May to August. Also known as gaya fish among the Jewish community. With the belief that being the first fish eaten after starving at Sinai desert it is considered sacred. It is a tradition of Jews to cook this fish on Fridays.

    Gümüs bali&gi (sand smelt) February, March

    Hamsi (anchovy), from December to February. Although small, one of the most famous Black Sea fish. Delicious with various cooking styles such as frying, steaming etc.

    iskorpit (scorpion fish), from May to July. Since it has poisonous thorns absolutely let the fisherman clean off.

    istavrit (horse mackerel), all throughout the year. It is very enjoyable to catch this fish during spring and summer on the pavements of Bosphorus coasts.

    izmarit (blotched picarel), from February to April. Again it is very enjoyable to catch this fish during spring and summer on the pavements of Bosphorus coasts

    Kalkan (turbot), from February to April. A Black Sea fish. The ones weighing 4-5 kg. are eligible. For it has thick spine and fishbone always let fisherman clean off.

    Karagöz (sea bream), all throughout the year. One of the most delicious fish of Turkish seas.

    Kaya bali&gi (goby), all throughout the year.

    Kefal (gray mullet) from January to March.

    Kiliç bali&gi (sword fish), from August to April. One of the most delicious fish, but unfortunately it is almost impossible to find nowadays. Most fish served as Kiliç in the restaurants are shark or other white fish.

    Kirlangiç (red gurnard), from April to September. One of the most precious fish soups of which is more than delicious.

    Kofana (large bluefish), from September to January

    Kolyoz (chub mackerel), from July to September

    Levrek (sea bass), all throughout the year. This rare fish has recently been raised at sea farms; therefore you can meet both sea and culture sea bass. Of course sea levrek is more delicious.

    Lüfer (bluefish), from September to January. The king of the Turkish seas.

    Mercan (red sea bream), all throughout the year

    Mezgit (whiting), all throughout the year. Can be seen on the stands of fish sellers almost every day.

    Orfoz (grouper), all throughout the year

    Orkinos (tuna fish), a kind of fish that cannot be seen on the stands of fishermen. They are used for canning purpose only

    Palamut (bonito), from August to January. A black sea fish. Richer than other fish with vitamin A and D.

    Sardalya (sardine), from July to October

    Tekir (striped goat fish), from February to July

    Torik (large bonito), from September to November

    Uskumru (mackerel), from November to January. Once the most popular fish of Marmara! However now you can only find the imported Norwegian mackerel. Most of the fishermen try to convince you that chub mackerel they sell is mackerel. Don’t believe.

    Zargana (garfish, garpike), March and April

    GENERAL INFO
    Döner; An old Turkish favorite. Compressed lamb and beef combination slowly spinning as it grilled on a vertical rotisserie by open flame. As it turns, the cone of meet is roasted by the flaved and then slowly carved down in very thin slices with a very long knife. Next the meat is served on pide with your choice of tasty tomato sauce, onions and lettuce, yo&gurt and by pilav.

    Gözleme: A simple food however is very opten listed among the specialties in small eating spots. A very thin wrapped sheet of dough, similar to crepes baked on a curved sheet of metal and then filled with cheese and lettuce, potato, spinach, sausages. Also you can choose whether you want it with hot spices or not. It is served freshly made and can be covered with butter while warm. During weekends especially on Sundays, you can see old ladies opening the dough in the streets of Ortaköy and some other tourist areas.

    Lahmacun: For sure you will see lahmacun somewhere. It is a delicious Turkish pizza, on a thin layer of pastry mince meat is spread - with tomato, onion, salt and parsley - spiced with red pepper from mild to hot. Suggest you rolling and then eat, other way you cannot even hold it straight. There is also findik (hazelnut) lahmacun which is much smaller than the original size and is usually served at the meat restaurants before the main dish.

    Simit: A ring-shaped bread covered by sesame seeds is on the top rank among the simple pleasures in Turkish food. Simit can be found everywhere in Turkey being sold on the streets, sometimes displayed in small covered carts, sometimes on small stands, sometimes simply carried by a walking vendor, piled on his head. The simit, in spite of the slight variations in presentation, was always very light and rich in flavor, so much that usually you took it plain, as if it were a pastry. It makes an excellent resource for calming down the stomach in the middle of a hike, for example. Açma and çatal, usually displayed with simit, too worth the bite and the money.

    Kokoreç: One of the favorite Turkish fast food made from sheep intestine. They put the meat with tomato, onion, and parsley into quarter or half bread. It is delicious! You can eat the best kokoreç in Kadiköy, Ortaköy and Balik Pazari.

    Kumpir: Simply made from potatoes. Basically the potato is baked and cut then cheese and salt put into it and mixed. Later various kinds of food such as Russian salad, green and black olive, pickle, pea, mushroom, sausages, corn etc can be added according to your choice. Try once this delicious food, you won’t regret.
