  1. My wife and I have been indecisive about where to live in Turkey so we would like to get residence permits using a hotel address. Is there a possibility that the hotel would refuse to write a letter stating that we live there? Is there a minimum term we have to stay at the hotel? Can we use the hotel address to do other things like opening a bank account or getting a mobile phone contract? Regards.
  2. I really appreciate all this advice. Would all the documents I bring from Japan require an apostille? Can I change my Japanese driving licence to a Turkish one if I have a Turkish translation? Would I also be wise to bring a translation of a bank statement?
  3. Sorry about all these extra thoughts. If my wife is over 65, what happens with health insurance. If she goes to the hospital will she have to pay the full private fees. Regards.
  4. I just had a thought. If my bank statement is in Japanese will I need to translate it to Turkish or English or just show the regular payment in the bank statement.
  5. Thank you very much for the detailed procedure. I will let you know how things go. Regards, Neil.
  6. I live in Japan. I want to retire to Turkey with my Japanese wife. I have already been to Izmir to look around. I've decided Balcova would be the best place to live. It is near a great piano shop, the Symphony hall and, most importantly, a hot spring. In addition to my wedding certificate do I also need a criminal certificate for me and my wife with an apostille. Do my wife and I apply separately? My wife is very lucky because she doesn't need a visa. To start the procedure do I have to rent an apartment first, then get a medical insurance certificate, get a tax number, mobile phone and open a
  7. Narlidere sounds good because it is near Balcova. The maximum rent I would like to pay is 2,000 TL if possible. Regards, Neil.
  8. I love hot springs after living in Japan. I like Balcova and the historical area of Konak very much but the apartments are quite expensive. I would like an apartment of at least 80 square metres. I have been looking in Yesilyurt where apartments are more reasonable. Where is Kalabak? What are the prices for apartments. I forgot to say that I would prefer to rent, at least for the first year or two. Regards.
  9. I am still looking for an apartment. I have been told that an apartment with sound insulation would be fine. I have decided to move to Izmir but have not found a suitable apartment yet.
  10. Is it allowed to put a piano in a rental apartment? I am a professional pianist and would like to move to Izmir. I usually practice a couple of hours a day between 10:00 and 19:00. Maybe I would like to have a few private students as well. Will I have to soundproof a room? Regards, Neil.
