  1. Welcome EnglishGent,I too would like to welcome you to the forum and WOW WOW WOW you got a visa without an interview, hand on heart I think it was because your wife had lived , worked and studied in the UK before you got married and that helps a lot in making a decison. I am so pleased , well elated to read that your story had an extreamely happy ending and i wish you well for the future. I have read and listened about too many people refused , like Debbie my husband too was refused but a battle and hard slog through the courts finally got my husband back into the UK.
  2. Hi there,CONGRATULATIONS on your pending marriage. My wedding took around 90 seconds and it was all over !!! I asked if i needed a translator but was told all that was required of me was to say yes twice , once to confirm my name and once to confirm i wanted to marry. When I heard my name mentioned and the registrar stopped and looked at me i knew i had to say yes in Turkish. Again after a few words in Tukish and I heard my name and then my husbands name mentioned and the registrar stopped and looked at me i knew it was my cue to say yes again. It was all done and dusted in about a minute and half and im not kidding !!!! Now because ive only got married once in Tukey I dont know if ceremonies differ from region to region and maybe more may be required in your wedding but it might be worth finding out first before going to the expense of hiring a translator only to hear do you want to marry....... and does your intended want to marry you. poof and its all over LOL. Hope all goes well.
  3. Many thanks Sunny, I just couldn't see anything around that indicated further burials , albeit it was the background. Yes of course my condolences to his family , how shocking to hear he was only in his 50's.
  4. what wonderful news, as some of you know I am in to animal charities and support when I can. It is great news to hear the RSPCA have come to Turkey.
  5. Hi All,Please excuse my ignorance here , the photos appear to show the burial taking place in a woodland, can people be buried where they like or how does it work. This a subject I know nothing about except like already mentioned muslims get buried very quickly after death
  6. perhaps i didnt word my post very well,you have to be in Turkey 21 days if you apply for the CONI after you get to Turkey, just like in the UK you have to wait 21 (sorry i said 28 days before) BUT if you get your CONI in the UK before you fly out you can get married straight away without having to wait for the cert to be processed.sorry if i confused you
  7. Hi Karen, You only need to stay in Turkey 28 days IF you apply for the certificate of non impediment once you are over there, the same rule applies as it does in the UK, You apply at your registry office then have to wait 28 days whilst it is published to allow anyone to appeal against it. If you take it with you, ie apply in the uk you can get married as soon as the other paperwork that cannot be done in the UK has been completed, which can be done if you are on the ball in 48hrs !! , well i did LOLHope this helps
  8. This isn't a story but an observation that I have noticed with my husband, When we have been on long coach journeys together my husband will spark up conversations with just about anyone, usually the person sat opposite him in the aisle (unless a woman) and the steward. Now I can't get my head around this, he can talk for 6 hrs and when i asked him what he talked about he says everything. So i ask, is he married , he replies, dunno I didn't askWhat does he do for a job - dunno I didn't askHas he got any children - dunno i did't ask.mmmmmmmmWhere is he going - dunno I didn't askWhere does he live - dunno I didn't askNow how the hell can my husband have convesations lasting hours with these people and yet they don't actually discuss anything !!! :hysterical[1]:please don't tell me its just my husband lol there's got to be more out there like him
  9. Hi Sania,Lovely to have read your story, sounds like you are slowly but surely making your way around the country lol. I am so pleased to hear all went well.
  10. I am thrilled to read this post Cas , so sorry for not responding sooner but lost internet connection. See its not that diffucult when you know how lol !!!! Many happy years together and of course CONGRATULATIONS
  11. Hi Mike,When my husband and I visited Istanbul we too visited the Blue Mosque as it gave him great pleasure to pray in such an impressive place , i have dscussed the question you had about wanting to pray shia when the majoirty are sunni and he states shia and sunni are not too different and muslim is muslim and he can see no problems that you will come across. We too have scoured the net for hotels and there are just too many to choose from and it would be difficult to recommend but there are others on here who have pointed me in the right direction, if you trawl trough the istanbul posts on here you will find a couple of hotels that members have stayed at and rated as worth staying at. Money well it depends on what acocmodation you take, whether your hotel includes meals etc but i found that the city was comparitively cheap to travel and get into attractions but i am comparing them on uk prices which are expensive. I do hope you find satisfaction when you visit and i am sure you will thoroughly enjoy your visit there,I cant wait to go back

    me to i get very excited when i hear the name . Its very close to my heart too
  13. Hi Cas,I got married 2 yrs ago in Turkey and the blood tests are for HIV,HEP-B,chlamidia (sp) , syphiliss and one more that i cant put my finger on at the moment. Unless the law has changed within the last 2 yrs i cannot recollect getting an international licence to marry but that doesnt mean to say you dont need one, there are ways and means in Turkey and because i didnt have one doesn't mean to say someone else will ask for one. All i took the the resigtry office was the medical test results and my cert of non imp along with my passport that was it . My husband had to take his divorce papers and his ID card along with his blood tests.

    i was going to ask if anyone had any photos of dalyan to share with me and here i find eva had already posted some, very very stunning, i know i am totally convinced this is one place i will enjoy
  15. Hi Lillet,Lozenge and Debbie have given you some lovely advice , I have been trying to find some information but failed miserabley, The only thing i can add is to perhaps contact a specialist solicitior in the UK before going out to Turkey so you are armed with the correct information before you go to the aurtohrities over there and so you will have an insight of what you are expected to do and you are not hood winked into something that might not be necessary. If i can find any information i will contact you.
