  1. Thank you Ken and everyone for your comments. I only just saw this post today.
  2. That's good to know. Good luck and let us know if you get your parcels.
  3. You will have to ask at the PTT. In the past you could send things to any post office, anywhere, poste restante. The item would be held by the post office and you would have to go and pick it up. With this method they don't tell you when it arrives, you just have to guess and ask them. Poste restante is postrestant in Turkish. If you have enough Turkish you can go and ask them Postrestant var mi? and if they say yes ask, Postrestant adres beni yazabilir mi? (Can you write the poste restante address for me). However the most secure way is to give your home or work address.
  4. 22 April is not a holiday in Turkey so the PTT and Banks will be open. Please note that 23 April is a holiday. At the PTT you can send items like letters and envelopes by normal mail or boxes and larger things by cargo. How much it costs depends on the weight and dimensions of the item and who fast you want it delivered.
  5. Like Redders said, if you are a foreigner in Turkey and you want to use a phone, wherever it's from, you need to register your yabanci kimlik number with the service provider.
  6. You also have to register if you have a pay as you go SIM card. I successfully added my TC Kimlik number using the Digital Operator link provided by Turkcell.
  7. Any imam can conduct a religious wedding ceremony in Turkey but it is not a legal binding marriage contract and gives no legal rights to either party.
  8. Avcilar is about one and half hours from Zincirlikuyu (which is near lots of vibrant areas) and is a very Turkish district. Unless your mother is fluent in Turkish or already has a good social network in Istanbul she might feel isolated. Your budget for a 3 bedroom apartment is quite low unless you pick remote suburbs. The price difference could be down to the number of metres squared, the quality of the materials used, if the apartment is in a site which includes a gatehouse, parking, gym and pool and lots of other variables. If you do buy a new property make sure the iskan (habitation certificate) has already been issued, use you own lawyer (not one recommended by the real estate agent selling the house) and make sure to check the tapu (title deed) information against the seller's kimlik (ID card).
  9. Before you can ships things into Turkey you will need to have a residence permit. Then, you can bring in one shipment of personal belongings tax free, provided you do this no less than 2 months and no more than 6 months after your last entry into the country.
  10. I just completed this quiz. My Score was 93/100 and my time was 283 seconds

    Wrong calculation?

    Ibrahim this calculator is really helpful. http://gibba.co.uk/index1.php
  12. Thanks Chris, This is really helpful. Lisa
  13. Thanks Chris. Maybe we can catch up again when we head your way next year.
  14. Hi Everyone, We might be doing a jaunt through some Greek islands next year, around May. We want to get from Meis to Kas by ferry. Will there be any Turkish run boats we can get from Greece to Turkey? Price and weblink would be great. Thanks. Lisa
  15. I don't know the answer to your last question. At the moment it appears the Turkish government is responding to the influx of Syrians and other immigrants & refugees into Istanbul by applying stricter, more limited grounds under which you can get a residence permit in order to ensure everyone there is entitled to be there. I think you should ask the uni (?) where you'll be doing the internship about your particular situation. As they are in Turkey they can call 157, the number for the department that deals with residence & work permit questions. The problem as I see it is timing. Even if you meet the criteria for a residence permit, you mightn't get an appointment until after your planned date to leave the country, which will make your final month in Turkey (assuming you stay only 4 months), illegal.
