  1. Maybe letter writing will catch on
  2. I suspect this depends on the region. Some offices will be busier than others. Which one are you referring to GS?
  3. That would be good for many but would probably still put off those who are looking for citizenship for the wrong reasons.
  4. Hi Dave, Welcome to the forum. Have you asked the firm that you work for if they will get a residency for your wife? Some companies will do that. Can't advise on when to apply. You will need Marriage cert, it will need translating into Turkish and noterising. I believe that your wife will have health insurance as your dependent if your company is paying your Turkish social security (SGK). Also bring back evidence of educational certificates in case you wish to take up a Turkish driving licence.
  5. I believe that a call needs to be made from a network outside of Turkey using that phone within the 120 day period.
  6. The Turkish was fine, much less accented than Wilco Van Herpen on Iz TV (who I enjoy)
  7. I thought that there was only one postal service here, the PTT. Courier companies will charge much more and the service will not be better. All the packages that we have sent through PTT arrived as planned. You can now track them online too.
  8. When I bought my second hand car I was pleased to have to have MA plates, I didn't fancy driving around with ** ARS ** on the plate
  9. Congratulations Pete. When you apply for a Turkish licence they will take your UK licence. Some people are not happy about that and get their UK licence translated and notarised. You can drive on this if you have a turkish RP, but need to leave the country and re-enter every 6 months. iyi Yolculuklar.
  10. The two different names are no problem as long as you have a marriage certificate in those same names. We have different names and have had RPs for 16 years. I really would not go to the trouble of changing names afterwards. too many certificates, licences and things in your old names
  11. Sorry, I don't know of one
  12. Hi, welcome to the Forum. Most of the people who use this Forum are actually foreigners living in Turkey, so any replies that you get may not be too representative.
  13. I think it is due to be paid twice a year, January and July, so it will depend on when you purchased and when it was last paid by the previous owner. I would wander along and ask what is due. Good luck
  14. You should go to the municipal office in the area that you live in (Belediye). You will need your title deeds (Tapu). You need to pay the building tax (bina vergisi) and the environment tax (Çevre vergisi). This may have changed a little recently as we have been given a tax break for 5 years, so have not paid it recently. Earthquake insurance (DASK) can be paid at any insurance company office. I hope that this helps Fada.
