  1. Hello Pete, This mainly because of the total number of test applied is less than UK I guess. I am afraid this number go high next week.
  2. In this case Vodafone seems a better option for you. I recommended TTNet because providing wide-range of service and fiber connection where Turkcell failed to do. As far as I know all providers requesting 2 year commitment but let me check maybe Turkcell has something useful. There will be cancellation fee if you wish to cancel the internet before date of end of contract.
  3. Correct, rental contract should signed at notary. All rent payments needs to be done through bank transfer and it's common to pay first month rent in advance. I think you can get internet service with your rental contract. It depends on your budget and internet usage but my recommendation would be TTnet.
  4. Probably you are right abi. I was talking about Istanbul, recently I made applications behalf of someone and all of them got appointments 2 and 3 months later. Especially European side it's impossible to have an appointments.
  5. Recently, immigration office is giving date of appointment 2 or 3 moths later for renewal and first time residence permit applications.
  6. Redders is right, if officer demands the birth certificate it should be translated and notary approved.
  7. Hello, It surely a matter of budget, my opinion is Besiktas, Kadıköy and Sarıyer is safer but rather expensive areas.
  8. Hello Neil, I do not think it is acceptable that giving hotel address because in online system you are giving address information and system will automatically fill the rest of the form.
  9. Hello Ted, Test can be held as English. I know this because I'm hearing that Syrians are getting Arabic version of this test.
  10. Unfortunately Ken, who wants to get a new Turkish Driving Licence must register to one of driving course but attendance not necessarily if agreed with the course. Driving test will be held at the same course center where registered.
  11. U. S.licence owners needs to go to driving course and obtain a Turkish driving licence. Simply, after registering there will be a paper-based exam, second driving test with instructors. If passed on two tests you will entitle to get a Turkish driving licence. Req Docs 1. Passport 2. Residence Permit 3. Biometric photograph 4. Degree ( Translated and notary ratified) 5. Health report 6. Criminal record certificate Fees will be around 900 TL in total as I remember correctly.
  12. Hello, I hope this will help you out. Semt: N/A (According to information above) Mahalle: Kumbahçe Cadde/Sokak: 2407 Posta Kodu: 48400 İl: Muğla İlçe: Bodrum
  13. Justin, As far as I know, the first message still applies to all foreigners. I'm working at a company whom my colleagues are foreign citizens are having the same problem and they are enrolling driving courses at least a paper that proves you're going to a course in case of police stop.
  14. There is a rafting area near İstanbul which is Melen run in Düzce. We are planning to go next week since it's our first time I'm wondering about the things we should consider before going there. I made some research about it but I'd like to listen from someone who done it before. Photos will be added after trip. Thank you
  15. If I am correct this certificate is "adli sicil kaydı" which is available on E-Devlet. If you don't have E-Devlet, probably Foreigners Branch may provide this.
  16. The main reasons are political unstability( prolong state of emergency), increasing in terrorism and the low rate of production. These causes the uncertainty and market take consideration while pricing the TL. A solution might be balancing our debts, incerasing our export volume and crack down on our public expenditures and making reforms on education but these are for a long-term solutions. I believe it is impossible to predict the fate of TL against U. S Dollar or Euro due to uncertainty.
  17. I've just join the club just for being supportive, I hope it's okay.

    Moving to Adana

    We had a business with this real estate agency and personally I can freely recommend it. http://www.eseremlak.com.tr/
  19. What a tragic story, since you are in England I believe the threats he made are just empty words I would say otherwise if you are in Turkey. Anyway, the only solution that I can think of this, go to the page that I have posted below it is a general directorate of securtiy, they have an office in London, or you can use their e-mail address to explain your situation, provide all required information about him (i.d, phone number, his address in Turkey etc.) and show them all e-mails filled with threats even if they were in Turkish they will understand how important it is. I hope you find a swift answer regarding to your problem.
  20. Especially with the blackcurrent is delicious. My personal favorite is "kaburga dolması".
  21. Hello welcome to forum, First of all congratulations for your effort to come here and become a useful member for the community, Since you have a dual citizenship which makes you a valuable and reasonable candidate for teaching positions. Beside that, with TESL certificate you can only work in private colleges and language institutions, If you want to work in government institutions you have to take KPSS ( http://www.osym.gov.tr/belge/1-24884/2016-kpss-kamu-personel-secme-sinavi.html) It's not an easy exam and the process of appointment takes time) Wages for teaching positions can differ but generally between 2,000 - 3,000 TL for starters, There are other variables like, staying, food, transportation, clothing and extra costs. I hope your dreams come true.
  22. Welcome to forum, since your inquires are not basis on academic level the institutions below are providing courses. Asmek Halk Eğitim
  23. I feel you have some hesitations maybe you are right to feel that way. That amount is nearly 3,000 TL after exchanged, Will you going to pay a rent ? If so, after deduction rent, that amount of money is proper for a month. There are of course other expenses, like transportation, food, cloth, bills etc. The possible option will be a Western Union, If you have a close friend or a relative in back home they would send you money until you open an account in here. You can use this service even If you are not a banks customer. http://www.isbank.com.tr/TR/bireysel/diger-hizmetler/western-union/Sayfalar/western-union.aspx I believe other experienced users will give useful advices.
  24. I think you don't need a second degree, you can make your degree recognize in here ( You have to pay a little). I believe you have a great chance, I mean you earn your degree one of U. S institutions and your native language is english. All you need is a work permit. In Istanbul there are a wide range of jobs I can't say specifically what type of jobs you should consider, you can find whatever suits you best. You can use these web sites to assess what kind of sector leading in Istanbul. http://www.kariyer.net/is-ilanlari/#&ct=c34,c82 http://www.yenibiris.com/istanbul-is-ilanlari
  25. I always thought you will be at Yasar University, but Congratulations anyway. Ak Parti ( current govern) and Gulenist movement are in a fight against each other lasted 2 or 3 years. At Friday night, there was a coup attempt from minority group in military ( most of them were gulenist). Coup was failed because it was not in chain of command. The rest of the TSK (Turkish Armed Forces) intervened and stopped this madness. State of Emergency vote has just passed from the senate and will be effective July, 21 for 90 days. ( But this is renewable). I am worried a little about the human rights but we will see how government can handle this. I don't know If you have been here before, but you shouldn't expect the exact same standards compared to Canada.
