    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.

    greenstein reacted to PeteJF in Coronavirus   
    COVID-19 update for March 22
    Total identified cases 1236 and total deaths 30
    Turkey seems to currently be coping better than the UK which has a total of 5,683 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 281 deaths.

    I suspect this depends on the region. Some offices will be busier than others. Which one are you referring to GS?

    greenstein reacted to Eglegal in Married UK woman due to divorce   
    Hi Libby, 
    There are 2 legal ways which you can follow under your circumstances; first one is you both file a consensual divorce case before the UK court and finalize it there. Once you get the official divorce decree over there in UK, your husband can have the divorce recognised here in Turkey with another follow-up case what we call "Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Court Judgments in Turkey". As you are in cooperation with your husband in terms of finalizing the procedures, your husband can hire solicitor here who can help you out and conclude the things quickly.   
    2nd way would be the one which your husband files a divorce case here in Turkey and you both (or only your husband) hire solicitor to be represented before the family court. According to family law practice here, if your husband files a consensual (uncontested) divorce case, you both need to be present in the hearing at least once (solicitors representation not enough). If you can't show up, then the case automatically turns into a contested divorce case which both sides are in need to bring verbal witnesses to prove that things didnt work out between you and your husband. Qualification of witnesses are also important and needs to be evaluated carefully before proceeding with this 2nd way.
    Regards,

    greenstein reacted to Ken Grubb in Moving to Turkey for Work   
    You would need to find an employer in Turkey before anything else. Then after you get hired, your employer would start the process for your work permit. At the same time, you would work with the Turkish embassy or consulate to get a work visa to enter Turkey. Once your work permit and visa is approved, you can enter Turkey with the work permit, go to your job site, get your work permit and start working.
    Here's an article about finding a job on Turkey. At the bottom are links to employment websites.

    greenstein reacted to Mr. Milton in Travel Advisory: Turkey - Level 2: Exercise Increased Caution   
    Exercise increased caution when traveling to Turkey due to terrorism and arbitrary detentions. Some areas have increased risk. Read the entire Travel Advisory.

    Do not travel to: Areas near the Syrian and Iraqi borders due to terrorism. (Level 4) Reconsider travel to:
    Batman, Bingol, Bitlis, Diyarbakir, Gaziantep, Hakkari, Hatay, Kilis, Mardin, Sanliurfa, Siirt, Sirnak, Tunceli, and Van (Level 3) Terrorist groups continue plotting possible attacks in Turkey. Terrorists may attack with little or no warning, targeting tourist locations, transportation hubs, markets/shopping malls, local government facilities, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, parks, major sporting and cultural events, educational institutions, airports, and other public areas. Terrorists have also previously targeted Western tourists and expatriates.

    Security forces have detained tens of thousands of individuals, including U.
    S. citizens, for alleged affiliations with terrorist organizations based on scant or secret evidence and grounds that appear to be politically motivated. U.
    S. citizens have also been subject to travel bans that prevent them from departing Turkey. Participation in demonstrations not explicitly approved by the Government of Turkey, as well as criticism of the government, including on social media, can result in arrest.

    Read the Safety and Security section on the country information page.

    If you decide to travel to Turkey:
    Stay alert in locations frequented by Westerners. Avoid demonstrations and crowds. Stay at hotels with identifiable security measures. Monitor local media and adjust your plans based on new information. Visit our website for Travel to High-Risk Areas. Enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive Alerts and make it easier to locate you in an emergency. Follow the Department of State on Facebook and Twitter. Review the Crime and Safety Report for Turkey. U. S. citizens who travel abroad should always have a contingency plan for emergency situations. Review the Traveler's Checklist.
    Areas near the Syrian and Iraqi Borders - Level 4: Do Not Travel

    Do not travel near the Turkey/Syria and Turkey/Iraq borders due to the continued threat of attacks by terrorist groups, armed conflict, and civil unrest.
    Terrorist attacks, including suicide bombings, ambushes, car bomb detonations, and improvised explosive devices, as well as shootings, and illegal roadblocks leading to violence have occurred in these areas.

    Specific Areas in Eastern and Southeastern Turkey - Level 3: Reconsider Travel

    Reconsider travel to specific areas in eastern and southeastern Turkey where the U.
    S. government has very limited ability to provide emergency services to U.
    S. citizens. These areas are the provinces of Batman, Bingol, Bitlis, Diyarbakir, Gaziantep, Hakkari, Hatay, Kilis, Mardin, Sanliurfa, Siirt, Sirnak, Tunceli, and Van, as the U.
    S. government restricts its employees from traveling to these provinces without prior approval.

    Visit our website for Travel to High-Risk Areas.

    Last Update: Reissued after periodic review with updates to a risk indicator and the Travel Advisory Level.

    Nour, birth certificates are not required providing they are with their parents or legal guardians.
    BUT the immigration officer is at liberty to ask for any extra documentation if he feels it's necessary.

    greenstein reacted to Ken Grubb in Increase in Anti-Americanism in Turkey?   
    Firstly, I'm an American who has lived in Turkey for around 20 years.
    Yes, it is true that the Turkish government has rounded up thousands of people. That's because an organization, whose leader is living in Pennsylvania, tried to overthrow the government. And it involved thousands of people. This organization killed a lot of people trying to overthrow a democratically-elected government. So personally, I can't blame the Turkish government too much for their reaction. What would the US government do in the wake of an attempted coup, where the military was also involved, in which military jets were used to attack government buildings in Washington, DC? Probably much the same thing the Turks have done. I just bring that up to put things in a little better perspective.
    In all of this, yes, there were a few US citizens involved. That's inevitable. It doesn't mean they are persecuting US citizens. They are not.
    I can say this with a high degree of confidence. Turks don't look at Americans and judge them because of their nationality. They may have big problems with the US government, but they don't judge the individual for it. And what is an "American" anyway? Our population is so diverse in culture, religion, national origin, and personality that it would be silly to put us all in a box and label it. The Turks know this. In a lot of cases, when I tell a Turk that I'm an American, they are rather delighted. They want to talk to me. They often tell me about a relative or friend of theirs who lives in the USA, or they have been to the USA. And the conversation is quite positive.
    Right now there are some tensions between the US government and the Turkish government. There's always going to be something. It is seldom that two countries have zero issues of contention with each other.
    I don't hide the fact that I am a US citizen, and I never have. I am surprised at how alike we are as people and as a culture. If they have problems with the USA, it's with the government. Heck, lots of US citizens have a problem with the US government. So personally, I really don't think you need to worry about anti-Americanism. It isn't focused on US citizens. It's about the US government, and I think it will have zero effect on you.
    If I may ask, what brought about the possibility of your moving to Turkey?

    The university is out of downtown, there is a dorm on the way to university but whose stay there needs to use bus. Most of students from out of town hires flats in "Baraj Yolu", I also recommend there, it's in the center, you can find easily what you need and also replete with students, I guess it takes 30 minutes  to the university at most by bus.

    You can find a rental place in the section of Adana I mentined, on Sahibinden.com's page for rental places. And you can also sort them by price.
