  1. A health report is required to get married, get a driving license, or get a premium private health insurance policy which is more comprehensive than those normally purchased by foreigners for their residence permit. What is a Turkish Health Report? A health report, in Turkish called a sağlık kurulu raporu or heyet raporu, is a comprehensive report on your health by doctors specializing in internal medicine, eye, ear, nose and throat, neurology, mental health, and orthopedics. The types of doctors involved depend on the reason for the health report. You can obtain a health report at any state or university hospital, or a private hospital if it's approved to issue them. For foreigners living in Turkey, a health report is required in order to get a driving license. In some cases it's a good idea to get a health report even when it isn't required. For example, insurance companies, as well as Turkey's Genel Sağlık Sigortası (General Health Insurance) program, won't pay out if they believe your condition is a pre-existing one. If you have a health report done when you join the plan, it may help you to prove a problem didn't exist at the time you joined. Where and How to Get a Health Report State hospitals are responsible for issuing health reports. Private hospitals may also issue them provided they're approved to do so by the ministry of health. Making an Appointment You can make an appointment at any hospital in Turkey by using the Merkezi Hekim Randevu Sistemi (Central Doctor Appointment System, or MHRS). Their website is here: https://www.mhrs.gov.tr/ If you're a member of e-Devlet, Turkey's government services portal, you can make an appointment by going directly to this page and signing in: https://www.turkiye.gov.tr/saglik-bakanligi-merkezi-hekim-randevu-sistemi Or you can call Turkey's national hospital appointment center at 182, from any telephone in Turkey. The call is free, and there's an option for English. State hospitals usually have certain days of the week when they do the examinations and issue health reports. Learn how to join and use e-Devlet. Getting a Health Report Without an Appointment You may be able to walk into a hospital and have the health report done. The hospital may fit you in between other appointments since the required examinations don't take much time. Required Documents You'll need these documents: Residence Permit Copy of your residence permit The document directing you to get the health report (if you have one) Four biometric photos Your glasses (if you wear them) You'll fill out a form requesting the health report at the reception desk, then pay a fee. Then the receptionist will tell you which clinic to go to for the first examination. Health Report Fee The fee will vary between hospitals but expect to pay around ₺200 to ₺300. The Health Report Process After a wait at the first and subsequent clinics, they'll do their examination or test, sign the document, and send you to the next clinic. Finally, you'll meet a doctor who'll interview you and sign off on the entire process. When I did this, I went without an appointment, and the whole process took around two hours (including waiting time). The examinations will likely include the following: Blood test Hearing test Vision test Examination and interview by a doctor Other tests if required The Health Report Document The doctor at the last clinic will send you back to the receptionist. The receptionist will create your health report, and attach your photo to it. After that, you can add it to your application package.

  2. The first place Turks go for minor illnesses is an eczane (eg-zah-neh), which is a Turkish a pharmacy or chemist's. They are identified by a red "E" emblazoned on a square white background. You'll find at least one eczane in practically every town in Turkey, and a large number of them in larger cities. When to Use an Eczane If you're suffering from some minor ailment, the pharmacist there is trained to listen to a description of your symptoms and dispense medicine. Many of these medicines might require a doctor's prescription in your country, but are dispensed by an eczacı (ej-zah-juh), or pharmacist, in Turkey. If your symptoms indicate that you need to see a doctor, or that you need a medicine which can only be prescribed by a doctor, the eczacı can recommend one. What You Can Get at an Eczane Besides medicine and drugs, you can also buy such things as Crutches Bandages Orthopedic devices Throat lozenges Aspirin Athlete's foot creme Antiseptic cremes and sprays Mosquito repellent Condoms While many of these types of items would be sold in a large grocery store in your home country, you have to go to an eczane to get some of them in Turkey. Prices are cheap though, since drug and medicine prices are controlled by the Turkish government. If they don't have the brand you want, they will probably have the same thing under another brand name. The Nöbetçi, or On-duty Pharmacist If you go to an eczane after normal hours or on Sunday, and find it closed, you'll see a sign on the door with an address and telephone number for the nöbetçi (nuh-beht-chee) or on-duty pharmacist. The duty rotates between eczanes in the same city or town, so at least one is always open. The nöbetçi eczane might not be close by, so you may need to ask a taxi driver to take you there if you don't know where it is.

  3. The Turkish Ministry of Health have confirmed that passengers without Turkish residency permits will not be permitted to enter Turkey within 14 days of a visit to China, South Korea, Iran, Iraq or Italy. If a passenger has a residency permit, they may be allowed to enter Turkey but they will be tested on arrival for COVID-19. A positive test will lead to the passenger going straight to the quarantine facility. A negative test will lead to mobility restrictions – either self-isolation or full quarantine for 14 days. You should carry additional supplies of necessary medication in carry-on luggage.
  4. This may seem strange to some but here goes... I have been in Turkey for four years now. I have had to go to the hospital 3 times. Once was before the law of needing insurance was in play and twice after the law came. Now I admit that sadly I do not have insurance and my visa is expired. I plan to stay a bit longer and pay the fines and take the ban when I go. I have my reasons for doing this.. however... I wonder.... if I go to the hospital for treatment of what I think is a worthy cause to go without insurance willing to pay cash for the treatment, but the visa is expired... can the police be notified? I mean, when you go to the ER do they somehow share that info with the police ? I know that if you check into a hotel the police can see that you are there .. is it the same with the ER department? Otherwise I will need to find a private doctor and pay cash there as I am sure they will not ask too many questions. But I think I have an issue that needs to be addressed pretty soon and I really need some answers if you all can help. thanks
  5. So now that I have my lovely little girl with me in Turkey and are all happy about this a few new problems have arisen. When we were planning to move out here I was worried about the heat and about wild dogs, she is fluffy and only little. We sorted this by getting clippers (her first home made haircut is a whole different story) and bribing the neighbours pit bull mix into being her bodyguard The one thing I didn`t think about was nature, it started as soon as the grass started to turn golden, she kept on stopping every few meters to pull quite nasty seeds out of her paws. The neighbours short haired dog doesn't seem to have any problems with it, so we thought the best way to go would be to shave the fur in-between her toes. Her paws are very fury and webbed toes, she is a Tibetan Terrier cross. This has made it worse Now she has sores in-between her toes, it looks quite angry and crusty. The only way I can explain this is by thinking its the seeds actually breaking the skin, its very thin and delicate in that area. I checked the internet as well for soreness on paws etc. and one thing they come up with is grain allergies??? as I cook for her anyway how can I not use grain?? or are there grains she can eat?? the only different grain I used was something looking like Barley but turning out to need a lot longer cooking, translation for the name on the packet just said "pulses" (bakliyat) but I have seen the same wort on totally different grains so ??? Another problem is she has got little sore bumps all over her but mostly on the legs and undercarriage. The seem to itch her, so once again, seeds or maybe mosquito bites. (before anyone asks, yes of course she is treated for fleas and ticks) Also I`m quite worried now, before we left England my Vet who is Spanish herself, said to register my dog with a local vet as there may be different vaccinations needed on top of what she already has for England. She didn't go into detail but she seem to think that in the Mediterranean areas are different diseases we don't vaccinate for in England. She mentioned its because of the mosquitoes. I did register her over here with a reputable vet who put all her details into his pc, checked her pet passport, gave us some more Frontline but then said that she is fully vaccinated and he doesn't know about any other vaccinations. So I believed him, but now I have just stumbled over an illness called "Canine leishmaniasis" I know that a lot of you are doggy lovers as well so maybe you can advise please? I really could`t bear it if her life would be miserable because of my move
