  1. Hey everyone! I've been coming and going to this forum trying to find answers and also help others with whatever knowledge i might have with my personal experience... But now after 4 years of being in a relationship with my Turkish girlfriend I have finally popped the question and we are now engaged and planning our marriage next year! For this I have come to this forum in an attempt to get some directions and help from you guys as I know this things might change with time or place and nothing like some personal experience and help from you. We are planning to marry in March or so next year in Istanbul over the district marriage office. Currently I'm doing a European voluntary project in Istanbul and I have applied for a RP that will last till March next year (this wont be an issue i guess i can always leave and come back with a touristic visa for the weeding celebration i guess). I hold a Portuguese citizenship and I have already contacted the Portuguese embassy in Ankara regarding this plans in order for me to get some guidelines from them as well. But still wanted to know from this forum and in easier words and realities how the celebration of a marriage goes in Turkey and whats the steps I should expect and documents I should arrange in order to do this without any problems. I have coming and going to Turkey since 2016 and I know how this bureaucratic things change and its always hard to get a straight answer but your help would be much appreciated! I will kindly wait your replies! Thank you in advance
  2. Hi everyone i'm syrian and i'm living in Antakya/Hatay i'm looking for any info about how to go to IGCSE exam please anyone can help with any little information
  3. First thank you for reading my question this is my first post I'm new here in Turkey and I have just received my residency permit. I wanted to open a bank account with Ziraat Bankası but I started coming across red flags as I was reading online like "Turkey is a high risk country!" and "The bank's credit card might not work online at all" etc, so I want to know are these concerns valid and/or is there a way around them? I just want to highlight that online shopping from (Amazon US)is very important to me so if I'm not going to be able to do so.. is there a work around it? Your answer is most appreciated, thank you.
  4. We are looking for an exciting guide to show us around Istanbul for a BBC show! You do not need experience as a tour guide but will need to have good English and be able to show us parts of the city that will awaken the senses. We want to experience the weird and wonderful side of Istanbul – nothing is out of bounds!! Please get in touch with [email protected] if you are interested, or if you know anyone that would fit the bill! I look forward to hearing from you! Freddie
  5. According to the Anadolu news agency, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdağ said that much talked-of decision to hold early elections in Turkey 'has become a step which helped foil the plans of anti-Turkish forces'. Judging from the latest reports, speeding-up of the election campaign really confused the Turkish opposition, driving followers of Fethullah Gülen into total disarray. Their large-scale protest rallies planned for November 2019, were thwarted. This is the subject of the letter which the U. S. Chargé d'Affaires in Turkey Philip Kosnett addressed to the U. S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Mr. Kosnett reports ruptures in the coordinating center located outside Turkey, namely, Hizmet movement's units located in the USA and founded by Gülen. Judging from the fact that their funding has been suspended, supporters of Gülen have already spent significant resources for preparation and the start of a major multi-grade project which is scheduled for 3 November 2019. In addition to such surprise strategy Turkish authorities extended the emergency rule in the country until the completion of the elections. The emergency rule had been imposed ever since the 2016 attempted coup. As a result, they messed up all plans of opposition and caused panic among potential coupists by isolating the already divided groups, thus virtually paralyzing their activities.
  6. Hi there I hope someone can help me. I am a British Citizen and I married a Turkish man in Fethiye in 2000. We had two children together (girls, now 16 and 14 - they were both born in the UK). We bought an apartment together in Fethiye in 2001 and lived in Turkey. Both names are on the tapu. After 14 years of marriage, in early 2014, I found out many awful things about my husband - he was having a 3 year affair with a local girl who worked at the cinema, he was also using prostitutes and filming himself (I found the camera), he was watching teenage pornography and in thousands of debt without my knowledge, had a gun in the house, plus many other things. After he knew I found out about all this, he just blamed me for his behaviour. I knew for my sanity and my children's safety that I had to leave. On the evening of 13th June 2014, my children and I got to Dalaman airport without my husband knowing and we boarded a plane to the UK. I left my house, my job, my friends, we left everything behind. I wrote a letter to my English neighbours explaining why I was leaving. I brought everything with me - I have the marriage certificate, the tapu, the camera and all the evidence of his unreasonable behaviour etc. It is now 2017 and my girls and I have never gone back to Turkey. We are now settled in the UK. The girls rarely speak to their father. However... I have heard a rumour that he has recently divorced me over in Turkey - probably on the grounds of desertion. After all, it has been over two years since I left and I have not had the money to have ever asked a solicitor in the UK for help with it. My ex husband will not answer my FB messages whether he has divorced me or not, but he has been asking my daughter for our address. My question is: How has he managed to get a judge to grant the divorce when there is property or children involved? What happens now in regards to the apartment if he has divorced me? Can I instruct a solicitor here or in Turkey to sell the apartment because half of it is mine still? He has never paid any child maintenance while I have been in the UK. I want the value of my half of the apartment back because as far as I know he is living it in without any worries now. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you x

  13. Hi. I need some advices. To make the story short; I met a turkish man in May in Alanya. Met, of course, at a club. He was in Alanya at a holiday. We had a great week together and I went back to Turkey in September to meet him. I had my sister with me. We stayed in Alanya again. I am going back in November to meet his family and I am staying in Turkey for two more weeks. I ahve told him that before we do anything he has to visit me in Norway and meet my family also. So he can meet them and also get a more understanding of where I come from and my culture. And if we ever going to move here (if not I moving to Turkey) he can see how the country is first. I am 29 and he is 32 years old. We have been talking about what we should do, b/c if the relationship should work for å long time one of us got to move. I am a social worker and I don't know how to speak turkish (but I can learn), so I think it will be hard for me to get work in Turkey. But in Norway... if you want to get a job you almost need an education 99% of the time. So I think it would be hard for him to get a job here. And he need to learn Norwegain of course. The one thing that scares me is to not know. Should I let go of my life here, sell my apartment, quit my job to an uncertain future? Or should he? I also have study loan that I need to pay, so I need a job if I am moving to Turkey in the future. I can't ask him to pay for my debt. But I think I have found a middleway I have the right to get unpaid permition from work if I want to study some more. I can study online. I was thinking of Sociology or maybe Journalism for one year. I can rent out my apartment for a year and live in Turkey. I will, of course, get more study loan. I not shure if I can get a visa for a year? But then me and my boyfriend will figure out if we are right for eachother, the normal - everyday life we will experience together ++. And if I do this next autumn I think I have what I need with the salary per year ++ if we want to move to Norway and he must apply for a visa. I don't know... I haven't told him about my idea yet. He wants us to get married and say that we can live in Turkey or Norway. It is up to me where we are going to live. When I go back in November we have to figure this out. What should we do? What have you been doing if you have been in a relationship with someone who lives in a different country? I will be happy for the respons and advice from you! Anything will help because I am lost and my brain is tired of all the thinking. PS! This wasn't so short after all. Sorry about that!

    Temple Of Apollo Didyma

    Inside the main section of the temple of Apollo - http://turkishtravelblog.com/temple-of-apollo/
  22. Inside the Temple of Apollo in Altinkum
  23. The temple was connected to the ancient city of Miletus via a long paved road known these days as the sacred route. Construction was never fully completed but some historians have said that if it had been, the Temple of Apollo would have rivaled the Delhi in Greece. Read more here - http://turkishtravelblog.com/temple-of-apollo/
  24. It dates from Ancient Greek times and is located at the entrance to the resort. You won’t need for a full day to explore it, and it would be wise not to go midday when the sun is blaring. If you have already seen Ephesus in Selcuk, the Temple Of Apollo pails in comparison however it is still worth a visit. Read more here - http://turkishtravelblog.com/temple-of-apollo/
