Blood Test to Marry in Istanbul?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am an American citizen and my fiancee is a non-Turkish citizen as well, however he is residing with family in Istanbul. We were planning on getting married in Istanbul next month but there's a wrench in our plans. I have a morbid phobia of needles and he has been told that I would need to get a full blood draw, like from the arm. Is this true? Others have informed us that it's just a finger prick. Which is it?

I was waiting for someone more knowledgeable to answer you, but as noone has I shall give you the benefit of my experience.

I am a Brit and got married in Turkey and I too have a phobia about needles. I cannot remember if it was a finger prick or not but I do know it was not that traumatic. I survived and I am sure that also will.

Good luck
