Account open processing time

I hope everyone is okay.

I wonder how long it takes to open a new bank account with all the document ready, and if I can get a bank card on the same day.

Thanks in advance.

You can open an account quickly and easily, if you have a valid passport and tax number (available from the tax office). You will not get any kind of bank card for at least two weeks. Banks in Turkey are reluctant to give credit cards to foreigners, they will send out an ATM card to enable you to take money out easily.

Thank you IbrahimAbi.

My plan was to visit Turkey for a week and opened an account while I was there. But if they send me a card later, I think this plan won't work since I don't have an address to receive it.

Thanks again.

Hi Sun,

I have opened a bank account and received the bank card the same day at the branch. All i needed was a vergi number which is the tax number and passport, both the tax office (vergi dairasi) and bank used my hotel address to register me.

I went to ziraat bank.
