Are you an expat working and living in Turkey? Or are you preparing to move soon to Istanbul, Antalya or any other of the Turkish international hotspots?
Expat life in Turkey has much to offer and provides a great intercultural experience – from discovering the countryside like the Bosporus, learning how Turkish people celebrate Kurban Bayramı, the Sacrifice Feast, up to tasting Turkey’s favorite dishes such as köfte.
Moving to and living in Turkey requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Turkish expat life. Living abroad in Turkey raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Turkey?ʺ, ʺHow difficult is it for an academic expat to have their residence permit renewed?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Istanbul should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Turkish municipality in Ankara?ʺ
Collecting all that information on working and living in Turkey is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Turkey aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Turkey. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from local infrastructure, to expat institutions & clubs or embassies and consulates, up to restaurants & nightlife. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺWhat are the hottest nightclubs in Istanbul at the moment?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.
Moreover, our expat directory for Turkey includes recommended listings of expat institutions and relocation services, e.g. colleges and universities or foreign-media news agents. As a member, you’ll also be able to share your experiences of living abroad in Turkey with your fellow expats on the InterNations Forum. We are looking forward to welcoming you with a heart-felt Merhaba from our expats living and working in Turkey.
