Re: Turkish Lira Rates

Turkish Beginner: yes, the rates all over dropped last January. They started picking up again at the beginning of February and continued during March. Maisie

Re: Turkish Lira Rates

Well I for one am glad to see the tendency for the rate is still upwards, when I last looked it was 2.419, if it gets up to 2.45 by next Monday I will be reasonably happy, so I will change some or all into TL.

One could argue "but if you do'nt change it you will lose the interest you would make on it" Well, last year that argument might have stood up but not now with interest rates as they are, we are getting kicked in the bum from two directions at once. But then again it's always worse somewhere else, just think if you were in Spain......it's painfull there.

apart from security what is the legality of bringing a lump of money through turkish customs-and uk customs---is it illegal?
Unless changed recently you can bring any amount of cash into Turkey but you are advised to declare it so that you do not have problems when taking money out of the country as there is a maximum of US$5000 or equivalent unless previously declared

Re: Turkish Lira Rates

From HMRC site:

"When you need to declare cash
You only need to declare cash if you are carrying 10,000 euros or more (or the equivalent value in other currencies) and you are:

entering the UK from a country outside the EU
leaving the UK to travel directly to a country outside the EU
If you are entering or leaving the EU through an EU country other than the UK, the declaration is made in that country."

Re: Turkish Lira Rates

what dangers are there with declaring amounts in excess of the 10k euros-can you be stopped -or is it just formality to register the transfer--and when you want to leave turkey with large amounts what is the 'sting'?

Re: Turkish Lira Rates

The 10K Euros refers to entering and leaving UK . The 5K USD refers to entering Turkey.You need to consider both when going directly from UK to Turkey or the reverse.
