Credit card application

Hello,

Does anybody have info about credit card in Turkey?
I have a monthly income in Turkey legally which is paid to a branch of ziraat in ankara. However, I live in istanbul now. Could I apply for the credit card in a branch inside istanbul or I should go to ankara?
6 months ago the branch manager said that I should have an income statement for 6 months. Now, the 6 moths is full. However, I did not change my account (VIRMAN) to the branch near my home in istanbul. I do not know whether the money should be paid to this branch in order to apply for credit card?

thanks

Re: Credit card application

Generally the card must be issued by the branch where you keep your money. It does not need to be close to your home. For years we had one from a branch 700km away.

Let me clarify Ibrahim Abi

I mean I have an account which was opened in Ankara and till today my income paid to that account. Now, I am in Istanbul If I want to apply for a credit card could I do in any branch of ziraat in istanbul. Actually I have changed my account to the branch in my area but it has been just for a month.

Re: Credit card application

I am not sure that a new branch will give you a card immediately. What we did when we moved to Istanbul to work was to keep the account in our home town, have the salary paid into that account and got a credit card through the home town branch.

So to get credit card from hometown what did you do?
Did you go there or just apply from new branch?
Or you got it before coming new town/?

Re: Credit card application

Do they need the below document really?

*Varsa garantör/kefil ve belgeleri

No one I have!

I have

*Kimlik belgesi fotokopisi,

*Oturma izni ya da çalışma izni,

*Öğrenci ise öğrenci belgesi,

I am an assistant researcher in university with a monthly income. I have had an account for three years

do you remember whether they need SGK HIZMET DOKUMU from e devlet?
The banker wanted me that one but I have a personal insurance (Ozel sigorta) he said that take a document from university that you are insured!
I have an insurance card but it seems that he did not accept it!
I have a document that shows I have a monthly salary and he wanted that too
no problem with this one
but sigorta!!
