Re: Trying to open a bank account in Bodrum

As Bez's comment there are many banks that will allow foreigners to open an account without them having an RP...The only area giving foreigners problems if not holding RP's is Istanbul.

That sounds interesting! Despite trying to open a bank account with four banks between 11am and 5pm we were unsuccessful!
At Yapi Kredi Bank at two mins to 5pm closing time we were told our Council Tax wasn't sufficient. They need to see a utility bill probably for an individual apartment. At Ak Bank we couldn't open a joint account and it needs to be used regularly. At HSBC we were told we would have to put money in regularly and pay bills so they want people to invest in the country. Another bank-Hali Bank just were not intersted. We may return to Garanti Bank tomorrow. Hard work on a very hot day 35degrees!!

Problem we both have is that we donít receive utility bills for our apartments at the moment

Any ideas? Iíve heard there is an Isbank in London so may try phoning them tomorrow
The utility bill you mention should have been a Minimum of, 2 UK utility billy + your Passport + a Tax number.

Re: Trying to open a bank account in Bodrum

I went into HSBC to change my UK address yesterday. They needed my UK National Insurance number & I had to sign a Residency Permit Form, which she didn't actually let me read! I guess this is for UK tax. I had a letter posted to the UK stating we have to declare any money held in Turkey. Luckily I only keep enough for my electricity direct debit, dask & buildings & contents insurance in my Turkish Account
