moving to turkey

Hi my name is Dave and I am looking at moving to Turkey in the next 6 Months any help would appreciated best and easiest way to do things help on the Turkish legal stuff that kind of thing.

I am looking at the Fethiye area but would like a bit of help to see if it is right for me I would like a nice area with nice people good all year round weather. shops bars bit of nightlife, a beach would be nice or at least near one and somewhere that is not over priced to live but flexible on that if it is a good place, Expats would be good as will be on my own.

I am looking at renting might buy later so if anyone could help with agency's or people to contact for accommodation looking for a house or villa

Many Thanks
Dave

Re: moving to turkey

I would keep to a short lease/contract until the RP problems are ironed out, and welcome to the forum Dave

Re: moving to turkey

Welcome to the forum Dave. Good idea to rent first then if you don't like the area you can try a different area. Good luck

Good advice from Martin above

Resident permit, without one you are only allowed to be in the country 90 days in 180

Re: moving to turkey

The residence permit problem, once you move here you will get to know the 'efficiency' and 'easy to follow Instructions' of pretty much every aspect of Turkish living you'll need to get in touch with the Turkish Consulate in London, part of the new rules wrt residence permits is that first time applicants must apply in their country of residence (I assume you're in UK?)

Fethiye, unlike some other smaller resorts is open year round, but (from what I have been told) is more expensive.

Welcome to the forum and good luck with your move

Re: moving to turkey

Hi Dave..welcome to the forum i would echo Martin and Bal Canavars advice..rent before you commit yourself get a good look around try the place in different seasons..it can be really cold in the winter
there are quite a few members here who have made the Fethiye area their home and it is a nice place not much in the way of a beach apart rom calış and Ölü Deniz

Theres been a mention above about residency Permit and if you are serious about spending longer than the e-visa (ie 90 days in a 180) then for a first RP you now have to apply in your own country and you can have a permit for a year

i live in the Alanya area which suits me it doesn't shut down in the winter as do many of the resorts along the Aegean it has a mix of nationalities and if you like beach life there are miles of them here
i wish you well and hope you find what you are looking for..but take your time.

Re: moving to turkey

Hi Dave,
Fethiye is a brilliant place to do the "try before you buy" thing, it has everything most people would want, a superb Marina/harbour, a promenade you can walk for miles on the flat, shops, supermarkets and a great weekly market, there is plenty of history, culture and places of beauty on the doorstep and a beach within easy distance. A big hospital (hopefully you'd never need it) and in my opinion it is most definitely not expensive, having said that we are from Kalkan an hour down the road that whilst beautiful IS a bit expensive.

However, as said, if you're thinking of living there you need to sort the residency permit out first, get on the wrong side of that and you could find yourself being excluded for good. Good Luck . . . . . Go for it and ENJOY!
