Re: registering my uk phone in turkey

You must have a passport entry stamp within the last month. Register at Turkcell pay the duty at the tax office and register with the police. At least that's the procedure in Alanya but Turkcell will tell you the drill.

Re: registering my uk phone in turkey

beyazbayan probably knows better than me - although In Alanya we have registered 2 phones (one each) husband used kimlik as he is Turkish, I used UK passport paid the tax have never registered either with police. I did receive a message from the police on my mobile phone telling me to watch out for crime in the area so they know I have the phone but I never actually registered it with them.

No the register with police is a new one but then again it may have changed by the time you travel from Turkcell and the Tax office. to the Police station. Bu bir Turkiye.

Re: registering my uk phone in turkey

In Bodrum I had to get a form from the harbour police, get it stamped at the main police office (on main bodrum road justo pposite oasis) and then go to turkcell, after going to the tax office. 115TL tax and 50TL at turkcell.
This was in February. I have a scanned copy of form to save a trip to harbour police.

Re: registering my uk phone in turkey

How long is this registration valid for, as I thought it was only for a limited period?

Can you do it at either Vodafone or Turk Telecom?
