Re: money scam

ANDY2 uk...the price is in pounds converted to lira on the day.... so there is no set price for a visa as they will not accept pounds.... when in turkey do as you like then
and getting a car so that no one but you can drive it isn't exactly beneficial eithr...especially now that you need a residency to sell it....

Re: money scam

Nothing is sacred in Turkey if you are a foreigner. Laws are amended quite often. Recently :

New visa retsrictions.
Big hike in Resident Permit fees.
Requirement for foreigners to be in possesion of an Resident Permit when buying or selling a car.
Restrictions on the purchase of Land and Property which has restricted the sale to Turkish citizens only.

Most laws are applied retrospectively ie. if you are the legal owner of a property or a car then you are directly affected by new laws and restrictions, irrespective of the law that applied at the time of purchase.

Buyer beware.

Re: money scam

I still think that the price should be set in TL I think they know if they show the price inLira it would astonish a lot of people. Over 8500Tl for 2 people how can they justify such an amount

I have to disagree being a tourist with a property it has become increasingly difficult to visit since we purchased. It is also becoming apparant as time goes by that Turkey despite wanting tourism and money with which this brings it cares little for the foreigner, namely in the property scams, the bullying that occurs on sites and the exhorbitant maintenace charges, now the visa entry which is going to take some planning with flights and prices. I love turkey and its culture what I don't like is the greed and lack of respect that the government and lack of laws which do not protect the foreigner, the scammers still get away with all there scams leaving a trail of destruction and heartache behind them.

Re: money scam - resident permits

onz. In May the visa you got then would have been for 90 days, we were there in June and I have checked mine it was the old visa 90 days only, I beleive the new one says 90 days in 180 on it. We are there again in September so will have to pay again.
