Re: Bank account

We kept our original bank account open with Natwest purely for using access (credit card) for emergencies and things like paying for holidays ...it means you are covered in the event of a travel firm collapsing
We opened an account with Nationwide, so I can get my pensions out over here with no charges
As far as I understand, you have to be a resident in the UK before you can open a UK account ...I was at the time and then notified both banks that I was moving to Turkey...both said no problem as the accounts were already opened, you are supposed to have a UK address to open one , but they don't seem to mind if you move abroad once it is opened

Re: Bank account

I would think its very easy to do maybe on line or by phone as you already have an account.If I have read this right , you want an sterling account at your Turkish bank ?

Re: Bank account

I think that you can open an account using internet banking at the same bank and branch that you have a TL account with.

Re: Bank account

I checked with my bank today and you cannot open a Turkish bank account with ANY bank in Turkey unless you are here in person - in Turkey - yourself, as you must sign numerous papers to set up the account. It is the Turkish banking laws that state this. You don't have to actually live in Turkey though .. a hotel address is ok if you are just on holiday here ... but you do need a Turkish tax number which is very easy to get ... just go to your local VERDI office with a copy of the photo page of your passport and your address in Turkey and both your parents names - even if they are no longer alive. Then they will give you a paper with your tax number on it. You must wait 2 working days before you can then go and open a Turkish bank account. I am currently getting 12% interest on my monthly deposit account at Yapi Kredi bank in Side. x Angela in Side x

Re: Bank account

evo80 - It amounts to the same thing - it is still opening a NEW bank account - this time in British Stirling but again into a Turkish bank, despite having a TL account there - it is a new bank account - so the same rules apply -
