The Turkey guide

Latest articles

Starting your own business is always an intense experience. On the one hand, there is the excitement of seeing your project come alive, along with the expectation of financial gain; on the other hand are the somewhat burdensome administrative requirements. Turkey is no exception and you will have you go through a number of bureaucratic procedures, but the country’s significant business opportunities definitely make it worth the effort.

A mix of Middle Eastern mysticism and European tradition, Turkey is a well-established tourist hotspot. Offering its visitors a glance back into history framed with picturesque mountaintops and Mediterranean beaches, it is a great place for vacation. But what is it like for work?

Pets, and cats in particular, are fondly loved by most Turkish people, who prove incredibly caring to street animals. In large cities, you will find veterinary clinics and pet food or toys retailers at every corner. Accordingly, taking care or your furry or feathery friends will not be much of a challenge once you are settled.

Traditions dating back to the Ottoman era still permeate Turkey, combining with modern influences to form a unique blend. Affinity with Turkish culture is the driver prompting many expats to relocate to the country in the first place. If you are not familiar yet with Turkish lifestyle, great surprises are waiting for you, and Turkish people’s generosity and warmth will definitely contribute to make you want to stay.

Characterised by a very child-friendly culture, Turkey offers ample amenities and services designed to cater to the educational, health and leisure needs of your children.
