am leena. Visiting here in Istanbul this week.  How can I contact you.  Am on whatsapp on my Dubai number 00971505529848. Hoping to hear from you.

@ leenasher > Just wanted to inform you that Simar has posted her message back in 2011 and that she is not an active member on the forum. :)

If you have some questions to ask regarding expatriation or if you are looking to make new acquaintances, i will advise you to create a new thread on the Istanbul forum please.

Thank you,

Hi Anju

last year i had been in Turkey and spent there 9 month, it was good experience for me, but in my initial days i faced lots of problem. Turkish food is totally different from Indian foods so please keep some spices so that you can make some foods easily.

Dear Rupesh

I would advice you to find job before coming to istanbul. In that way it would be easier for you to get living permission

As most people here prefer using turkish so its better to learn some turkish words at first,

Most imp prob ppl from abroad face in turkey in finding job is coz of language and work permission

With regards
Rohit

Dear Amaan shk

Turkey is beautiful city with good people and lot of natural beauty
i will reply you on the sequence you have asked
1. yea its difficult to find job companies usually dont hire coz of work permit regulations and its just extra burden on them. but if your qualification is good and you try enough i m sure you can find
2. Resident permit is easy to get. you need turkish tax num, health insurance and enough money in your bank which is approx 500$ per month. authorities are very helpful and fast
3. WOrk permit is provided by company who will hire you and it depends on how fast you find job
4 Getting job is always depend on your qualification and more then that your luck . personal contacts work very good here
5 how soon you can learn turkish depends on how smart you are .Its not hard not easy language easy to read as word is in latin and many words common with urdu and hindi

Thanks Rohit

for your kind reply

so residence permit i can get if i show 500 USD in my account . how long will be the period of residence permit like if its for a year do i know to show 500USD X 12 . or how it work

i have seen jobs available in kariyer.net . i am just worried about the language.

what if i start a small coffe shop or some other means of business for current maintaining the situation of my daily needs


i would like to stay in istanbul near basaksehir i have been there and the place and apartmnet are quiet nice.

i am only worried about language . i have applied on kariyer .net but they ask for some TC number same on akur also

yeah you are right if you need 12 month permission then it would be 12* 500$ . and also from government banks.
you just have to show reciept that you have that much money exchanged from then so there is always way to do even if you dnt have

language is prob coz ppl speak turkish mostly here and its very hard to communicatein markets or locally in english with them.
if you able to find job before shifting it would be best

Regarding opening small cafe its nice business and with good margin but again you need local language in this n enough resource to survive that business

ROhit

thanks Rohit

and what about you said goverment bank. like if i bring the cash inshallah i will be having that amount with me as i have saved some . but cannot carry that amount it will be in my bank here so do i need to transfer will i be able to open an account in trukish bank if i come on a tourist visa.

how much time did you took to learn turkish ..i am just worried about language and as i asked you earlier what is the package if i do any odd jobs like will a basic english knowing person can get a pacakge of 5000 LIRA a month or its lesser than that.

inshallah i hipe i will get some job as i am seeing a lots of oppurtunity in website but the require the TC number .

BY tc num i think you mean turkish citizen num or identity num
there is num in resident permit which will work as that num which you will get after completing all govt formalities

IF you do any odd job you can maximum get 1000-1500 lira per month. you can carry get amount or from your bank you can transfer and open a account here.Best is carry a card go to bank and ask them to deposit the amount and give you exchange reciept

Hi

To all my fellow indians in istanbul. I am looking at a potential move to Istanbul with my family (including my wife and daughter) and just wanted to get a sense of what's it like for indian's to live in istanbul, are there many indians around? what is the average cost of living, medical facilities, schools for children my daughter is 16 months and would need to go to a play school, is language an issue? do we get Hindi TV channels in Istanbul, are there many indian restaurants, is it a safe place for women specially Hindu since my job involves travelling?

Any advise would be realy really helpful

looking forward to hearing back

thanks and regards

I am planning to move to Istanbul.

Pl let me know what groceries are available there like Toor Dal, Udud dahll, and other indian cooking needs

Any Indian TV channels though satelite or other TV

what is Jadoo TV reciever. Can I get it in Istanbul or in India

You may find lentils & vegetables, but you will be hard pressed to find South Asian spices. There are big bazaars in Istanbul for spices, but getting specific spices is a chore.

The salary scale for a designer depends on their prior experience and demand in the market. i am not sure if anyone will be able to give you an idea about how much he could earn.

For general expenses, please follow this thread

Hi rachna this is um ali  frm kuwait since u have 2 kids school going u must be having idea Fr their monthly school expenses pls let me know

Check if u have freind circle or someone know in that field Fr help it wil be great help

It is funny that I was having the exact same conversation yesterday regarding the education in Turkey.

Private education, where your kids would be able to study in English, a friend of mine has a 12 year old kid and his school (only) expenses are around 55,000 TL /year or around 4,600 TL/month. That of course is a high end school.
Another friend has a 7 year old kid who is paying around 25,000 TL/year or around 2,100 TL/month. That is a regular level school.

Govt schools are free, but the education is mainly in Turkish. This actually holds for almost all the places. 

Hopefully Rachana can also give an idea about her expenses in Turkish schools, which will be helpful.

Hope this helps.
Good luck
