Moving to and from Turkey with the professionals

Turkey is a country in which – with an increasing tendency – German companies have established themselves in a wide range of industries. This, in turn, causes an increasing number of job-related immigrants from Germany. Since Turkey is not one of the EU countries, the relocation preparations, which also include some administrative procedures, should begin in good time.

Before the actual move to Turkey takes place, the entry and customs regulations should be clarified. For the entry you need as a German citizen either an identity card or passport and a visa, which must be applied for in advance at a Turkish consulate general. Within two weeks after moving to Turkey, you must have deregistered your residence in Germany. For the import of the removal goods, a bill of materials as well as the valid work and residence permit must be presented in accordance with customs regulations. If you transfer your car to Turkey yourself, do not forget the green insurance card. Of course, we will gladly take care of all these formalities.

Your new environment

Just three percent of Turkey is located in Europe, the remaining part geographically belongs to Asia. 80 percent of the population are Turks, 20 percent Kurds. 99 percent of the inhabitants are Muslims, which is why religious and cultural customs differ from those in Europe. Ankara is the capital of the country. The country has a millennia-old history and is accordingly rich in cultural and artistic treasures. It is mentally and culturally fascinating. Lively, western-style cities, oriental markets, many cultural assets and beautiful beaches are extremely attractive.

Antalya is a sought-after vacation spot on the Mediterranean. The seaside resort of Alanya is also located on the Turkish Riviera. The port city of Istanbul is the economic center of Turkey. The city on the Bosporus is built on seven hills and connects Asia with Europe. Adana, located in the south of the Taurus Mountains, is also one of the largest cities in the country. They all have one thing in common. They combine history with modernity. Throughout the country, the hospitality of the locals is as impressive as the delicious Turkish-Oriental cuisine.
