Opening a bank account
Opening a personal bank account in the State bank of Turkey. Try it yourself, and in case of refusal, contact us. Consultations, recommendations, prices.
Theoretically, it is relatively easy to open an account in a Turkish bank for a citizen of Russia or CIS countries, but reality suggests that it is almost impossible to do this act independently, with the exception of Ukrainian refugees.
You can bypass dozens of banks and get rejected everywhere, no one will even talk to you. It is possible to open an account only in state-owned banks: Ziraat Bankasi or Vakif Bankasi. However, when you come to the bank, there is a 99% probability that you will be refused to open an account.
To open an account with state-owned banks, the client must provide a passport, a translation of the passport into Turkish, a copy of the Tapu (the right to own real estate), a housing rental agreement, a Turkish phone number and a personal tax number in Turkey. To open an account, it is also necessary to put a deposit of 30,000 to 50,000 liras into the account (2-3 thousand US dollars). The deposit is blocked for three months and you will not be able to use it for operations with the account.
Experience suggests that a special recommendation and communication is needed to open an account. Our rates include 300 liras for the transfer of a passport, 500 liras for obtaining a tax number and account opening services from $ 300 and above, depending on the situation and the location of the bank branch. Services are provided in Istanbul and Antalya, other regions are also possible.
