Istanbul Expat Guide
Make the most of your Istanbul Expat Life
The "Queen Of Cities" offers an exciting intercultural experience for expats, starting with cultural highlights, like the lavishly decorated Topkapı Sarayı, the imperial enclave of the Ottoman emperors for four centuries,, the folkloristic festivities on the occasion of Turkey’s Kurban Bayramı, the Sacrifice Feast, up to getting a taste of traditional köfte. The InterNations community helps you as an Istanbul expat to enjoy your expat stay in Turkey to the fullest. Our members have already come across many of the questions you’ll have when starting your expatriate life in Istanbul and kindly offer you their assistance, from ʺWhat are the hottest nightclubs in Istanbul at the moment?ʺ up to ʺHow difficult is it for an academic expat to have their residence permit renewed?ʺ.
