Make the most of living and working in Istanbul

Expat living in Istanbul raises plenty of questions, for instance: ʺWhat are the requirements from Turkish authorities to get a residence permit?”, ʺWhat are the hottest nightclubs in Istanbul at the moment?ʺ, or ”Who can recommend colleges and universities in town?”

Finding all this expat information about living and working in Istanbul takes a lot of time. Our Istanbul expat guide is there to make your relocation to Istanbul as easy as possible. Starting with embassies and consulates to information about expat institutions & clubs, the guide covers all the different aspects of expat life in Istanbul.

We certainly provide other expat communities than our members in Istanbul with useful information on everyday life. Our guide features a range of topics, from living in Riyadh to moving to Austin.
