The Expat Turkey Chapter welcomes you!

Merhaba and a heart-felt welcome to the InterNations community for expats in Turkey! Our international network caters to your specific needs and supports you in relocating to and putting down roots in Turkey. Living abroad in a foreign country is definitely a great intercultural experience, but typically brings up a lot of questions for expatriates Turkey: ʺWhat is the best international school for my kids in Turkey?ʺ, ʺHow do I find a job for my spouse in Ankara?ʺ or ʺWhere in Istanbul can I meet fellow expats and compatriots from my home country?” Just to name a few examples…

InterNations aim is to help you, as an expatriate, in becoming part of the Turkey expat community and exploring the Turkish way of life in all its aspects: From enjoying the traditional köfte to celebrating Kurban Bayramı, the Sacrifice Feast.

Next to Turkey we host several more communities in Eastern Europe, e.g., our network of Expatriates Saudi Arabia. Or you might be interested in our France Expat community which is also fairly active.

Enjoy the Turkey Expats Living

With attractions ranging from the heavily forested mountains near the Black Sea to semi-desert Anatolia, Turkey fascinates expatriates and globetrotters of many nationalities every year. The sizable expat Turkey community is, however, mostly drawn to the country by the urban growth of Istanbul and its political as well as economic opportunities, e.g. in the textile industry. Whether you move to and live in Turkey for professional or private reasons, you’ll surely take with you lifelong memories of great international experiences and intercultural exchange.
