Hi there, im Irish and marrying a Turkish National. Your fiance will have to call the Department of Foreign Affairs in Britain to find out about what documentation he needs to marry you etc. Its not hard to get that part sorted out! As regards him moving to Turkey im afraid i cant help you there because im not moving to turkey when i get married, im staying in Ireland. This is mostly becasue i have a law degree but i would not be able to get a job in Turkey in that profession, or any other for that matter ha ha, considering i dont speak turkish. But a lot of foreigners who move to Turkey are very happy there! I think you should ask him what maybe he wants to do when he lives in Turkey as regards work etc. Cos i was reading about ti and it gave a list of jobs that foreign nationals cant do...and it was practically everything ha ha :D

Anything else i can help with, please contact me no problems ;)

Hello Turgiz,

Welcome to the forum. I'm also getting married to a Turkish National and will be moving to Turkey, but I'm American not British. As a foreigner planning to moving to Turkey, I totally relate to what you and your fiance will be facing in the future. While I'm not British, I would be more then happy to share with you any information I learn. :)

Foreigners are few in Turkey but it seems the majority are from the UK so you should find it easy to learn of their experiences. Unfortunately, I won't have the same opportunity since even fewer American woman live in Turkey and marry Turkish men. :huh: :doh:

We will spend a few months in Ireland and a few months in Turkey to see what things are like for us both, but eventually,we plan to settle here. Its not easy but some things are worth fighting for! ;)

Hi Gizm. I married a turkish man in 1999 when I was 18. I had a wonderful Turkish wedding, but only my mother came. The rest of my family disapproved. I am really happy in Turkey and have two lovely little girls. Not for anything would I change what I did. I now live in Persembe nr Ordu on the Black Sea coast and we hope to move soon to Kusadasi or near there. It has been difficult being the only foreigner here and having to learn the customs and language but my husbands family have been lovely and I will never move back to England. The only other difficulties have been with the Emniyet about visas and citizenship etc which takes so long and living where I do means that nobody has a clue what they're doing! Good luck.

Definately correct. He must go to his local registry office and enter his "bands". As Tracy said the rest is done in Turkey and the first stop is the local wedding office then on to Izmir police station, then British Embassy to get the affidavit translated (in my case). when you have been to the first place they usually direct you to where you need to go next and what needs to be done.
