Benefits, limitations, and tips for opening a foreign personal account in Turkey for non-residents
Turkey is a thriving market. Starting a local or international business here is a rewarding venture. No wonder, many foreigners grab the opportunity to obtain Turkish citizenship by investing in local real estate, open a company, and set up a corporate bank account.
Turkey attracts investors by geopolitical location and several economic advantages. They include a sound banking system. Besides, Turkey banks offer more reasonable tariffs, compared to other popular Middle East destinations (for example, in the UAE).
Benefits of opening a foreign personal account in Turkey:
- with our help, you can open it remotely
- Turkey and the Middle East is an attractive region for work and business
- the bank’s fees are lower than the fees charged in the UAE
- you can have accounts in EUR, US dollars, and other currencies.
However, the challenge is that only local residents can open foreign personal accounts in Turkey. This challenge, though, should not discourage you if you need a Turkish account but have no relation to this country so far. We can offer you a unique opportunity for opening a foreign personal account in Turkey remotely.
Please note our IMPORTANT tip: you can open a foreign personal account with the recommended Turkish bank remotely ONLY VIA A REPRESENTATIVE. Without a recommendation from a trusted intermediary, the banking institution will reject the application.
