Turkish Customs On Moving Your
Effects to Turkey
If you are moving to live, work or retire to a property you have bought in Turkey and you are not a Turkish citizen, the following is believed to be as accurate as possible… Your used household goods and personal effects are permitted for import if they are for your own use, and they must arrive no more than two months before or six months after your passport is stamped for entry into Turkey.
The following is a non-exhaustive list of documents that you may need to present at customs to allow your goods to be cleared, depending on your circumstances (e.g.whether you’re moving in to take up permanent residence, whether you’re relocating to Turkey for employment.): –
1. Your passport (and potentially your partner and dependents’
passports (with valid entry stamps))
2. Residence Visa or Residence Permit
4. Work Permit (if applicable)
5. Application Letter (if you are in the process of applying for residence
or employment visas)
6. Inventory/ Bill of Lading (showing brand name and serial numbers of
electrical appliances and complete and detailed list of all items
7. Potentially a Letter of Guarantee from your Turkish employer
8. Letter authorising the removal company agent in Turkey to clear the
shipment if you’re not attending in person
For your own sake and that of your removal agent, don’t include the following in your shipment as they are considered to be restricted items: –
1. Food stuff
3. Tobacco products
5. Fax machines and telecommunications/satellite equipment
Note also that if you’re importing used electronic items they should not be in their original packing – even though you may have carefully saved it for future shipping purposes – because customs may well decide it’s brand new and that tax is payable on it. Furthermore the amount and number of electronic items and equipment that you have needs to be ‘realistic’ for the number of people moving in, otherwise it may look like you’re importing to sell.
1. Anything that may constitute a weapon and/or ammunition
2. Drugs and narcotics
3. Explosive items!
