I am an exchange university student and I will stay in Turkey for 5 months, is it possible for me to get a local bank account which provides me an ATM card and allows me to use wire transfer to send me money from my hometown (hong kong)?

If that's not possible, what is the best way to finance my living in Turkey besides bringing lots of cash? Thanks!

Hello fei, welcome to Turkey,

You can get a local bank account. They can give u an atm card. I suggest you Garanti Bank or Is Bankasi because they have a lot of atm, easy to find and easy to use.

By the way, if you need any professional expat service pls visit www (dot) expaturk (dot) com.

Thanks for the reply, may I know what it takes for the application of the account? Cos I will get my residence permit in March (the soonest) but I will be in Turkey in early February.
