Your Mobile Phone in Turkey

Since June 15, 2012 in Turkey; there is a statutory provision on the registration of mobile devices obtained from abroad.

Use of mobile phones from abroad is only possible if the relevant device is registered with the local tax authorities.
In previous years, the period of registration was 30 days. This period is extended in July 2014 for 60 days. In other words, the mobile device must be registered at the Tax authorities within 2 months after customs entry.

An administrative amount of 131,50 TL is been charged for the registration with the tax authorities for march 2015.

If you have a Turkish ID, then the next step is to buy an e-devlet şifresi (a Turkish DigiD) at the local post office for 2 TL and register the IMEI number so that you can use your device within 24 hours. If you do not have a Turkish ID, then you can go to the appropriate subscriber registration center (AVEA Türkcell, Vodafone) to complete your registration.
