One more government resolution which shows the loyalty to foreigners was announced in October in Turkey. The regulation concerns the extension of the period one can use foreign mobile phone from 60 to 120 days. The country's government shows flexibility to the foreigners who come to Turkey to have treatment in local medical centers, to travel on business or to buy property in Turkey and stay there for a long period.
After 120 days the owner of the mobile phone must register it. Otherwise, the device will be blocked.
It is worth reminding when entering the country you need to insert a Turkish sim-card. The local mobile phone operators will record your device and after the 120-day period you will have to pay 40-dollar tax and register your mobile phone. In other case, the mobile phone will be blocked by the Turkish mobile phone operators. It is a measure against grey import.
