Disadvantages of living in Türkiye

Disadvantages of living in Türkiye

One of the disadvantages of living in Türkiye can be the language problem. In general, except for the people of Istanbul and part of the Turkish society who are fluent in English, the majority of the Turkish population is not fluent in English. Therefore, in order to live in this country, it is necessary to learn the Turkish language so that you can communicate with the local people in your daily life.

In addition, in Turkey, the ability to communicate in English is very limited and in some cases impossible. This issue may cause problems for newcomers who are not fluent in Turkish, especially when interacting with government officials, public services, and in some tourist places where Turkish is spoken.

One of the other disadvantages of living in Turkey is the labor market situation for immigrants. Without special expertise, it is difficult for immigrants to find employment. Although Turkey is attractive for foreign investors, even those born in Turkey are not satisfied with the work situation in this country, so it is recommended that if you want to live in Turkey, try to work as an entrepreneur to benefit from government support.

Another disadvantage of living in Türkiye is the paperwork. To pursue some issues, people may wait for many hours in the offices of this country and fill out many forms. Also, many officials of these departments are not familiar with English and only speak Turkish.

The high cost of fuel in Turkey is another disadvantage of living in this country. Also, in some areas, there is no nationwide gas supply and people may use other methods to set up the heating system.

The cost of buying cars, industrial equipment, etc. is also relatively high in Turkey due to the heavy taxes imposed on some goods.

The large population of Turkey has caused that in big cities like Istanbul, the streets are always crowded and people cannot reach their destinations easily.

For this reason, it is recommended to use public transportation such as subway, taxi, etc. in these cities

The dangers of living in Türkiye

The problems of living in Turkey for Iranians depend on many factors, including learning the Turkish language, some high costs of living, abuse of immigrants by fraudsters, etc.

In addition to the mentioned cases, there are other problems for Iranians living in Turkey. For example, one of the main problems is the lack of correct information about the rules and regulations of immigration to Turkey.

Before entering Turkey, many Iranians face problems such as the right visa, choosing the right city to stay, finding the right job, etc., due to the lack of sufficient information.

To carry out economic activities in Turkey, various licenses and permits are needed, otherwise your financial activities will not be legal. Therefore, people who immigrated to Turkey and intend to generate income should be aware of Turkish financial laws and regulations and conduct their activities in compliance with these regulations.

Failure to comply with Turkish financial laws can lead to problems such as financial sanctions, high fines, and even discrimination against individuals. Some illegal immigrants who have not legalized their financial activities can face problems such as unresolved legal issues, deportation and higher fines. Therefore, to create financial stability in life in Turkey, it is important that people have sufficient knowledge about Turkish financial laws and conduct their activities in accordance with these laws.
