Rules you MUST remember in Turkiye

It’s a legal requirement to carry some form of photographic ID at all times – like your Passport or a Full UK Driving Licence – while in Turkiye and in busy areas the Turkish authorities may stop members of the public to conduct ID checks. It’s an offence to insult the Turkish nation or the national flag, or to deface national currency (e.g. writing on the notes) and you could face imprisonment if convicted of these offences – this includes comments made on social media.

Be careful if you’re been browsing markets in Turkey and buying souvenirs as its illegal to export some historical items which can be found at local markets. You should confirm the legal requirements before purchasing or returning home with an antique or historical item.
