Foreign Citizens Advice Centre  -  Free, Independent and Confidential Advice

Who are we?

What is the role of The Advice Centre?

Established in 2005 and the only one of its kind in the country, The Foreign Citizens Advice Centre has been set up to assist qualifying foreign nationals with a comprehensive range of free advice and support. We can simply point you in the right direction or, if you prefer, guide you every step of the way.

Free advice

Do I qualify for free advice and support?

In general terms, if you hold a valid passport from any country other than Turkey then you are considered to be a foreign citizen for the purposes of obtaining the full range of services of The Citizens Advice Centre free of charge. Check with one of our advisers for our up to date terms and conditions.

Paying for the service

How is The Advice Centre funded?

Similar to Citizens Advice Centres in Western Europe, we receive support from the government in the form of tax relief. Our day-to-day running costs are met by charitable donations from local businesses and residents. To keep personnel costs down, our dedicated staff give some of their time as volunteers.

Making your money work for you.

Investing requires individual advice tailored to the investor's requirements and aversion to risk. Talk to an adviser to understand the best way to make your money work for you in this vibrant economy.
