Preparing for an Istanbul Move

It takes lots of strategic planning to make an international move to Istanbul. One of the first things you need to do is hire a reliable, licensed, international moving service. Three Movers has worked with international as well as domestic moving for many years, and we know the most economical ways to get you packed and safely moved.

Visa and Passport

You need a U.S. Passport to enter Turkey from the United States. You will also need to apply for a visa. A work visa and a residency permit may be required for a move to Istanbul from the United States. This is of course dependent on your personal situation.


It’s important to have your banking in order before you try to move. In most cases, it is a good idea to have at least $10,000 USD or more saved before the move. If you already have a home or family waiting during your move, having a large savings may not be required.


Before you start to toss things in boxes or bags, take time to downsize. Moving overseas is expensive and downsizing will lighten the load and can help cut expenses. Not all movers can manage an international move, and some only work with moves to specific countries.

Auto Transport

Having a car to drive is a great asset, especially since public transit can be remarkably busy with the number of people that use it daily. You will need to pay a fee and will be required to have certain legal documentation to bring a car into the country from the U.S. These include:

  • Residence permit (work permit, study permit)
  • Passport
  • Valid driving license
  • Proof of ownership (purchase invoice, registration)
  • Insurance policy in Turkey
