Let’s Talk Brexit – What Does It Mean For British Expats In Turkey?

14th June 2016

There’s a lot of talk about Brexit in the UK at the moment but what does it mean for expats? Well for British expats in Turkey not much at the moment really. Since Turkey isn’t an EU member presently whatever happens after the 23rd June when the UK holds its referendum British expats in Turkey can rest assured that they won’t be affected in any way.

Of course this isn’t the case for British expats currently residing in EU countries like Germany or Spain. Although what the full effects of the UK leaving Europe would be for those expats is still unknown at this point, although a raise in taxes could be a very real risk.

But thankfully for you British expats in Turkey it’s not something you need to worry about. And ironically if the UK does vote to leave the EU then will likely have to join the EU customs union like Turkey in order to be able to access the EU’s internal market and have free movement of goods.

Of course there’s no way of knowing whether the UK would be granted permission to join though so it’s still all up in the air and a bit of an unknown at this point. But one thing we can say is that at this point is doesn't look like expats in Turkey will be affected.
It’s just one more reason to be happy you decided to move to Turkey and not another country.
