7) Paul Grimen - Istanbul

s1: Driving License, Residence permit & Insurance

my name is paul grimen, norwegian citizen residing in turkey since mid-2012. to be an expat living in turkey, there are many things that is difficult, especially since one does not speak the language and english is not a language working very well in turkey. therefore, as new in turkey one is much dependent on people you know, that can assist or to find someone that can help you in matters like visa, licenses etc, etc. in 2016, a new law came into effect, all foreigner staying in turkey longer that 6 month must obtain turkish driving licenses. sounds easy, however, it’s not, if on your own. i contacted yellali, mrs. carla oates and asked if they could help and assist with this work. she was more than helpful and put me in contact with her assistance in istanbul miss. ayse ergen, to handle this case for my wife and myself. we had a short meeting with ayse in istanbul were she informed us about the procedure and the needed papers we had to provide. after we had provided her with those, the rest was handled by ayse, very efficient and professionally. she took care of everything, we were just sitting back, relaxing and waiting for her call to complete the process. we have now received the two new turkish driving licenses and i must say i’m very impressed of the work ayse did for us, bearing in mind it’s a lot of offices to visit and lot of paperwork to complete, needing translation, notary and you name it. therefore, based on my experience with yellali and the two ladies mention above, i can fully recommend yellali and the two ladies to any expat coming to turkey if they need assistance in such matters as yellali provide. i will not hesitate a second to contact either one if i need more assistance in the future. thanks again carla and ayse, it’s been a pleasure working with you both. thanks again for your professional service representing yellali and your personal help, very much appreciated…………..

s1: Residence Permit Insurance

yellali which means call ali when you need. i have meet this insurance website when i was in italy planning my internship trip to turkey and after came to turkey i was asked to have id number to buy the insurance , as i don`t know turkish very well, the process of appliying residence permit became a little bit challenging as need to pay the tax and so on . but the insurance service turn out to be one of the best i saw in any other place in the world . i just wrote the email to ask and the respond from mrs carla was very fast. there is a quick call with "funny" british accent(i love british accent ), reply email on the road, also even at home. and all has been very smooth and friendly. it is out of my expectation from turkey after all the inconveniences i met in turkey. so i would defenitly give a full score to yell ali`s customer service and also will recommend all my foreign friends who are coming to turkey for study or visit. buon viagio a turkia

18) Kenny igbalajobi - Istanbul

s1: Residence Permit

so i found yeli ali on the internet, i was skeptical due to the fact that i wasn't familiar with the services they offer, but i decided to give them a chance and i had a wonderful experience using yeli ali , they were punctual. i'll advise foreigners who want their situation sorted out stress free , to use their services, as you know the turkish system for certain issues concerning foreigners could be stressful. all the best.

this year 2015 the form for the renewal of residency proved difficult to complete mainly due to there on line being two. i sort the help of yellali and the lady there was most help full and due to this i was able to send off and received no come back or problems from the emigration department here in antalya. yellali fee was very reasonable and i was impressed with the follow up. i recommend the yellali service.

24) Sally McDonald ISTANBUL

s1: Residence Permit

i would like to thank you (and dicle at groupama) for making this health insurance task very quick and easy. being able to get such a swift initial response and quote was fabulous. being able to read the documents in english and speak with an english speaker was also great. the response time to my questions was much appreciated and of course finalising my insurance in less than 24 hours, a weight off my mind.

25) Lianne Curry (Kiwi N Turkey) IZMIR

s1: Residence Permit

yes, totally happy with process and contact from groupama. as an aside, i would like to extend a big thanks to all those people who make yellali such an informative and helpful website. i am so thankful someone directed me to your website. i have since passed yellali website information onto other foreigners i have met. to have information direct from sources first hand, all requirements noted, so much better than how we foreigners used to operate! word of mouth, a little this, a little that, some right, some wrong! thank you and keep up the good work. best regards

26) Karen Middleton - MUGLA

s1: Residence Permit

i was very happy with the service and the way the whole thing was handled. i would have one comment: when i received the email containing the proposal there were no instructions telling me what to do next. i awaited a phone call which did not arrive. i finally emailed you back and a young lady called melanie replied and from that point on the service was excellent. i would suggest including a clear instruction on that email. all in all thank you for a brilliant service.
