In most warm countries in Europe, foreigners cannot stay in the country for more than a few months, and obtaining a residence permit is more difficult. What can we say about particularly stringent rules, for example, in Thailand, where not everyone is given a residence permit or an annual visa, and a monthly visa needs to be “refreshed” every month, and travel to Malaysia or Laos. Moreover, not the fact that you are allowed to return! In Turkey, there is a wonderful opportunity to apply for a residence permit for the whole family simply under a lease for the whole year! And immediately for 2 years in case of buying an apartment. It is simple, inexpensive and removes all issues with visas, as a residence permit can be renewed every year. Well, after 5 years of permanent residence, you can apply for citizenship.
Turkey has a very favorable and attractive geographical location. And Russia, and Europe, and Asia are nearby, several hours of summer. We fly to Moscow 3 hours 15 minutes, to Paris 3 hours 40 minutes, to Dubai about 4 hours, to Rome only 2.5 hours, and generally 1.5 hours to Cyprus. Not to mention that there are unlimited travel possibilities within the country, and flights by local airlines are inexpensive.
Turkey is a very picturesque country with a luxurious and diverse nature. Mountains and the sea give breathtaking scenery and provide a special, clean, oxygen-filled air. A Mediterranean subtropical climate – gives a riot of blooming greenery, and, almost, year-round harvest. The country is washed by four seas: Black, Mediterranean, Aegean and Marmara. Beautiful places and tourist destinations can not be counted. There are even ski resorts and their own Disneyland – Land of Legend Park.
The quality of life in Turkey is dramatically higher than in Russia. The most comfortable climate and 300 sunny days a year! The beach season on the south coast lasts more than six months. At the same time, the weather here is varied – in the summer, swim and warm up, enjoy the coolness in winter. Beautiful landscapes and aesthetic architecture, clean streets and friendliness of residents create a pleasant atmosphere. Ecology in resort towns has been trembling for centuries, in many there have never been and never will appear any industrial objects, and this is enshrined in laws. Of course, living in such quality environmental conditions is useful not only for adults, but also for children and the elderly.
The standard of living can be maintained at a high level – prices for utilities, food, clothing and shoes are much lower than in Russia. Farmer markets operate all year round – where it is profitable and pleasant to purchase fresh natural fruits and vegetables, herbs, nuts, cheeses, olives and olive oil. Prices for daily groceries in supermarkets at first look unrealistic. 15 rubles for the freshest flavored bread and 25 rubles per liter of milk at first seems fantastic, but you quickly get used to it. Electricity, water, and house maintenance bills also compare favorably with Russian communal realities. For example, a family of 3 people for an apartment of 130 m2 in the coastal region of Alanya pays per month an average of only 3.5 thousand rubles. Therefore, life here is quite accessible not only to immigrants from European countries and moneybags, but even to ordinary Russian pensioners.
