Open an account in the Republic of Turkey - COREDO


The favourable geographical location, diversified and fast-growing economy, and policy of attracting foreign investment have already made Turkey an attractive location for business. It has a stable legal system and well-developed financial sector, in particular the banking sector, which accounts for more than 80% of the financial sector. These features, combined with a sophisticated taxation policy, make Turkey an attractive destination for bank accounts.

Opening bank accounts in Turkey

At present, about 50 banking institutions operate in Turkey. Turkish banks are loyal to foreign business. There’s also no excessive control or bureaucracy on the part of the authorities. That is why Turkey is an excellent alternative to popular jurisdictions and also one of the main options for opening an account for a foreign company or individual. The most widely known banks in this country are Garanti Bankasi, Yapi Kredi Bankasi, Deutsche Bank, Is Bankasi, Citibank, Ziraat Bankasi, Turkiye Finans, Kuveyt Turk, Vakif, DenizBank and Isbank.


The main advantages of Turkish banks include the following:

  • possibility of opening accounts in Euros, US Dollars and Turkish Liras;
  • many banks have the possibility to render services in Russian language if needed;
  • favourable tariffs;
  • loyal attitude to non-residents;
  • possibility of granting loans to foreign citizens;
  • loyalty to high risks, but solutions on these issues are purely individual and far from being easy to implement.


Turkish banks always welcome transparency, so it is not surprising that they ask for details on financial activity, including the origin of funds, which is accepted as the rule and any non-resident should be prepared for such questions.
