Obtaining a Tax ID Number

Obtaining a tax number will help you with your various official proceedings such as opening a bank account with certain banks and getting health insurance. Since various administrative procedures require you to submit an official number, a tax id number can be used to perform such procedural steps before you have received your residence permit.
You can get a tax number through https://ivd.gib.gov.tr.  Please select “Doğrulamalar” on the menu and click “Yabancılar için potansiyel vergi kimlik numarası/ Potential Tax Number Confirmation for Foreigners” and fill out the form.
You can complete this step online or you can go to the nearest tax office in person.
