Turkey is a dynamic country with – in marked contrast to the EU – a young population. The last thing it needs is the 48-hour week, the Common Agricultural Policy, the euro and the rest of the apparatus of Brussels corporatism. Why tie yourself to a shrinking part of the world economy when you have teeming new markets to your east? Why submit to rule by people who barely trouble to hide their contempt for you?

The visa change will affect hundreds of people with property in Turkey who prefer to do a visa run every 90 days to renew their tourist visa. The changes, which came about on July 14, mean tourists will be able to stay in the country for 90 days every 180 days.
Voices is reporting that British embassy officials will meet with the Turkish Foreign Ministry to find out why the change has taken place - especially as they had no warning that changes were at hand.
Residents are now faced with the prospect of buying expensive residence visas.

For both of us, retirement in Kalkan has brought new opportunities and lots of new friends. There are so many things we love about living in Kalkan that I don’t know where to begin! We love living by the Med, the friendly people, the warm climate, the history that’s all around you, the excellent food, the relaxed atmosphere and the wonderful social life. We’re fortunate to have a number of Turkish friends and we do try to get involved in the local Turkish community as well as the expat network.

So, as a foreign buyer, what should you do?
- Take the risk and buy exchange property, which is cheaper than Pre 74 Turkish title property;
- Take no risks and purchase pre 74 Turkish Title property in North Cyprus; property and land that always were in the hands of Turkish Cypriots prior to 1974, basically Turkish titles issued prior to 1974;
- Move your focus some 40 miles to the north of Cyprus and look at Turkish coastline, which incidentally is more beautiful and lot more colourful. Property in Turkey is still a great bet for investment, permanent and holiday homes.
