When sending money to Turkey, keep in mind that different tax regulations may apply to sending large sums of money overseas depending on many factors including:
how the money is going to be used
how much you are sending
the source of the funds
if the money has been taxed elsewhere
For example, supporting family members by paying for living expenses is usually considered different from sending large sums of money abroad as a gift. See our Guide to Sending Money to Family Abroad for more details.
How to send money to Turkey at a great exchange rate
When looking at exchange rates, it’s important to know that the Turkish lira (TRY) follows a floating exchange rate system, with supply and demand within the market helping to determine the currency’s value. International developments, economic fundamentals, and monetary policies are also influencers. If you want to read up on the factors that influence the value of the TRY or other currencies, head over to the Exchange Rates section of our site.
