A noter, or notary, is often needed for official paperwork in Turkey even for minor issues such as passport translation because most official authorities only accept notarized translations of documents. As a tourist city, Antalya attracts foreigners coming from different countries such as Russia, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United Arab Emirates, etc. Foreign residents living in Antalya need to visit a local notary office, which can be found in every district in Antalya from Kaş to Alanya, for buying property, entering into a marriage, applying for a residence permit, making a working permit, obtaining Turkish citizenship and other official paperwork. Unlike many European countries, notaries in Turkey do not accept languages other than Turkish; therefore, these documents first need to be translated to Turkish before the notary stamp. However, it should not be forgotten that documents have to be translated by a sworn translator registered to the local notary office where the notary report is taken. In other words, to get a notarized copy of a passport, the passport first needs to be translated to Turkish by a sworn translator registered to the local notary office before stamped by a notary to be considered as a certified translation in Turkey. Notary fees are standard in every city and district of Turkey while translation fees may change from notary to notary and language to language. However, notary fees increase according to the number of pages and the length of the text to be notarized. Also, it should be noted that only romanized English characters of proper nouns are accepted for the Turkish translation of passports.
