SIM cards can be bought at train stations, stores, and airports in Turkey. To buy, present your foreign passport with the relevant border control stamps. The attendant will help you install and register the SIM card. To top up, buy cards or pay via the site. Local operators offer only prepaid plans that cost about 100-150 liras per month on average for 10-20 Gb and 1000-2000 minutes within the country. Calls to other regions are offered separately and cost about 5 liras per minute. Russian operators offer much more expensive roaming services. In most cases, travelers who are going to stay in Turkey for a long time choose not to use roaming.

Buy a Birka travel eSIM to always stay connected wherever you go. No need for local SIM cards or Wi-Fi hotspots.
