  • The document proving the sale of the currency given by the buying bank should include the personal information of the person concerned, his name, surname, passport number, or the foreigner’s identification number issued by the Turkish Republic, in addition to the value of the currency sold in US dollars, indicating that this amount of currency was sold according to Article 13 of the Circular on Capital Movement issued by the Central Bank of Turkey, entitled "Real Estate Appraisal".
