You can have anything you want, with only a few exceptions, shipped to Turkey with ease. And in this day and age, you can find all the answers about packing requirements, destinations, and Customs information with the click of a mouse making it even easier.
Customs in Turkey
The value point that you would be charged duties in Turkey is set at 75 Euros, so about $100. This does change sometimes and is a soft limit so keep that in mind before you ship to Turkey. There are duty calculators on the Internet, such as on the UPS web site, that may be of great assistance in helpng you get a clearer picture of what you are going to be assessed as far as fees go. The average duty is set at 18% of the value of the items shipped as a point of reference.
Preparing your shipment to Turkey
Before you send your items to Turkey, you will want to double check that your shipment is allowed into the country. You can check their Customs' web site for a list of current prohibited or restricted items or you can check with your shipping company. This list will also inform you if you need any special paperwork or permits to send your package there as well.
Shipping destinations in Turkey
The major shipping destinations in Turkey are going to be larger cities: Adana, Ankara, Antalya, Dalaman, Istanbul and Izmir. Basically anything you ship to Turkey will be passing through one of these six main cities before being sent to its final destination. There are local shipping companies on the ground there that can take over the final leg of your parcel's journey if you choose to do it that way, but many find it easier to have one shipping company the entire way to keep it easy.
