Post Offices

Postane is the post office in Turkish. To buy stamps, send your mail, fax or parcel, or to send and receive or change your money, don't forget this word. Turkish post and telephone offices are easily recognizable by their PTT and Türk Telekom signs. Major post offices in tourist areas are open 8.00 to 24.00, Monday to Saturday and 9.00 to 19.00 on Sundays. Small post offices have the same hours as government offices.

Poste-restante
Poste-restante letters should be addressed “Poste-restante” to Merkez Postanesi (the central post office) in the town of your choice. To submit an identification card when collecting your letter is satisfactory.

Other PTT services
It is possible to exchange money at some PTT branches at the current international exchange rate. International postal orders and travelers checks can also be exchanged.
An express postal service Acele Posta Servisi APS operates from Turkey to 72 other countries for letters, documents and small packages. Moreover for the philatelists PTT sometimes print stamps on special days and events.

Phone calls
The most economic way to telephone in Turkey is from a PTT telephone booth. Tokens in three sizes, for local, inter-city and international calls. Telephone cards also available. Can be purchased from all PTT offices.

Package Pickup
Although letters, magazines and small parcels are delivered to your home or office door by a postman, sometimes you have to visit Paket Posta (Small Package Post) directorate in Topkapı to pick up a small packet sent to you. Tipping your postman may save you from such a dreadful trip there. If you are not found at the address given a small yellow slip will arrive with your regular mail. Then you should go to Paket Posta office with this slip and your passport. Another person with a written authorization and a copy of your passport can also pick up the packet on your behalf. The most difficult part is finding its address. There is a small customs charge and a late charge for packages not picked up within the time specified.
