For this reason, non-Turkish citizens who want to give a power of attorney can make an appointment through a translator of their choice from the sworn translator list prepared by the Turkish Consulate.
This translator will arrange an appointment for you at the notary service of the Turkish consulate and support you by making the necessary translations on the day of your appointment.
