That's a question you should ask your local customs office. don't worry they are friendly people and will be happy to answer your question.
From my personal experience, Meats, Fruits and other food items are NOT allowed to be brought into a foreign country. BUT pls check with the customs office just to be sure.

meat products might be problem.. Because they will smell bad during the travel and even you ll not able to eat them.... Customs are al over the world really checking those meat type of products very carefully.. You can buy from Turkey whatever you look for and also very high standarts...

Like taking turkey to England?
The Turkish Consulate web site in London says this about it :

TURKEY'S CUSTOMS REGULATION:
Information on Turkish Customs Regulation is available at the the official website of Turkish Customs Administration on http://www.gumruk.gov.tr You can also call the following telephone numbers: Tel: 0090 312 3117971, Fax: 0090 312 3245979 e-mail: bis@gumruk.gov.tr

Looking at the web site and turning to the pages in English I can gain absoluely no idea.

Looking at the British Border Agency web site, I can quickly see what is expected when returning to UK from Turkey. Certainly as Turkey is outside the EEC where separate rules apply, there are restrictions on many goods coming into UK. Meat is certainly not allowed. So on a tit for tat, quid pro quo basis, I suppose a Turkish customs official could have a similar rule the other way?
This web site gives an opportunity to see exactly what can be imported into UK.

Re: Food restrictions entering Turkey?

by Potato-Brigade

I´ve travelled many times to Turkey and bringing in food is never an issue. But you say that you "land" in Istamboul. So you arrive by airpane? Airports are always a different sort of experience, one I´ve never had in Turkey. I always travel by land. Anyway, I feel certain that if the quantity of food you´re taking is for yourself or possibly a gift, then I doubt you´ll have problems. If, on the other hand, you´ve got a couple of tons of meat you can expect lots, and lots of trouble. Naturally, in any case at all if you want to know the OFFICIAL LINE contact the authorities as the above poster suggests. But keep in mind if you´ve got a small amount and OFFICICAL LINE is that you may not bring it in, I advise you to ignor them and try it anyway. The OFFICIAL LINE is often BS.

Hi.
No problem, Turkey is not a prohibitionist country.

Re: Food restrictions entering Turkey?

For sure you are not allowed to import kilos of meat, but just a sausage for your personnal pleasure is for sure not a problem. Anyway you will not see customs ;-)
Turkish are not paranoid, as australian or US are, they just take care seriously of their safety, not stupidly.
Wellcome in Turkey.

Travel Tips for Istanbul

Golden Horn

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

The Golden Horn is an inlet of the Bosphorus dividing the city of Istanbul and forming a natural harbor.
It forms a deep natural harbor for the peninsula it encloses together with the Sea of Marmara.

You can watch my 3 min 07 sec HQ Video Istanbul Galata Tower View at the Bosphorus and the Golden Horn part I Turkish Gambit out of my Youtube channel with the music out of the Russian movie “Turkish Gambit” – by Maxim Pokrovsky – “We’re going to the Orient”.

You can watch my 4 min 01 sec HQ Video Istanbul Galata Tower View at the Bosphorus and the Golden Horn part II Turkish March out of my Youtube channel with Turkish March - Rondo Alla Turca by Mozart.

ou may watch my high resolution photo of Istanbul on the Google Earth according to the following coordinates 41° 0' 41.67" N 29° 0' 43.73" E or on my Google Earth Panoramio Bosphorus and Golden Horn.

Turquoise

by Erkmen

A Nation that gives a name to a color..

Turquoise is a term to express the name of a color, and it comes from the Turkish blue... So in general what is Turkish blue..

Our roots came from Asia, where all the dome of the buildings have Turkish blue.. And now we live in the Turquoise blue waters of Bosphorus..

When you are in Istanbul, you may have the chance to see the color Change in the Bosphorus and sometimes it looks exactly Turquoise.. And it is the greatest blue for us..

Dress conservatively. It's...

by grrl_travel

Dress conservatively. It's not that all women in Turkey wear chadors (full black with veil), but you'll get hassled a lot less if you are wearing pants or a conservative skirt. If you go into a mosque (as a woman) make sure to cover your head, and ideally put on long sleeves. It's just respect. You can buy head scarves for cheap outside of larger mosques, or you can borrow one. People do dress up in miniskirts, etc for clubs, but if you are traveling alone and are out at night, I'd stick with nice pants.

Comodo Steps..Another Istanbul story.

by mehbos37

Istanbul used to be the home of many Italian families like Comodos..They came to Istanbul in early 1500s , became very powerful in banking in 1800s and left their hometown in 1920s...This is the Comodo Steps which were built by the family in 19th century.
Location: Bankalar Caddesi,Karakoy..Very close to Galata Tower.

Shopping Centers

by SamiGuzel about Akmerkez,Galleria, Migros, Capitol

These are Istanbul' s biggest and modern shopping centers. You can find everything ( like cinema, dance, toys, games and famous marks ) n them. But they are more expensive then bazaars. If u want to buy local things u must go to the bazaars. Don't forget, bargains s important everywhere...
