III- NOTIFICATION TO A TURKISH NATIONAL IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY :

The notification procedure can be done through our foreign Embassies and Consulates based on the provisions of the Law on Notifications with the number 7201:
According to the 25th Article of the Law of Notifications; a notification to a Turkish national living abroad can be done by the Turkish politicial officer or the Consul. Through this way, only Turkish nationals can be notified.

Identification of our Nationals’ Addresses and Turkish Diplomatic Missions Abroad :    
One can access to the addresses of our nationals living abroad through a query on UYAP. However, in the countries where we have more than one mission, this systemn does not indicate the information where the sought address lies in which scope of responsibility. Technical operations are ongoing regarding this issue and they will come to an end soon.

Until the aforementioned study finishes, you can access to the authorized mission in the region by comparing the postcodes appearing in the list of our diplomatic missions abroad and the postcode of the relevant address. Our foreign missions are directing the documents that are aout of their jurisdiction to the authorised mission.

According to the annexed paragraph to the 25th Article of the Law of Notification dating 19.01.2011 with the number 6099, in the notification, the relevant documents are to be sent directly to our judicial authorities where the relevant Embassy or Consulate exists.

You can also access to the addresses and contact info of our foreign missions via www.mfa.gov.tr/yurtdisi-teskilati.tr.mfa web site.

The minutes of the notification drawn up by our foreign mission shall be directly sent to our judicial authorities:
Whether a notification to a Turkish national by the Turkish officials or the Consulate should be identified and then the relevant documents should be certified and be directly sent to the requesting authority.

The required documents must be sent in an envelope with notice papers:
For the Turkish nationals in a foreign country, regarding the notifications to be conveyed by the Turkish officials or the Consulate, the requested documents must be placed in an envelope with notice by the officials and be directly sent to the competent Turkish foreign authority together with an over-script.

According to the Law of Notifications, it is not required to translate those documents:
It is sufficient to draw up one set of notification documents in Turkish, no other language translation is requested. The serial number of identity, ID info and full address of the person must be written on the envelope.

A notification to a Turkish national by means of foreign judicial authorities is also acceptable:
Under the Article 25/a of the Notification Law, the easiest and quickest way of informing a Turkish national is through our foreign missions abroad. However, with some certain reasons, if this way does not work, then the other states’ authorities may be also used for notifying our nationals. This procedure is explained in the section with title “ Notification Procedure to a Foreigner in a Foreign Country” (See section II). In this case, the notification documents together with their translations, should be sent to our Ministry.
