Foreign exchange office decision from the Ministry! Identity statement will be mandatory

According to the communiqué published in the Official Gazette, a change was made in the regulation that obliges identification in foreign exchange trading. Thus, an identity statement of $100 or more will be required.

Customers were asked for their identification number, passport number or tax number in foreign exchange buying and selling.

Thus, those who made transactions were recorded without any limit.
