I do not have a Turkish bank account, but now need one!!
Can I open it from my home country before coming to Turkey? I need internet banking.
Are there HSBC branches in Istanbul?
As far as I know, you can not open an Internet Account from your country. Because the local branch will demand some documents (id etc)
If you can access your accounts from any ATM or Branch in istanbul, then it is possible!
There are lots of HSBC branches and other international banks such as citi, ING etc
