I am writing this on the assumption that there is some truth behind every joke...

Not that I am dying to visit the UK myself but aren´t you aware the world is cramming with people from the US, Germany and England? For example, English schools here are full of teachers who hold no licenses, there may be more Russians than there are Turks in Antalya and this is not only true for Turkey. Either through invasion or through other reasons, there are more citizens of aforementioned countries all around the world than the entire population of Turks.

 Can´t talk for the UK, but if people have good business plans, diplomas and experience than why not? To me they are welcome in my country. 

 

And besides the reason of business I still find it unfair that I can travel almost everywhere without (too much) harassment and Turks (e.g.) who want to go on just a holiday need loads of papers and proof they´ll return. It withholds me from inviting friends to come over. If I should want to invite a friend from Turkey for let´s say a week, I need to plan that 6-12 months (!!) upfront, have to prove myself I´m financial ok, I have to sign papers that I´m responsible for them - also in financial way, etc. etc. That doesn´t smoothen an invitation.

not just businessmen but all the Turkish citizens have "the right" to get in the EU countries without a visa but this right is well violated by the european countries without much resitance from Turkey at least until recently.

 I was referring to the resent influx of Turks to Houston.  There are currently about 15 thousand.  For my husband and I, it is a wonderful thing.  There are many Turkish restaurants, shops, festivals, organizations right in our local area.  We even have a consulate which makes doing paperwork very easy and convenient.  Of course, since I have been married to a Turk, I notice all things Turkish.  They were probably always there, but I just notice them more.  Perhaps for this reason, it seems like an invasion.<img src='/static/images/smileys//lol.gif' alt='lol'> (fast)

 I see. It is interesting that there should be an influx of Turks when the US economy is going through an economic crisis. One reason pops up in my mind is the statistical find indicating an uneven distribution of ethnicities in the US. There are so many people from certain ethnic backgrounds and too few from others. That is why there is a lottery system in place (as far as I know) that favours nations having smaller communities in the country a.k.a The Green Card System.

 

A while ago I watched a documentary (shot by some US TV) on Turkish minorities in the US cities. It was  claimed that Turkish communities are small and isolated groups with minimal contact with the rest of the society. The documentary also claimed that other minorities (like the Chinese) were threatening security in New York´s Turkish quarter.

 

I have a weird idea that being able to travel around the world must be one of the basic freedoms. There must of course be certain limitations in this. An active society restlessly traveling from one place to another in pursuit of adventure, business and you name what can produce much more compared to a stagnant society where there are restrictions of all sorts at the gates. This has what fueled the immense growth of the US economy since its foundation.

I think Turks need a visa for most (if not all) EU countries, just like we do when visiting Turkey. The unfair difference is that we can obtain visa at the airport while it´s not so easy for Turks. I wish things were easier for them, they´d see that Europe is not as bad as they imagine.

 

I don´t see many Turks around here, it´s a pity as I wouldn´t mind a Turkish bakery nearby

Only the EU and US citizens have ´visa at the airport´ convenience in Turkey. Turks are not so benevolent and lovely to take anybody to their country, because they love diversity. They only give easy visas to people who they believe will spend in Turkey and improve their economy.

I doubt that they would take a person whom they know that the government will have to support and who will only contribute to more social problems that the country can already barely handle.
