Turkey: Additional information required for registration of an existing national ID Number for Turkish individuals - update


Further to our Announcement A19023 concerning the new requirement of providing the mobile number of Turkish individuals, when submitting a request for registration of an existing national ID Number, Clearstream Banking1 would like to inform customers that effective


this information is no longer mandatory.

The mobile number of Turkish individuals was previously requested by the MKK (the central securities depository of Turkey). However, in order to avoid any delays in the registration and account opening process, the MKK has revised its requirement and made the mobile number of Turkish individuals optional.

Clearstream Banking has updated its documentation accordingly.
