Dear collective wisdom, if you can please enlighten me...
I will be arriving in Istanbul on the 7th of January to assume my position to a public university. I will obtain a working visa from the turkish consulate beforehand. The university will book an appointment to the police for the 8th of January or any day soon after that.
The questions that I have, and in which you can probably help, are:
1) Do I get a work permit and residence permit from the same place? In other words, is the appointment to the police enough for both actions?
2) When will I obtain the two permits (RP and WP)? Is it on the same day or will it take something like 100 days?
3) For work reasons, I need to travel from turkey to Athens on the 17th of January. If I have WP and RP in my hands then probably there is no problem. But what happens if I don't? Has anyone had any puzzle such as that?
Thank you in advance for all your answers!!
