  1. I have a residency card that expires on Feb 5th. And currently waiting for my interview date to change the address, The process will almost certainly end after August 5th. Which means I'll have a residence card that expires in less than 6 months. How do I apply for a work permit in this situation? My future employer tried to apply for me, but my address isn't showing up in their online portal. I asked one of those private offices that help with that process, and they told me, I can still apply in the Turkish embassy back home, even if I'm a resident of Turkey.
  2. Application and Required Documents You can apply for a work permit if you have been living in Turkey, with a residence permit, for at least six months. You must have a job offer or contract from an employer first. Both you and your employer must apply to the Çalışma ve Sosyal Güvenlik Bakanlığı (Ministry of Labor and Social Security) for most work permits. To work with a university, you must both apply to the Yüksek Öğretim Kurulu (Council of Higher Education, or YÖK). Both of the applications must be made within six business days of each other. As the employee, you will generally nee
  3. If you have a long-term residence permit (which requires a minimum of eight years of uninterrupted residence in Turkey), or if you have worked in Turkey for at least five years, without interruption, you may apply for an unlimited work permit. The unlimited work permit never expires, and you can change employers without having to apply for a new work permit. You will enjoy the same rights as a holder of a long-term residence permit. My Take on This: While the law says you can get an unlimited work permit after living in Turkey for eight years without having a long-term residence permit (w

  6. Please help! I moved to Istanbul in 2014 with my American passport, and started working as an English teacher. I received my residence permit and then in 2017 I received a work permit.

  7. The limited-time work permit is the type of permit most foreigners get. After receiving a job offer from a Turkish company while either inside Turkey or outside of Turkey. If inside Turkey, an application is made directly to the Çalışma ve Sosyal Güvenlik Bakanlığı (Ministry of Labor and Social Security, or CSGB), by both the employer and the job applicant.

It is called a limited-time wor
  8. Independent work permits are also called "entrepreneurial work permits." If you have been living in Turkey for at least five years without interruption, and want to start a Turkish company, you can get a work permit as an entrepreneur. This involves making an application to the Çalışma ve Sosyal Güvenlik Bakanlığı (Ministry of Labor and Social Security). If they are convinced that your company can provide jobs or help the economy, they will grant a "Certificate of Application for Independent Work Permit." This is valid for six months, which gives you time to set up your company. Once the compa
  9. I am getting a work permit. Will I also need a residence permit? No. Your work permit will also serve as your residence permit. What fees are involved in getting a work permit? You have to pay a residence permit fee, and a work permit fee. These amounts depend on the type of work permit you are applying for, and your home country. A good employer will usually pay these fees for you. Are there situations where I would not need a work permit? Yes. If you are visiting Turkey to establish business connections, and while doing so you are not being paid by a Turkish company or
  10. To work in Turkey, you must have a work permit. Most work permits are issued by the Çalışma ve Sosyal Güvenlik Bakanlığı (Ministry of Labor and Social Security).

  14. I've been living here in Turkey for around 10 months now, I have a 2 year residence permit and bought a house after getting my permit. After setting up a private company here with the intention of doing business, expenses have mounted tremendously and my savings have certainly dwindled. I searched about this but couldn't find a clear answer and I feel that very often even when asking a government official, they don't have an answer (plus my Turkish is not so fun to interact with). Can I apply for a job and get a work permit without having to change my residence permit? I feel it will be a

I am a US Citizen and own a small technology consulting company.

  18. My question, precisely, in a case that an online business is opened and products will be destined to Export ; so it will not be destined to the Turkish Market and money will be received in Turkey as the Residence will be there.

  19. If you want to come to Turkey for work, you must first have a job offer letter or a contract from an employer in Turkey. Once you have that, go to a Turkish embassy or consulate in your home country (or the country where you legally reside) and apply for a work visa. The whole process involves three basic steps.

  20. Hi I am looking for a bit of help. So I came to Turkey in 2012. I got my first rp and then my second one with no problems. on my 3rd rp I got caught in the new system and had a 2 day overstay. the police at the station told me to just go to Bulgaria for 24 hours and then come back and do the new appointment within 10 days. so off I went. I had a fine of 400 lira for just 2 days. I have heard that it depends on the mood of the people for the amount. there was a kid in front of me who had stayed 2 months and got the same amount. maybe the difference was that I wanted to come back and he w
  21. My residence permit was due for renewal in July. However, I have a work permit card up to December and thought that this would suffice as an RP. My job finished in August and the school would then have had to cancel the work permit. I recently tried to renew my RP and was told by an official in Izmir that I can't renew it. She said I should leave the country and upon returning get an e visa and then apply for the first time. Does anyone have any suggestions or know of someone who was in a similar situation?

  23. If I know of a Turkish person who has a company and they'd be willing to get me a work permit as a favor, how hard would it be for them to get the work permit and for them to maintain it for 3 years so I can get Turkish citizenship at the end? What kind of hassle would there be for that person because I may or may not actually work for them, but on paper I would be their employee for 3 years. It's just a hypothetical question of course!
