  1. To work in Turkey, you must have a work permit. It's the employer who applies for the work permit, as you provide documents required for the application. In this article, I'll teach you how to get your first work permit while outside or inside Turkey, then cover other types of work permits you might apply for. I'll also cover the types of work permits available, the benefits of working in Turkey, and the restrictions you should know as you search for a job. What is a Work Visa? A work visa is a sticker issued by Turkish embassies and consulates. It's applied to one of the pages i
  2. Many foreigners get jobs in Turkey and travel to Turkey for work. Briefly, it works like this: Find a job in Turkey. Apply for the job. Get a job offer from the employer. Accept the job. Take the job offer or contract to a Turkish embassy to apply for a work visa. Pick up the work visa and travel to Turkey. Get your work permit from your employer and start working. While you're applying for your work visa, your employer, in Turkey, will be applying for your work permit. These two things happen at the same time. You'll be providing documents suc
  3. It's illegal to work in Turkey without a work permit. Some employers may hire you to work illegally, since they won't have to register you with the Sosyal Güvenlik Kurumu (Social Security Administration) or pay anything towards your healthcare, retirement, or other benefits. It's strictly a cash deal, paid after you provide your services. Your employer might not pay you at all. You'll be helpless to do anything about it, since you'll have no rights to assert. How You Can Get Caught There are three main ways you can get caught working illegally: A surprise inspection of yo
  4. This article is for those who will be applying for work in Turkey from outside Turkey.

  5. How is it possible for my wife and I to secure a job in Turkey?
  6. Hi! Does anyone here knows the process for applying for a work visa for a domestic helper coming from another country? My daughter is a Filipina architect married to a Turkish Pilot - they're based in Istanbul and are expecting their first baby in 2 months. They want to hire a helper from the Philippines. How long is the usual process for work visa application?
  7. Hello friends, I am applying for my work visa on Tuesday at the embassy in washington DC, and I have a few questions. With the school year fast approaching, my employer has recommended I apply for my work visa as 'coordinator'. I have no idea what this means, or how it might expedite the process, but due to time constraints, they are adamant I apply as 'coordinator'. Any one familiar with this distinction? I will have all the necessary documents from my employer before I go, but I'm wondering about not yet having my TEFL certificate; I am about a week or two from completing it.
  8. I've been looking at teaching in Turkey through the company 'teach to travel'. Their website says: 'You will have your Residency Permit applied for before you arrive in Turkey, however, you will need to pick it up from the bureau in Turkey within 90 days of your arrival. You will need to get a tourist visa at the Turkish airport when you arrive. You will pick up your residency permit after this. You will also be picking up your work permit in Turkey.' What I don't understand is why can't they put in the application for the Work Permit before I arrive in the country (the job starts m
  9. Hello everyone! I am a CELTA-certified, English BA-holding qualified teacher currently living and teaching in Vietnam. I am looking to move to Izmir in two months, but have had trouble finding many job prospects online. I've read the forum threads and people seem pretty confident about being able to find work in Turkey/Izmir. What I would like to know is: If I move to Izmir without a concrete job, how possible would it be to secure one (one which would pay for and support a work visa, at that) once I arrive? I have no problem going to Izmir without a job, but would need to know tha
  10. Hi Everyone, This board looks like a great place to learn about Turkey, I'm so glad I came across it. I have a few questions about Teaching English in Turkey and was hoping someone here might have been in a similar situation, or know the ins and outs of the Turkish system. A little about myself: I am a Canadian. I have a BA in English Lit and History. I have a TESOL certificate. I have 4 years teaching experience. (1 year teaching K-12 in South Korea, and 3 years in Germany teaching adults business and conversation English) I currently live and teach in Germa
  11. My husband and I are planning to move to Turkey in the near future. I have a couple of job offers as an English teacher, so I'm not worried about myself, but my husband, who wants to because CELTA certified, does not have a university degree (he dropped out after two years and has been working full time in the finance sector for a decade now). Will it be impossible for him to find a job, even with a CELTA, without a university degree? What about non-teaching jobs? I've been told it's possible, but I haven't seen any concrete information.
