Got a Residence Permit but now want a Work Permit

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, this is a great forum with great advice, a big thank you to everyone who posts on here!

In short 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 hassle to change the status for myself and my large family. I really doubt this can be easily pulled off, but does anyone have experience with getting a work permit after getting a residence permit and what was the process?

Thanks in advance, peace!

As far as I know. You can keep your current residence permit and also get a work permit.. Infact your children and wife will not get a work permit. It is only you as an individual.. If you own a property and got a residence permit it means you already have an investor residence permit.. It is a valuable asset since it allows you to apply for passport after 5 years but if you are an American citizen I do not think this must be an attraction to you. 

 

Anyway you can keep the current residence permit valid and get a work permit for yourself. I know people who are working on a work permit and also have a residence permit independant of work permit.


Good luck.
