Sell on Etsy as a foreigner in Turkey

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Dear friends,

I am planning to relocate in Turkey. 

As a job, I am going to sell some painting on Etsy. Since I will have a tourist visa for living in Turkey, Do I need to have a work permit?

I won't sell anything to Turks, I mean all my sells will be to other countries. Then I will deposit my money from my Turkish bank account. 

What are your thoughts?

From talking to the Ministry of Family, Labor, and Social Services, you don't meet the criteria for "working in Turkey." However I assume you'll be buying supplies from Turkish companies, so I don't know if that fits the definition or not. I doubt it, but to be sure you can call them.  their helpline is at 170. From outside of Turkey, call +90 216 170 1122. It has an English option.
