TURKEY WORK PERMIT
Foreigners who wish to acquire a permit to work in Turkey can either obtain it while in the country or through the Turkish Consulates in their country of residence or citizenship. A proper application must be accompanied by a labour contract, an official document declaring company partnership, or a letter of assignment.
After approval by Turkey’s Ministry of Labour and Social Security, applicants located outside the country must enter the country within a period of 180 days after the date of work permit issuance. For applicants who are located within the country, holders of residence permits that are valid for at least 6 months can file work permit applications. Alternatively, their employers are also qualified to file work permit application on their behalf.
