Work Permit Applications in Turkey

Applications for work permit are made through e-Government portal of Turkey (https://ecalismaizni.ailevecalisma.gov.tr). The automated work permit application system enables the users to fill the online work permit application form and upload necessary documents into the system. Online application is made through the e-government portal.  Duly applications are finalized by the Ministry at most thirty days and once the decision is made, the ministry informs the applicant through e-mail. Foreigners residing outside the Turkey can make their work permit applications through the Turkish representative offices in their home countries. In the existence of residence permit valid for at least 6 months, foreigners residing in Turkey can make their applications directly to Ministry of Labor and Social Security.

1.FOREIGNERS RESIDING OUTSIDE OF TURKEY

Foreigners residing outside the Turkey are subject to apply for work permit from the representative offices of Turkey in their own countries. Pursuance to work permit application of foreigner, within 10 working days the employer should process the application online to the Ministry of Labor and Social Security in Turkey. Once the approval from the Ministry is granted, foreigners are required to apply for work visa to the Turkish representative office within 90 days.

As per new rules on residence permits, valid working permissions will be now used as residence permits as well. Thus work permit validity requirement of residence permit application within 30 days upon obtaining the work permit (for consulate applications 30 days was starting upon arrival of work permit holders) will be outlawed.  On the other hand the same as work permits, “Work Permit Exemption Certificates” will also be used as residence permits.

Foreigners with residence permit valid for at least 6 months may make their applications to the Ministry of Labor and Social Security internally. Internal applications are made by the employer directly to the Ministry. Once the online application is completed and signed by electronic signature, there is no need to send any documents to the Ministry .

3.WORK PERMIT EXTENSION APPLICATIONS

Extension application of the work permit period is made to the Ministry of Labor and Social Security. As Internal applications, after completing and signing with e-signature online applications, there is no need to post any documents to ministry. The application for extension could be started from 2 months before the expiry date of the work permit.  After the expiry date of work permit, the applicant no longer may request for extension and the application is regarded as initial application.

  1. HI. We are required to do wind turbine inspection (with drone), means we are not even going to touch the turbine. We are a foreign company with foreigners. Our client is asking for an Assembly VISA, but as I said this is not maintenance, repair, just taking pictures of the turbine. The job won`t take longer than 3 month. What do you recommend to do in this case? Are we exempt of getting a Visa? I found this on the web, under exemptions: Persons who notified the Turkish authorities on the fact that they will provide important services and contributions socio-cultural and technological fields and educational fields within a period not exceeding six months. We are providing just a service. Could you please advice? Thank you

  2. Sir I want to go turkey for work but I Don’t have any offer from turkey so can I apply work visa

    1. Hello,
      You can search for a job in Turkey through websites such as http://www.kariyer.net. Once you find a job your future employer must apply for your work permit. Foreigners can not apply for work permit in their own name or without having a job in Turkey. Application for foreigner who has residence permit valid in total for at least 6 months can be done within Turkey. For foreigners who are not residence permit holders, application must be done via Turkish Consulate in their home country. Work visa can be issued once the work permıt applıcation is approved.

  4. Aoa,
    I’m interested in migrating to Turkey along with my family.. what options do I have??
    Regards

    1. Hello,
      After entering Turkey you and your family can apply for residence permit before expiration of your visa. In order to make an application, foreigners must have address in Turkey and health insurance obtained within the country, which is covering the whole requested period of stay. Once you find a job in Turkey your future employer can transfer your residence permit to work permit. Spouse and minor children of work permit holder are eligible to extend their residence permits for as long as work permit will be valid.
