In addition to our Payroll Turkey solution, Gartner Inc offers also Work Permit Turkey services.

If a job has been offered by a Turkish company, an application for a work permit Turkey can be made before moving to Turkey. Otherwise, if a job is found once in the country, the application may be made in Turkey. Documents required for an application may vary depending on the industry sector and the level of the position.

The Turkish company offering the job is required to meet the work permit criteria to employ a foreigner. These include the requirement that there be a minimum number of Turkish nationals employed by the company, and a stipulation that the foreigner is paid an equal wage to a Turkish national.

Regardless of whether you apply for a work permit Turkey from inside or outside of Turkey, you will need to have an employment contract or job offer. Once you and your employer have submitted your application, the MLSS (Ministry of Labor and Social Security) will process the application within 90 days

It is also possible, however, to apply for a work permit from inside Turkey. Foreigners are eligible to do so if they have already been issued a residence permit with a remaining validity of at least six months. Foreigners who entered Turkey as tourists are not eligible for work permits.

If your application is approved, you must travel to a Turkish embassy in person to have the work visa and permit stamped into your passport. If you are applying from inside Turkey, you can pick up your visa and permit at the MLSS offices in Ankara.


Residence Permit Turkey


Finally, you must apply for a residence permit within 30 days of your arrival in Turkey. Apply at the Foreigner´s Branch of the local police station closest to your employer. You are not allowed to start working until you have obtained your work visa, work permit Turkey, and residence permit.
