      Hello,
      Thank you for your comment.

      You can only apply for residence permit from the city where you are going to live in. If you are planning to stay in Istanbul, you must provide Immigration Office with your Istanbul address and will be only eligible for application there.

      Hello,
      Thank you for your comment.

      In order to do your profession in Turkey, you would need to obtain equivalency certificate here and find an employer, who must apply for your work permit as a doctor before you can start working.

    Hi

    I am currently working in antalya and I have the residence permit card which expires in 1st December 2019 but my work contract expires on th 30th September 2019, does this mean my visa would expire as soon as my work contract finishes ? (Visa was given through my work, I don’t think it should but I want to be clear about it)

    • ExpatGuideTurkey

      Hello,
      Thank you for your comment.

      If you have work permit valid until December and you will extend your work contract, your work permit would not be cancelled. However, if you will not continue working in the same place, your employer should cancel your work permit as by the day when you leave your workplace. You can either apply for residence permit before the work permit will be cancelled or will need to leave Turkey within 10 days after cancellateion.

      Kind Regards,

      Dear Ahmed,
      Thank you for your comment.

      Unfortunately, we do not have any informations about this job offer. However, the procedures and requested amount to pay are not relevant to work permit application in Turkey. We strongly recommend you to be careful and not to make any payments in advance as by your explanation, this offer most probably is a scam.

    Good evening,

    I have just started a new job, they applied for my work visa about 6 weeks ago and they said my visa should be arriving anytime soon. My work visa from my previous job was cancelled on August 14th so is no longer valid. I was wondering if I need to apply for a residency visa in the meantime until my new work visa comes, or does the fact that my employer has made the application allow me to stay here?

    Many thanks

    I am a sales professional with 9 years of sales experience with an MBA Degree. Now I want to move to Turkey for job. How can I?

    • ExpatGuideTurkey

      Hello,
      Thank you for your comment.

      After you find a job in Turkey, 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 permit application can not be submitted basing on visa.

      Kind Regards,

    • ExpatGuideTurkey

      Hello,
      Thank you for your comment.

      The company must apply for work permit on your behalf. You are only allowed to start working after work permit card will be issued.

    Good morning,
    Hope you are doing well.
    I have a question regarding remote work. I am currently employed in Denmark, and I have a contract with the company. I am here on a short term visa, since I just finished university and now I am waiting for the danish government to process my application to leave to Denmark. Do I need to apply for a work permit? or is it completely legal to work remotely?
    Best Regards

    Hello,

    I had a residence permit as an intonational student, I lost my card and I am already in the process of having it again, they told me it could take a month for my reissued permit to arrive. Is it possible for me to go out of Turkey before my permit arrives? I already had it but I lost the card and its already being processed the reposition of the new one, I just want to make sure I won’t have issues going out or inn of Turkey without the card. For me it makes sense that they have register in the system that I have a residence permit, but I wanna make sure they won’t try to charge me for staying longer than a simply tourist.

    Thank you

    • ExpatGuideTurkey

      Hello,
      Thank you for your comment.

      You should ask Immigration Office to issue a document stating that you are currently a residence permit holder to use it during entering Turkey by the time the new card will be delivered to you.

      Hello,
      Thank you for your comment.

      Property payment must be completed in order to be eligible for Turkish Citizenship application on basis of investment. Obtaining residence permit is one of the stages of Turkish Citizenship by Investment application, however, is not required in the first stage to make the investment. Those, who acquire Turkish Citizenship before reaching maturity, will need to accomplish military service in the future.
