Work Permit

Work permt is a permission which is given by Ministry of Labour of Republic of Turkey to foreign employees and companies which would like to employ foreigners. There is four types of work permit as temporary, permanenet, independent and Turquoise cards. The work permit application could be done via https://ecalismaizni.csgb.gov.tr/#/eizin by using electronic signature of employer or by authorized consultancy firm on behalf of the employer. Foreigners cannot obtain work permit on behalf of themself, without employers.

Under contemporary globalization, inevitably labor markets have become increasingly integrated. In order to manage international labor mobility more effectively, especially in those emerging markets and developing countries, new labor migration policies have been established or the existing ones have been re-organized rapidly. At this point, achieving a right balance between the protection of local employment and the relaxation of barriers before high-skilled foreign labor has been the main concern of the state, which led to the introduction of effective tools in the management of international labor mobility.

2003 has been a remarkable year for Turkey to review its rules and principles dealing with the employment of foreign workers in Turkey. As one of the most popular destinations within the global labor market, Turkey has introduced and effectively has reformed a new system to control foreign labor immigration. In the purpose of centralization of work permits system under one code ‘Law no: 4817 on Work Permits of Foreigners’ was originally enacted on 27th February 2003, as the principal legislation in controlling entry of foreign nationals in the Turkish labor market. Subsequently the same year ‘Regulation on the Implementation of the Law on Work Permits for Foreigners’[1] has been introduced to set forth the rules and principles regarding the implementation of the Law on Work Permits of Foreigners. Furthermore, within the context of encouraging foreign direct investments, a new Foreign Direct Investment act was voted and became effective on 5th June 2003. Under the new FDI law, a special treatment is granted to the employment of expatriates with a separate regulation on the employment of expatriates under foreign direct investments. To encourage the employers to seek to employ high skilled foreign workers as well as to prevent informal foreign employment in Turkey, the past few years we have witnessed both systematical and procedural reforms in the Turkish legislation about the foreign labor immigration. Simplification of the eligibility conditions in work permit applications, adaptation of a new automated system for the work permit applications, a shortening in the period of the finalization of the work permit applications and a reduction in the procedural costs of applications might be considered main themes of the reform in the Turkish work permit system. There is no doubt that those further amendments have provided to the Turkish work permit system a more simplified, understandable and dynamic outlook.

The Law on Work Permits of Foreigners provides a legal framework about the employment of foreigners in Turkey by specifying  the rules and the principles to be applied at the procedures concerning work permits of foreigners. The law, in its relevant sections, specifies the types of work permits, outlines the exemptions and restrictions and formulates the rules about granting, extending, rejecting and canceling the working permissions.

 

The Turkish Ministry of Labor and Social Security is entitled as a competent authority in the work permit process of foreigners. However certain Ministries, Public Institutions and Organizations are also empowered to grant working permissions.  On the basis of their existing authorities arising from relevant Turkish legislation, Prime Ministry, Ministry of National Defense, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Economy , General Directorate of Free Zones and  Council of Higher Education have the competence to grant working permission for specific categories of professions.

As a general rule, individuals who have no citizenship bond with the Republic of Turkey, in order to either work dependently or independently, are obliged to have a valid working permission before they start to work.  Exceptionally, for the working periods no more than one month, in the state of necessity or for the sake of state benefits, by prior notification of relevant authorities and with the ministry approval, working permit may be given after starting to work.

The rules and principles stipulated in the Law on Work Permits of Foreigners are applicable to the foreigners working dependently or independently in Turkey. Those foreigners who receive a job training and the natural and judicial persons that employ foreigners are included within the scope of Law No. 4817 as well. The term “foreigner” in general refers to a person who is not a Turkish citizen under the Turkish Citizenship Law.[1] However those Turkish citizens by birth who got permission to renounce citizenship from the Ministry of Interior are excluded from the scope of Law No. 4817. Moreover, press reporters who are subjected to Press Law, Members of Foreign Press Organs, foreigners who are exempted from working permission requirement in their employment in Turkey due to reciprocity principle, international and European Union laws and foreigners who are employed or granted with working permission by the other Ministries, Public Institutions and Organizations [2] are not included within the scope of the Law on Work Permits of Foreigners.

In accordance with the article 15 of the Law on Work Permits of Foreigners, certain professions are reserved only for Turkish citizens. Different legal instruments in Turkey, prohibit foreigners to work either dependently or independently in  certain professions and occupations. Foreigners are not allowed to work; (i) as attorney[3] (ii)  as notary public[4] (iii) as security guard at private or public institutions[5] (iv) as customs broker and assistant customs broker[6] (v) as dentist, midwife and nurse[7] (vi) as pharmacist[8] (vii) as Veterinarian [9] (vii) as director in private hospitals[10].

Moreover in accordance with Turkish Cabotage Law[11]

“The right to catch or obtain fish, oysters, mussels, sponges, pearls, coral, mother-or-pearl and the like, extract sand, gravel and the like, extract and salvage sunken ships and vessels or shipwrecks and the like either on the surface or on the bottom of the sea, perform diving, searching, piloting and maritime supply, work as captain, secretary, crew or workman or in another capacity on Turkish maritime vessels, and carry out wharf porterage or any type of maritime business, within Turkish continental waters, shall belong exclusively to Turkish nationals.”

Additionally, law no: 6458 on Foreigners and Internal Protection defines the cases in which foreigners may not apply for work permit. Article 27(2) of law no: 6458 states that the following foreigners (who are defined in the article 7 of the law no: 6458) may not apply for work permit.

 “i) it is determined that his or her passport, passport substituting document, visa or residence permit or work permit is absent or fraudulent; or that he or she has obtained these permits fraudulently, ii) he or she does not hold a passport or a passport substitute document which is valid for at least sixty days as of the expiry of visa, visa exemption or residence permit, iii) he or she falls under the scope of the foreigners listed under the first paragraph of Article 15, without prejudice to the second paragraph of Article 15 of this Law, and regardless of whether or not he or she is exempted from a visa.”

    Merhaba:

    I have a couple of questions about work-permit and my status in Turkey.

    1. I move to Istanbul in September 2015. So this year, I will be in the country for 5 years. Is this grant me for a new status here in the country? If it does, which are the benefit of it. ( I am originally from an EU country )

    2. I am currently under work-permit status. I am waiting for an offer for a new job, the new company is here in Turkey.
    My question is: Is it possible for the new company to make my new work-permit without the need of me to apply for a new Ikamet and then, the new company will apply for the my new work-permit. If it is possible. What do we/I need to do?

    Many thanks in advance,
    All the best,

      Hello,
      If you spend five years in Turkey uninterruptedly on basis of work permit, you can be eligible for Turkish citizenship on this basis. During mentioned five years you should not stay out of Turkey for more than 6 months in a row and more than one year in total.
      If you decide to change your job, work permit transfer can be made from one company to another with no need to apply for residence permit. Our company provides services regarding work permit transfer. If you want, we can assist your employer throughout the process. For details you can contact us at: info@expatguideturkey.com

        Thanks for your reply. I will consider pass your details to my new employee.

        What Turkish citizenship means? Which benefits I can have during this? I am Spanish and my country does not allow two passports. I am confuse here. Would you clarify what turkish citizenship will benefit from?

        Many thanks in advance. You guys have been super helpful 🙂

        • Expatguide

          If you would acquire Turkish citizenship on basis of work permit, you would have the same rights as Turkish citizens by birth. You would also not need work permit to reside and work in Turkey as you would be a Turkish ID holder.

For foreigners who are not residence permit holders, application must be done via Turkish Consulate in their home country and the work visa is issued once the work pemit application is approved.

    Hello
    I have applied for tourist residence via rental contract. But all appointments in immigration office are postponed due to covid19. It is now 5 months I’m in Turkey. By the time of my rendezvous it will be more than six months and by the time I get my kimlik card maybe about 8 months.
    Can i apply for work permit now and directly without caring for that residence? Let’s say there is an employer who is ready to employ me.
    And if I get my residence and only 3 months left out of it, will that affect getting a work permit?

    • Expatguide

      Hello,
      Application for foreigner who has residence permit valid in total for at least 6 months can be done within Turkey. In this case work permit application can be submitted until the last day of resident permit’s validity, remaining duration is not taken under consideration. For foreigners who are not residence permit holders, application must be done via Turkish Consulate in their home country. After the application would be approved, work visa is issued so you can re-enter Turkey on this basis and start working directly after entering the country.

      Kind Regards,

    My employer is threatening to cancel my work permit in the next two weeks. I have a residence permit which was issued previous to the work permit and has not yet expired. Would this residence permit still be valid until its expiration date despite cancellation of the work permit?

    • Expatguide

      Hello,
      Your residence permit was cancelled automatically when your work permit was issued. You can apply for new residence permit within 10 days upon cancellation of your work permit.

    Hi!
    I am EU citizen employed by a European company. This company is supposed to do a 6 months long project in Turkey and I am supposed to be the manager on site.
    Do I need a visa for that? Is there a way to obtain a visa for this type of activity?

    Thanks for your answer!

    • Expatguide

      Hello,
      You should obtain a visa for this purpose, however type of visa depends on company’s assignment in Turkey, field and kind of project. You should contact Turkish Embassy in your home country for detailed informations regarding application procedures for your case.

      Kind Regards,

    Hello,

    I hope this finds you well. I am a foreigner living in Turkey right now. I have my residence permit for a year and I am looking at getting a work permit as I feel that would be great for visa purposes and travel as I work as a Nomad Capitalist. I travel a lot.

    I do not have any company in Turkey right now as I am still looking into things here. However, I would like to acquire a work permit. Can you help me with this?

    What would be the total cost for this if you were to acquire the work permit for me? Also, how much insurance fees and tax would I be paying monthly? This is very important to me.

    Finally, if I were to renew my residence permit with your agency, what would be the total cost and is it 100% guarantee I would get the residence permitted renewal approved?

As your application is still in progress, your employer can cancel it if you decide to accept another job offer before cuurent application will be approved. If you decide to change your workplace after work permit application would be approved, transfer of work permit from one workplace to another should be made.

      If you find a new job, your current employer and your future employer can make a transfer of your work permit from one company to another. Otherwise, if you quit your job, you have a right to apply for residence permit before cancellation of current work permit and after it would be issued, work permit application can be made after you find a new job.

  • Andrew N.

    Hello,

    I am currently working in Turkey on a work permit (original expiration date: 30/06/2020). However, I am quitting my job and the official employment termination date is now set as 25/01/2020. Hence, I believe the expiration date of my work permit is also changed to this date (i.e., 25/01/2020). My company has approved me taking annual leave from 10/01/2020 to 25/01/2020, so my actual last day of work would be 09/01/2020. And I am planning to leave Turkey on 10/01/2020. I just want to confirm that it is okay to leave the country about 2 weeks before the new expiration date of my work permit without the need to show any documentation or proof of anything.

    Sincerely,

    Andrew N.

I had a work permit but I resigned two months ago,( I Have collected as much information as I could about that) as I was informed there is no problem doing that if I will apply for a new residence within 10 days from my resignation day,and that was what I did , today I had my appointment and they weren’t very optimists about it they even told me that According to the low I will not be able to apply for a residence for one year because I resigned, even though I spoke with the line and they told me it’s totally normal that I apply for a tourist residence after resigning.

      Hello,
      Thank you for your comment.

      Visa rejime depends on your nationality, regardless of being residence/work permit holder in Turkey.

      Kind Regards,
