Work Permit Applications

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.

 

2.   FOREIGNERS RESIDING INSIDE TURKEY

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.

I highly recommend them! I got my residence permit done in less than a month.Marta is nice and patient and guides you... through all the processes. She even got me a driver to get me from the immigration office to the tax office back and forth. It was all done in 3h (you have to wait in line tho, there is no other way). If you don't want to waste time trying to deal with your residence permit, it definitely worth using their service!read more

Hello,
Unfortunately we can not help you to find a job in Turkey. 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.

Kind Regards,

And also attached a PDF file named Turkey Immigration Requirement states as:

Apart from sponsorship from Turkish Based Employers, employees coming to live and work in the Turkey for at least
12 months are mandated to show availability of $3,000USD, which is the stipulated financial requirement/applicant
travel allowance that must be in possession of the applicant/employee into Turkey.
You must be able to demonstrate that you have funds to support yourself and any dependents. For the main applicant
this is $3,000USD and you will need a further $1,500USD for each dependent accompanying you. This is to certify that
you can be responsible for your maintenance as mandated by Turkish Insurance policies to protect and secure
Expatriates financially. This is not a payment but a security deposit to ensure that you can cater for your needs and
support yourself once you arrive here before you receive your first salary from your Employer in line with the Turkish

Due to the recent happenings On the Covid-19 cases inflow of Refugee and other illegal immigrant to Republic of
Turkey it is mandatory that you make the security deposit as was stated by the immigration department to enable them
g rant you work visa
Turkish Immigration would ensure via this means that only eligible applicants who are financially capable are allowed
entry into Turkey and must be competent to show availability of funds in cases of Emergency and for full financial
s ecurity of the applicant/worker before receipt of first month salary and benefits from Employers.

Hello All, seems all story are same and it was all coming from this company name, Goztepe Oil Turk which never listed in Wikipedia. Evem they have the portal, the organization team’s names are mostly not listed in LinkedIn.

So, their email is fraud, even with big salary offered, and without Interview????

That is totally weird.
