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.

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,

Dear Concerned,

I received an email from BM Holding A.S. regarding an employment offer with a very lucrative offer. Now they directed me to their visa consultant, saying that he shall be responsible to process visa, permits, etc. He has sent me a form and a document with details for visa, following is his email:

“The Paper work permit /visa processing will be done by us here in Turkish Immigration Headquarters in Ankara after which the approval letter will be courier to you before you can visit our embassy consulate in your country for the stamping for your passports with Turkish entry visa.

Also, you are to know that BM Holding A.S will be responsible for your “AIRTICKET FEE, HOUSE ACCOMODATION , AIRPORT ALLOWANCE.”

1. Kindly note that your work permit document will be processed as non-appearance candidate.

2. There is “NO” interview needed from you because, BM Holding A.S has signed your invitation and you have been found qualified for Four(4) years Turkish work Permit endorsement.

3. Once your Work permit is approved, I will send hard copies of the documents to you via your provided address and fax copies to Turkish Embassy in your country.

4. As soon as your visa processing is completed, I will inform you to visit Turkish Embassy along with a hard copy of your international passport for final visa Stamping.

5. Your Work Permit will be Issued in 3-4 working days from the date of application submission.”

In the document he has is asking to deposit USD 3000 in my own name via MoneyGram which will be a security deposit and can be collected on my arrival in Turkey. Kindly advise if its genuine or a scam.

dulal miah

my name is dulal miah i got an appointment letter from Turkish Summa Construction Company along with the Terms of contract they are asking to send a receipt for security deposit in my account ,as they say employees come to live and work in Turkey for at least 12 months are mandated to show availability see below email from HR Manager from M/s Summa for your info.

Dear Dulal Mohamad,
Kindly note that the security deposit 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 Expatriate Financial Statutory Law.

This deposit is to be made before the issuance of your visa and work permit.

You would be referred to our approved visa agent here in Turkey for immediate start up of your visa and work permit procurement as soon as you send a scanned copy of your signed contract document.
The documents required for visa processing;
• Passport photograph
• Medical report
• International passport
• Security deposit receipt
• Mailing address

And a list of other things that will be provided by our approved visa agent.

Therefore my concern is that for visa processing in Turkey normally they ask to show the security deposit through receipt in our account?

Please advice me on this issue as soon as possible

Dear Sir/Madam,

If you stay in the Turkish territory for longer than the time you are allowed (Ex:Visa, Residence Permit etc…) you will be considered Overstaying. In this case you will have to pay a Penalty at your exit of territory, if do not pay this penalty you will not be able to re-enter the Turkish territory.

You can check our webpage concerning the Overstay in the link bellow :

Dear Mr Randy,

These information seems to be misleading. We strongly advice you to be carefull concerning this proposition.

The first point is related to the Residency Permit, the application fort he residency permit can only be done once you enter Turkey, and the Residency Permit is not required for a work permit abroad application. Also Entry Clearence Fee and Release Document Fees doesn’t exist.

Dear Mr Kelvin,

Unfortunately you cannot apply for a residency permit once the first application has been cancelled. If your residency permit has been cancelled and you still have a valid visa, you can make a second application. However if your visa has also expired you will have to re-enter Turkey with a Visa.
