Immigration summary

The consular and residence permit with a consular work type of visa is the normal work approval procedure in the country. Similarly, the foreign nationals may have a direct contract either directly with a Turkish legal organization or they must remain on contract outside the country; therefore, the Turkish authorities require valid proof of an agreement signed between the applicant and the entity.

In the same vein, another valid option is the change of status from work visitors to residence permit holder upon arrival; subsequently, to a work permit holder. In addition, you must keep in mind that the foreign national cannot conduct businesses until the change of status is completed. Moreover, this process takes from 3 to 6 months, sometimes longer in Istanbul.

However, in PEO Middle East we will ensure this is a hassle-free and quick process for you.

On the other hand, some special work tasks are allowed on an Assembly, Maintenance, and Service (AMS) type of visa for 3 months. However, the applicant must fit, maintain, repair machines, computer programs, install, equipment, or other technical systems to be eligible.

Subsequently, in this process, the foreign nation is sent to fulfill foreign contractual activities to a Turkish legal entity. In addition, we advise that there must be a purchase order in place or an existing service agreement between the sending organization and the host company. Moreover, the foreign nationals must remain on contract and payroll.

Type of work permits in Turkey

  • Independent work permit: this type of permit is issued for foreign nationals living in Turkey consecutively for 5 years, has a positive effect on employment and creates value on economic development.
  • A special work permit for the special Employees (turquoise card): this card is granted for foreigners having an adequate degree of education, occupational experience, and contribution to the employment, the economy, and the technology of the country.

In addition, this turquoise card provides its holder all benefits a permanent work permit gives. Therefore, holders of this type of work permit can benefit from almost all the social benefits Turkish citizens have such as unemployment payment, social security, etc. In the same vein, foreign nationals can apply for a turquoise card by themselves or through a sponsor.
