Types of work visas in Turkey

This beautiful country offers several visa categories that are divided into further options. Let’s observe:

  • Working visa.
  • Official visa.
  • Tourist/businessperson visa.
  • Student/education visa.
  • Other visas.

Most foreign nationals need a work visa and companies must apply for each work permit on behalf of their workers when they apply for their visa. In addition, all workers must submit their application to Turkey’s consulate or embassy in their home country. In the same vein, you must apply for a work permit under the Ministry of Family, Labor, and Social Services.

However, individuals’ holders of the work visa cannot exceed 90 to 180 days. Thus, foreign nationals staying for more than 3 months must apply for a short-term permit through the Directorate General of Migration Management. Similarly, all work permits in the country are valid for 1 year and can be renewed to 2 years, and then to 3 after a second extension.

On the other hand, once the foreign nationals are residing and working in the country for more than 8 continuous years, they can apply for an unlimited work permit that does not require renewal.

Requirements to acquire a work visa in the country

Certainly, the different requirements to acquire a work visa depend on the type of visa the individual is applying for, and the reason for visiting the country. However, some of the possibilities include:

  • Sportspersons.
  • Artists.
  • Individuals with an already existing employment or special employment purpose.
  • Assigned lecturer or academics.
  • Free zone workers.
  • Montage and craftsmen.
  • Journalists.

However, after you decide which visa your workers will need, you can apply, answering a few basic information questions and the purpose of their visit,  After that, the immigration department will provide a date for an interview, and they must present the following required documents:

  • Background police clearance certificate.
  • A valid passport.
  • Translated academic diploma or provisional graduation certificate.
  • A job offer or employment contract
  • Medical insurance.
  • Proof of accommodation in the country.
  • 2 photos.
  • Round-trip flight.
  • Evidence of having about TRY 370 for every day spent.

Application Process

As soon as your workers receive the job offer, they must apply for a work visa. Similarly, they can apply for 2 months before they travel to the country, and the workers must apply for the visa 1 month in advance. However, in PEO Middle East we take care of this process skipping the usual month it takes and you can start working in a few days.

In the same vein, while most foreign individuals can file their visa application in their home country, others can use an application center run by a third party.

On the other hand, you need to submit all employment documents to the Ministry of Labor within 10 days of applying. After that, once your workers go to their interview, they must notify us so we can take care of our end of the application process. In addition, you must send the embassy all required documents within 10 days of the worker’s interview.
