How to Apply for Work Permits in Turkey?
Applications for work permits in Turkey are made through the e-Government portal of Turkey. The automated work permit application system enables users to fill out the online work permit application form and upload necessary documents into the system.
Once the online application is made through the e-government portal, the employer is required to make a direct application to the Ministry by mail or in person.
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 Turkey can make their work permit applications through the Turkish representative offices in their home countries.
In the existence of a residence permit valid for at least 6 months, foreigners residing in Turkey can make their applications directly to the Ministry of Labor and Social Security.
Foreigners Residing Outside of Turkey
Foreigners residing outside Turkey are subject to applying for work permits in Turkey from the representative offices of Turkey in their own countries. In pursuance of the work permit application of foreigners, within 10 working days, the employer should process both online and direct applications to the Ministry of Labor and Social Security in Turkey.
Once approval from the Ministry is granted, foreigners are required to apply for a work visa at 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. This work permit validity requirement of residence permit application within 30 days of obtaining the work permit (for consulate applications 30 days 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.

Once the online application is submitted, the employer is required to make a direct application to the Ministry within 6 working days.
How to Renew Work Permits in Turkey?
