Applying Working Visa

It is essential that the foreigners intending to work in Turkey must obtain a work visa from the Turkish Missions abroad prior to their arrival. Those who arrive with their work visas and if the validity of their visas suitable, will be granted a residency permit first for one year then two or longer years.

You have to find your job first and put your application to a Turkish Mission abroad, e.g Turkish Consulate in London. Phone number is 020 7393 0202 — Fax: 020 7393 0066. The address is 43 Belgrave Square, London SW1X 8PA.

It would be best to apply for a job with one of the tour operators in United Kingdom, for instance you could work as a holiday rep in Marmaris.

Please put your application as early as possible so that required formalities will be completed on time. You will then be granted with a work permit only if your application is suitable.

If you are granted with one year residency visa, please do not forget to convert this visa to a residency permit in Turkey within a month commencing your arrival.
