Work Permit

The Ministry of Labor has very strict and detailed procedures for foreign nationals who seek to work in Turkey, these are mandated according to law number 4815 of the labor code. Based in the city center of Istanbul, Our company offers assisstance in dealing with these detailed and strict procedures through consultancy, document preparation, and application services for expats in Turkey. This service is available to organizations who are relocating employees to Turkey, as well as individuals who require permits.

The key to a successful work permit application process is the proper preparation of the application file. This file contains official application forms in addition to supporting documents, and it is these supporting documents which are scrutinized and often negatively affect the outcome of the process.

Thanks to our expert staff and support of our legal team, we are able to effectively resolve issues that may be faced before the application is even submitted. We do this by assessing the individual situation to determine the correct supporting documents, controlling existing documents to make sure that the risk of rejection is mitigated, and by formulating accurate predictions about the outcome in order to give our clients a clear picture of what to expect. This has resulted in a high success rate in attaining work permits in a timely manner thanks to our knowledgeable staff, and has made us the preferred choice both individuals and organizations for outsourcing this task in Turkey.
