Work Permit Application
In order for foreigners to work in Turkey, a “work permit” must be obtained.
Provisions on foreign personnel work permits have been determined within the framework of the law and applications no. 6735.
Work Permits are issued by the General Directorate of International Labour under the Ministry of Labour and Social Security by evaluating the foreigners’ purpose of coming to Turkey, their nationality, the information of the foreigner registered in the Turkish database, according to bilateral agreements.
Work Permit applications are made by the employer. As Miorec, we produce special solutions for you with our expert team in all of the processes.
The application is made by the employer in Turkey who meets the following criteria:
- There are 5 (five) Turkish employees for each foreign employee,
- The paid-up capital of the operating company is at least 100.000 TL or,
- Its annual turnover is at least 800.000 TL or,

Permit to Work Evaluation Criteria are fully available below.
The conditions such as the wage to be granted to the foreign personnel being eligible for the work to be performed etc. are examined by the Ministry.
Miorec examines the documents of the employer and the foreigner before the application, evaluates them and informs them about the eligibility of the application. Positive or negative possibilities that may occur after the evaluation are discussed mutually and applications are made.
The first application is made as 1 year. In the following years, 2 and 3-year extensions can be made if they continue in the same employer. Permission is granted as 1 year when the employer is changed or in transfer applications.
