Working in Turkey

With a few exceptions, most foreign nationals require a visa to enter Turkey for any reason, including short-term business visits and tourist visits. 

Unless the country of origin is visa-free, business visitors to Turkey will need to apply for and secure an entry visa. Citizens of many countries can apply for an eVisa, which typically allows the holder to stay in Turkey for up to 90 days.

Most often, foreign nationals will apply for a Tourist/Businessperson visa if the stay is less than 90 days and involves business-related activities, including business meetings, conferences, and seminars. For long-term residency and employment in Turkey, foreign nationals will apply for a Working Visa and will also need to secure a work permit.

Employers and employees need to make sure they apply for the correct visa or work authorization and provide the necessary documentation in their application and when entering Turkey. There are a variety of different types of work authorizations and visas in Turkey, but we’ve listed the main Turkish visa categories below.

Types of Visas

  • Tourist/Businessperson Visa
  • Official Visa
  • Student-Education Visa
  • Working Visa
  • Other Visa

It’s important to note that the Turkish border crossings with many neighboring countries are very strict and can be time consuming, so factor in where your company’s employees will cross into Turkey.
