How to Get a Work Permit in Turkey?
In order to get a work permit, you should have an offer of employment, passport photos, proof of your educational qualifications, forms obtained from the embassy and receipt for the fees paid. If your application gets approved, you will get a residence permit (with a work permit) for an initial two-year period. This will be extended for a longer period during your second application.
The majority of the foreign nationals working in Turkey get a job as an English teacher, and tend to prefer major cities as the wages are higher (a job in Istanbul pays you twice the holiday resort wages). If you would like to get a tourism-related work only for the summer months, this would be significantly easier. Voluntary work is also available, especially at rural-aid projects (organized by Genctur).
If you work without a work permit, and the government finds out, you will be warned the first time. However, if you continue working, you will be deported and will not get a permission to enter the country for number of years.
