Hello, I have reviewed your site; it is a quite informative and good site. First of all, I thank you for your service, you inform us substantially. My first question is related to my wife, she has Uzbekistan passport. We come to Turkey within one month. First of all, how is the work permit which you mention in your writings, received? What are the difficulties? If we buy automobile with blue license plate from you, do we have opportunity to use vehicle credit from banks in Turkey in order to buy such automobile? My second question: If we come to Turkey by the car with foreign license plate and we go out of and come back to Turkish customs again by such car every 6 months, if we use automobile with Uzbekistan or Kazakhstan license plate, does it cause any problem? Or is such probability possible? Thank you in advance for your answer.

If your wife has appropriate qualifications for the company in which she will work in Turkey and if necessary documents are complete, she will get work permit. Our parent company namely 9ekim provides consultancy services for getting work permits related to getting work permit for foreign personnel. As for the credit, banks have decision right and authority about this subject. The bank with which you work decides by considering your deposit and your status as a customer in the bank. It is not possible to extend 6 months period by bringing your own car and then making entry and exit because it was forbidden to extend period again by making entry and exit every 6 months in 2001. In case you exceed triptyque period for 6 months, you may be obliged to pay heavy penalties such as 3 times of customs duty.

HOW IS IT APPLIED for work permit?

One of the following first two conditions should be fulfilled and a correct and complete application file should be prepared in order to make application of foreign personnel work permit. For getting work permit which is one of the activity areas of 9ekim group, you can visit web sites of and
Residence permit: It is applied with the forms to be completed pursuant to information and documents of foreign personnel who got residence permit for minimum six months in Turkey and whose period did not expire, and information and documents of institution or organization to be worked. Application may not be made to the Ministry without residence permit in Turkey.
Work Visa application: Those who do not have residence permit for minimum six months in Turkey may not make application from Turkey. They should make application for work visa to Turkish Consulates in their own country personally.
Period of Application to Ministry: Permit application file signed by the company and foreigner should be delivered to Ministry of Labor at the latest within 10 days as of date of work visa application made to the Consulate. Applications made after 10 days elapse are not accepted.
Opportunity to get permit is maximized with an application file prepared correctly and completely in compliance with inspection and assessment criteria of the ministry.Applications made with the missing documents may be assessed negatively and refused by the institution and also may extend permit approval period for months due to the period to be lost for demanding and completing the missing documents.
For these reasons, preparation of foreign personnel work permit application file by a team like our company, which knows inspection and assessment criteria of the Ministry very well and which is experienced for years, is an essential requirement for company and foreigner.

I am British citizen and I am working in the abroad. I visited Turkey for travelling in the summer holiday. I got triptyque driving permit for 6 months in Kapıkule entry point for me to drive my car in Turkey however such permit expires in the following month. If I go to Greece and I stay there for 1 night and then I enter into Turkey again by my car next day, can I get driving permit for new period of 6 months?

It is not possible to extend 6 months period by bringing your own car and then making entry and exit because it was forbidden to extend period again by making entry and exit every 6 months in 2001. In case you exceed triptyque period for 6 months, you may be obliged to pay heavy penalties such as 3 times of customs duty. On the expiration of driving rights granted for the vehicles, which arrive Turkey temporarily under the scope of touristic exemptions, in the entry points in Turkey for maximum 6 months, if both owner of vehicle and also vehicle remain in the abroad again for 6 months, it gets driving right in Turkey for a new period of 6 months.

As for the guarantee, we pay such money into the bank and can we get its interest from the bank? You have mentioned about bank guarantee in your explanations. How can we get guarantee letter from the bank without depositing the money?

A foreigner, who got residence permit in Turkey, can not drive a vehicle with foreign license plate by using Triptyque period because this right is granted only for tourists. The information, which you have obtained, is incorrect. It is not possible to extend triptyque period any more by making entry and exit, which is an application made before 10 years.
