  1. I only have a few few weeks left on my residency permit. I have been working. I didn’t realize that I need a work permit too. My question is whether or not I have time to get a work permit, allowing me to extend my time here, before my residency expires on 16 June.

    • Hello,
      If your residence permit has been valid in total for at least 6 months your employer must apply for work permit before expiration of your current permit. Application must be submitted until the last day of your residence permit’s validity. You are allowed to stay in Turkey legally during the evaluation process.

  2. Hello,
    I have a friend and she came from USA. Her visa ended 4 months ago and that was a tourist visa. In this case how much she has to pay for overstay fee? Is it the same with the one on the page written residence permit fees on top?

    • Hello,
      The official fine for overstaying is double of the residence permit fee. For USA citizens it is 50 USD for first month of overstay and 10 USD for every remaining month. Please, be informed that final decision on the amount of fine will be taken by customs at the airport and it can differ from official amounts.

  3. I want to inquire if it is possible for a me to get a pharmacy job after registering with the turkey pharmacy body. What are the chances of me being hired in Turkey
    Thank you

    • Hello,
      Unfortunately, foreigners can not do jobs related to pharmacy in Turkey. You can only be allowed to work in this field if you obtain Turkish citizenship.

  4. Good afternoon,

    I read your article about acquiring Turkish citizenship. I am writing to you because I have a question, I hope you can help me. I am Portuguese and my husband is Turkish and we got married in Portugal. We already delivered the papers to obtain my Turkish citizenship. When filling out the form to put the surnames in Turkish, the officer told me that I should enter only my husband’s surname. Then later I realized than I can add one of my maiden names. My question is can I still add one of my maiden names during the process ? I don’t even know if I can do it with the examination Comission later? Or how could I do? Thanks

    • Hello,

      If you have already submitted VAT form with only your husband’s surname it is not possible to add your maiden surname on this stage of application. After acquisition of Turkish citizenship you can change your surname by the decision of the court, however this kind of cases can take even more than one year to be evaluated. Mostly in situation like yours cases are evaluated positively though.

      Best Regards,

  6. Hi,

    I graduated from Turkey and I have a short term permit that will expire in a couple of months. I’m thinking of enrolling in a part-time masters programme. Do you know if part-time graduate students are eligible for a student permit?

    Additionally there is a high chance I’ll find an employer as well towards the end of the year. Assuming that I’m enrolled in a part-time masters programme, will my employer be able to apply for a work permit on my behalf while my masters in ongoing (i.e. I have a student permit)?

    Thank you

    • Hello,
      After you would be enrolled in a part-time Master programme within Turkey you are eligible for residence permit application on this basis, however you will need to obtain student visa first in order to apply for student residence permit. After you find an employer in Turkey you can obtain work permit as a Master degree student under condition that you were not receiving state scholarship during Bachelor’s degree in Turkey.

      Kind Regards,

      • Helo again and thank you for your time.

        Just to confirm your answer to student permit question, I will have to enter the country with a student visa for the masters programme i.e. I’ll have to exit, get a student visa and re-enter the country, is that correct?

        Thanks once again

        • Hello,
          If you will be holder of other kind of residence permit at the time of enrollment in university you can directly transfer it to student residence permit without leaving Turkey.
