Hello,

My company is applying for a work permit. I live in Turkey and finished my masters here. 1) I’m Colombian, do I need a translated and notarized copy of my passport. 2) My masters diploma is from a public Turkish university, does it need to be notarized also?

Thank you for your great work!

Hi Maria,

1-) No, you do not need to have your passport notarized. If your passport consists of Latin letters; You don’t need to translate.
2-) Yes, you need to have your diploma notarized.

Hello,
You do not need to obtain new residence permit in the city you will work in to be eligible for work permit application. Once you obtain work permit and start working in another city and move there you will only need to register your address in local directorate of Population.

Hello,
There is no such a requirement in Turkey. You can read about current fees for work and residence permit in our article: Work and Residence Permit Fees for 2021

Thank you so much for your helpful answer, I rated u Five stars on google maps reviews. I have one more question about this rule:
“validity of your passports must be at least two months longer than validity of your work permit. For example, if your passport is only valid for 12 months upon the starting date of work permit, the permit can be granted for maximum 10 months”
does this rule apply to other kinds of residence permits too?. my wife is Turkish, so if I apply for family residence permit also I will get visa two months shorter than my passport validity ?? or its different case?

Thanks in advance.
