Re: Opening a store in Turkey without work permit?

Well, maybe you are right But still.. there is no boy in my mind, and that is not why I dream of the Place eighter. So I will try to keep being careful and take care of myself.

Luckily I have a good friend in Alanya. She is a woman, so at least I have someone to spend time with

Just trying to also confirm what Chinook and others have said.

And just how many times have we heard that before!

And yet people still fall foul of the 'to them' good looking, smooth talking guy/gal they may have even known for a long time.

Scum-bags are scum-bags and they can come from all nationalities and all walks of life, they have no morals and know no boundary's.

If you need and want to work, you will be better off looking towards a EU country where you can work without any problems.

*************

Not so much for your type of work, but maybe for manual workers, a long time ago I nearly started working in Turkey (electrician) with a turkish partner, but I then discovered from other expats that whilst in the summer there may be plenty of work because turks don't like working in the heat, come the winter the bulk of the work would be given to a turkish worker because they look after their own first.

So that is also something that needs to be take into consideration, would there be enough trade during the closed/winter season?

Good luck, and I hope you find what you are looking for, but I doubt it will be in Turkey.

Re: Opening a store in Turkey without work permit?

You'll probably need to keep your financial books in order (not suggesting otherwise) and accountants don't come cheap.

Re: Opening a store in Turkey without work permit?

Now I don't know anything about this, but my opinion is it wouldn't hurt to go in (when it's not busy) and talk to the owners of the stores you have seen that you like, and similar ones selling other goods but of the same size shop as you have in mind. Some won't want competition, but some may be helpful and offer advice.

You could look in other areas than your chosen spot to get as much information as you can, and stress that you won't be in their town competing with them. If you are lucky you will hear of some pitfalls and some wise moves, and then you can go away and weigh it all up and decide who is telling you the truth and who is embroidering it or trying to put you off. Find out if you can realistically earn in the summer enough to support you all year after paying your staff.

If it was me I would first try to find a position working for somebody in the kind of shop you want to have, who would get you a work permit for the season. That way you could find out from the inside what it's really like, learn all the day to day running of such a place and hopefully find out not only if it is possible for you, but if it is truly what you want to do.

But I must stress again I am not resident in Turkey, I don't know the laws and rules on this, I am just thinking there must be practical ways to really find out what you want to know. Good Luck!

However well intentioned , please completely disregard the above. You will end up being deported.

Re: Opening a store in Turkey without work permit?

Thankyou Steve, I too would like to learn all I can about this. Will you explain why this would end in deportation, so I too don't fall into any traps?

Because you would be taking a job that a naturised citizen (Turkish person) could do, therefore taking their job, unlike some countries Turkey puts it's own people first and foremost with foreigners bringing up the rear only being allowed to do what turkish person can't do.

Even for foreigners owning their own business they still have to employ turkish people to do probably 90% of the work whilst the owner has to sit back and watch.

Yes I know this is not 100% in all cases but unless you realise what will happen don't go there.

This is also why most foreigners have turkish partners so they can own a business to share the profit but leave other people to do the work.

Re: Opening a store in Turkey without work permit?

Work permits are available and easier to get for yabancis but İ donb't think you would get one for shop work as lots of local could do that job. Deportaion when it happens is quick 24 - 48 hours time to collect your cloths and leave. Save your money and come for a holiday apart hotels can be cheap out of season.
