Has anyone applied for an unlimited work permit?

I am reading that anyone who has lived in Turkey for eight years uninterruptedly can apply for an unlimited work permit. Has anyone applied for one? How did it go?

Re: Has anyone applied for an unlimited work permit?

Don't know about an unlimited work permit, but you can apply for an unlimited residence permit, so long as you have had uninterrupted residence permits for at least eight years. There is a new law that if you have an unlimited residence permit you are allowed to have a work permit, but don't know if it has actually come into force yet.

Re: Has anyone applied for an unlimited work permit?

Thank you Harem. I am aware of the long-term residence permit, what I am asking is about the unlimited work permit. I read that a foreigner who has lived in Turkey for eight years without interruption, or who has a long-term residence permit, can get an unlimited work permit and that this is in the law now. But I don't know of anybody who has applied for one and I would like to learn the procedure, documents needed and such.

Re: Has anyone applied for an unlimited work permit?

Apparently it will be on a points system based on various things including qualifications and the needs of the Turkish economy.
I do not think for one minute it will open the flood gates for regular jobs or suddenly make those working here illegally "legal."

Turkish parliament passes new labor law on foreigners - LOCAL

Re: Has anyone applied for an unlimited work permit?

To add to the info from above, Turkey’s parliament in Ankara has approved the law,but it's not yet been implemented.

The way I read it, the points system isn't applicable to those who have lived in Turkey for eight years or who have long term residence permits. And it is law, I also read it in the law, and that law has been around for a while. Strange how in Turkey, they pass a law, and publish it as law, and then you have to wait for who knows how long for them to "implement" it.

I wonder what would happen if you broke a law which was not yet "implemented."

Re: Has anyone applied for an unlimited work permit?

Obviously a matter for you but personally I wouldnt try it.

Just out of interest what type of job are you hoping to do in Turkey?

Re: Has anyone applied for an unlimited work permit?

I didn't have a job in mind, but it would be nice to be able to work whenever and wherever I want. And since work permits also serve as residence permits, why not apply for the long-term work permit instead of the long-term residence permit, if they involve the same amount of effort and paperwork (or do they)? I'm just asking if anyone has applied for one yet, and for them to share their knowledge if they have.

Re: Has anyone applied for an unlimited work permit?

I have a friend whose unlimited work permit is being processed on the basis of her being a work permit holder for the last 5 years. There seems to be no problem about the application and apparently little likelihood that it will be refused.
