Dear Members,

In the letter sent to our Association by the Republic of Turkey Ministry of Labor and Social Security General Directorate of International Labor Force;

Although it is possible for tour operator representative foreigners to work in Turkey within the scope of work permit exemption in line with the provisions of the aforementioned legislation, in order to meet the periodic needs of the tourism sector and to carry out the process effectively, the work permit applications made for foreigners who will work as "Tour Operator Representative", to be valid in 2024, provided that a work permit is issued for a maximum of eight (8) months, one time within a period of twelve (12) months as of the date of application, in Article 1 of the "Work Permit Evaluation Criteria". Article 1 of the "Work Permit Evaluation Criteria" states that "At least five Turkish citizens must be employed in the workplace where a work permit is requested." However, applications for work permits for more than eight months will be subject to general evaluation criteria (employment, wages and capital).

For detailed information, please see the attached official letter.

Sincerely for your information.
