- With a touristvisa you are not allowed to work. It will even say that work is prohibited on the visa itself. You will be able to work illegal probably, but I wouldnt take that risk.

- To be able to obtain a work-visa, it would be advicable to try and find a job there first (you can apply from the internet or send around mails or maybe your friend knows someone). If they are serious, they will send you papers. Official work-documents will help you obtain a work-visa.

- There is also a student-visa which sometimes can be obtained just with the paper of the course. However you would have to go to school and Im not sure if thats what you want, and courses can be rather expensive.

- I know quite a few people who do it like this, though it may differ from country to country whether this is possible or not: Come to Turkey on the basis of a tourist visa, and when there are just 2 or 3 days left, leave the country to a close one: at the coast of turkey you can easily book a two-way ticket to a Greek İsland. You take a boat in the morning and in the evening you return, buying a new tourist visa. Unless your country requires for the visa to be obtained before entering turkey, this could be impossible.



-- I dont know when you are planning to go to turkey, but if it is really soon, try to find a job right now in for example a hotel. You might be able to get a place from now till the end of summer, so you can get a work-visa.

Deli_kizin,thank u sooo much.
i will adjust my plan.if i use my tourist visa,when i arrive at tukey can i change the type of visa?such as work visa? because if i want to get work visa from turhish embassy in china,that is a difficult thing,normally i will wait for 4 months ,and 4 months is the best complexion.
