Quoting ashleightanner

 Ye i mean´t citizen!!!!!{#lang_emotions_shy} doh!!!! Also is there s difference between living permit and residency permit? what do you ned for a residant permit? Sorry to keep asking questions.

If you apply for a living permit then while your out there can you apply for the residency permit?


 Not sure what you mean by a ´living permit´.  You can have 3 month visitor´s visa which you have to keep renewing by leaving the country.  For resident´s permit you have to prove you have sufficient income to ´meet your needs´ - i.e. live off!  A permanent address (can be rented accommodation) and a tax number.  You can get residency for one or two years to start with - they will give up to 5 years but most people seem to be given a maximum of 2 to start with.  Cost last year was 980 ytl per person for 2 years.  So you could come out on a 3 month´s visa and apply for residency as long as you can meet the conditions - or - you could take a day-trip to one of the Greek Islands (if you are near enough) or if you are in Istanbul for example you could cross over into Bulgaria to renew your visa.  But if you intend to go for citizenship you really need the residency permit.

In Romania do they speak any Russian?


Speaking Russian and Turkish will land you a job at a Resort as a manager.





Hope this helps

Quoting catwoman

Foreigners who fall into the exemption category because of reciprocity, general principles of international law and European Union law do not need a work permit or visa for employment in Turkey. For instance, in the case of Turkey’s accession to the EU, the notion of alien will transform, so the legislation has already been harmonized to ensure adaptation for the future situation.


Does that mean EU passport holders do not need a work permit? {#lang_emotions_bigsmile}

Hm ok. What languages do you speak ?

I myself worked in the foreign department of a hospital, but for that kind of job its easy and necessary to know a few languages and some Turkish would be easy too. Also Ý worked in a pharmacy but my job was translating from Dutch-English-German to Turkish and the other way around, not easy and off course necessary to know quite some turkish.

I worked also as a guide but that cant be the work you want because its only seasonwork and you are looking for the whole year...

I wanted to say if your english is good you can give lessons but also therefor you need Turkish You crazy?
