Coming to Turkey to Start a Business

MP3 audio guide

This interview features Başak Yıldız Orkun, Managing Partner at Orkun & Orkun (info@orkunorkun.com) and John Howell, Editor & Founder of Guides.Global (editor@guides.global).

It was recorded in March 2017. The law and practice in Turkey change all the time. Our guides are updated as frequently as possible - typically every three years - but may be out of date.

Our guides are prepared by professionals from many countries. They are, of necessity, both brief and general and can take no account of your personal circumstances. They are intended to be a good introduction to the subject BUT ARE NO SUBSTITUTE FOR PROPER PROFESSIONAL ADVICE, which our contributors will usually be happy to provide upon request.

The advice and opinions contained in the guides are those of the speaker and are not necessarily those of Guides.Global.

Introduction

If you want to live in Turkey and work for yourself, rather than someone else, you've got two choices: get a self-employed visa, or a visa to start a company (which you then work for). Which is best? How do you go about getting a visa?
