Istanbul is one of the most important and commercial regions in the world, and numerous businesslike districts in Istanbul are said to compete with many of the world’s commercial hubs. The districts of Levent, Maslak, Gertape, Zincirlikuyuand, and Esenyurt, which include a significant number of commercial and business complexes, are the most densely populated with offices and businesses. 

The entrance of a significant number of Arab and international businesses and investors seeking to establish centers and branches for their offices and companies in these areas is being seen in these districts. According to a study by Cashman & Wakefield Real Estate in the United States, more than half of the offices and commercial businesses started in Istanbul are in the aforementioned areas in the city’s European section. 

However, we must first verify the Turkish work permission. A permit is required if you wish to rent office space in Istanbul and establish a company in Turkey. In comparison to other European nations, the procedure is simple and quick. 

Turkish Work Permit

Foreigners must apply at a consulate of the Republic of Turkey in the nation where they are a citizen or permanent resident if they are filing an application from abroad. A work contract, letter of assignment, or document indicating business partnership should be included to the application. Within ten business days after the candidate’s application to a consulate, the employers in Turkey must make an online application and submit the necessary information and documentation to the Ministry of Family, Labour and Social Services, either in person or by mail. The processes for work permit applications submitted abroad will be carried out electronically by the Republic of Turkey’s consulates and the ministry. 

Foreigners whose work permit applications are accepted by the Ministry of Family, Labor, and Social Services must enter Turkey within 180 days after the date the work visa is given. Foreigners who possess residence permits with a remaining period of at least six months, or their employers, may submit work permit applications in Turkey, with the exception of residence permits granted for study in Turkey. Foreigners who fall under this category are not needed to apply to the Republic of Turkey’s consulates. Within six business days after submitting the online application, the necessary papers must be delivered to the Ministry of Family, Labour and Social Services, either in person or by mail. 

Now we can look at some of Istanbul’s best working areas and available offices to help you decide where to establish your company!

The Kagithane Gardens is a commercial area in Istanbul that focuses on the working and living characteristics of its users and addresses its presence as a new kind of contextual and urban approach: Our aim to have the structure interact with its surroundings has shaped it.
