  • Despite the recent political conflict in Turkey, government immigration processing continues at this time. The Ministry of Labor has continued to process work permits and immigration authorities have remained open. However, general adjudication delays are expected.

    Travel to and from Turkey has been affected. For example, flights to Turkey from the United States have been cancelled until further notice, and flights to and from other countries have been diverted or delayed.

    What This Means for Employers and Foreign Nationals

    Foreign nationals in Turkey and those planning to travel to Turkey should contact their Fragomen immigration professional to determine any changes in the current processing of work permits and immigration applications, and to verify travel disruptions.

    Employers with employees in Turkey should plan for the security of their workforce.
