We are American expats relocating to Turkey to open a small business. Our plan is to spend the first year learning Turkish, and then proceed to opening the business. As such, we would like some advice on the following?

1) How long are Education Visas issued for?

2) What are the costs for an Education Visa?

3) Do we need to be enrolled in a language school before we obtain the Visa?

4) Can a private tutor provide substantiating documentation to obtain the Visa?

5) Is it better to arrive on an Education Visa whilst undergoing language training, and then convert to a normal residency permit? Or should we go straight to the Residence Permit?

6) How should we approach obtaining Visas for our two teenage children? (i.e. - Will they require their own, or are they covered by ours? What type of Visa do they need? Etc...)

We appreciate all advice, but would prefer to hear from those who have first hand experience with a similar situation. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Hello ,

Firstly wish you success.

You shoul enroll Turkish Course (Generally all foreigners attend TÖMER which is registered turkish coure ) and Tömer will give you a kind of invitation. Whith this invitation you should apply for student visa from your own country. When you arrive to Turkey you will go to Regulatary (Emniyet ) with your student entry visa, and student id (will be given when you start course) and some other docs (like home addres....) and the will give you new docs (ikametgah) for resident. Later on, when you open ypur business you can switch your student resident to working one. There are some consultant companies doing this. I was student and when I start to work here our company applied for me. For your family, they will have family resident of student one.

FYI

These are great questions. I, too, am curious about these things.

Just out of curiosity, what type of small business do you plan on opening?

Thanks and best wishes!
