As a foreign citizen living or planning to live in Turkey, it is important to understand your rights in order to avoid any legal complications. Here are some key rights that you should be aware of:

  1. Residence Permit: Foreign citizens are required to obtain a residence permit within the first month of their arrival in Turkey. This permit allows them to stay in the country legally for a certain period of time.

  2. Work Permit: If you plan on working in Turkey, you will need to obtain a work permit. This permit is issued by the Ministry of Labor and Social Security and is required for both short-term and long-term employment.

  3. Health Care: Foreign citizens are entitled to access the Turkish healthcare system by obtaining a health insurance policy or paying out of pocket. Emergency healthcare services are available for free to all foreign citizens.

  4. Property Ownership: Foreign citizens can legally own property in Turkey. However, there are some restrictions on the types of properties that can be owned and the areas where they can be purchased.

  5. Legal Assistance: Foreign citizens have the right to legal assistance in Turkey, and there are many lawyers and law firms that specialize in providing legal services to foreigners.
