TURKEY: Implementation of new application system causing delays 

As we reported in November 2017, Turkey has implemented a new system for work permit applications which requires all applications to be submitted via Registered E-mail Address Account belonging to the sponsoring company (KEP - kayitli electronik posta). 

Due to technical problems, the online “KEP” system is not yet fully functional and the old online system has been shut down in the transition process which resulted in delays to lodging of work permit applications. The Ministry of Labour (MOL) suggested they may temporarily reopen the old application system until the new system is fully operational. 

How does this affect the client?

Employers of foreign nationals should expect delays during this implementation process.
