IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Turkey has shut down its online work permit application system as it transitions to a new online “KEP” system that is not yet fully functional because of technical problems in integrating the new system.
What does the change mean? Applications cannot currently be lodged under the old system, though authorities have suggested they may reactivate accounts under the old system for a grace period until the technical issues with the new system are resolved.
BAL Analysis: Employers should anticipate delays to the lodging of work permit applications while authorities switch to the new system. BAL is following this development and will report additional information as it becomes available.
This alert has been provided by the BAL Global Practice group and Bener in Turkey. For additional information, please contact your BAL attorney.
