    Apart from the professions listed above, some other occupations have been prohibited to foreigners according to the provisions of the "Law Regarding Trades and Services Reserved to Turkish Citizens in Turkey" no.2007 of 11 June 1932. Foreigners for example, may not work as itinerant salesmen, musicians, photographers, barbers, typesetters, middlemen, clothing and shoe manufacturers, stock brokers, sellers of State monopoly products, interpreters and tourist guides, transport workers, or construction, iron, and wood workers.

    basically ..yes!! :shock:

    In a way it is good that the country does this, keeps the jobs for its natives, if we did this in the UK, maybe we would not have so much unemployment!!! also the foreign workers who do come here may earn a decent wage, instead of the poor money that they are given. (not in all jobs...but agricultural, factorys etc..)

    whewre i live we have a huge Portugese poulation, they all work on the farms, picking the fruit & vegetable, packing it etc... the money they get paid is so low. A british person doing the same job gets paid almost £1 an hour more in some cases (so i have been told) its discusting!!!! :twisted:

    huh...no offence but that sounds a bit dicey. Would hate to go over there and then get kicked out. Had been thinking about going over there to work cos long-distance relationships suck eggs. While wages are better here, my boyfriend has more work in Turkey so I was kinda leaning in the direction of moving there. Not so sure now tho....

    Your right there Catherine!!

    Its a huge risk to take! & as much as long distance relations do 'suck eggs':D The risk of being deported & not being allowed back into the country for 5 years sends out big warning signs to me!!

    5 years without Turkey ...No thanks!! :doh:

    Funny how that works... Canada has the same employment restrictions, but at the end of the day, instead of limiting who can do what where, a forreigner gets about double what a local would at the same job (minimum wages by law), thereby ensuring that...

    a. only the best is employed
    b. employers think twice about hiring a foreigner

    It all depends on what kind of field you want to work in, and what kind of education you have. In some higher level jobs it's not so hard to find something, especially in the big cities. For some functions, organizations are looking for people on foreign job websites! Kusadasi is very tourist industry oriented, so it's hard to find anything there though.
