Leading Turkish Immigration Lawyers
Turkish immigration law refers to the Turkish statutes, regulations, and legal precedents governing immigration into and deportation from Turkey. Strictly speaking, it is distinct from other matters such as naturalization and citizenship, although they are sometimes conflated.
The Republic of Turkey frequently maintains laws that regulate both the rights of entry and exit as well as internal rights, such as the duration of stay, freedom of movement, and the right to participate in commerce or government
Immigration laws vary around the world and throughout history, according to the social and political climate of the place and time, as the acceptance of immigrants sways from the widely inclusive to the deeply nationalist and isolationist.
