A Turkish national legally employed in the UK may also apply for a visa extension in order to stay longer. To qualify for an extension, they must already have a valid visa (for example. B an au pair visa or a Tier 1, Tier 2 or Tier 4) visa that allows them to work legally in the UK and must also have worked (continuously) for the same employer for one year. If the applicant successfully applys for a visa extension, he or she may stay in the UK as a Turkish ECAA worker. However, an applicant in this category cannot apply for permanent residence. The visa regime is based on the 1963 Ankara Agreement between Turkey and the European Economic Community, a predecessor of the EU. The system was used by Turks who came to the UK to create new businesses. Yes, yes. There has been some turbulence regarding requests for comparison for those living under the Ankara agreement, but the DEAA annex on immigration rules, introduced in July 2018, makes it clear that Turkish businessmen can settle in the UK (get). Yalcin said that since 2000, nearly 30,000 Turkish businessmen have entered the UK on the Ankara visa (ECCA business visa) and that more than 3,000 Turks have benefited from it in the first half of 2019.
The records of 20,000 Turkish citizens have applied for a special British business visa this year which, according to data published by BBC Turkish, would eventually grant them a British stay. According to the Turkish ambassador in London, a special British government visa for Turkish businessmen and their families will continue normally until the end of the Brexit phase. The European Community Association Agreement (ECAA) allows Turkish nationals to settle in the UK as workers or in a company under the Ankara Agreement. It also allows them to obtain residence rights in the UK. The old 1973 provisions apply to all ECAA applications, which relaxes the application process. However, an applicant is prevented from receiving the ECAA if it is found to be in violation of UK immigration law. In these circumstances, the applicant is subject to the points-based system currently in place. More than 10,000 people living in Turkey applied for visas in the first nine months of 2020, more than the total number of registrations in the last 10 years. If you keep in mind that it is now time to act if you are thinking of applying for this visa.
If you leave it too late and don`t have enough time to get a quality business plan, you have a weak application. A first Turkish business visa is usually valid for 12 months. Under this first grant, the extension of the visa requirement for Turkish entrepreneurs is generally granted for a further three years, as long as the transaction is ongoing and continues to operate in the Uk.
