Top Turkish companies’ workers to get UK visa easily
ISTANBUL - Anatolia News Agency
DHA photoThe United Kingdom is to ease the visa restrictions for the employees of 500 companies, including Turkish firms with the highest turnovers and UK-based firms operating in Turkey, UK General Consul to Istanbul Leigh Turner announced on April 12.
He said that the workers of the listed 500 companies would get visas by just presenting a document that proved their workplace.
“This scheme will facilitate conducting business between Turkey and the United Kingdom further,” Turner said.
Elaborating the “GREAT” campaign, which is formulated to explore ways to deepen trade and business links between the two countries, he recalled Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and the UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s pledge to double bilateral trade between the two countries.
“A way to achieve this is enabling Turkish companies to make investments in the UK and British companies to make investments in Turkey,” he said.
The general consul is particularly focused on large infrastructure investment plans in Turkey.
