Work Permits for Syrians
Turkey is to grant work permits to Syrian refugees, an official statement said Jan. 15, in a key move which could allow Syrians to build more prosperous and stable lives in the country.

An announcement in Turkey’s official gazette said that work permits would be granted to refugees who have fled to the country to escape the conflicts in their homeland.

It did not specify nationality, but the measure chiefly applies to the over 2.2 million Syrians who have fled the almost five-year conflict for the safety of Turkey, as well as some 300,000 Iraqis.

Refugees in Turkey are not allowed to work or to be employed in the country without a valid work permit, the government decree published in the gazette makes clear.

In another article it says that only 10% of Syrians are skilled workers so what are the chances of them getting legal work considering Turkish unemployment is in double figures?
