hi my name is prashant, working in an MNC bank, i moved to istanbul last year. and this year my wife has also joined me. wanted to know if she can also get a job in istanbul. she had been working in bank back in india. the reason why i am asking this question, is that i have been informed that as per turkish regulation, if the expat is working, than the spouse cannot get a job unless one of them have completed min 5 years of work in istanbul
