To live and work in Istanbul


I've been in Istanbul for almost 3 months now, with a tourist visa, which means it will end soon. I really would like to stay longer, as I really enjoyed my stay here. I'm am considering moving to Istanbul, to work here and also bring my daughter along, who is already in university.

What can I do, in order to get a resident visa? I want to have the chance of looking into things but I want to do it from here. I am currently employed (in Portugal) and I could continue working on the assignment that brought me here, for a while at least.

Thanks in advance. Regards,
