I would like to know how long it took for your work and resident permit to process. I submitted my visa application on September 2nd and my employer said it would take Protected content to process. However, it is now October 5th and it still isn't done. I submitted my application in a country that I am not a citizen of (China; I'm an American), so I'm wondering if that's why it's taking longer? It's really frustrating because I am now in Istanbul on a tourist visa until it is done (my visa for China expired so I had to leave by October 1st).
Any information you can provide is appreciated. Thanks.
