We are very happy to advise & help clients in obtaining Turkish citizenship by property investment. This can offer many advantages to buyers, including the right to a second passport, for both you and your immediate family members, plus of course having the same benefits/advantages of Turkish citizens if you plan to reside here permanently.
The process of applying for nationality is short, and we will assist you along the way, from choosing the right property, to helping to arrange all paperwork and applications.
Turkey announced its citizenship by investment programme in 2016. It grants residency, citizenship and a second passport to applicants investing either in real estate or a bank deposit. The real estate route is particularly attractive for investors. This requires a property purchase of a minimum of $250,000 + fees, making Turkey one of the lowest cost citizenship by investment programmes on the market. The real estate investment amount was originally set at $1 million but was drastically reduced in September 2018.
Turkey holds some good global connections. They have a E-2 Visa treaty with the USA, which means Turkish citizens are eligible to apply for US residency, through the E-2 Visa programme.
Citizenship of Turkey is granted after 3-6 months following the applicant’s investment. The applicant must hold the investment for a minimum of 3 years.
POINTS TO NOTE
Your application can cover citizenship not just for you, but also for the wife/husband, and any children under the age of 18.
There are no restrictions on nationalities who can apply for citizenship – you can be from any country.
You can purchase more than one property, so long as the total investment exceeds the minimum threshold of $250,000.
The purchase of other types of real estate (for example, commercial property) are also eligible in the scheme.
You will be granted temporary residency whilst your citizenship application is being processed.
Please note that not all properties are suitable for Citizenship application. For example, properties being sold by a foreign seller, and properties which have been owned for less than one year. Please speak to us to for more information on which of our properties are compliant with the current Citizenship by Investment criteria.
