Turkey Citizenship

The Turkish citizenship by investment program is one of the most popular ones among investors.

Cosmopolitans can obtain second citizenship by investing $400,000+ in the country’s economy. There are five options available: purchase of real estate or units of an investment fund or bonds, participation in the share capital of a Turkish company, and opening of a deposit in a Turkish bank.

The purchase of real estate is the most demanded option. Real estate prices grow by 15 to 25% per year in Turkey. As a result, home sales to investors grew by 43.5% in 2021.

Family members such as a spouse and children can get second citizenship in Turkey along with the investor.

An investor can return the money three years after obtaining citizenship in Turkey — by selling the investment real estate. There are no sale restrictions.



No residence requirements

There are no requirements for the period of actual residence in Turkey before and after obtaining citizenship.

Terms of investment program

1 Real estate purchase

95% of investors choose real estate purchases because prices grow by 15 to 25% every year in the Turkish real estate market. Over the past two years, the cost of apartments in US dollars has doubled.

Investors can purchase housing or commercial facilities, land, or a share in a real estate project. After three years, the object can be sold to anyone, not necessarily to an investor who also wants to participate in the Turkish citizenship program.
