Getting Turkish Citizenship Has Become Easier for Investors

 Within “Regulations about Changing the Regulations Related to The Application of Turkish Citizenship Law” that is published in the government gazette on 19.09.2018, the minimum real estate price that foreigners had to pay for buying a property in Turkey for getting a Turkish passport has been reduced to $250 thousand from $1 million

Requirements for Turkish Citizenship Application

 4 passport-size photos
 Birth certificate
 Residence permit
 Medical certificate proving you are in good health and physical health
– If applicable, documents proving your relationships with your spouse and children (marriage license, birth certificate for children’s
– Confirmation of regular income e.g. work permit, pension, rental income

The new presumed capital asset amount required for immediate citizenship has been changed from 1 million USD to 250,000 USD.

This requirement means that if you are to apply for Turkish Citizenship based on an asset purchased, than the property value must be at least worth 250,000 USD in Turkey’s current real estate market

The good news is that Turkey accepts the notion of dual citizenship – that is, a citizen of more than one country at the same time. Dual citizenship is possible in Turkey, because there is no international law regarding the non-receipt of foreign nationality for Turkey. Each country has its own laws about nationality and nationality is attributed to individuals on the basis of internal politics. Individuals may choose to dual citizenship by their choice or automatically according to different laws

Automatic acquisition or preservation of foreign nationality does not affect Turkish citizenship. Under Turkish law, there are no conditions for citizens born of two nationalities to force them to choose one of two nationalities at the time of reaching the legal age. The Turkish government has recognized the existence of two citizenship, allowing Turkish citizens to acquire another citizenship if they wish, and citizens should inform Turkish authorities to another country’s citizenship.
