Obtaining the Turkish Citizenship through Property Investment
The Turkish citizenship can be obtained through property ownership by purchasing a commercial or residential property in Turkey worth a minimum of $250,000. The property is not to be sold for a minimum period of 3 years. Spouses and children under 18 can also be included in the citizenship application and you don’t have to reside in Turkey for the application to be approved.
In brief, the process would be as follows:
- Find a property
- Get a tax registration number
- Open a Turkish bank account
- Purchase the property
- Obtain a certificate of conformity
- Apply for Turkish residency
- Apply for Turkish citizenship
