Do you dream of obtaining another nationality? Well, now your dream can come true as you can receive the Turkish passport by purchasing real estate in the country.
Following the amendment of the Turkish Citizenship by Investment Law in 2018, investors became eligible for Turkish nationality by purchasing one or multiple real estate properties whose total value amounts to at least $250,000.
Previously, the value of immovable assets acquired by the buyer needed to amount to $1,000,000, which proves how this amendment is an advantage to prospective investors.
Now, all one needs to do is purchase property and then directly apply for Turkish citizenship.
Keep in mind that:
The owner of the property can only apply for Turkish citizenship after purchasing the property.
Investors are required to keep the property for at least 3 years; no sale can occur before that period.
The time needed for completing all legal procedures associated with obtaining citizenship is 90 days from the date of purchasing the property.
The property owner can also obtain Turkish citizenship for his/her spouse and children under 18 years of age.
The Turkish passport offers several advantages, where it is ranked as the 39th most powerful passport in the world and enables its holder to enter:
More than 72 countries without the hassle of applying for a visa
More than 42 countries where visas are granted upon arrival at the destination's airport.
7 countries with an electronic visa.
