Obtaining Turkish citizenship through real estate in Turkey

How to apply for Turkish citizenship?

To apply for Turkish citizenship, you should purchase a property (one or more properties) with a total value over $ 250.000. The valuation must be done by an expert and the money should be brought to Turkey by customs or bank account in the last 6 months before application. The seller must be a Turkish citizen and all the money should be paid by a bank account.

After deciding the property to buy, the progress of expertise and appointment for the title deed signing procedure takes about a week.

 

While buying a property with the purpose of acquiring Turkish citizenship, one should tell title deed officers that he is buying this property to acquire Turkish citizenship, so that title deed officers put gloss (exegesis) to prevent selling this property for 3 years.  

 

About 15 days after the purchase, title deed gives you "uygunluk belgesi" (certificate of conformity) which allows you to apply "yatırımcı ikamet belgesi" (investor resident document), just after the latter, you can apply for appointment of Turkish citizenship, the application rendez-vous might be given after about 15 days.   

 

Beside property documents, you will have to collect several documents, such as the translation of the applicant’s passport, birth certificate, marriage certificate, documents showing their family etc. Thus, bringing the documents with you is strongly advised.   

 

After the application rendez-vous, it takes about 45 days to get Turkish citizenship. The whole process can be done by companies or lawyers, except the last step below. The last step of procedure is giving finger prints and getting your Turkish citizen ID. The whole process takes 2 ½ to 4 months altogether.
