One crucial point is the valuation must be done by a certified company, and the money should be brought to Turkey by customs or bank account in the last six months before the application.

3. Receiving the Certificate of Conformity and the Investor Resident documents

The application rendez-vous might be given after about 15 days.
Besides property documents, there'll be the following documents required; the translation of the applicant's passport, birth certificate, photos and the marriage certificate.
