How to apply for Turkish Citizenship by Investment

To obtain Turkish Citizenship by investment, you should purchase real estate in Turkey with a minimum total value of $400.000. You may choose to invest in one or multiple properties as long as the required amount is reached. Our clients typically choose to invest in multiple properties with guaranteed rental income. As Turkey Expert, we'll be presenting you with the most suitable options to maximize your investment while having an easy exit strategy when it's time to sell your properties.
Turkish Citizenship by Investment
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. Another important point is the seller must be a Turkish Citizen, and the payment should be through a bank transfer.

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

About 15 days after the purchase, the 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 the appointment of Turkish citizenship. 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.
