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.

Turkish Citizenship - Property valuation
After deciding the right 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 the aim of the purchase is to acquire Turkish citizenship, so that title deed officers put gloss (exegesis) to prevent selling this property for 3 years.

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

Turkish Citizenship - step 3 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.

4. The final step of getting your Turkish citizenship
