Turkish Citizenship by Investment
Turkish Citizenship by Investment is a fast track route to obtaining a second passport within months via property investment. This program grants residency, citizenship and a second passport to foreign applicants who invest in real estate within Turkey. The program extends to include spouses, children under 18 years of age and disabled children of any age. As of 07-12-2018 the Turkish government drastically reduced the required minimum investment limit for the citizenship program to $400,000.
Turkish Citizenship by Investment
As part of its greater economic development program, the Turkish government has been actively working to attract more foreign investment to the country. To create an environment conducive to foreigner entrepreneurs and encourage them to invest in Turkey, the government has made several policy changes during the last decade. Citizenship by Investment program is the biggest policy reform to date and has been attracting investors, both individual and corporate, from all over the world to Turkey.
What is Citizenship by Investment?
Introduced in January 2017, Citizenship by Investment is a program designed to increase foreign direct investments in the Turkish economy. It allows foreigners to become Turkish citizens by contributing to the Turkish economy in any of the following ways:
- Real estate investment
- Bank deposit
- Capital investment
Real estate investment in Turkey is the most viable option out of the three as it is the simplest and requires the least amount of investment. It is also the fastest route for acquiring a Turkish passport and provides a visa-free, visa-on-arrival facility for more than 100 countries.
Acquiring Turkish Citizenship by Real Estate Investment
This investment program allows foreigners to acquire Turkish citizenship (for themselves and their families) within just two months by purchasing a property worth at least $400,000. Unlike the citizenship programs of most other counties, the conditions and application process of this real estate investment program are simple and straightforward. The investors neither need to be physically present in the country nor under the obligation of declaring their income or /assets in other countries. Also, investments can be made in both residential and commercial properties.
The only condition for foreigners to maintain their citizenship status is to hold their properties for at least three years. They can, however, sell the properties after the three-year period. They are also allowed to generate a good ROI on their investments in the form of rental income.
Lastly, the real estate investment program of Turkey also allows the property buyers to relocate to the UK and USA under the visa categories available for Turkish nationals, such as Turkish Businessperson visa for the UK and E-2 investor for the USA.
