In line with the new regulations, foreigners who satisfy the below mentioned investment requirements will be able to obtain Turkish Citizenship.

  • Option (A) stipulates that a minimum amount of property investment shall be made for 400k. USD. This amount has been reduced from $1m to 400k USD (or the equal value in Turkish Lira or Euro), on the condition to not sell the property within the next 3 years.
  • Option (B) is to Deposit $500k. USD in cash (or the equal value in Turkish Lira or Euro) for at least 3 years in one of the Turkish Banks.
  • Option (C) is to set up a business and create jobs for at least 50 Turkish employees, confirmed by the Ministry of Labor and Social Security.

The most cost-effective option for investors to qualify for the Turkish citizenship program is to buy property in the country for a minimum value of $400,000. The property can be leased to provide rental income. After 3 years from acquiring citizenship investors can re-sell their property.

On virtue of this law, it is possible to obtain Turkish Citizenship for the Investor (Main Applicant) as well as for family members: spouse and children below 18 years old when proceeding with one of the above mentioned investment options, and once the required criteria are met.
