Costs of Turkey Citizenship
Acquiring Turkish Citizenship by Investment is possible by investing in one or more properties in Turkey.
The citizenship program is comprised of three stages:
- Purchase of real estate
- Acquiring a residence permit
- Receiving passports
1) Investment - Purchase of Real Estate
Every foreign individual that fulfils the conditions set forth in the law can apply for the Turkish Citizenship by investing a minimum required sum in one or more properties in Turkey. In addition, there are other costs that need to be covered.
2) Acquiring a residence permit
Once the real estate transaction is completed the investor will obtain the title deed. The Land Registry Office will then prepare a “Certificate of Conformity” that proves that the investment was made in accordance with the law. You can apply for a residence permit and have the right to renew it until the competition of the citizenship process.
3) Receiving passports
After acquiring the residence permit, the investor and his family have the right to apply for a citizenship to the Civil Registration and Nationality office.
