1. Citizenship by real estate Investment

One of the most common ways to get Turkish citizenship is purchasing a property with a minimum value of $250.000. In this way, you can easily move to Turkey with your family and get a Turkish passport. Properties values are increasing continuously because of the growth of cities and people's interest in moving to Turkey. Next to the benefits of Turkish Citizenship, you'll also enjoy the property price appreciation on the property you purchased.

Keep in mind that you cannot sell the property for the next three years after applying for a passport. But the good news is that there is no limitation about the property type. You can buy a single property or multiple properties, also residential or commercial. As long as the purchase price is above 250.000 USD, the property type is not limited. You're also allowed to rent out the properties and enjoy the rental income. 

Fortunately, our experts with many years of experience in real estate can help you find the best properties in Turkey based on your budget and needs.
