Turkey – Citizenship-By-Investment Program

An investment into real estate of $250,000 US will enable you and your family to obtain Turkish citizenship in as little as 6 months. Property price is determined by the valuation undertaken by The Ministry of Environment and Urbanisation rather than the actual purchase price.

In addition to this there is also a fast track option to gain citizenship in Turkey. This requires a deposit of $500,000 into a Turkish bank account. This amount must remain in the bank account for a minimum of three years

Turkey is located between Eastern Europe and Western Asia, Turkey cultural influences are gained through a mixture of Ancient Greek, Persian and Roman. The iconic Istanbul is an ever growing and established tourist destination with it’s thriving trade and natural beauty. Ankara is Turkey’s cultural capital and is another thriving tourist and settlement location.

The Turkey Citizenship-By-Investment Program offers an entry point to the US through it’s existing E-2 Treaty listing. This allows Turkish Passport holders a highly expedited and consistent successful issuance route into the US.
