Obtain Turkish Citizenship by Investing in Profitable Assets

Turkish Citizenship Programs offers several profitable investment options for those who want to become Turkish Citizens and this is what makes the program so popular among foreign investors.

One of the 3 investment options is property acquisition from $250,000. To obtain citizenship under this option, the investor is required to buy commercial or residential property. In fact, it is possible to acquire several properties, as long as the total amount complies with the requirements. There is a deed restriction, that the property cannot be sold for 3 years from the date of purchase, however, the investors can let the property for rental income or sell it after 3 years from acquiring citizenship. This will not affect the applicant’s and applicant’s family citizenships. The important point to keep in mind us that the same property cannot be used twice to qualify for Turkish Citizenship. Find out more about the best places to buy property in Turkey HERE.

Another investment option is Capital Transfer From $500,000. The investor can make a fixed-asset investment that should be confirmed by the Ministry of Industry and Technology or deposit $500.000 cash in a Turkish bank for a minimum of 3 years. It is also possible to make $500,000 investment into government bonds with the potential to receive interest as income. All of the abovementioned investment requires to be kept for 3 years.
