Latest updates about Turkish citizenship transactions

Turkish citizenship takes a good position globally, as the Turkish passport is ranked between 36th and 39th globally, so there is a great demand from investors for it, especially after the continuous amendments and updates to the laws granting Turkish citizenship.

At the beginning of 2017, the Turkish government, by providing incentives and facilities to foreign investors on its territory, began granting Turkish citizenship to those who invest in a property worth one million dollars. Then, in September 2018, it issued a decision to reduce the value of the property granting Turkish citizenship to 250 thousand dollars.

After the Iranians, Afghans ranked second, Iraqis ranked third, Yemenis ranked fourth, Chinese ranked fifth, Palestinians ranked sixth, Jordanians ranked seventh, Lebanese ranked eighth, Egyptians ranked ninth, and Pakistanis ranked tenth.

But who is entitled to obtain Turkish citizenship other than the holders of the title deed investors?

A question on the minds of many. Is the foreign investor alone, after the new decision that encouraged foreigners to invest in Turkey, entitled to apply for citizenship? Or can other people connected to the investor also get it?

According to the latest legal amendment, a foreigner who invests in Turkish real estate by owning a hotel, land, commercial store, office or residence with a value of at least 250 thousand dollars, can apply for Turkish citizenship.

If according to the Turkish Nationality Law, who has the right to apply for citizenship other than the investor himself?

The foreign investor has the right to apply for Turkish citizenship, and his spouse and children under the age of eighteen have the right to apply for citizenship.

For those who are over the age of 18 of the applicant’s children, they do not obtain citizenship in the same process, and they apply for it separately. The children of the applicant who are under the age of eighteen do not wait for three years to obtain citizenship. And they get it automatically after the applicant gets it.

Thus, the investor's family also has the right to apply for citizenship, according to the conditions.
