How it Works?
At the first step, you should find the right property or properties and we recommend you to take help from Homes and Beyond’s real estate sales specialists to find the most beneficial one for you.
Upon your property purchase, you can apply for your Turkish citizenship via the General Directorate of Land Registry and Cadaster for the title deed application. This will be one of the fastest ways.
If you meet the criteria, which means your purchase is over $250,000 value then your application is sent to the Turkish General Directorate of Population and Citizenship Affairs for final approval.
Then you’ll get an invitation for finalizing the process with your signatures.
And after about a 3 to 6 months period, your Turkish citizenship will be delivered to you, your wife or husband, and your children under the age of 18.
Also note that after you get your Turkish citizenship, it will remain for your entire life and your children will be born as Turkish citizens as well. You can also keep your multiple citizenships along with your Turkish one.
You should keep in your mind that you’ll not be able to sell the property you purchase for 3 years. You can sell your property after this period.
