Our Turkish citizenship lawyers can handle all these procedures for you. Moreover, we can also provide you consultancy about the best method you can use according to your preferences and plans. Here are the six methods you can prefer to get Turkish citizenship or a passport.
You can also be a partner of any real estate or business operating in Turkey to be eligible for these rights. The minimum amount for being a partner to any real estate or business is $500,000. You also need to maintain your partnership for at least three years with an agreement. This was $1,500,000 before.
As PropertyTR, we offer comprehensive services to our clients. Besides helping you to find the best investment for your purpose or preferences, our Turkish citizenship lawyers can also handle all the operations you would like to do after the deal.
All our lawyers are fluent in English and provide consultancy and guidance in all off-plan or second-hand properties in Turkey. We can inform you about all the details, let you know possible setbacks, recommend great investment opportunities, and much more! Our Turkish citizenship lawyers will be at your side before, during, or after the negotiations and offer you seamless operations. We will be at your side until you get your Turkish citizenship.
Besides helping you to acquire your property, we also provide after-sale services. You can contact us whenever you want to get detailed information. Some of these services include;
Our Turkish citizenship lawyers take care of every detail you will need to get your Turkish citizenship, including the conformity certificate. This certificate is issued by the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization for your purchase of Turkish real estate worth $250,000, which was $1,000,000 before. Besides this certification, you also need a no-sale annotation for a minimum of three years to be eligible for a Turkish citizenship application.
Besides directly investing in real estate in Turkey, you can also prefer to get the property ownership or construction servitude to be eligible for this application. In this respect, as PropertyTR, the leading developer in Turkey, we can offer you a wide range of alternatives to choose from. Most of these plans and properties will help you to get your Turkish citizenship without any problems. All our real estate complies with the Turkish regulations and our Turkish citizenship lawyers can handle the entire process on your behalf.
If you have bought your real estate between January 12, 2017, and September 18, 2018, and it was worth $1,000,000 or more, our Turkish citizenship lawyers can also help you to initiate your application and get your citizenship or passport. Additionally, if you have purchased your property after September 19, 2018, and it is worth $250,000 or more, you can also benefit from our services.
The value of the property you are going to purchase must be assessed by a real estate appraiser with a valid license. The Turkish Capital Market Board is the only institution that is authorized to provide these licenses. As PropertyTR, we work closely with the well-known real estate appraisers to complete all the relevant reports you need to get to start your Turkish citizenship application. In this regard, choosing any of our real estates will help you to save time and money in the long run.
Unfortunately, if you are planning to get Turkish citizenship or a passport by investing in real estate in Turkey, it must be at least $250,000. There is no other way than getting citizenship or a passport without fulfilling this requirement. Please be careful about companies that promise you these benefits by letting you invest less than $250,000.
Another way for getting Turkish citizenship is depositing funds to any banks operating in Turkey for a minimum of three years. Our Turkish citizenship lawyers can handle all the procedures on your behalf and enjoy this opportunity by depositing at least $500,000 in your bank account.
You do not even have to spend more than ten minutes to enjoy this opportunity by providing Power of Attorney to any of our Turkish citizenship lawyers. After getting the limited Power of Attorney, our lawyers can open an account in any Turkish bank you like. You can provide this Power of Attorney by visiting any notary public in Turkey or any Turkish embassy in any country.
Please note that you have to commit to keeping your deposit in that account for at least three years. This conformity will be provided by the Turkish Banking Regulation and Supervision Agency.
Our Turkish citizenship lawyers can also help you to prepare your conformity certifications for your bank deposits too. This certification is issued by the Turkish Banking Regulation and Supervision Agency when a foreigner deposits at least $500,000 in any bank operating in Turkey. You also need to commit to keeping the deposit in your account for at least three years for this conformity certification.
You do not have to keep the deposit in United States Dollars. You can open an account in any currency you would like to and deposit at least the equivalent of $500,000 to be eligible for Turkish citizenship or passport application.
As our Turkish citizenship lawyers will inform you in your meeting, you are not obliged to keep this deposit in a single account or currency. You can divide this deposit into parts and keep them in different Turkish banks with different currencies. A new conformity certification must be issued for each account, which our Turkish citizenship lawyers can help you to get.
Moreover, the bank must not be owned by any Turkish businessman. You can deposit your money into any bank or banking branch that is registered and operating in Turkey. In this regard, you can prefer international banks such as ING, BBVA, or QNB.
If you want, you can also apply for Turkish citizenship or a passport by opening a joint account. As your partner may be your spouse, you can also prefer any person you like. Our Turkish citizenship lawyers can handle all these procedures for you as well.
Another important thing to know about these is you can always convert your main currency to any other currency. Unless you keep a minimum of $500,000 worth of currency in your accounts. Moreover, you can also change the investment type and still be eligible for Turkish citizenship or passport. In this regard, you need to make sure that you will not interrupt that minimum three years requirement. Otherwise, BRSA will notify the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Turkey about the interruption and your application may be rejected.
During these three years, you can benefit from all the benefits that Turkish citizens can benefit from by depositing their money in the bank. This also includes the interests and other investment tools. Of course, your agreement with your preferred bank also matters.
Foreigners who are going to deposit at least $500,000 worth of another currency will not have to worry about fluctuations in exchange rates. Your initial investment will be considered and you will not have to worry about your deposit falling under $500,000. Our Turkish citizenship lawyers will inform you about the details in your meeting as well.
You have to block your deposit for three years to be eligible to apply for Turkish citizenship or passport. If somehow you remove this blockage and withdraw money from your account and it falls under $500,000, BRSA will inform the Ministry of Internal Affairs. As a result of this notification, your application can be rejected or if you already got your Turkish citizenship or passport, it can be canceled.
In case you had to experience such problems, then you will not be eligible to apply for Turkish citizenship or passport with any of the six methods for at least three years. However, these restrictions can be lifted by applying to the relevant institutions with reasonable cause. Our Turkish citizenship lawyers can also help you to re-apply.
Depending on which methods you are going to prefer to apply for Turkish citizenship, the documents you need to prepare may vary.
For instance, if you are going to be eligible for this right by depositing money in Turkish banks, then the documents you need are as follows:
The documents you need to get the conformity certifications for your investment type are as follows:
All your documents and procedures will be handled by our Turkish citizenship lawyers. However, for those who are planning to apply on their own, we are going to provide detailed information under this heading. Anyone who is planning to get Turkish citizenship or passport must apply for a short-term residence permit first.
One of the requirements to apply for a short-term residence permit is physically being in Turkey with a valid visa and passport. You need to make sure that your visa will be valid during the day of your appointment.
This is also applicable for those who want to extend their residence permit or visa. Otherwise, you may have to leave the country and return with a valid visa or passport to start your application. Foreigners in Turkey can visit and Directorate of Immigration to initiate their applications or let Turkish citizenship lawyers handle the procedures on their own.
The average waiting time for an appointment is generally varying between two and three months in major cities such as Istanbul, Izmir, and Ankara. Thus, you need to make sure that you will have visa or passport validity until that time. The process takes shorter in smaller cities. It is also worth noting that this waiting period can be as quick as ten days when you invest in any real estate or prefer one of the six methods provided at the beginning of this guide.
Although a short-term residence permit can be granted up to 5 years, in general, it is issued for a year. Once your application is accepted and your residence permit is issued, it will be mailed to your residence address in Turkey within two to four weeks.
If you are going to initiate your Turkish passport application by investing in property in Turkey, then you need to provide the following documents for your application:
Depending on the marital status of the applicant, he/she may have to provide the following documents:
