Turkey Citizenship by Investment

Turkey Citizenship by Investment

Turkey being a business-friendly jurisdiction and strategic location has been a driving factor behind the highly popular Turkey Citizenship-by-Investment Program. Strategically located between the Middle East, Central Asia, the Mediterranean, and the Balkans the location again speaks for itself. The exceptional asset-based real estate investment option coming in at USD 250,000 again makes it an easy decision for Global investors. The ability to exit an appreciating investment after a 3-year holding period means funds are not tied up for extended periods. The processing of Citizenship is also extremely expeditious leading to investors gaining the Turkey Passports in as little as 3 months with no physical presence required.

Requirements

Options 1:

Traditionally the most popular option when applying for Turkey Citizenship is through the real estate purchase at the minimum required threshold of USD 250,000. This investment needs to be held for a minimum period of 3-years after which it can be sold off while holding Citizenship indefinitely. Applicants can also rent out the purchased real estate during the holding period meaning a decent rental yield can be generated.

Option 2:

Another option when applying is a fixed bank deposit of USD 500,000 which again needs to be maintained in a Turkish bank account for a minimum 3-year holding period. This option is usually engaged by certain Nationalities who are restricted from purchasing Turkish real estate

Option 3:

The final and least popular option is the option available of starting a Turkey based Company with the requirement of employing a minimum of 50 Turkish Nationals attached
