History of Turkish Citizenship by Investment

In September 2018, the Turkish government announced changes to their Citizenship by Investment Program, which for sometimes was termed as the “Turkey Golden Visa”. These changes meant that buyers can obtain citizenship and a passport from as little as $250,000 USD, down from the original $1,000,000 USD previously. At that time, this program was one of the most affordable and attractive citizenship initiatives around the world, and thousands of investors and migrants obtained citizenship through purchasing real estate. Turkey allows dual nationality, allowing the applicants to keep multiple citizenships alongside their Turkish one.

After 13 June 2022, when you purchase a real estate in Turkey that is worth at least $400,000 USD or more, you can become a Turkish citizen, along your application, your spouse and children under the age of 18, will also be granted Turkish citizenship. Those who are successful in their application will have Turkish citizenship forever and any children born after, will be born as Turkish citizens.
