ABOUT TURKEY

Turkey, country that occupies a unique geographic position, lying partly in Asia and partly in Europe. Throughout its history it has acted as both a barrier and a bridge between the two continents. Turkey is situated at the crossroads of the Balkans, Caucasus, Middle East, and eastern Mediterranean. It is among the larger countries of the region in terms of territory and population, and its land area is greater than that of any European state. Nearly all of the country is in Asia, comprising the oblong peninsula of Asia Minor—also known as Anatolia (Anadolu)—and, in the east, part of a mountainous region sometimes known as the Armenian Highland.

BENEFITS OF THE TURKISH PROGRAM

Turkish Citizenship by Investment was first introduced in 12.01.2017 and amended significantly on 18.09.2018. Within the scope of this regulation, Turkey will now grant citizenship to foreigners who buy real estate in Turkey worth at least $250.000 under the condition that the property is not sold for at least 3 years. By purchasing a property of valued minimum $250.000 USD in any part of Turkey or making $500.000 capital investment, a foreign investor will be able to get Turkish Citizenship for himself and the family:

  • Citizenship will be granted in 4 months.
  • No requirement to reside in Turkey.
  • Visa-Free access to over 111 countries.
  • E-2 Treaty with the US, offering Turkish the possibility to reside and work with their families in the USA. (Click here for more info).
  • No tax on worldwide income.
