Citizenship Program


The Türkiye Citizenship by Investment Program provides citizenship of a country with links to both Asia and Europe and access to the markets in both regions.

Türkiye Citizenship by Investment


The Türkiye Citizenship by Investment Program (previously named the Turkey Citizenship by Investment Program) was launched in January 2017 to attract foreign direct investment to and boost growth in the country’s real estate sector. The program allows applicants to choose from a number of different types of economic contributions to Turkish society, thereby developing the country’s economy.

With the city of Istanbul embracing Europe and Asia on the Bosphorus Strait, Türkiye is a transcontinental Eurasian country. Its location at the crossroads of Europe and Asia makes it a country of significant geostrategic importance.

Procedures and time frame of the Türkiye Citizenship by Investment Program


After applicants have chosen the qualifying investment option, a residence permit application shall be made on the family’s behalf. The main applicant is then required to open a bank account in Türkiye.

Once all application documents have been prepared (including applicable certifications and translations), the investment can be completed and the documents submitted to the government. Once the application has been received by the government, the review process will begin and an interview may be requested. Applications are typically approved within 120 days, following which the citizenship documents are issued. The passport application can then be submitted.

Please note that Turkish gift and inheritance taxes apply to worldwide assets held by Turkish citizens. We recommend that you seek appropriate professional advice in this regard.
