Turkish citizenship for the purchase of real estate in 2023

Turkish Citizenship

At the end of October 2023, it became known that the authorities increased the minimum investment in real estate to obtain a residence permit in Turkey by 2.5 times to $200,000. But not so long ago, an investor could obtain Turkish citizenship for such an investment. Now you can take part in the passport program by purchasing real estate for an amount of $400,000 or more.

Turkey’s passport program is one of the most sought after in the market in 2023. Several factors contribute to this success. Firstly, many investors are ready to connect their lives and business with this country, from where there are many flights to all points of the world. Secondly, the option of purchasing real estate is very attractive. This is a return investment, and the choice of local premium real estate is very wide.

 So, to apply for the Turkish Citizenship by Investment program, you need to purchase real estate in the amount of $400,000 or more. Together with the main applicant, a spouse and children under 18 years of age can receive citizenship.

What kind of real estate can be bought for obtaining Turkish citizenship: 

  • either the cost of one object should not be less than $400,000;

  • or several objects (for example, two apartments for $200,000) must be within the same complex;

  • or real estate within two different complexes, but then they must have a TAPU (certificate of ownership).

Apex Capital Partners will help you select real estate under the Turkish Citizenship by Investment program, taking into account all the requirements. The property can be sold after 3 years, and before that it can be rented out or used for living. Citizenship is obtained completely remotely – biometrics can be submitted to the Turkish Consultation Office when residing in the country. But you will need to pay a visit to Turkey to get a passport. APEX provides full support with visits to the necessary authorities.

A Turkish citizen's passport gives the right to visa-free entry into 110 countries. Including Singapore, Japan, South Korea, Iran, Lebanon, Brazil, Georgia, Qatar.

Turkish citizens can apply for a US E-2 investor visa (non-immigrant visa type) for a period of 5 years and renewable thereafter

The E-2 visa will require a significant investment in a local US company (new or existing). In order to start the procedure for obtaining a visa, you must live in Turkey for at least 3 years after receiving a Turkish passport. This requirement was introduced in 2023 by Joe Biden, the current US President.
