At the end of 2018, the Turkish government approved decisions aimed at facilitating the mechanism for obtaining Turkish citizenship for foreign investors, with the aim of stimulating the movement of the economy and attracting foreign capital to it, and this through three main ways, which are:

- Finally: owning one or more properties valued at $ 400,000. 
Looking at the previous options, we find that real estate ownership was the least expensive among them, and even the fastest to acquire citizenship .. But what are the conditions for obtaining Turkish citizenship by real estate investment

- firstly, to be able to apply for the Turkish citizenship, you must buy a property or group of real estate with a value of at least 400 thousand dollars, bearing in mind that it must not be resold before 3 years have passed.

How do I and my family get Turkish citizenship? 

One of the questions that we often get is: If I buy a property worth 400 thousand dollars, can I grant my wife and children Turkish citizenship? 
Yes, of course, in this case, Turkish citizenship can be granted to the wife and children who are under the age of 18, but those who exceed the legal age of children are not entitled to obtain citizenship with the rest of the family. 

Obtaining Turkish citizenship in return for a property under construction or in installments 

Some believe that citizenship cannot be acquired when buying a property under construction, while that is possible, but provided that the first payment is equal to the required amount (400 thousand dollars) and if the first payment is less than that, you must wait until installments are paid in a total that meets the required number and is You have bank receipts of the stipulated value ($ 400,000) and then apply for citizenship. 

Can the amount be $ 400,000 as a down payment for several properties under construction? 

Many of Ramzy Real Estate's clients bought separate apartments within complexes that are still under construction. The total payments amounted to more than 400 thousand US dollars, and they were able to start the process of obtaining Turkish citizenship, in order to achieve the basic condition, which is the fulfillment of the conditional amount, but unfortunately this is no longer possible. As the year 2023 came and brought with it many new amendments to the law on obtaining Turkish citizenship in return for real estate investment, so what are they? Follow up ..

Amendments to the Turkish Nationality Law 01/2/2023:

The amendments that were put forward in relation to the law of obtaining Turkish citizenship for real estate investors revolve around 5 essential points: 

1 - Buying real estate from one developer! 

If the investor intends to buy more than one property with the value required to obtain Turkish citizenship "400,000$", he will not be able to choose separate properties in different complexes, but he must buy from one developer in one complex or building. And to submit a contract certified by the Turkish Notre that includes the real estate he bought with the aim of obtaining citizenship, or what is known as the "promise-to-sale contract". 

2 - Citizenship will not be granted to those who share ownership! 

Those wishing to share shares in the ownership of a real estate can no longer obtain citizenship together, but rather one person and his family will obtain it if he is married. As for the other, he will not be able to acquire citizenship, no matter how much his share of the property is. 

3 - It is no longer possible to merge the tapu with the promise to sell contract! 

It will not be possible to submit a title deed for a ready-made property with a contract promising to sell a property under construction with the aim of obtaining Turkish citizenship. Rather, the nationality file must include only title deeds for ready real estate or a promise contract for real estate under construction. 

4 - You have to buy from a Turkish company or a person of Turkish origin exclusively! 

Foreigners who have acquired Turkish citizenship through investment cannot resell their real estate to another foreigner with the aim of granting them citizenship. 
Rather, those wishing to acquire citizenship should choose a person of Turkish birth and origin, in the event that the property is re-sold or a Turkish construction company. If it is new. 

5 - Submitting the DAP document via the KEP! 

The delivery of the currency exchange document or what is known as the DAP BELGESI through the KEP or what is known as the e-mail registered by the bank has become direct to the Land Registry Department, and it has become a condition to add the number of the Land Registry mentioned in it to the DAP document to complete the process.
