About Turkey Citizenship by Investment Program

Like most countries that initiate a Citizenship by Investment program, Turkey launched its investor immigration program in 2018 to attract foreign investment and provide stimulus to its otherwise unperforming real estate sector. The program offers high-net-worth individuals an opportunity to gain citizenship and passport from Turkey by either making an investment in a real estate property or real estate trust. Apart from the real investment options, applicants can also secure a Turkish citizenship by depositing an amount no less than USD 500,000 in a Turkish Bank Account. In just a short time frame, the program has become one of the most sought second citizenship programs due to the reasonable investment requirements and higher rental returns.

With a Turkish passport in hand investors can travel to as many as 110 countries without a visa, including Singapore, Hong Kong, and Japan. Perhaps the biggest benefit of choosing Turkey’s Citizenship by Investment program is that the country has signed a treaty with the US for both the E-1 and E-2 visa programs. Turkish passport holders also have the right to stay and work in the UK provided they either start their own business in the country or secure a job at a UK based company. Additionally for Turkish citizens the route to securing Schengen Visa is easy. At DM Citizenship by Investment, we seek to help high-net-worth individuals from across the world secure a Turkish citizenship through their second citizenship program.
