The Turkish government has not hesitated to provide a lot of facilities through which it can attract a lot of foreign investments and those wishing to obtain Turkish citizenship, but what are the stances it took and indicated that it stood by them? What are the amendments made to the Turkish law in their interest?

Through the following article, the editorial team at Binaa Real Estate Company will inform you about the many facilities that the Turkish government has been keen to provide. We wish you an enjoyable and interesting reading.


Turkish citizenship laws:

In late 2018, the Turkish government issued many laws and amendments to the law on obtaining Turkish citizenship, as follows:

1 - Those who wish to obtain it in exchange for real estate investment must pay only 250 thousand US dollars instead of one million US dollars, and since then, the foreign influx to Turkey has increased significantly.

2 - As for those who wish to obtain citizenship in exchange for financial investment, the amount invested must be no less than 500 thousand US dollars instead of two million dollars.

3 - Those who want to obtain citizenship in return for a bank deposit, the amount in their possession must not be less than 500 thousand US dollars instead of three million dollars and for a period of no less than three years.

4 - It can be obtained in exchange for employing 50 Turkish people instead of 100 people.

As for the laws issued regarding obtaining Turkish citizenship in return for real estate investment during this year, they raise the value of the property suitable for obtaining it from two hundred and fifty thousand US dollars to four hundred thousand dollars. It should be noted in this context that this amendment did not affect at all the decisions of investors to buy their own real estate in Turkey and the reason for this is their absolute belief in the importance of taking this step within the Turkish lands and the many advantages that can be obtained through it.


The importance of citizenship through real estate investment:

If you look closely, you will find that most real estate buyers in Turkey or a large percentage of them aim through real estate investment in Turkey to obtain Turkish citizenship because they will have achieved two goals at the same time; Turkish citizenship and real estate investment. What you do not know is that any property in Turkey is a profitable investment project and it is successful and distinguished, especially if it has specifications that help the success of this step, such as the strategic location, the picturesque view, the modern infrastructure, and others.


Conditions for obtaining citizenship in exchange for real estate investment:

Surely you know that one of the easiest ways to obtain Turkish citizenship is by investing in real estate, as it can only take a period of time ranging from 3 to 6 months as a maximum, but this does not prevent that there are many conditions that must be met with the property, which are:

-Its price should not be less than 400 thousand US dollars, as mentioned above.

-Commitment not to sell it before the lapse of at least three years.

-That the purchased property has never been relied upon to obtain Turkish citizenship.

-That the full price is paid through a bank in Turkey, and the price is not delivered by hand.

-The property must be purchased from a Turkish citizen or from a Turkish construction company.

-Extracting the real estate appraisal document, which is necessary to control the price of real estate and prevent sellers from tampering with it.

(Important note: Violation of any of the previous clauses makes the property unsuitable for applying for Turkish citizenship, so you must pay attention to each of them and focus well with any step you take).

In this context, it is necessary to point out an important thing, which is that during the three years that the property cannot be sold or disposed of, it can be rented to benefit from a fixed return over those years, and after their expiry, it is possible to resell and benefit from the price difference that will result between the buying and selling processes, and often it will be a distinguished profitable because real estate prices, not only in Turkey but in various countries of the world, remain in constant change depending on several factors, the most important of which are the buying and selling movement, economic recovery, political stability, high population density and many other factors.

As for the reasons that push the Turkish government to provide all these facilities in order to attract all those foreign capital to it, this is reflected positively on its various sectors and fields without exception and thus helps it to enter the club of the big ten and achieve important results at the global level through which it excels many from the developed world countries.
