New and Flexible Rules on Road to Turkish CitizenshipWith the decision published on 19.09.2018 on the Turkish Official Gazette, some regulations regarding the transition of foreigners to Turkish citizenship changed. Turkish citizenship will be given directly to foreigners who buy at least 250.000 USD real estate in Turkey.

As this law is declared by Turkish President just yesterday, we expect the new decrees and instructions at Immigration Directorate, Land & Cadastro Registry Directorate and Ministry of Interior Affairs and Tax Office. All instructions of new citizenship rules will be clear within few weeks. We advise you to sign up for the newsletter to get updates evenly to your e-mail.
