TURKISH CITIZENSHIP APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS

Minimum requirements for exceptional acquisition of Turkish citizenship and recent changes;

19.09.2018 According to the regulation amendment published in the Turkish Official Newspaper on 19.09.2018, conveniences have been introduced about acquiring Turkish citizenship as exceptional

Foreigners who wish to stay in Turkey for longer than the period of visa or visa exemption are required to obtain a residence permit or work permit and foreigners who will claim Turkish citizenship are required to stay in Turkey for periods determined by the Turkish citizenship law No. 5901 and to meet the minimum requirements set by the ministry.

With Decision No. 9601 dated 12.12.2016, certain clauses have been added to the requirements for the exceptional acquisition of Turkish citizenship. In this context, under certain amounts and conditions, those who invest in fixed capital, buy real estate, create employment, hold deposits in Turkish banks, and purchase government debt instruments can apply for Turkish citizenship as an exception.

After the relevant decision date, many applications for Turkish citizenship were processed and finalized. However, foreigners who find the minimum amount required for the application to be high have not been able to take action.

In this context, the requests were evaluated and the decision to amend the Regulation on the Implementation of the Turkish Citizenship Law was published in the Official Newspaper with Decision No. 106 dated 19.09.2018.

With the decision, the following changes were made in the investment amounts and in some circumstances below:

The requirement for a fixed capital investment of at least US $ 2,000,000 has been reduced to US $ 500,000. (the relevant investment must be determined by the Ministry of Industry and Technology.)

En az 1.000.000 Amerikan doları tutarında taşınmaz tutarı 250.000 Amerikan Doları veya karşılığı döviz/Türk Lirası’na düşürülmüştür. (Taşınmazın tapu kayıtlarına üç yıl satılmaması şerhi koyulmak şartıyla satın aldığı Çevre ve Şehircilik Bakanlığınca tespit edilmelidir.)

The requirement to create employment of at least 100 people has been reduced to 50 people. (The employment created should be determined by the Ministry of Family, Labour and Social Services.)

The requirement to hold deposits of at least US $ 3,000,000 in banks operating in Turkey has been reduced to US $ 500,000. (It is necessary to keep the deposits in the relevant bank for 3 years and this situation should be determined by the Banking Regulation and Supervision Agency.)

The purchase of government debt instruments amounting to at least US $ 3,000,000 was reduced to US $ 500,000. (Condition of 3 years without selling must be determined by the Ministry of Treasury and Finance.)

In addition, it has been determined that foreigners identified by the Capital Markets Board (SPK), can apply for exceptional Turkish Citizenship, provided that they purchased "real estate investment fund participation share" or "venture capital investment fund participation share" in the amount of US $ 500,000 with the condition of holding it for at least 3 years.

How does the process off applying to Turkish Citizenship work?

Your claim for Turkish citizenship is processed by purchasing real estate over USD 250,000 and applying to the General Directorate of Land Registry and Cadastre (TKGM). The General Directorate of Land Registry and Cadastre checks that the real estate sold is worth at least USD 250,000. The Land Registry gives approval for citizenship between 3 and 7 days. As soon as your application is approved, we will apply to the immigration office for a residence permit without making an appointment. After the approval of the immigration office, we will apply to the General Directorate of Population and Citizenship Affairs with the approval paper and residence permit within the same day. All this process after the land registry application is followed in Istanbul offices. Your application will be completed within 30 days.

How should I calculate USD ve TL rates?

TKGM (General Directorate of Land Registry and Cadastre), calculates the value of the real estate in USD at the effective sales rate of the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey at the date of the transaction.

How soon will the citizenship process be concluded?

If the documents required for citizenship applications are complete, the process is completed within 90-120 days.

Is there any critical point to know about?

The ministry wants to make sure the minimum value is 250,000 USD. Chartered real estate appraisers value real estate to prevent price fraud. So there can be deviations of up to 20% between the sale price and the valuation. Therefore, Başak Consultancy recommends that you make calculations and buy real estate considering this situation.

Do I need to pass any stages or tests for citizenship?

No.

Will I definitely get citizenship when I meet all the requirements?

The citizenship confirmation process is linked to verification and certainty through the National Security Archives that you do not pose a threat to national security.
