Discover the Gateway to Global Mobility: Turkey's Citizenship by Investment Program

Turkey's Citizenship by Investment (CBI) program offers a unique and powerful opportunity for investors and their families to gain a second citizenship, opening doors to global mobility, business opportunities, and a high quality of life.

Key Benefits of Turkish Citizenship

  1. Visa-Free Travel: Enjoy visa-free or visa-on-arrival access to 126 countries, including Japan, Singapore, and South Korea, enhancing global mobility and business opportunities.
  2. Schengen Area Access: Turkish citizens are eligible for a C-2 Schengen visa, allowing for travel across Schengen countries for up to 90 days within any 180-day period.
  3. E-2 Visa Eligibility for the USA: After three years of residence, Turkish citizens can apply for the E-2 Investor Visa, enabling them and their families to live and work in the USA.
  4. Comprehensive Benefits: Turkish citizenship offers the right to live, work, and study in Turkey, visa-free travel to over 120 countries, and the possibility of passing citizenship to future generations

Considerations for Investors

  • Dual Citizenship: Turkey allows its citizens to hold multiple citizenships, provided the other countries also permit it.
  • Family Inclusivity: Spouses and children of investors are eligible for Turkish citizenship, with no additional investment required.
  • Transparent Fees: A government fee of $574 applies per family member under the citizenship program.
  • Investment Flexibility: The required investment can be made in various forms without depending on the investor's family composition.

Investment Routes

  1. Real Estate Investment: A favored choice, necessitating a $400,000 minimum investment in real estate. Although combining multiple properties to meet the investment threshold is no longer permitted, the investment in housing, commercial facilities, or a qualifying land plot is viable. After three years, the property can be sold, albeit the subsequent buyer is ineligible for the CBI program. The investment in real estate incurs a property tax and a stamp duty tax of around $14,000 for properties valued at $400,000, with the necessity to convert foreign currencies into Turkish Liras to finalize transactions.
  2. Business Investment: This entails injecting at least $500,000 into the capital stock of a Turkish company or generating at least 50 jobs.
  3. Bank Deposit: Committing $500,000 to a Turkish bank, with withdrawal options available after three years. The total can be distributed across several banks operating in Turkey.
  4. Government Bonds and Investment Funds: Engaging $500,000 in government bonds or investment fund units, with sell-off opportunities post three years.

Steps to Citizenship

  1. Obtain a Turkish Tax ID and open a bank account in Turkey.
  2. Select and finalize your investment route, potentially involving real estate purchases, business investments, or financial contributions.
  3. Apply for a residence permit, a prerequisite for the citizenship application.
  4. Submit the citizenship application, including all required documents and proof of investment.
  5. Undergo due diligence, with a process taking 3-4 months, after which citizenship is granted.

Family Inclusion and Due Diligence

  • The main applicant can include their spouse, dependent children below 18, and children of any age living with disabilities.
  • Due diligence checks are thorough, ensuring applicants are of good character and have no outstanding visa refusals or illegal stays in Turkey.

Tax and Military Service Considerations

  • Turkish residents are taxed on worldwide income, with progressive rates up to 35%. Real estate taxes, capital gains tax, and inheritance taxes apply, with specific exemptions and rates depending on the property and investment type.
  • Turkish citizenship exempts foreign citizens from mandatory military service.

Conclusion

Turkey's Citizenship by Investment program offers an attractive pathway to global mobility, financial growth, and a secure future for investors and their families. With its strategic location, robust economy, and cultural richness, Turkey presents a compelling case for those looking to expand their horizons and access new opportunities worldwide.
