Among investors, the Turkish citizenship by investment program is one of the most popular.

Cosmopolitans who contribute $400,000 or more in the economy of the country can earn second citizenship. Purchase of real estate, units of an investment fund or bonds, participation in the share capital of a Turkish firm, and creating a deposit in a Turkish bank are the five alternatives accessible.

The most popular choice is to purchase real estate. Turkey's real estate values rise by 15 to 25% per year. As a result, in 2021, housing sales to investors increased by 43.5 percent.

Along with the investor, family members such as a spouse and children can obtain second citizenship in Turkey.

Frequently asked questions

What is second citizenship?

Second citizenship implies that a person has passports from several countries. Meanwhile, there are no bilateral agreements on recognising dual citizenship between the countries, and each state considers a person to be only its citizen.

High-net-worth individuals may participate in citizenship investment programs. Second passports allow them to travel abroad visa-free, optimise taxation and provide new opportunities for their families.

What is the difference between dual and second citizenship?

Dual citizenship implies that a bilateral agreement was reached between the countries of a person's citizenship. As a result, the individual has the legal status of a dual citizen in both countries.

When there is no agreement on dual citizenship, second citizenship is implied. A person is only considered a citizen of one state.

Investors can obtain a second passport in several countries by purchasing property or contributing to the country's economic fund. Second citizenship allows them to travel visa-free, live abroad, and enjoy other appealing benefits.
