The investment migration experts at Astons explain the benefits of the Turkish Citizenship by Investment programme. By investing $250,000 in a studio apartment or a luxury villa, you will obtain a second passport that unlocks many rights and privileges. 

Invest in Turkish property and obtain a second citizenship

The most popular way to receive citizenship of Turkey is to purchase local property at the minimum cost of $250,000. Since the government of Turkey decreased the minimum investment from $1 million to $250,000, many affluent individuals from all over the world have purchased apartments and houses in Turkey and obtained a second citizenship in the country.

Due to the immigration reform, the number of sale-purchase deals in Turkish property soared by 92% in 2019. Analysts report that in Q1 2020 63,759 properties were purchased in Istanbul, mostly by foreign investors.

Buy a property in Turkey and relocate to the UK

Citizens of Turkey can get a Turkish Entrepreneur business visa and relocate to the UK. Later on, they can apply for the British residency and citizenship.

The Astons lawyers highly recommend to act fast: you can only use this opportunity till the end of the Brexit transition period, i.e. the end of 2020. If you wish to relocate to the UK quickly, legally and without extra expenses, now is the time. You can obtain the Turkish passport in just two months so you should apply right away.

Purchase a property in Turkey and travel the world with your family

The passport of Turkey allows you to visit 110 countries without a visa, including Singapore, Japan and South Korea. Moreover, the Turkish citizenship offers a quick way to relocate to the US. With a Turkish passport, you can get a US Е-2 business visa, followed by a EB-5 immigration visa and eventually a Green Card.

According to Turkey’s Citizenship by Investment programme, you can obtain passports for your family members: spouse and children under 18 (children with disabilities can be added to the application regardless of their age).

Invest into Turkish property, relax in your seaside house and make a profit

The Citizenship by Investment programme of Turkey stipulates that foreign investors may purchase property at the minimum cost of $250,000, which they can rent out and sell with a profit in three years. Many affluent individuals use this opportunity to buy a dwelling by the sea, obtain a second passport and yield tangible returns on investment.

Istanbul, Antalya, Bursa and Bodrum are the most popular cities among investors. The average revenue from renting out apartments and houses is 4 to 6% per year. According to immigration analysts, most foreign investors purchase property in Istanbul – the business and cultural centre of the country.

Last year, the number of tourists who visited Istanbul exceeded the number of Istanbul residents. According to the mayor of Istanbul, the city holds the third place in Europe and ninth in the world by the number of tourists. At that, 42 of 100 tourists visiting Turkey come to Istanbul. Experts maintain that after the pandemic limitations are lifted, the tourist market in Turkey will experience further growth.
