Turkey offers a citizenship-by-investment program, which is also known as the “Golden Visa Program.” The program grants citizenship to those who invest a certain amount of money in the Turkish economy. In January 2017, Turkey introduced the Citizenship-by-Investment Program in order to attract foreign direct investment and encourage growth in the country’s real estate sector. Under specific situations, this scheme permits foreign investors to get citizenship. Applicants are granted permanent citizenship and a passport without being required to stay in the country or relinquish their present nationality.

Requirements for Residency

There are no residency restrictions for obtaining Turkish citizenship as an investor. This means you may receive a Turkish passport six months after investing without ever having resided in Turkey.
You may also hire professionals to handle your investment, visa application, and citizenship process, such as La Vida – Golden Visas’ advisors and legal specialists. As a consequence, if you do not choose to, you are not needed to be in Turkey for your investment or visa application.

You may, however, be required to enter Turkey in order to manage your investment. For example, if you are purchasing real estate, you will need to check the property or consider many options.
