About the Turkey Economic Citizenship Program

Originally launched in 2017, the Turkish Passport By Investment Program’s investment requirement was reduced to only $250,000 in 2018, leading to a surge in demand for Turkish property among foreign investors. (It has since been raised to $400,000 again.)

As per presidential decree 418, “Regulation Amending the Regulation on Implementation of Turkish Citizenship Law”, dated 7 December 2018, foreign investors now have a number of more affordable options to invest for citizenship in Turkey.

Investment options to gain Turkish citizenship 2023

As of May 2023, investors have a number of investment options to qualify for the Turkish CIP:

  1. A $400,000 investment in property, with the value appraised and confirmed by a licensed professional, and recognised by the Turkish Government. The investment is to be held for a minimum period of 3 years. This investment option is by far the most popular, and has made the Turkey CIP one of the top citizenship programs in the world.

  2. The creation of at least 50 full time jobs for 50 employees.

  3. A deposit of at least $500,000 with a Turkish national bank, or a $500,000 investment in Turkish government bonds, to be held for a period of 3 years.

  4. A capital investment of $500,000 in real estate participation fund shares, or capital investment trust fund shares, to be help for a minimum period of 3 years.

Why choose Turkey for second citizenship


  • THE ULTIMATE PLAN B: Gain an affordable, luxury second home and a lavish Mediterranean lifestyle a stone’s throw from Europe and Asia.

  • UNRIVALLED AFFORDABILITY: With CIP approved properties priced from only $400,000, the Turkish citizenship program is one of the most affordable property based options in the world.

  • HIGH POTENTIAL GROWTH: Given Lira devaluation combined with escalating construction costs and a booming tourism sector, an investment in Turkish property holds significant capital growth potential.

  • GREATER GLOBAL MOBILITY: The Turkish passport offers the bearer visa-free access, or a visa upon arrival, for over 110 countries around the world, including South Africa, Morocco, Andorra, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ukraine, Serbia, Bahrain, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Iraq, Iran, Japan, Qatar, Cambodia, Lebanon, South Korea, Malaysia, Oman, Thailand, Taiwan, Jordan, Indonesia, South Africa, and Argentina. Additional destinations include Panama, Peru, St Lucia, Uruguay as well as Antigua and Barbuda.

    The country is also expected to sign a visa waiver treaty with the EU in the near future, which would catapult the power of the Turkish Passport as a travel document significantly – and at an exceptionally affordable price.

  • Path to US and UK residency: Turkish citizens are eligible to apply for the UK Turkish Businessperson Visa and the USA E-2 Visa, making an investment in Turkish citizenship a very cost effective method to obtain residency in either of these countries.
