The Benefits and Privileges of Obtaining Turkish Citizenship

But a question may be asked: What is the benefit of obtaining Turkish citizenship? What distinguishes it from other nationalities? Here we can answer the following:

Turkey is a modern country, witnessing unprecedented growth in infrastructure projects, attracting foreign investment, including the support of the real estate sector, attracting foreign capital to it, as well as the development of the industrial, commercial and agricultural sectors, and the export of products, as well as its prominent international position at the regional and international levels.

Turkey's future aspirations are based on promoting technological transformation in various aspects of government and life, government and private sector institutions adopt more open and flexible policies and facilitate the provision of services through multiple channels, the most important of which are secure Internet sites and mobile applications, which have become the easiest way to connect and request government and commercial services to all segments of society.

The Turkish government's Strategic plans are based on strengthening the economy and providing it with new sources of income that guarantee stability and sustainable development in the long term. This was reflected in the new Turkish government's program, which was announced at the beginning of the second reign of the Turkish Republic.

Continuing work on major projects, some of which are nearing completion, such as Istanbul's Third Airport, the Istanbul Canal, and the new metro networks, clearly indicate that the country's renaissance is a constant wheel that refuses to stop or even slow down.

Turkey's location in the heart of the world between Asia and Europe has given it unique strategic importance, making it a bridge to meet diverse civilizations and cultures, and a very important trade route between East and West, land, sea, and air...

Istanbul, the capital of the Islamic world, the sister of the Levant, Cairo, and Kairouan, the cradle of glory and authentic Ottoman civilization, with its customs, traditions, mosques, and eastern streets, stand side by side with the modern European character of today's major commercial and industrial city.

As for nature and climate, they are indescribable. The other cities and towns of Turkey are characterized by natural beauty, between greenery, streams of water, beaches, and meadows, in mild weather and most of the months of the year.
