Turkish passport strength in 2022

Is a Turkish passport worth $400,000 to obtain in return for buying a property?

To answer this question, we present the following points:

  • The phased depreciation of the Turkish lira led to a significant relative decline in real estate prices in Turkey, which gave foreign investors opportunities for profitable real estate investment in the future, with obtaining Turkish citizenship as a result of these investments under Turkish laws.
  • Turkish law does not require the purchase of specific types of real estate, as a condition for obtaining citizenship through real estate investment, but rather offers various options that suit the investor's needs such as housing, land, commercial buildings, and others.
  • Ease of granting the family of a foreign investor the right to obtain Turkish citizenship, but the only exception to this is the investor's children who are over 18 years old.
  • The dual citizenship system in Turkey allows investors to keep the original citizenship and the Turkish citizenship they seek to obtain, and enjoy its advantages. The laws in Turkey provide for the possibility of acquiring Turkish citizenship, with the right to retain the original citizenship, without any of them affecting the other.
  • Many Arab and foreign investors prefer Turkish citizenship and offer it even over some European nationalities, due to the nature of Turkey and its ancient Islamic civilizational heritage, the space for freedom in it, and the facilities it offers to investors.
  • The possibility for a Turkish citizen to enter 5 countries through a Turkish ID card and without the need for a Turkish passport, and these countries are: Georgia, Ukraine, Moldova, Azerbaijan, in addition to Turkish Cyprus, with the opportunity still exists to conclude similar agreements with other countries; which adds more value to obtaining Turkish citizenship in exchange for a property.

All these factors and other reasons increase our confidence in answering: Yes to the question raised above, especially since the holder of Turkish citizenship in exchange for a property that can recover the price of his property after 3 years of purchase by selling it, and he has a great chance of profiting in the property if he chooses his property properly and makes good use of it.
