Travel Opportunities

With a Turkey passport, a person can travel to 110 countries visa-free. These countries include Japan, Hong Kong, and Singapore. There are also current negotiations happening to secure visa-free travel to the Schengen zone for Turkish citizens.

European Union Access

Potential EU Access

Turkey has a current application open to join the European Union, a cluster of countries in Europe that have relaxed access and residency requirements for one another. If successful, a Turkey passport holder will be able to travel to and even move to other countries in the European Union. This is a significant potential benefit for the Turkey Citizenship by Investment Program.

Social Services with Citizenship by Investment

Social Benefits

Offering its citizens free health care and higher education are just two of the major social services Turkey has committed to. If approved, applicants and their families can take advantage of these services even if they do not reside in Turkey full-time.

E2 Visa Eligibility

The E2 investor visa to the United States is usually difficult to obtain, but with a Turkey passport, it becomes much more attainable. An applicant and their family can be included in the E2 visa, though this visa type is considered a non-immigrant visa, meaning visa holders are not eligible for US citizenship.

Turkey Passport Background

Why Turkey?

Turkey Landscape

The Other Side of an Investment

Turkey is no stranger to economic hardships and finding creative ways to bring in additional funds will contribute to the country’s long-term prosperity. Foreign investors can help inject funds into the economy, create jobs, and build a better outlook for Turkey’s future.

Application Procedure

As the very first step, our team will conduct our pre-due diligence screening based on the investor’s provided passport copy. Once the investor has passed our pre-due diligence screening, we can proceed with the formal process. The process can be done completely remotely, but the investor will need to visit a Turkish embassy or consulate during the process. The complete process takes 3-5 months.

Document Collection

We need to prepare the following documents: Address proof, passport copies, apostilled birth certificates, an apostilled marital status certificate, and an apostilled power of attorney.

Bank account opening and reservation of investment property

The investor must complete his/her investment from a Turkish bank account under his/her name. With the power of attorney, our Turkish lawyer can proceed with the bank opening on the investor’s behalf. Our team will also reserve the investment property chosen by the investor.

Investment completion

Once the purchase is completed and the title deed is received, we will apply for citizenship.

Biometrics & Passport issuance

Once the citizenship approval is received, the investor will visit a Turkish embassy or consulate for biometrics and collection of their Turkish passports.
