For people who enjoy great food, friendly and helpful people and a tradition of excellence that goes back to the beginnings of civilization, the opportunity to obtain a Turkish passport is pretty exciting. The climate, topography and range of historical events Turkey has been at the center of are all enjoyable. The Citizenship by Investment scheme in Turkey requires an investment in Turkey. For people who are able to invest $250,000 USD in Turkish real estate, or those who employ 50 Turkish people or more, or even people who have otherwise made investments of $500,000 USD in fixed capital in Turkey, and who can also clear the other requirements, the Turkish passport is in reach.
Turkey’s history is very deep. Its location in relationship to both Europe and also Russia has not only put the country at risk in the modern area, but has been a challenge back into unrecorded history. Its economy is based in manufacturing, with very large production facilities for cars, shipwrights and a vast agricultural enterprise. The Presidential Republic government established in 2017 is stable, as is the economy.
Turkey offers a CBI program that the government administers. For those who are qualified, the approval process happens in less than 90 days. For those applicants who have families and dependents under eighteen years old, children can be included in the application. Be aware, though, that Turkey’s mandatory military service requirement will apply to them, as well. The program requires young men under twenty-two years old to serve.
