Information on the previous law to grant real estate citizenship

The Turkish government announced last year a law that allows foreign investors to apply for Turkish citizenship with different terms.

The law granting Turkish citizenship to foreign investors in return for buying a property in Turkey was issued last year and was published in the Official Gazette on 12 January 2017.

Turkey relies heavily on the real estate sector as one of the most important pillars of economic growth, which is linked to dozens of sectors directly or indirectly, and the government supports this sector to the maximum extent possible.

Turkey encourages investment in the real estate sector and offers many advantages and facilities to those who invest or buy real estate in Turkey after the property market has experienced considerable growth, especially following the change in the Foreign Ownership Act of 2012, which allowed foreigners to own property.

The law issued in this regard, which gives the right to obtain Turkish citizenship in return for buying a property is the most important advantages that show the great importance attached by Turkey to the real estate sector.
