Background and Legal Considerations

Several countries have adopted provisions that allow the acquisition of citizenship on the basis of an investment and/or a direct contribution to the state as a means of development of the country. In Turkey, of the Turkey Citizenship Act states that the government can reward foreign persons with citizenship in the event of extraordinary merit. This may take various forms, including economic ones, and can include capital contribution or other economic benefit brought to Turkey. 

GCI UNIT Turkey advises on suitable capital contribution opportunities, liaises with the various government agencies and ministries, and finally prepares and lodges your application with the Government. As with other citizenship programs, the procedure involves a thorough background check, and applicants are normally required to attend an interview in Turkey. Citizenship documents are issued after the citizenship application has been approved.

The average time frame for an application is 30 - 60 days. Successful applicants receive full citizenship of the Republic of Turkey by decision of the Government of Turkey, and can apply for a passport immediately afterwards. Passports are issued within a few days.

The grant of citizenship is not reported to any other country, as it falls within the Government provisions relating to privacy/official secrets.
