Am I entitled to Turkish citizenship when buying a property in Turkey?

How to get the turkish citizenship-buy the property in Turkey.

Not so far ago on 12th January 2017 new regulations on receiving Turkish citizenship have come into power. According to them each foreigner who buys property worth minimum 1 million dollars and  not sell it for the following three years, could be given Turkish citizenship. So it was so obvious that most of buyers will not be able to even dream about that. But times change and the rules as well, so for today the new minimum property value is 250.000 american dollar. At least closer to average values of properties which are sold in Alanya region.

However there is another option; if during 5 years you obtain a residency permit based on the owning the title deed and it would be without any  time brake between each other , than you are allowed to apply for Turkish citizenship. So if this is what you are thinking about start now to learn Turkish language 🙂 it will be good to know it better than “merhaba, nasılsınız ?” (hi, how are you? )  during the application process.

*The possibility of selling the property within 3 years will be blocked with the notation in the mortgage register.
