Investor Residence Permit

Residence Permit for Investments and Real Estate in Turkey

One of the most common residence permits in Turkey is granted for the purchase of real estate for commercial or residential purposes. Making such investments gives a foreign citizen an opportunity not only to obtain a residence permit but also to become a Turkish resident. In this case, the terms and conditions depend entirely on the cost of the apartment.

For example, if you invest in a villa in Antalya, you can count on obtainingTurkish citizenship with a minimum package of documents. However, if you purchase nothing less than a boutique hotel, you can move to Turkey with the whole family (with family members becoming subjects of the jurisdiction) and start a hotel business.

Note: in 2022, you can get a touristic residence permit on the same terms by buying a facility at a price of $75,000 (or $50,000 in small cities). However, the period of stay on the basis of a touristic residence permit in Turkey is not included in the naturalization period (which gives the right to citizenship). According to a general rule, the naturalization period lasts for 5 years, following which the foreigner can apply for a Turkish passport.
