Turkey Dual Citizenship Laws You Should Know

Ken Grubb

Turkish law allows you to be a citizen of Turkey and of one or more other countries. However, some other countries prohibit this.

If your home country prohibits you from becoming a Turkish citizen you will, at some point, be required to renounce citizenship in your home country before you can become a Turkish citizen. Check the laws of your home country first and see if it allows dual citizenship before you apply to become a Turkish citizen.

Turkish Citizenship Law

Turkish Citizenship Law is the Turkish Nationality Act No. 5901 as amended.
