  2. Hi everyone! My name is Selim and i am a British Born Turk, My father is Turkish and my Mother is Turkish Cypriot. For years now i want to get Turkish Citizenship via my father and i have looked into the process but it seems confusing and quite hard to do? I contacted the Turkish Consulate in London and they told me i need my birth certificate, my UK passport and a Medical Certificate (Letter from Doctor saying I'm in good health?) I don't think a letter is enough, do i need to get a proper Health Certificate from somewhere? My Birth Certificate, UK passport and other thin
  3. Hi everyoneI've asked this question to a number of lawyers/judges and no one seems to be able to give me a definite answer. In June 2013 I will have been in Turkey for 5 years. The first 3.5 years were on the 90 day visa, which I obviously renewed as necessary. Since the 90/180 rule came in, i've been on a long term tourist visa which expires next month. After that I intend to apply for the normal residence permit, for a year or so. Does the 5 year residence requirement for citizenship include time spent on a tourist visa, or do they only count the years where you have stayed with a residence
  4. Hi Guys, Apparently, The Turkish Government has taken away the option for people with Turkish descent (Mother or Father) to get Turkish citizenship. When looking on consulate websites (like London) the option to get Turkish citizenship through a parent is missing. Plus i read on a website earlier that Turkey will no longer give citizenship to people with Turkish Descent. If this is true, then this will devastate me as i want to get Turkish Citizenship sometime in the future. Apparently, people like me won't be able to get it via a Turkish Parent if i am a citizen of another c

  7. I have a short term residency based on owning a property here (not tourist, i think it's called real estate residency) and I'm living in Turkey most of the year. Lots of people are telling me that after 3-5 years of this type of residency you are eligible to apply for citizenship. I have also heard that it's NOT true so I keep getting mixed messages on this. I'm also about to start the process of getting a work permit here as well. So my questions are: 1. Does the "real estate" residency actually lead to citizenship? 2. If I get a work permit, does the period of "real

  9. Hi there, my name is Erdal and this is my very first post.. I am 37y old, my mother and father are Turkish born, but we emigrated to the Netherlands when I was 8y old and we all have double (dutch and turkish) nationality. The Dutch parliament soon will treat a new proposal for a law.

My aim is to keep my Dutch passport. For this reason I want to get renounce my Turkish citizenship. B
  10. Love this forum. Does anyone know about the new Law on citizenship and $250k real estate investment. This means that if you invest at least $250,000 USD in real estate then you can get citizenship in 3-6 months. Anyone knows anything? Is this a new scam?
  11. My friend, who is a dual citizen, postponed his military till 38 years old. He wants to come to Turkey to live for 1 or 2 years during this time, he is 29 now. Does anyone know what is the penalty for living in Turkey for 1-2 years while on postponement? I read that you can only stay in Turkey for 184 days per year or you risk having your postponement cancelled. Will he have to pay a fine when he tries to leave? sent to military? etc? Thanks in advance for anyones help on this matter.

  13. Hey all, I'm 23 years old and a US Citizen, my father is a Turkish citizen and my mother is a foreigner. Both of them never got married and my birth was never registered in Turkey. My family in Turkey says that getting Turkish citizenship in Turkey is much easier since the embassy is giving me a hard time. Anyone know the process I would have to follow? I'm guessing I would have to register my birth? Thanks all!

  16. Turkish citizenship applications, made within Turkey, are processed at the local İl Nüfüs ve Vatandaşlık Müdürlüğü, (Population and Citizenship Directorate). This will probably be in the local Adalet Sarayı, the law building where court is held, or at the governor's office building. Applications made outside of Turkey are processed at Turkish embassies or consulates. Once your application package is assembled and your ability to converse in Turkish is confirmed, your package will be sent to the İçişleri Bakanlığı, (Ministry of the Interior), for approval. The law concerning Turkish c

I have been married to my Turkish husband for 14 years, we got married in Turkey, lived in London for 10 years and we have been living in Turkey for the last 4 years with our UK born sons who have dual nationality. I began applying for citizenship a few months ago, I have submitted the paperwork, the police have been to our home and I have been to the station to have fingerprints taken etc. I am awaiting my interview and there has been no mention of requiring a medical yet.

  21. I’ve reached a complete brick wall with trying to find information on how to change my name on my Turkish ID card. I’ve had dual nationality since birth and have a British passport and a Turkish ID card. I recently changed my name by deed poll, and need to change my passport to match (that I can do.) But my passport must match my name on my Turkish ID card. Is it possible to change my name on my ID card, or am I going to have to give up my nationality? I really don’t want to do that for multiple reasons, but I risk being done for identity fraud if the two don’t match. Does anyone have any

We moved to the UK in 2002 and got divorced in 2005. I have lived in the UK since then but when I retire in 5 years time I would like to return to live in Turkey. Will I have "lost" my Turkish citizenship on divorce? We were divorced in Turkey. My Turkish citizen ID has not been updated since the divorce and I have since remarried.
