  1. Hello all, 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? Thank you
  2. 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.
  3. Hi everyone, So 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 estate" residency still count towards the 5 years? (assuming it actually does lead to citizenship) Thanks.
  4. hi all, had anyone here got their citizenship through marriage in istanbul? could you please give me a time line for what had happened e.g.: month-year: submitted papper month-year: finger prints followed by interview month-year: got a message asking to go get appointment with the Vali month-year: Vali interview month-year: got citizenship thank you in advance
  5. Hullo! Can I participate in the investment program to purchase a home while I am in Turkey to benefit from citizenship through investment program? I am curious if it works while on an RP.
  6. 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!
  7. Hello, I recently acquired Turkish citizenship ; and they have misspelled ( spelled my first name with a capital “ İ “ with a dot ) when it’s a “ I “ without a dot . Is there a way to correct it ? Any advice will be much appreciated. Thanks
  8. Hey everyone, I am dual national and am about to change my Kimlik to the new biometric one. I attempted to change it while in Turkey for a visit but you have to apply in the country you are resident. Does anyone know the process of applying in Turkish Consulate London? Do I need an appointment and what do I need to take?? Thanks in advance!!
  9. 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 things have to be Translated, notarised and apostatised? Where on earth do i get my Documents translated and noterised?? I looked everywhere. I found on the gov.uk website i can easily get the documents apostatised but the translation of the documents and notarisation is the hard part. Plus, i know that if i get my Turkish Citizenship they may call me into the Army. It's something I'm not so keen on doing but i did look things up and if i paid (Bedeli Askeri) then i can pay off from not doing military service but it will show that it was done. It's £1,000's but i think it's worth it. Any advice or help, i would be greatly appreciated Selim
  10. 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 citizenship is Turkish Nationality Act 5901 Section 403. Benefits As a Turkish citizen, you can Enter Turkey without a visa Live in Turkey without needing a residence permit Work without needing a work permit, in any job you want Open and operate a business without the requirements levied on foreigners Buy property without the usual delay caused by a military check Vote in local and national elections Contribute to a state-sponsored pension Receive inexpensive, global heath insurance through Turkey's national healthcare plan Buy a car as a Turk and not be required to use foreign license plates Negative Aspects If you are of an age suitable for service, you may have to serve in the Turkish military Consular services in Turkey will end, since while in Turkey, your Turkish citizenship will take precedence If you work, you will probably receive lower wages and work longer hours, unlike most foreigners who work in Turkey Your male children will be obligated to serve in the Turkish military once they reach 18 years of age If you are arrested, you will be treated as a Turkish citizen and not a citizen of your home country Dual Citizenship Turkish law does not prohibit you from having two nationalities, but some other countries do. Check your own country's laws to see if your government prohibits the holding of two nationalities. No Name Change is Required You won't have to change your name to one which is Turkish, unless you want to. Eligibility If You Are of Turkish Descent If you have a Turkish mother or a Turkish father, and can prove it, the Turkish government considers you to already be a citizen of Turkey. Therefore, the citizenship process is just a formality. Nothing is required other than proving that you have a Turkish mother or father. This does not extend to other relatives who might be Turkish, for example a Turkish grandmother or Turkish grandfather. However, it may help you to become a Turkish citizen as you go through the regular Turkish citizenship process. If You are Married to a Turkish Citizen Turkish citizenship is not automatically granted by marriage with a Turkish citizen, but your application is not likely to be turned down. You do not have to live in Turkey to become a Turkish citizen if you are married to a Turkish citizen. The main reason you still have to go through the process is so the authorities can be sure the marriage is real. If they are convinced the marriage is real, and you have been married for three years or more, becoming a Turkish citizen is pretty much automatic. Requirements You must be at the age of majority and have the capacity to decide and act on your own, according to the laws of the country you are from (usually 18) You must be married for at least three years, in a marriage which is ongoing and fits the normally accepted conditions of marriage You must have abstained from acts incompatible with the unity of marriage You must have no disease which is a threat to public health You must not be threat to national security or public order If You Are Not of Turkish Descent and Not Married to a Turkish Citizen Requirements You must be at the age of majority and have the capacity to decide and act on your own, according to the laws of the country you are from (usually 18) You must be a legal resident of Turkey for at least five (5) years, without any interruptions totaling six months or more at a time. You must show intent to settle in Turkey, such as owning property, starting a business in Turkey, or having some other binding tie with Turkey You must be able to speak a sufficient amount of Turkish (the standard is higher for those not married to a Turkish citizen) You must have enough income, or a profession, which will allow you to support yourself and your dependents You must not have a disease which is a threat to public health You must not be a threat to Turkey's national security or to the public order You must be of good moral character Required Documents Application form Passport (translated and notarized) Birth Certificate Medical certificate confirming that you are in good health and free of any disease which might endanger public health Document from the security directorate showing how long you have lived in Turkey, as well as all exits and entries into Turkey Certification of your ability to speak Turkish (see below) Four (4) to six (6) passport-size photographs Marriage certificate (if married to a Turk)* Identity documents for your spouse and underage children Note: Any documents obtained from a foreign country must have an apostille, then they must be translated by an official Turkish translator and notarized. Fees The application fee is around 100 TL. Translations and notarization of documents cost around 80-120 TL each. The Application Process The application process for Turkish citizenship can take up to a year. It is a good idea to have this much time on your current residence permit in case you need to leave the country during the process. 1. Citizenship Directorate, or Turkish Embassy/Consulate, for Initial Application Fill out the application forms and get a list of what you will need (requirements usually vary from province to province). Pay the application fee. 2. Police Station (or Embassy/Consulate), for a Police Records Check Fill out their police records check form. Provide a set of fingerprints and a photo (the police or consular officials may take this themselves). Get a document which shows how long you have lived in Turkey, as well as all exits and entries into Turkey. 3. Doctor's Office or Hospital, for a Medical Examination Have a medical examination done and obtain the medical report. 4. Your Home, for a Police Check If you are living in Turkey, a policeman will come by your house and do a brief interview to make sure you are living where you say you live. If you are married, he or she may verify that you and your spouse are living together. At some point you will receive notification of an appointment for your interview at the Citizenship Directorate, or Turkish embassy/consulate. 5. Citizenship Directorate or Turkish Embassy/Consulate, for Interview The interview is done by a panel of local government or consular officials. Arrive early for your appointment to fill out forms, then wait to be called for your interview. During the interview, panel members will verify the information you put on the citizenship application form, and engage you in an informal Turkish conversation. There is no set list of questions, but you can expect to be asked questions such as: Where are you from? When did you come to Turkey? What is your profession? Are you working now? What is your spouse's job? When did you meet your spouse? What is your religion? What do you think of Turkey? What do you think of the Turkish people? Who is Atatürk? What are the words to the Turkish National Anthem? If you are married to a Turkish citizen and your spouse is there, they will likely call them into the room and speak with them privately, or with the two of you together. For those married to a Turkish citizen, the language interview is mostly a formality, so even if you don't do very well you are unlikely to be rejected. If you are not married to a Turkish citizen, the interview will be more strenuous, and you will need to be conversant in Turkish to qualify for citizenship. The results of the interview will then be combined with the rest of your package and sent to the Ministry of Interior for approval. You can expect to wait six months to a year for approval. Dependent Children If you have custody of children, they may also become Turkish citizens if the father consents, or if you go to a Turkish court and get for a court order giving them eligibility for Turkish citizenship.

  23. When a foreigner applies for Turkish citizenship do they have to change their name to a Turkish name?
  24. Hello, It's been quite a long time since I last came here on this website; I missed the website too. Let me give some news about me. I have purchased an apartment in Istanbul in April 2017. I have been a bit busy so did not apply for the change of residence permit type from 'short term tourism' to 'short term house owner'. I got an appointment and upon the day of randevu; the immigration officer didn't seem to speak good english; anyway he looked through my documents and rejected to transfer from 'short term tourism' to 'short term house owner'. The reason he gave was that my TAPU was a LAND (ARSA) BLUE TAPU and this type of TAPU must have at least 50% of Land on your name; I tried to explain him that it is an ARSA (LAND TAPU) because the building is made in 1998 and this is how they used to do things that time; now they give a new red TAPU which is appartment TAPU. This system was not enforced in 1998. I can not have 50% of land on my name because this building has 15 apartment and the land area is divided among all the apartment owners. I only have 1/21 part (10 meters square from 210). BUT I had a Belediye paper which showed that apartment is a 75 m2 2+1. It showed the street name and everything but they did not seem to agree to my explanation. According to their explanation; if I buy a 15 or 20 thousand lira land (house) in a village in Turkey they would accept it as property ownership since I will have 100% land rights but I invested more than 150.000 lira and they are not ready to accept it as investment because I only had 1/21 of the land. This is a very amazing and frustrating type of situation. This must not happen. House means a house when I can also provide them with bank statements and all they must accept my case. Anyway so what they suggested me is that I keep living on a 'short term tourist' and just change the address to my new house address and that's it. But this also means that in the records of Goc Idaresi I will remain a tourist and after five years I can not apply for a citizenship. I wish to get an opinion on this situation here. Is it mandatory to have 'short term house owner' for five years to get citizenship or the actual requirement is to have a house on name for five years and living on tourist or other type of residence permit makes a little difference. Just having house on name for five years will qualify? I look forward for some opinion and information. Looking forward.
