    It is possible to obtain Turkish citizenship in kind on the following grounds:

    1. Marriage with a citizen of Turkey
      Turkish citizenship can be obtained after 3 years of official marriage with a citizen of Turkey.
    2. 5 years of official residence in Turkey
      During this time, the foreigner must stay in the country for a total of at least 180 days a year. Also, a foreigner must have a permanent official income and know Turkish. When considering an application, the Turkish authorities also take into account such factors as the reliability of a foreign citizen, the absence of crimes, especially in Turkey, the presence/absence of diseases that pose a threat to society (primarily HIV and advanced tuberculosis).

    Since 2018, amendments have been made to the law on obtaining citizenship, which allow investors to obtain Turkish citizenship in an accelerated manner.

    1. Purchasing real estate  
      Real estate worth more than 250,000 euros in the United States - one or more objects of the primary or secondary real estate market, including commercial real estate and infrastructure facilities purchased after October 2018. It is required that real estate undergo an appraisal examination before sale.
      And based on the report of the expert commission, the cadastral value of housing is determined. That is, it is this document that is taken into account by government agencies when considering an application for citizenship. The application for citizenship must be submitted within three months after the purchase and sale transaction is concluded. When submitting an application, you will also need a bank statement stating that the required amount was transferred from the buyer's account to the seller's account. Real estate must be registered only in the name of the person who is applying for citizenship under the simplified scheme, and not in the name of his wife (husband) or children. The condition for obtaining citizenship is to own real estate for at least 3 years. After this, the objects can be sold.
    2. Job creation
      Creation of at least 50 jobs confirmed by the Ministry of Labor and Social Security of the Republic of Turkey.
    3. Financing to Turkey
    • Open a deposit account. If a foreign citizen deposits at least 500 thousand euros in any Turkish bank, then he can count on obtaining Turkish citizenship under a simplified scheme. It is worth noting that the required amount cannot be withdrawn for three years.  
    • Invest money in the Turkish economy. Another option to obtain Turkish citizenship using a simplified scheme is to invest in the country’s economy. A foreigner can apply for a Turkish passport provided that he has invested at least 500 thousand euros in the Turkish economy.
    • Buy government bonds. This is also a great option to obtain Turkish citizenship using a simplified scheme. To do this, you need to purchase government bonds worth at least 500 thousand euros.

    The process of obtaining citizenship in kind lasts about six months, in an accelerated manner - 2 months. A Turkish passport is issued for 10 years, after which it needs to be changed. Also, a foreign citizen, having become a Turkish citizen, can receive a Turkish passport, which is also issued for a maximum of 10 years. Another important point. Dual citizenship is allowed in Turkey. That is, you can remain a citizen of your country and be a citizen of Turkey. This law does not apply in all countries. For example, in Russia dual citizenship is allowed. But residents of Kazakhstan, if they decide to accept Turkish citizenship, will have to renounce the citizenship of their country.
