The Turkey Citizenship by Investment Programme is amongst the youngest ones in the business. Launched in 2017, to boost the country’s real estate sector, the initial investment requirement of at least USD 1,000,000 did not seem as an attractive option for the investors.
Shortly after amending the law and decreasing the cost down to USD 250,000 in 2018, the programme quickly became one of the most popular ones in the citizenship and residency by investment world, and still stands strong today.
