    Reference: Procedures for obtaining Turkish citizenship by purchasing real estate

    Please provide me with a list of countries that can get Turkish citizenship by purchasing property in Turkey?
    My brother in law is a Palestinian refugee with a travel document issued by Egypt. Can he apply for Turkish citizenship if he buy a home with $250,000 in Turkey?
    I heard Syrian are not allowed under this law.

      Hello,
      Thank you for your comment.

      Turquoise card has not been released yet, neither the requirements to apply were explained by the authorities. We recommend you to follow expatguideturkey.com in order to get updated whenever any details about Turquoise Card will be known. Requirements regarding rsidence permit application can vary according to the city and purpose of your stay. If you are considering settling down in Turkey, you are supposed to purchase a property in order to be able to obtain residence permit for property owners, which will be posible to extend repeatedly in the future. You can only work in Turkey if you have valid work permit. In order to obtain work permit, first you need to find a job in Turkey and your future employer must apply for your permit. Foreigners can not apply for work permit in their own name or without having a job in Turkey. Application for foreigner who has residence permit valid in total for at least 6 months can be done within Turkey. For foreigners who are not residence permit holders, application must be done via Turkish Consulate in their home country. Work permit application can not be submitted basing on visa.

    HEY
    around 6 months ago I overstayed turkey for 60 days and I paid the fine at Ankara airport. they told me to come back in 4 months time and it should be fine.
    I am Iranian national I was wondering do I have to get a visa to enter turkey or not as Iranian people don’t need visa to enter turkey?
    kind regards

      Hello,
      Thank you for your comment.

      If you paid the fine and were not banned to re-enter Turkey, you can come back to Turkey and stay for another 90 days with no requirement of obtaining visa to re-enter the country.

        well they only told me to come back after 4 months so I guess I was banned for 4 months.
        so wouldn’t have any problem to enter again? and do I have to have that paper that I paid my fine with me or they already have on their system?
        and another question I contacted the trukish consulate in London and they told me as I have over stayed I have to apply for a visa to enter turkey.

    Hello
    My parents are born in Turkey, the city of Izmir, but they are dead. Can I get long-term resident accommodation in Turkey?
    Thanks

    • ExpatGuideTurkey

      Hello,
      Thank you for your comment.

      Long term residence permit is only given to foreigners who are staying in Turkey uninterruptedly for at least 8 years. If your parents were Turkish citizens, it might ba an advantage for you while applying for short-term residence permit but it does not entitle you to apply for long-term residence permit before 8 years passes.

    i would like to live and work in your country please how can i do to go over there

    • ExpatGuideTurkey

      Hello,
      Thank you for your comment.

      If you would like to settle down in Turkey, you should purchase a property in order to obtain residence permit which would be possible to be extended in the future. You can also consider Citizenship by Investment programme, which will enable you to acquire Turkish citizenship within short period of time in order to settle down and work in Turkey. Otherwise, if you find a job in Turkey, your future employer must apply for your work permit, on basis of which you can live and work in Turkey as a foreigner.

    • ExpatGuideTurkey

      Hello,
      Thank you for your comment.

      You must to be already in Turkey in order to apply for residence permit. Application submitted from abroad would not be accepted. After arrival to Turkey you can purchase private health insurance for foreigners and our company can provide you with this type of policy. After obtaining residence permit you can also benefit from public health insurance services in Turkey.

      Kind Regards,
