Feeling part of the community you are living is an important part in integrating into it. Most foreigners either investing in a home or business in Turkey are already making a huge personal commitment to the country in several ways, financial, familial & cultural. To assist in this, the Turkish Government have recently implemented new laws governing Turkish Citizenship. The amendments to the original laws, Article 20 of the Governing Regulations of Turkish Citizen code was instituted on 12.01.2017. Now foreigners to the country who wish to become a citizen and feel at home in Istanbul or anywhere else in the country can do so if they fulfil one of the specified criteria.
The Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey will take the date of verification into consideration to determine the value of the above amounts.
The laws are similar in kind to ones found in other countries in the European Union and the United States of America with some subtle differences.
