Real Estate Investment

The most popular method of investment when acquiring Turkish Citizenship by Investment is through real estate. The main reason for such a choice is real estate being profitable as investment that can bring up to 6-7% yields, within guarantee. Another reason is people wanting to stay in their property instead of renting, as they visit Istanbul often. Those who choose to acquire Turkish passport by property purchase must ensure their property is valued at $250,000 by a citizenship-valuation authorized expert, has no problems such as mortgages on its title deed, is able to provide a proper title deed for the client as well as their payments made either direct to owner or to their attorney with Power of Attorney given.

The second most popular option is depositing the money in a Turkish bank. People who are looking for minimal gains when compared to real estate, with more safety are choosing. this. Any bank in Turkey can help the client with the. depositing option, yet not all are actively doing so. Ziraat Bank- the top government-owned bank of Turkey, Garanti BBVA- a Spanish-Turkish bank, are partners with Viya in helping clients for their banking operations.

The third option is investing USD 500,000 in investment funds such as GYFs (real estate investment trusts) and GSYFs (venture capital investment trusts) that are approved by Capital Markets Board of Turkey or treasury bonds issued by the Central Bank of Turkey in any currency from any bank. The procedures both for investment funds and bonds are more complicated when compared to other options as the authorities responding to approve are smaller and critical ones such as Central Bank and Capital Markets Board. But, especially some investment funds are actively marketing to attract investors and are providing comparable yields to real estate options. Contact Viya to receive advice which funds to choose.

  Employment 50 people


50 people.
The last option is the employment of 50 or more people, at least with the minimum wage and legal standards, for over three years time and documenting doing so in the Ministry of Labour. Due to the high amount of people to be employed, this option is always never used by investors. As Viya, we are eager to bring investor that create employment and are advising governmental officials in reducing minimum amount of employment needed. ​Those who want to set up companies and employ people along with getting citizenship can purchase factories/offices for the firm worth of USD 250,000 and register on their name as real estate to go with the property option.
