Citizenship for Foreign Property Investors ?
Speaking at an international forum organised by media consultants Global Connection, the Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci told the delegates that special incentives will be put in place for foreign nationals that invest in Turkish property.
Zeybekci hinted that these incentives will be formally declared next week and would include the issuing of a Turquoise Card for all foreigners that buy immoveable property in Turkey (houses, apartments, land etc.).
This card would give holders either unlimited residency (or citizenship), thus enabling them to take advantage of those rights currently enjoyed by Turkish citizens (including state healthcare).
