Benefits of Turkish Citizenship

Benefits of Turkish Citizenship

– Your wife / husband and children under 18 years old can acquire citizenship together with you at the same time.
– When you apply for citizenship, you are not required to declare your assets or income that you currently have in other countries.
– You do not have to have lived continuously in Turkey for a certain period to become eligible for citizenship. You can continue to live abroad and apply for citizenship as soon as you get the residence permit.
– You can travel to many countries without the need to follow a cumbersome visa application process.

Many of these countries allow Turkish citizens to stay 30 to 90 days without any visa requirement and also some countries grant visas upon arrival or issue electronic visas upon online application.

The Visa Liberalization Dialogue, the aim of which is to grant Turkish citizens visa-free travel right to Schengen countries, between Turkey and the EU, was launched in 2013. Once achieved, further 26 European countries will be added to the list of 102 countries where Turkish citizens can already travel freely.
