A note recently issued by the Turkish Government has confirmed that foreigners who buy property worth at least $1million can obtain Turkish citizenship. The note confirms that citizenship will also be offered to foreigners who deposit a minimum of $3million in Turkish banks on the condition that they do not withdraw it for 3 years.
Foreign investment in real estate is on the decline in Turkey due largely to security concerns. Russians, Kuwaitis, Saudis, and Iraqis are the biggest investors and it remains to be seen whether the “carrot” of citizenship will be enough to halt the decline.

“ Hughes Paddison came highly recommended and they were not wrong. I am so glad I appointed Kim to represent me. It was a really difficult time and Kim swiftly and compassionately cut through to the crux of the issue and gave me such clear and great advice immediately. The outcome achieved was truly the best for myself and the organisation and avoided more stress for all parties involved, as it was solved very quickly. Most importantly for me, Kim handled the negotiations. The relief of handing this over to someone I completely trusted made a horrible situation much better. Many thanks to Kim and HP.”
