Freedom of travel for Turkish passport holders is quite wide. Offering visa-free travel to 111 countries provides the opportunity to easily reach many different destinations around the world. Especially for those who want to travel to the Far East, important financial centers such as Japan, Singapore, South Korea and Thailand can be reached without a visa or with a visa on arrival.
For those wishing to travel to the United States, Turkey offers special privileges as a country that has made an agreement for the E-1 and E-2 visa programs. This allows Turkish passport holders to work or start a business in the United States. In addition, Turkish citizens can travel visa-free to 95% of the countries in South and Central America.
Turkish citizenship also offers the possibility of dual citizenship. Dual citizenship is possible in Turkey, which does not prevent Turkish citizens from becoming citizens of another country. In addition, spouses, children under the age of 18 and dependent parents of Turkish citizens can also benefit from Turkish citizenship.
Another advantage of Turkish citizenship is the return on investment. If you purchase real estate after becoming a Turkish citizen, you are required to hold the property for at least 3 years. After this period, you can sell the property or hold it for another 5 years to avoid capital gains tax. You also have the opportunity to earn up to 8% annual return by renting out your property.
