In May 2017, the Turkish government introduced a landmark citizenship programme to promote foreign investment.

The programme offers foreign nationals who buy real estate or bring capital over certain thresholds the eligibility to acquire Turkish citizenship. 

The most striking feature of the programme is that investors do not have to live in Turkey to acquire the citizenship.

In September 2018, the investment tresholds were substantially lowered by the government, making it by far the most attractive citizenship programme in the world.
