Application Methods

1. Buying Real Estate

  • The Government reduced the requirements for citizenship by real estate purchase from USD 1.000.000 to USD 400.000, which is equivalent to a %60 reduction.

  • Accordingly, the Government allows applications for citizenship by purchasing real estate worth at least USD 400.000. In this programme Real estate can be sold after 3 years of the ownership without any restrictions other than the ones applied to citizens.

  • It is crucial that a due-diligence is made for such property assuring that it falls within the standards of the citizenship programme. Therefore consulting to professionals before such investment is considered a must. Failure to do so may result in instant refusal of application by the Government.

2. Making Bank deposit

  • The Government reduced the requirements for citizenship by bank deposit from USD 2.000.000 to USD 500.000, which is equivalent to a %75 reduction. Accordingly, citizenship applications will be possible to those who hold USD 500.000.

  • Such deposits can be withdrawn or transferred after 3 years.
