Firstly: Why did Turkish Citizenship become a dream for those who want to live a better life and get a better future?

- Laws and facilities provided by the Turkish government (Secure investment and obtaining Citizenship).

Foreign investors started to invest in real estate in Turkey after the Turkish government had stated a law that gives foreigners the right to acquire Turkish Citizenship after they buy 250K USD worth of real estate in Turkey provided they do not resell it during the next three years. This law means that you, as an investor, spend money on real estate that you can resell after three years with a higher price (sometimes double price) in a country that is witnessing an enormous development in real estate. This way, you will have won Turkish Citizenship and doubled your money after reselling the real estate you had bought.

- Turkey is (God’s Heaven on Earth).

Of course, it is. Those who are living in Turkey feel that they are living in a mixture of cultures: the Islamic Ottoman Empire, the Arab Culture, and the European culture with its cities and green views which made it one of the world’s most important touristic cities.

- Stability:

Turkey itself represents a stable atmosphere in many fields, such as politics and security. This kind of atmosphere is not available in many Arab and Middle East countries, which made a lot of people from many countries move to live in Turkey seeking a better future, getting the advantage of the free developed education and medicine, and the cheap living expenses compared to the European countries.

- Economic Growth:

No one can deny the huge development Turkey has witnessed in the last twenty years in the industry and economic sectors. It has become one of the strongest twenty countries economically and it is said that it is going to be among the top five in 2023. All that has not come from anything. It was the result of the hard work the Turkish government has done. It opened thousands of industrial cities and its goods reached all the markets around the world, the Turkish products have become a brand that competes with Chinese products, which are considered to be a huge exporting country. As for agriculture, Turkey is number one when it comes to the export of many products like hazelnut, tea, and fruits.

Turkey is the main member of NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) and it has a military value and strength that no one in the world can ignore.
