Citizenship Application

This service is available across Turkey

Who Can Benefit from this Service?

Anyone who does not have the right to reside in Turkey, and even those who may reside here legally, may consider it preferable to make an application for citizenship. 

Citizenship confers the right on the holder to reside and work in Turkey. Also, citizens have the right to vote as well as the plethora of rights typically conferred on citizens of a country.

  • Either of your parents were Turkish
  • You were born in Turkey
  • You have lived in Turkey legally, for a minimum of 5 years
  • You marry a Turkish citizen and you remain married for a period of at least 3 years
