With the increased interest in real estate investment in Turkey, and the availability of distinctive real estate projects, the interest of investors to move towards Turkey with the aim of investment or stability has increased.
This coincided with the facilitations provided by the Turkish government to foreigners constantly, to encourage real estate investment, including amending certain laws and opening the door to many nationalities for direct ownership.
Foreigners who intend to extend their stay in Turkey beyond the time limit prescribed in their visa, those who need a visa exemption or intend to stay for more than ninety days must obtain a residence permit.
Short-term residence permits are issued for a maximum of two years as a principle. A residence permit is invalidated if it is not used within six months.
