Permenant Residence Turkey: How To Get Turkish Citizenship?

If a foreigner who wants to acquire Turkish citizenship accepts dual citizenship in his/her own State, if he/she fulfills the conditions specified in the T.R. Citizenship Law, he/she can acquire Turkish citizenship with the decision of the competent authority.

However, it should be emphasized that the meeting required conditions does not provide an absolute right to acquire citizenship. In other words, it is not possible for everyone who meets the conditions to acquire Turkish citizenship. Because it is a matter that falls under the sovereignty of states to give citizenship to whom and to whom it will not.

Whether the applicant meets all of the above conditions is examined by the commission on the file and determined by mutual interview. The applicant’s family situation is also examined in this interview and attention is paid to whether he is of Turkish descent. Deaf and dumb people are interviewed in their own sign language with the help of a translator or if they are literate, by writing.
