When you buy a property or several properties with a total value of 250,000 US-Dollar, you can apply to the General Directorate of Land Registry and Cadastre (Tapu ve Kadastro Genel Müdürlüğü
in Turkish). This application form is sent to the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization. Appraisers are required to check and confirm that the total value of the property(ies) are equal to or more than 250,000 USD. The Ministry then places a temporal restriction on the title deed stating that you may not sell the property within the next 3 years. Finally, the application is sent to the General Directorate of Population and citizenship Affairs and you will receive your Turkish id and passport soon after.
