Islamic Republic of Iran and Turkey has strong cultural and financial ties as well as long-standing relationships. Turkey received the highest number of real estate investments from Iran, compared to the rest of the globe. They hold the record, with more than 3000 properties bought in 2020. Not limited to real estate, industry and agriculture also seem to attract many Iranian investors to Turkey. This attention from the Iranian people will most likely continue to increase in the upcoming years as well.
Turkish citizenship allows visa-free travel to more than 100 countries and opens new doors to investors. On January 22, 2020, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that Iranian nationals were no longer eligible for E-1 treaty trader or E-2 treaty investor status, which makes obtaining Turkish citizenship a very convenient way of benefiting from these statuses in the United States. Obtaining Turkish citizenship by Persians is made easy by the Turkish government as property investment in the country became the shortest way for it.
