-The person must specify the type of property he wishes to choose (whether it is an apartment, shop or land), with the need to pay a deposit to reserve it.
-It is necessary for the person to have a real estate appraisal report for this property.

Other nationalities seeking Turkish citizenship:

There is no doubt that there are other nationalities seeking to obtain Turkish citizenship, but due to special circumstances, some of these nationalities may need to prepare additional papers when applying for Turkish citizenship.
It is worth noting that Palestinians who hold travel documents from other countries must obtain a residence permit in Turkey, before they buy a property.
But if their properties match the special conditions related to Turkish citizenship, they are entitled to submit their files to the concerned authorities.
However, there are some recent decisions that exempt them from this, and it has become the right of Palestinians to own real estate directly inside Turkey, regardless of the type of document or passport they hold, and accordingly they have the right to apply for citizenship in exchange for buying a property, like any other investor.
As for citizens who live in a country and do not hold its citizenship, they can own real estate in Turkey, after they obtain a residency, and then they have the right to apply for Turkish citizenship, but this is achieved if the conditions of the Turkish Nationality Law apply to them.
It is worth noting that the owners of Egyptian nationality have the right to buy any type of real estate in Turkey, and once they purchase a property that has the recognized characteristics, they have the right to apply for Turkish citizenship, but agricultural lands are excluded from these properties, which they can only buy after Establishing a company, and then registering the land in the name of the commercial company, and not in the name of the Egyptian person, and this assures us that agricultural lands are not commensurate with granting Turkish citizenship to Egyptians.
As for Syrian nationals, it is necessary that they issue a residence permit in Turkey, and then establish a company, and then they can buy a property and register it in the name of this company, which increases their chances of obtaining exceptional Turkish citizenship.
