In accordance with the European Commission, from June 2016 Turkey has unlimited visa-free access to Europe’s 26-nation passport-free zone known as the Schengen Area. This move (which comes as a reward for Turkey’s voluntary assistance in dealing with the migrant crisis that has engulfed much of Europe) is seen as a vital stepping stone toward Turkey’s inevitable acceptance as a full E.U member state.
Turkey is a Eurasian country of 79 million people that borders eight countries including Georgia, Bulgaria and Greece. Turkey’s coastlines cover three seas, the Black Sea to the north, the Aegean Sea to the west and the Mediterranean Sea to the south. Because Turkey is located at what is seen as the “crossroads of Europe and Asia” it is of major geostrategic importance. Turkey has been a member of NATO since 1952.
Full E.U Membership Imminent
Turkey have been an associate member of Europe since 1963, and have been actively seeking full E.U (then E.E.C) membership since 1987. The UK and France have long supported Turkey’s ascension into the E.U. Germany now also agrees that Europe and Turkey need each other to quote German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
When Turkey are granted full E.U membership, acquisition of Turkish citizenship will become more complex, not to mention more expensive. Turkey will look to cash-in on what will be one of the most in-demand passports by setting up a Citizenship by Investment program similar to those of their Mediterranean neighbors Greece, Cyprus and Malta.
Citizenship by Investment involves a substantial financial investment plus a period of residency The cost of a CBI program can vary from around 100,000 to several million, depending on the E.U country. An estimated price for Citizenship by Investment to a country of Turkey’s size and stature with E.U membership would be approx. 2 million with a period of residency required.
