There is a relatively simple way to emigrate to the UK and the US: a Turkish passport.
Popular Turkish passport
In September 2018, Turkey formally amended its immigration law to allow families to apply for Turkish passports if they spent only USD 250,000 dollars in real estate. Of course, apart from buying a house, Turkish identity can also be acquired through bank deposits, job creation and other modes.
As a result, Turkish house-buying has become popular among foreigners. In the first four months of 2019, foreigners purchased 134,000 real estate units in Turkey, an 82% increase over the same period last year.
The number of house-buying immigrants is soaring. The new law has been enacted for a year and there are 1,000 passports approved and more than 1,700 passports in the trial stage. Applicants are from the United States, Canada, China, Russia, Italy, Australia and so on.
Immigration, not changing residence?
In addition, Turkish passport functions as an immigration means without changing your residence.
Of course, there are also many Uoolu users who have visited Turkey, feel that the local life is really good, and then take their family members with them to buy a house and immigrate.
However, the vast majority of them are looking at the "functionality" of Turkish passport. This "functionality" means that it can give you a ride to immigrate into the UK and the United States.
EB5 or Turkish passport?
In the immigration circle, the vast majority of people will have "American complex". For Chinese, the directest way to immigrate to the United States is to apply for an EB5 visa. But nowadays, EB5 has been experiencing a wave of price rises. The lowest investment margin of EB5 visa has risen to USD 900,000 dollars (TEA area) and USD 1.8 million dollars (non-TEA area).
Not only expensive, but how difficult is it to apply for an EB5 visa? A portal website has published news that EB5 in the United States has been scheduled for more than 16 years, and many Chinese investors have to withdraw from choosing the United States.
Don't want to wait for 16 years? I suggest you consider Turkish passport.
Turkish citizens are eligible to apply for U.S. E2 visa (under the agreement signed by the U.S. and Turkish government), whereas citizens of countries like China, India and Vietnam do not have this right. Therefore, many people say that a Turkish passport + the U.S. E2 visa = immigration to the United States.
As for E2 visa, as long as you have a Turkish passport, the application threshold is much lower, which can be proved by the data below:
In the past 10 years, 74,128 people landed in the United States through the EB-5 project, while 352,076 people landed in the United States through the E-2 visa.
In 2018, 9,602 people were granted EB-5 visas and 41,181 people were granted E-2 visas.
The threshold for applying for an E2 visa in the United States is only $200,000 in investment, which is more than four times lower than the minimum EB5 standard of $900,000.
Look at the number of applications for E2 visas with Turkish citizenship in treaty countries, which is crushing.
Permanent Residency in England is also waving to you.
The situation is similar in the UK. Turkish citizens can apply for special business and work visas in the United Kingdom to achieve the purpose of short-term or long-term residence, living and learning in the United Kingdom, and to apply for permanent residence in the United Kingdom.
The source of this policy comes from the famous Ankara Agreement, which was signed by the European Economic Community and Turkey in 1963, in order to pave the way for Turkey, an "associate member of the European Union". Since then, The UK has become a signatory to the Association of European Communities Agreement (ECAA). According to the agreement of the Association of European Communities, the UK will provide Turkish citizens with legal access to residence.
A Turkish passport holder can apply for permanent residence in the UK after five years of residence on this visa. With the difficulty of immigrating to the UK continuously increasing, a Turkish passport can pave the way to your immigration with wings.
Holding property and emigrating to the UK and the United States
To sum it up, Turkey's immigration policy stipulates that if you buy a house of USD 250,000 US, you can get a Turkish passport for your entire family, no immigration supervision, no requirement on stay, no language restrictions, no proof of funds, no scheduling, and you can also give your children a status of "international student" in the country and get rid of the college entrance examination in China.
Most importantly, the money has been spent on a house, which is not bound to your Turkish passport, because the house can be resold at will after three years. It has a very good conscience in the immigration policies compared with many other countries.
There are many people who not only regard Turkish house-buying immigration as paying for a passport, but also want to take advantage of this opportunity to invest in a real estate and exchange the investment prospects of the real estate for a Turkish passport.
In short, immigration need tens of millions of RMB, but if you want to immigrate to the UK and the United States, and do not want to schedule too long or invest too much money, Turkish passport might as well know.
