Is it possible to buy apartment or land in Turkey for foreigners?

Before making explanations regarding to this issue, we would like to state that it is not possible to buy apartment or land in Turkey for Syrian citizens.

The subject of obtaining real estate in Turkey for foreigners is amended by the Turkish Deed Law numbered 2644, Article 35. According to the Article 35, it is possible to buy apartment or land in Turkey in conformity with the limitations stated in Article 35.

Firstly, the total amount of the real estate’s bought by foreigners shall not exceed %10 percentage of the related county and one foreigner shall obtain maximum 30 hectares in Turkey.

Example of The International Private Law

Secondly, the foreigner shall not be a citizen of the country that doesn’t allow Turkish citizen to buy apartment or land in their own country. For instance, because the country of Syria doesn’t allow Turkish citizen to buy apartment or land in Syria, Syrian citizens shall not buy apartment or land in Turkey.

Thirdly, if you are the first foreigner who buys an apartment or land in county, the permission from Garrison Command needs to be taken and that process shall take nearly 1.5-2 months. If you are not the first person (that means if any different foreigner did buy apartment or land in the county, you would like to have an apartment or land) it is not necessary to take the permission from that institution and you will not wait for that process.
