Turkey being a transcontinental country is one hot spot of a country which works as a bridge between Europe and Asia. Turkey is a key financial hub.

The biggest advantage of holding Turkey citizenship is to obtain US E2 Visa. With Turkey Citizenship, investor can get easy access to US through the E2 Treaty VISA program. Under this program, the investor can open a branch or office or start a company in USA. It needs to generate a minimum of 2 jobs.
