    Turkish Citizenship with the Right to Choose

    Dear visitor, welcome to our Turkish Citizenship with the Right of Choice page. Persons who lost Turkish citizenship due to their parents who lost Turkish citizenship by obtaining a renunciation permit, and who have lost Turkish citizenship within three years from their age (reaching the age of 18), can acquire Turkish citizenship by using the right of choice.

    The loss of Turkish citizenship with the right to choose becomes effective from the date of the Ministry’s decision on the determination of the conditions for the exercise of this right. Foreign passport holders who wish to acquire Turkish citizenship by using their right to vote can exercise their right to choose by submitting a written petition to the governorship authorities in Turkey and foreign representatives abroad. Acquisition of Turkish citizenship with the right to choose does not depend on the decision of the competent authorities. Passing to Turkish citizenship by using the right to choose or leaving Turkish citizenship does not affect the citizenship of the spouse.
