What kind of properties can be subject to sale or promise of sale in the scope of citizenship law?

The following properties can be subject to sale or promise of sale to acquire citizenship through investment:

  • The property in question cannot be registered in the land registry in the name of foreign real persons (including the spouse and children of the foreign person who will acquire)
  • The property should not have been transferred by the foreign real person, his/her spouse and children after 12.01.2017.

  • The property must not be registered in the land registry in the name of the company legal entity of which the applier is a partner or manager.
