Does a child born on Turkish territory obtain Turkish citizenship?

What is rumored about granting births on Turkish lands to Turkish citizenship is baseless, but there are specific cases in which a person born on Turkish lands can obtain its citizenship, which are:

  1. If one of his parents is of Turkish origin

  2. In the event that one of his parents is applying for Turkish citizenship and it is under implementation

  3. If one of his parents has a long-term work permit that exceeds five years

  4. If he spends the first eight years of his life continuously, then he gets it automatically

  5. If the child’s father buys real estate in Turkey worth at least 250 thousand US dollars

Legal registration of your newborn must be expedited, and the registration process should not be neglected. Registration guarantees the protection of the newborn from losing his lineage and rights. Delay in the registration process leads to the payment of a fine estimated by the Soul Department in Turkey.
