Turkish Citizenship Application Process

In cases where the applicant French national is under the age of 18 (underage) and (or) lacks the power of discretion, the relevant application can be made by the person’s parent or guardian.
The Republic of Turkey Foreign Identity Number of the French national is taken as a basis in the citizenship application and the transaction is made with it. Therefore, people who do not have a residence and have not obtained a foreign identity number cannot directly apply for Turkish citizenship.

A French national who wishes to acquire Turkish citizenship can be abroad, provided that it does not exceed a total of 12 months during the residence period (5 years) sought pursuant to the new legal regulations. If the sum of the periods spent abroad does not exceed 12 months, these periods are considered within the stipulated residence period. Otherwise, the application will result in a negative result, as sufficient days cannot be reached.
