  • Either of your parents were Turkish
  • You were born in Turkey
  • You have lived in Turkey legally, for a minimum of 5 years
  • You marry a Turkish citizen and you remain married for a period of at least 3 years

Please note that there do exist some special rules and limitations so you should discuss the matter with an immigration lawyer to make sure you are eligible.
