The United States has a treaty relationship with Turkey that gives investors the opportunity to live and work in the U.S. Through the Turkey Citizenship by Investment Program, you can gain Turkish citizenship quickly and easily as an investor. Once you have Turkish citizenship, then you can apply for an E-2 treaty investor visa to the U.S. Although the E-2 visa is temporary, you and your family can apply for extensions every two years an unlimited amount of times.

American Dream™ Law Office works with investors who want to obtain an E-2 visa. To obtain Turkish citizenship, we may need to refer you to one of our colleagues operating in Turkey.
