    Yes, you can jointly own a property and use the CBI program in Turkey. However, the value of the property corresponding to each individual should still amount to $250,000. Therefore, in your case, the value of the real estate shall not be less than $500,000. Please note that this answer is specific for you and your business partner; in case of joint ownership by spouses, $250,000 will still be sufficient since one applicant satisfying the minimum requirement could tag along with his/her spouse and children under 18.

    Yes, you can register one property on two names and get the citizenship. But each share's worth has to be more than $250,000. For example, if you buy a property that costs $500,000 and if you register it 50/50 with your partner, you can apply for citizenship for you and for your partner.

    Joint ownership in a real estate is recognized in Turkish Law. Therefore, more than one shareholder may be indicated in the register of title deeds. Joint owners have the same right of acquisition of Turkish citizenship via CBI program as long as both of them meet the minimum requirements considered in the law. So, shareowners would be an applicant of CBI program if both of their shares are at least $250,000 or its equivalent in another currency.
