Turkey: the number of foreign residents is growing
Over the years, Turkey has remained one of the most attractive countries in the Mediterranean for foreign property buyers. Climatic and environmental conditions, the simplicity of the procedure for obtaining a residence permit, the ratio of price and quality of the proposed real estate - all these factors affect the annual growth of foreigners moving to Turkey for permanent residence. According to the Turkish Statistical Institute (TUİK), at the end of 2018, 1 million 211 thousand foreigners permanently residing here were registered in Turkey (at the end of 2017 - 919 061 people). The third place in the number of foreign residents is occupied by the Antalya district - at the end of 2018, 75.822 foreigners were registered here. Recall that at the end of 2017, 57.423 foreign residents were registered in the Antalya district. The increase is 24%.
