Turkey is an Attractive Destination for Millennials to Retire
People usually described as the generation of Millennials (Generation Y) are those born during the era of progressive technological development – between 1985 and 1996/2000. Unlike the Centennials (Generation Z), millennials still remember playing soccer in the backyard but are well-versed in Internet gaming innovations.
It’s sort of a crossroads between the past and present: that is evident from millennials’ attitudes toward life and work. Such people really appreciate what they have because they remember how hard it was to get. At the same time, they can stay out of touch with reality for a long time, getting addicted to the internet and social networks.
However, with all their positive and negative features, it remains true that Generation Y seeks to provide for their future comforts without spending a lot of money. They often choose between great and expensive and good and affordable.
For many millennials residence and retirement are already a visible future. Many Generation Y retirees (especially those living in post-Soviet countries) are considering the prospect of moving to Turkey and requesting a residence permit or permanent residence there.
Why Do Foreign Retirees Choose to Live in Turkey
First, note that the Turkish government has no specific program for retirees to apply for Turkish citizenship. In order to qualify for retirement and permanent residence in the country, you will need to choose among the existing options for immigration, and here purchasing real estate has long been the first choice for foreigners.
Advantages of Turkey for retirement and residency:
- The cost of living is comparatively low;
- Purchasing real estate that costs $400,000 or more provides access to the Turkish citizenship program;
- The Mediterranean is a great option for living and vacationing, and Turkey is more affordable than Portugal, which is located on the other side of the sea. However, the cost of living in these two countries is dramatically different;
- Turkey allows visa-free stays for citizens of many more countries than Portugal, which is part of the EU;
- Millennials can receive a substantial pension increase when they invest in Bireysel Emeklilik Sigortası (BES), which is a funded pension plan. Our experts can help you choose the right bank for the program;
- Life expectancy in the country is around 78 years.
