How to Get Citizenship in Turkey?

The question of how to get Turkish citizenship is one of the questions that foreign nationals living in Turkey are trying to answer.

Turkish Citizenship is acquired as a result of the application made by the foreigners themselves or their legal representatives to the provincial Population Directorates of the province where they reside, who have completed their legal life in Turkey or who have fulfilled the exceptional conditions, following the approval of the application by the competent authorities of the State and the Commission.
