Istanbul Exports: Decisions and incentives to support the export sector

In recent years, the Turkish government has been providing facilities and incentives to companies exporting Turkish goods to all parts of the world, including support for companies’ projects operating in exportation.

The most recent of these incentives is the decision to reduce the value of exports, which gives the exporting company the right to obtain a green passport for its representatives, a passport that has a longer validity period and more power than the ordinary Turkish passport, and enjoys a prestigious international rank.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has issued a decision to reduce the value of exports that qualify the exporting company to grant a green passport to its representatives from $ 1 million to $ 500,000. The news was published in the Turkish Gazette.

Companies with an export volume of $ 500,000 to $ 10 million over the last three years are entitled to a green passport for one representative per company.

The exporting company, whose export volume worth between $ 10 million and $ 25 million over the last three years, is also entitled to a green passport for two of its representatives.
