During his speech, Mr. Tekçe highlighted the fact that digital migration has become a common practice around the world, in line with the highly increasing demand for remote-based working models after the pandemic. 

Bayram Tekçe also pointed out the government incentive programs offered by countries regarding residency and citizenship applications. Mr. Tekçe discussed the importance of digital migration for the real estate sector, and ways of uplifting possible outcomes by saying “Almost all countries have started organizing programs to attract digital immigrants. When we examine the global investment migration market, we clearly see that the demand is actually focused on residency rather than citizenship. The ecosystem should be more institutionalized and the intermediary institutions on foreign sales should be trained, licensed, and certified. For an investor-friendly ecosystem, bureaucratic channels should be separately considered as investors and other immigrants.”.
