Description

The denial of consular services and the related deprivations for Turkish citizens living abroad since the attempted coup of July 15, 2016, includes the cancellation and confiscation of passports, the refusal to extend the validity of passports and the refusal to provide nationality IDs or passports to children born to Turkish citizens abroad.
While the full extent of the actions of the Turkish government in regard to the arbitrary deprivation of citizenship is not known, this is certainly an increasingly serious problem. The Journalists and Writers Foundation documented 116 cases of denial of passports and nationality IDs for newborns in 16 countries as of September 2017.
