A citizenship by investment program is offered by a nation’s government and is commonly called economic citizenship. By making an investment in a country’s fund (donation) or an approved real estate project, the investor may be eligible for citizenship in that country. This citizenship provides flexibility, mobility and security. By obtaining economic citizenship and a second passport, the investor will have more options and freedom to travel.
To qualify for the citizenship by investment program you need to make a non-refundable donation to the country’s fund or an investment in a designated real estate project approved by the country’s government. In addition you need to pay other applicable fees and taxes and fulfill the procedural requirements set in place by the government.
Yes in the majority of cases your family members can be included in your application (children, parents, grandparents and siblings). For further details please contact your GLOBAL PASS consultant.
Government approvals and processing can take about 3 to 4 months from the submission of your application.
No there is no requirement to visit or reside in the country for citizenship.
No interview and no language test is required for citizenship.
The passport is valid for 10 years and easily renewed thereafter.
For the majority of programs the government donation or real estate investment is not made until after approval is granted, or the investment is held in a government escrow account, which is fully refundable if you are not successful with your application. The due diligence or legal work fee is non-refundable.
