FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is citizenship by Investment?

Citizenship by Investment (CBI) is a means to secure a second citizenship and passport in another country by investing in its economy. This can be accomplished through different types of established investment options including real estate, government bonds, opening a business, giving a contribution to the country's developing funds and other alternatives. Investment options and required investment sums vary greatly depending on the program and the type of investment. CBI programs help obtain citizenship much faster than traditional immigration processes.

What is the difference between residency and citizenship?

There are a number of significant differences between the terms "residency" and "citizenship". A citizen of a country has the rights that are not conferred on a resident. Citizens can confidently expect that they will hold their status and rights for life. In addition, citizenship status can be inherited by children and grandchildren. Residents do not have these privileges or security. It is common for residents to have to renew their residency permits by continuing to satisfy the country's legal requirements. These can include holding the initially required investment, maintaining good health and clean criminal records and meeting physical residency requirements. Residency status can be either temporary or permanent, depending on the laws of the respective country.

Why should I consider a second citizenship by investment?

Being a citizen of a country, as opposed to a temporary resident, provides more than just a sense of belonging. It invites you to engage with the country completely, including its economy, laws and investment potential. Indeed obtaining citizenship as a permanent legal status puts you in a position of strength, whereby you enjoy equality with all other citizens of the nation for the rest of your life. You will have the same rights and opportunities as someone who was born there. This includes the right to travel freely overseas and return on the passport of that country, and to take up opportunities available to nationals.
