Citizenship by Investment is a direct route to obtaining a second citizenship and passport by investing in the economy of the applicant country. These programs allow you to legally acquire a new nationality and a second passport within a few months and in most cases without any residency requirements.

Many countries have recognised the numerous benefits that a Citizenship by Investment program has on their economy as it attracts much-needed foreign direct investment that governments can use to improve infrastructure and services. Interested investors contribute a specific sum of money to a government-approved fund and in exchange will receive citizenship and a second passport.

Like diversifying your investment portfolio to mitigate risk, why not mitigate your citizenship risk? Wealthy individuals and families from China, Russian and various Arabian countries have recognised the potential risk of having their funds seized and left with nothing. A second citizenship and passport can protect you and your assets.
