The world is a big place. Why limit yourself to living in only one country. In times of uncertainty a second citizenship-by-investment provides the comfort of knowing that you, your family, and your finances can be secured by having an alternative base/home.
To those who are fortunate enough to be in a position to do so, purchasing citizenship is a legal and government approved method of obtaining citizenship and is called citizenship-by-investment. This is available in countries which include the following:
- Citizenship-by-Investment in Antigua and Barbuda
- Citizenship-by-Investment in New Zealand
- Citizenship-by-Investment in Australia
- Citizenship-by-Investment in Malta
- Citizenship-by-Investment in Saint Kitts and Nevis
- Citizenship-by-Investment in the Commonwealth of Dominica
- Citizenship-by-Investment in Austria
The key requirements for each country are, in essence, very similar in the sense that they all require significant investment (ranging from merely US $100,000 to millions) in the respective countries as the primary criteria.
Applications can be made via approved agents. Our personnel are authorized agents for the purposes of investment visas in some of the above countries.
