Safety and security
Since the beginning of the twenty-first century, many countries of the world have experienced political turmoil and unrest, oftentimes accompanied by military action and property seizure. Second citizenship can offer you a “safe haven”, where you can be sure that nothing endangers your life and the life of your family.
By obtaining your citizenship through investment, you not only get a second passport, but you also become an owner of a business/property. This opens new business opportunities for you, which you can easily explore by capitalizing on your extended travel freedom.
Many countries that propose economic citizenship offer more favourable tax rates, which provides room for tax optimization. In many countries, you have to pay tax only for the income earned in that country, with no taxes on global income.
Antigua and Barbuda, Cyprus, Dominica, Grenada, Malta, St. Kitts and Nevis, and Portugal allow dual citizenship. There is no need to renounce your first passport and citizenship.
What’s in it for the countries?
The countries that offer citizenship by investment aspire to attract investments in their economies. For example, you may invest in real estate, land development and infrastructure projects in Cyprus, resort development in Grenada, or invest in the Sugar Industry Diversification Foundation in St. Kitts and Nevis.
