Economic Citizenship

Economic CitizenshipThere are many reasons why wealthy individuals should consider a second citizenship. In today’s ever changing world for reasons of security, ease of travel, tax planning and internal politics in a country, many see the need to have a second passport.

We can assist you in legally acquiring a second citizenship quickly and without disrupting your life-style. Several countries are today offering their citizenship to investors in a relatively short period of time. Dominica, St. Kitts & Nevis, Antigua, Grenada and Bulgaria are the main countries, and other options are becoming available.

In these programs there is no need to give up your original nationality. For economic considerations and without residency requirements, you can legally acquire a new citizenship.
