Citizenship by Investment programs are immediate entryways to a second passport wherein Applicants are granted permanent citizenship and passport after making an investment in the citizenship-granting country without the need of residing or visiting the country. The main CBI program options include a non-refundable contribution (donation) or government-approved real estate investment.
Countries who offer citizenship by investment uphold a high reputation of examining applicant’s risk for criminal activities, money laundering and corruption. This process is done through a rigorous procedure called due diligence and to some it may be known as background checks.
Acquiring a second passport from these countries is a life-changing experience as it gives visa free access to more than 130 countries including Schengen territory, UK, Singapore and Hong Kong. It also allows for more business opportunities and industrial advantages.
