Discover the Power and Freedom of a Second Passport

Citizenship by investment programmes offer Global independence

Global independence

In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the number of families from across the world investing in foreign citizenship. Politics, economic stability, crime and market conditions are generally the primary drivers for investors looking for the security and peace of mind of a second citizenship.

Families are looking for security, potentially a plan B, as well as education opportunities for their children – they want them to have the freedom to explore the world on their own terms.

For business men and women alike, a second passport also offers the added benefit of global travel freedom and access.  We all have insurance, why not citizenship insurance?

Our clients see the world differently, they are looking for more, a globally independent free life.

CITIZENSHIP PROGRAMMES

There are several different programs to choose from.

Malta and Bulgaria offer access to EU citizenship. The Caribbean islands offer a fast and easy solution to a second passport that gives wide travel access, and Grenada in particular offers access to the USA via the E-2 visa treaty.

FEATURED PROGRAMMES

MALTA

In 2012, Malta’s Individual Investor Programme for Citizenship (IIP) was launched offering EU citizenship for just over 1 year. In January this year, the programme was updated and will be now known as the Maltese Citizenship by Naturalisation for Exceptional Services by Direct Investment (MEIN). Malta’s programme continues to be one of the most attractive citizenship programmes as it offers access to one of the top 10 passport countries in the world (currently ranked 8th).

Malta offers access to one of the world’s top 10 most powerful passports and allows visa-free travel to over 180 countries.

GRENADA

The Grenadian citizenship programme is currently one of the most popular with South African investors. The required investment starts at either USD 220 000 into real estate or a donation from USD 150 000. Grenada and the United States signed the E-2 treaty ‘Investor Visa’ which allows citizens of Grenada to operate a substantial business in the U.S. and reside therein.

A Grenadian passport offers visa-free travel to over 143 countries including the Schengen countries, UK and is one of the few countries to enjoy visa-free travel to China. 

UNITED KINGDOM

The UK Tier 1 investor programme requires a minimum investment of GBP 2 million and the investor can choose one of three investment options. A minimum of 75% of the amount must be invested into the UK either through share or loan capital into active UK companies, or Government bonds. The remainder can be invested into assets such as real estate or deposited in a UK bank.

Investors are required to spend more than half of the time in the UK to qualify for permanent residency (PR). PR will remain in force as long as the holder does not spend more than 2 years consecutively outside the UK.
