Several countries have provisions that allow their government to grant citizenship or residency in return for considerable monetary contributions to society, culture or the economy. However, this discretion exercised by governments is rare and the requirements associated with such programs are as strict as ever.

Why Citizenship-by-Investment-Programs (CIP)?
In most cases, a citizenship is attained through birth in a specific territory, through family ties or through marriage. CIP is, however, an opportunity for you to legally and swiftly acquire a new citizenship without the usual burdens of naturalization.

There are numerous reasons for individuals to seek alternative citizenship, such as e.g.

  • Many countries have visa restrictions, making it difficult for citizens of certain countries to travel abroad, putting the individual through draining visa application processes. The application process often takes weeks at a time and requires you to travel to the embassy or the consulate. Moreover, even if an individual takes it upon themselves to overcome visa application hurdles, the outcome remains uncertain and the costs of the application can be high. Also, if you have a passport that is currently at an embassy or consulate for visa processing, a second passport will help you travel during that time.

  • Given the current and reoccurring turbulent geopolitical disturbances, a second (or primary) passport from a small and rather neutral country (i.e. Commonwealth of Dominica) can provide a safe haven for you and your family in times of trouble.
