An offshore/ foreign company set up is perfectly legal. You can own companies in as many national states as you wish.
The only requirement is that you should comply with your home country’s legislation. Some countries have CFC (Controlled Foreign Corporation) regulations that oblige citizens to declare the ownership of a foreign company to the home country’s authorities.
A foreign bank account is the first step towards risk diversification and asset protection. When you have parts of your financial assets in different accounts, you can never lose your entire wealth. Even if something happens to one of the accounts in one of the countries, you will have money in other banks and other countries.
Before you decide to open a foreign bank account, you have to specify for yourself your purpose: investments, savings, everyday purchases, etc. Besides, you have to consider the geography of your prospective transactions, their volume, and currencies. After you have made up your mind about these issues, please contact our experts and they will recommend the most suitable banks to you.
The next important step is preparation of the application documents and their submission. The application documents must look ideal. Only if they do so you can have a chance to obtain services from a foreign bank. This is why people who prefer predictability in their results apply for our assistance in preparation of application documents and in establishing contacts with the bank.
Today, it is possible to set up a bank account without leaving home via the Internet. You can submit scanned copies of the application documents such as your passport, proof of address, corporate documents for a corporate account, and so on.
Applications for bank services can be submitted via the bank’s website even though foreign applicants are rarely entitled to this opportunity. The application can also be submitted via an intermediary such as Offshore Pro Group. We will inspect the documents for completeness, introduce you to the bank managers, and give you useful tips and hints on how to communicate with them. Our intermediary services will simplify and expedite the process of setting up a foreign bank account.
After you submit the application portfolio you will have to wait for the bank’s decision. If everything is fine your account will be opened, and you will be able to transfer your funds.
When you have the passport of a national state, you can freely live on its territory, visit the neighboring countries, and make investments under lucrative conditions. Not all countries allow dual citizenship but many do.
If your home country allows having several passports, acquiring foreign citizenship is perfectly legal. You can become a citizen of a foreign country via naturalization if you live there permanently for several years. You can also find a foreign country that grants citizenship to foreigners in exchange for investments into business, state funds, or real property there.
Several countries in the world offer second citizenship by investment. They include Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Saint Lucia, Malta, Cyprus, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Grenada, Montenegro, Turkey, Vanuatu, and some others.
Depending on the particular country, you can invest money into a special Government fund, into business, or into real estate there. The required investment amount can be anywhere between US$ 100,000 and 2.5 million euros.
