Second Citizenship and Passport

A new second citizenship and passport from a foreign country (obtained for example under a citizenship-by-investment program also known as a 'golden passport' ) is primarily an instrument for improving your personal freedom. 

Holding a portfolio of passports is perhaps the best investment you can make - allowing freedom to travel, do business and live your life to the max without petty rules, arbitrary interference and control!

Besides personal freedom for you and your family, a second or third passport can also open up many new financial and investment opportunities. For your children, a second passport can open doors to otherwise unavailable schools and universities, often at lower fees. 

Is citizenship something you can buy? For sure, the more citizenships and passports you hold, the freer your mobility. Holding second and multiple citizenships is about keeping doors open. Consider Plan B, Plan C, and why not Plan D? This way you can sleep peacefully at night, knowing you and your family have their bases covered.

In this important section of the InternationalWealth portal, we cover the topic of dual citizenship and 'golden' passports in-depth: where to get second citizenship, fact and fiction about dual citizenship, how long it takes to get it and how much it costs.

We offer you a free consultation with a licensed expert on obtaining a golden passport. The professionals of Offshore Pro Group can help you choose the most suitable citizenship-by-investment program for obtaining your second citizenship and/or a 'golden' passport. 

What if your home country does not permit dual citizenship? There are also second passport programs that are not based on citizenship, ideal if your first citizenship does not allow you to hold dual citizenship. Other countries allow you to hold dual citizenship without a passport - this can also bring certain benefits, not least knowing that you can apply for your new passport at any time on short notice, by virtue of being a citizen.

Today everyone who is mass affluent and above has the right to acquire citizenship based on investment. There are various countries offering second citizenship based on investments in bonds, real estate, and business investments, to name a few. In many cases, no travel to the jurisdiction is required - you can pick up your family's second passports at a consulate or have them shipped to you by courier. Visiting is always recommended, however.

In this section (below) you will find information about existing programs offering citizenship by investment, and second 'golden' passports. You'll also find impartial advice on various discounts and innovations, about the advantages and disadvantages of this or that program.

Also, you can always send us your questions at info@offshore-pro.info or reach out by WhatsApp and request a free consultation on citizenship by investment.

Below, you will find a selection of our most interesting articles on all aspects of obtaining a second citizenship and the matching passport. Enjoy!
