Possible Investment Ways

 The Citizenship by Investment Programme (CIB) is the fastest and easiest way to get a second passport. The process is straightforward: a country will confer citizenship upon you in exchange for an investment in the country or purchase of real estate. There are many different routes toward obtaining a citizenship or second passport:

 

1. Real Estate Investment (Residential property - Commercial Property)

The investors need to purchase a real estate with the value that the program requires. Qualifying real estate projects must be approved by the Government. Investors must hold real estate for the minimum time which the program requires. Due Diligence and Government Processing fees apply. Two or more applicants can apply together with a single purchase, as long as each applicant contributes enough their share to the investment. The government allows for the real estate option because the money goes directly toward investment in the country. The main benefit of the real estate option is that you can eventually resell the property and essentially recoup the investment.

 

2. Business Investment ( Participation in the country’s businesses with main office located in the country - Financial assets of the country's companies)

Investors may choose to invest in a business that has been pre-approved by the Government. Two or more applicants can join investment, as long as each applicant contributes enough their share to the investment.

 

3. Government Bonds

Investments in Government bonds must be held in the applicant’s name for at least 5 years following the grant of citizenship. The bonds must not attract a rate of interest for the entirety of this period. Due Diligence, Government Administration and processing fees apply.

The investor would be provided with a Bond Certificate within 21 calendar days. A certified copy of the Bond Certificate must be submitted to the Government as proof of having made the qualifying investment. Upon receipt of the Bond Certificate, the Government shall process the issuance of a Citizenship Certificate.

 

4. Fund (Investment in commercial property, land development & infrastructure projects)

The donation fund is the oldest and simplest option available. While most people are familiar with the US$ 100,000 price tag, there are actually a few variations on the price depending on if you are applying alone or with a spouse and whether or not you are bringing children into the equation. It doesn’t get more complicated than that. You pay the due diligence and fees, make the donation, and you’re in. You’re done.

A Fund is a non-profit foundation established for the purpose of, inter alia, supporting enterprises to develop significant innovations through the provision of long-term, committed share capital, public/private partnerships, specific governmental projects, and, from time to time, charitable investments in non-profit organizations that deliver services in health care, education, environmental management, youth development, or the promotion of sports and culture.
