Citizenship Programs

Citizenship by Investment programs (CBIs) are government-sponsored schemes that allow foreign nationals to receive Citizen status if they meet the conditions set out by their chosen nation’s government. Each country sets its own rules and regulations for their CBI program, with qualifying criteria varying significantly.

These include making a qualifying investment – investing a minimum amount in real estate, government funds, or company bonds. Several other personal criteria must also be met such as a clean criminal record and a minimum age requirement, among other requirements.  

Successful applicants who meet all requirements receive their passports after a number of months. Citizenship received through a CBI is valid for a lifetime and in many countries can even be passed down to future generations.

Citizens are entitled to live, work and study in a country permanently and unconditionally so long as they meet the necessary requirements. Unlike Permanent Residency, there are no restrictions on employment for citizens, or indeed any other restrictions or limitations. Individuals who receive Citizenship through a migration program are entitled to everything all other citizens are.
