WHY OBTAIN A SECOND CITIZENSHIP?

There are over 25 countries with residency or citizenship by investment programs (RCBI) today. The industry is growing at an unprecedented rate and is now estimated to be worth over US$30 billion.

Britain deciding to leave the European Union, the United States Presidential election, and other major events are driving new interes into these programs. But what truly fortifies the growth of RCBI is the worldwide growth of wealth, and people’s desire for freedom to travel, live in multiple jurisdictions, and have options on all fronts, including tax, personal security and lifestyle.

Multiple citizenships provide high-performance professionals like you with a multitude of entrepreneurial benefits, ranging from a more agreeable tax treatment to an overall improvement in your way of life.

Our clients, by and large, also desire two or three bases for a more favorable lifestyle as much as they want it for enhanced tax structuring. Many investors also see their second citizenships as a safety net from increasing turmoil in the world.

When considering the many possibilities for the future having second citizenship makes sense as a backup plan. If you have the means, consider giving yourself and your family a choice by getting a second passport.

5 GOOD REASONS TO ACQUIRE SECOND CITIZENSHIP

1. WEALTH PRESERVATION

Second citizenship and property investment in another country can be an essential component in an international wealth preservation strategy. For instance, the Caribbean has always appealed to the international elite because of its established history of protecting the privacy of its citizens. On the other hand, developed nations such as Canada offer what many would classify as the most attractive lifestyle and citizenship in the world.

2. PERSONAL SECURITY

On the most fundamental level, second citizenship represents security for your family. With its growing food production, and green energy sectors, and the natural ingredients for true sustainability in the future, the Caribbean holds significant advantages as a second home region. Meanwhile, tThe security aspects of countries, such as Ireland and Canada, are self-evident.

3. BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES

Besides some very interesting opportunities based around the principal industries in the host country itself, new business gateways open up to participants in citizenship by investment programs. Since they can travel abroad more freely, they are able to expand their networks into the international elite ‒ a great number of whom spend time in the Caribbean and other second citizenship destinations.

4. FAMILY & LIFESTYLE

Most citizenship by investment programs are available to the family members of the main applicant. This means that investors can secure a better future for their spouse and children. Second citizenships can offer access to world-class health care, education, and a better lifestyle.

5. VISA-FREE TRAVEL

With little or no residency requirements in the Caribbean, qualified investors and their family members can benefit from numerous privileges, including visa-free travel to 130 countries, more or less (depending on the host nation). For citizens of Malta, Ireland, or Canada, residency is required, but the passport travel benefits are some of the best in the world.

DO CARIBBEAN CITIZENSHIP PROGRAMS OFFER VALUE FOR MONEY?

Stability and value are significantly underpinned by the strength of a country’s economy. Many small countries in the Caribbean, particularly the tourism-dependent economies, have been growing faster in the last five years, with GDP growth rates averaging 4%, not including 2020 where there was a contraction because of the pandemic. Caribbean tourism growth has been outstripping world tourism by several points on average for the last decade.

With its stunning scenery and vibrant cultures drawing visitors from across the globe, the region is clearly one of the world’s top tourist destinations. Now, it is becoming an increasingly desirable base for highly mobile global citizens who live across multiple jurisdictions.

The Caribbean has an educated workforce and sophisticated financial systems, and is easily accessible from the Americas and Europe. The region has big potential to further develop its services, logistics, agriculture, the “blue economy,” and creative and digital sectors. While the small size of these countries can prove challenging, it also means they can respond quickly to opportunities for innovation to improve their competitiveness.

More importantly, the application requirements for new citizens are very strict, with multiple U.S.-based diligence companies performing the security work.

When considering the man faces the future can hold, the Caribbean holds significant advantages as a second home region and sanctuary. The growing number of visitors and investors signify how this archipelago of tropical islands has become a first-world paradise and a crossroads of successful, high-performance people.

THE GROWTH OF WEALTH UNDERPINS THE DESIRE FOR MULTIPLE CITIZENSHIPS AND INCREASED PERSONAL FREEDOM.

Despite the financial crisis (and partly because of the resulting quantitative easing, a.k.a. “modern monetary theory”), global HNWI wealth has more than quadrupled in the last 20 years to over US $70 Trillion in 2019.
