Where to Invest

If you are considering applying for a residency or passport under any Immigrant Investor Programme (IIP) there are a number of factors to take into account:

  • The size of the investment required;
  • The length of time it will take for an applicant to become eligible for citizenship;
  • The number of days, if any, that an applicant is required to physically reside in a country;
  • Whether eligibility for citizenship is also extended to an applicant’s spouse or other dependents;
  • Whether proposed or current country prohibits dual citizenship;
  • Whether the proposed country’s passport provides visa free entry to a significant number of other countries;
  • Whether the proposed country has any requirements related to education, or management and work experience;
  • Whether the proposed country has any requirements for military or other service;
  • The costs of living in the proposed country including tax rates and tax incidence;
  • Whether the applicant’s existing country applies an exit tax or other penalties.
