Each year thousands of people legally buy a passport online to a second country, receiving second citizenship and residency in the process. Acquiring a second passport is a serious and costly matter, and can take months or even years depending on the location you choose. However the benefits of owning second citizenship are multiple, and range from simply enjoying more moderate tax laws to insuring the very safety of you and your family.
Who are 2ndpassports.com?
Established in Switzerland in 2004, 2ndpassports.com was initially created to give clients the chance of safeguarding their wealth against exorbitant tax laws via the legal purchase of a second citizenship in a relative tax haven, although in an ever-changing and increasingly volatile world, the service we provide has also become quite literally a life-saving option for many.
Whether it is the freedom and safety of yourself and your family you are interested in, or being able to maximize your capital, acquiring a second passport will be a huge step in reaching your goal.
Which passport is best for you?
United States vs Europe
While American citizenship to someone outside of the USA might seem to be the Holy Grail, it could be argued that becoming a passport holder of an EU state like the UK, Belgium or Austria would be even more desirable. The United States remains the most powerful and influential nation on earth with the largest of economies, but its tax laws are less than favorable, and its health care can be incredibly expensive.
European passport holders are free to live and do business in any country in Europe for as long as they so wish, can travel throughout the Schengen area unobstructed, and can visit most countries in the world without a visa – while Americans still need visas to travel to many parts of the world, and can only remain within Europes 26-nation Schengen area for 90 days.
Options Outside of the US and Europe
However, you may find that you need neither an EU or US passport, and that second citizenship to another nation may more than fulfil your particular requirements.
The outlay for citizenship in Guatemala is a fraction of that of the UK or US (approx $60,000), but still has many of the benefits aligned to those countries plus many of their own.
A Guatemala passport holder receives visa free access to more than 100 countries including most of the European continent (East and West) including the Schengen area, all of Central America and most of South America. Guatemalas tax rates are among the best in the world, with a 7% maximum on individual tax (compared to 45% in the UK and 59.9% in the US.)
St Kitts and Nevis Citizenship
Quite apart from being one of the most beautiful countries in the world and a highly desirable holiday destination, St Kitts and Nevis is among the more economically viable of second citizenship options boasting exceptionally favorable tax laws (no income tax or wealth tax) while remaining one of the few locations where financial privacy for offshore companies is maintained.
A St Kitts and Nevis citizen can travel visa-free to 80 countries including all of the EU states in the Schengen area, the UK, Ireland and Canada. Citizenship automatically extends to your spouse and your children, and has life-long validity (unlike some countries that require re-application every five years.)
No prior residency is required, and you do not need to visit the country to become a citizen.
Often confused with the much larger Dominican Republic, Dominica is an island in the Caribbean whos nearest neighbors are Guadeloupe, Martinique, St Lucia and Barbados. Like St Kitts and Nevis, Dominica is both a breathtakingly beautiful country and also a tax haven that facilitates offshore corporations, trusts and foundations with privacy-protected offshore banking services.
There are no physical residency requirements for your second citizenship. A Dominica passport holder can travel visa-free to 70 countries including the UK and the whole of Western Europe, much of South America and Africa, Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong.
