Second citizenship i.e. holding a passport for a country other than the one designated to you by the land of your birth – is rapidly becoming one of the most in-demand commodities, both within the business world and among wealthy asylum seekers. As a result, more and more countries are looking to capitalize on this phenomena by opening their borders to foreign investors and initiating Citizenship by Investment programs.
Citizenship by Investment allows an individual to become a citizen and passport holder of a new country as a direct result of making a specific financial investment and following the residential criteria laid out by said country.
Currently the most favored locations for Citizenship by Investment are the Caribbean for its discreet banking and favorable tax laws, and the European Union for the sheer amount of economic and commercial opportunities it offers.
Second Citizenship To An E.U Country
In terms of freedom of movement and the chance to live and work in more locations than any other â€“ an E.U member state passport is the Gold-Standard in documentation. An E.U passport is consistently the most powerful passport on the planet. The criteria to judge a passport is the amount of countries one can travel on it – visa-free. The more visa-free countries available on the passport also equates to the more banks world-wide likely to do business with the holder.
In addition, an E.U member state passport holder is free to work wherever they choose within Western Europe for as long as they want to. In layman’s terms, that means a Greek passport holder is free to live and work in the much larger and stronger economies of France, Germany or the UK for the rest of their life if they so choose.
Acquiring Greek Citizenship By Investment
Officially, the Greek government only issues passports to Greek citizens and those who can prove Greek lineage, or to foreigners who have lived in Greece for ten of the past twelve years. As an alternative and to stimulate investment in the country, they are offering residency on purchase of property within Greece to the minimum value of 250,000. This residency must be reapplied for every five years, but is credited to the holder so long as they remain owners of the property they purchased, or of a new property of equal or greater value.
The Greek government claim that the residency card is valid for travel throughout Western Europe and allows the holder the same options for living and working within the E.U. However when it comes down to the amount of visa-free travel possible, that will still be limited by the quality of the card-holders original passport.
Acquiring A Greek Second Passport
Unofficially, the Greek government have realized that most investors would rather have citizenship and a passport in return for their financial outlay rather than a residency card in return for the purchase of Greek property. As a result, they are now formulating their own Citizenship by Investment program compatible with those of Cyprus and Malta, with some passports already available for purchase to those buyers who go through the correct channels and that’s where 2ndPassports.com comes in.
