In June 2014 Russia became the first world power to pass a law authorizing Citizenship by Investment, joining a select bunch of countries throughout the world who literally hand out their passports to those who are A) willing to pay whatever the price might be and B) pass all background checks and demands imposed on the individual by that country.
Russia began issuing second passports in early 2015, with one of the most high profile applicants being boxing legend and former four-weight world champion Roy Jones Jr, who became a Russian citizen in September of that year.
What is Citizenship by Investment?
Citizenship by Investment is a completely legal opportunity that gives both businessmen and asylum seekers the opportunity to gain citizenship and a passport to a second country, while in return generating income and business for the country at hand.
Other countries employing a Citizenship by Investment program include Malta, Cyprus, Dominica and St Kitts and Nevis, while countries including the UK, USA, Austria, Portugal and Spain have similar systems in place where investors can become first residents and eventually citizens.
Why Choose Russia?
Russia has traditionally been a chosen destination for Chinese businessmen and their families, but as one of the world’s oil and gas powerhouses, and with Moscow increasingly becoming one of Europe’s major business hubs, Russian citizenship is also highly sought after by many residents of former Eastern Bloc and Soviet countries.
However with Russia’s Citizenship by Investment program being one of the fastest to acquire yet most affordable (cheaper for example than citizenship to St Kitts and Nevis), and with no pressure on surrendering ones original citizenship (unlike the UK and the US), the Russian second passport program looks set to be one of the most popular very soon.
Benefits of Russian Citizenship
As a Russian passport holder you will be able to travel visa free to 78 countries, 35 via visa upon arrival and nine via electronic visa, which adds up to 122 easily accessible countries.
A Russian passport can be yours within 2-3 months (use 2ndpassports.coms Fast Track service to guarantee an even faster delivery) and has up to ten years of validity.
The Russian tax system is arguably the best in Europe. Corporate tax is just 20%, while individual tax is only 13% for residents (30% for non-residents.)
A minimum investment of $100,000 can secure Russian citizenship, which is a fraction of the $290,000 to become a St Kitts and Nevis passport holder.
