This article has been written to clarify what the phrase Second Passport means in business and economic terms, and is also a guide to the process of obtaining what is rapidly becoming a must-have document in today’s business world.

The economic passport is not some passing fad it is very much here to stay, and ownership of second citizenship will soon become an essential requirement for any serious business person wishing to maximize their economic and financial potential and be able to capitalize on investment opportunities internationally.

 

How Does A Second Passport Work?

Imagine this scenario if you will:

It’s a staff conference in the manager’s office of a wealthy Middle Eastern bank, and the discussion is regarding a pressing trip to Germany. The bank’s manager looks at Saeed a mid-twenties, up and coming under manager and says Saeed, you go to Berlin, handle this issue for us. It will be good experience for you.

Saeed is overjoyed at this show of faith from his manager, who then says to him You can catch the late flight to Berlin tonight. Saeed suddenly looks perplexed. But Sir, I will have to apply for a visa first, that will take at which point the manager interrupts him. You mean to tell me you do not have an E.U second passport?

Saeed looks crestfallen. The manager turns to Samir, a fellow under-manager, a little older and a lot wiser than Saeed. Samir, you go to Berlin. Tonight please. Of course Sir says Samir, holder of an E.U second passport to Cyprus, and as a result able to travel visa free to more than 170 countries worldwide including Germany.

In a nutshell, that brief sketch illustrates just one of many benefits a second passport to an E.U member state in this case will bring its owner. If you are a citizen of a country with severe travel restrictions (countries in the Middle East and Africa are prime examples of these restrictions) an E.U passport will suddenly grant you a freedom of travel previously unimaginable.

 

Further Benefits Of Owning A Second Passport

Ownership of a second passport to an E.U member state won’t only make travelling a lot easier, as an E.U passport holder you are free to live and work in any European country including the UK and for an unlimited amount of time.

And it doesn’t matter which E.U nation you choose, the same rules apply. For instance, Malta may be one of the smallest member states in the E.U, but ownership of a Maltese passport will allow you to live and work in any of the three largest economies in Europe the UK, Germany or France for the rest of your life if you so desire.

 

Non E.U Citizenship Programs

On the 2ndPassports.com homepage you will also see non-Western European countries that have their own excellent Citizenship by Investment programs, and each is beneficial to the owner in different ways. For example if you are an E.U or a US citizen you already enjoy tremendous freedom of travel and the opportunity to live and work pretty much anywhere you choose. However, what you don’t often enjoy as an American or a European is fair taxes and discreet banking.

Second citizenship to a Caribbean island like Dominica, St Kitts and Nevis or Antigua and Barbuda will allow you to utilize the most discreet, private and flexible banking system in the world, and what’s more, you will pay very little tax for the privilege.
