Cecil Rhodes, the 19th century British colonial era business magnate and politician once famously wrote To be born English is to win first prize in the lottery of life. Rhodes of course made this statement near the height of the British Empire, and while it may seem somewhat of a fanciful and pretentious sentence today, there is of course still plenty of validity to it.
In today’s world being a British subject still has a lot going for it. Britain – particularly London – is a business powerhouse, and the UK economy is the fifth largest in the world, and second only to Germany within Europe. The British education system is among the finest in the world, while British private schools are still the most sought after by the wealthy and the titled.
On a more basic level, the British welfare state basically means that no matter how bad things get, the government will provide for you even if you are not a British citizen. The British National Health service is completely free and the envy of many countries the world over and again also available to foreigners.
Visa Free Travel
Along with Germany, British passport holders can travel visa-free to more countries in the world than anyone else (171). As well as being able to travel passport free through the 26 EU member states in the Schengen Area of Europe, British subjects can travel visa-free throughout North, South and Central America, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
The Allure of London
With a population of 8.5 million, London is the largest city in Western Europe, and as one of the main hubs of business, politics and art in the world remains the most desirable location for the mega-rich. An article in an edition of The Guardian in 2015 stated that London had no less than 4,363 residents worth over £20 million, well clear of the chasing pack of Tokyo, Singapore and New York. Luxury property in London is the third most pricey in the world, and £1 million will buy you just 21 square metres in the city’s most exclusive areas.

We offer two programs for UK citizenship, the UK Entrepreneur Program and the UK Investor Immigration Program, and both are explained in detail on our website. Here is a brief summary of both options.
UK Entrepreneur Program
The UK Entrepreneur Program requires applicants to pass a high-level English Language test before they are granted a visa. The applicant and his dependants (spouse and children under 18) will then receive a visa valid for 3 years 4 months, which can be extended for a further two years. Subsequently, after spending 5 years in the UK in this capacity the main applicant and their family will be eligible to apply for ILR (Indefinite Leave to Remain) and 12 months later for full British nationality.
UK Investor Immigration Program
The UK has an official Investor Immigration Program for individuals with the capacity to make a substantial investment in the economy and development of the United Kingdom. In April 2011, the UK government announced it would give a “red carpet” to foreign investors.
