Residence is generally granted to wealthy individuals and investors. Currently, there are a handful of countries offering Citizenship by Investment programs, providing a direct route to citizenship based on investment.
Citizenship by Investment programs offers the applicant and his family an opportunity to legally acquire citizenship and passport quickly, without causing any disruptions to routine life. It may or may not require the applicant to reside in the country prior to naturalisation. Obligatory residence is beneficial for the countries because the investor pay taxes and assists in improving the state’s economy by creating additional jobs or increasing the demand of consumable goods.
WWITPC, in this regard, offers the best programs to its clients.
Some of the benefits of Citizenship by Investment aside from visa free travel, includes access to various markets, transportation and business facilities, a civil society with modern services and infrastructure.
Moreover, Citizenship by Investment waives off the normalisation period for the people contributing to the economy of the country, usually by making a donation to their government or by investing in real estate.
