Which citizenship by investment programmes are seeing maximum traction for Imperial Citizenship, and why?

We’ve noticed a fascinating trend at Imperial Citizenship. Despite the widespread popularity of the Caribbean Island programs, Malta’s Citizenship by Investment programme has been gaining significant traction from our clients. Malta’s program is renowned as one of the most powerful passports globally, making it an exceptionally sought-after option.

Malta’s citizenship offers visa-free access to over 188 countries, covering an impressive 82 per cent of countries worldwide without the need for a visa. This extensive global reach allows Maltese passport holders to enjoy seamless travel to most nations.

Moreover, Malta’s membership in the European Union (EU) is an added advantage. Maltese citizens can fully capitalise on the opportunity to live, work, and study in any EU country. For many of our clients, Europe represents an attractive destination with its high quality of life, world-class healthcare, and prestigious education systems.

While Caribbean Island programmes maintain their appeal due to affordability and straightforward application processes, Malta’s program stands out as the premier choice for High-Net-Worth Individuals.

Are there any new destinations offering residency through investment that clients are showing interest in?

One of the latest Residency by Investment programs has been introduced by Namibia, although it is yet to gain significant traction among investors, as the primary focus remains on European Residency by Investment options, such as Portugal, Greece, and Spain.

Portugal took the spotlight this year due to initial reports suggesting the potential closure of its Golden Visa programme. This prompted a surge in interest, as individuals rushed to secure Portuguese residency before any program changes could potentially take effect.

Similarly, Greece has also garnered considerable attention, especially after the government announced its intention to increase the minimum investment requirement. This proposed change triggered a surge in interest, as individuals sought to capitalise on the program before the price adjustment.

Imperial Citizenship is also into company formation. What are the main challenges you face in this sector in the UAE?

Navigating the company formation sector frequently presents several key challenges, covering the complexities of legal and administrative regulations, compliance requirements, and the imperative of facilitating a seamless setup process, particularly for clients based abroad.

At Imperial Citizenship, we are well aware of these challenges. To better serve our diverse clientele, we bring to the table an in-depth understanding of local regulations, a network of trusted partners, and a dedicated team boasting years of invaluable experience in company formation.

Our core mission is to streamline this process, allowing all clients, regardless of their location, to concentrate their energies on their business objectives.
