When it comes to achieving financial freedom and a better overall lifestyle, acquiring alternative residency is the best way to accomplish your goals.

A residence or citizenship by investment programme allows high net worth individuals (HNWIs), entrepreneurs and investors to invest in another country and obtain residence/citizenship there. It is often utilised as Plan B in case of political instability or when it comes to protecting your personal safety and facilitating a better quality of life for you and your family. Since residency/citizenship by investment programmes are available for the family members of the main applicant as well, children can benefit from high-quality education standards and healthcare systems in destination countries.

Citizenship by Investment: Commonwealth of Dominica, Antigua and Barbuda, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, Grenada, Turkey, Vanuatu, Malta, and Montenegro.

Residency by Investment: Portugal, Malta, Spain, Greece, Cyprus, and Hungary

USA: US-E2 Visa and EB-5 Visa programmes

Canada: PNPs, Start-up visa and Owner’s Operator Programme
