Citizenship and Residence by Investment (CRBI)

Welcome to Best Citizenships!

Best Citizenships (BC) is a comparison platform for Citizenship by investment (CBI) and Golden Visa (GV) schemes. The roots of CBI can be traced to St Kitts and Nevis (SKN) the world's first country to offer citizenship for investments in 1984. Today, there are 12 Citizenship by Investment (CBI) schemes and over 30 Residence by Investment (RBI) schemes running around the world. The Key difference is RBI schemes offer permanent residence status with path to citizenship while CBI schemes offer instant passports for investors. CBI passports are known as "Gold passports"
