If you are interesting buying a second passport through citizenship by investment schemes, we have some important advice for you.

As most of the countries have tightened immigration and border controls, it doesn’t makes sense buying a passport from a country and you dont know where the country on the map. Sometimes border authorities can ask this question to make sure you hold a valid passport.

Besides it takes only a small effort to have some knowledge about the country where you are citizen of, including culture, language and traditions.  You will also need to have some basic knowledge about population, GDP, widely spoken language and currency used and common flight routes.

It is true that most caribbean countries don’t require you to visit for passport, you also have some responsibility as a citizen. Citizenship is pretty much useless if you don’t establish a genuine link with the country.

We ask to to visit the country atleast once, spend time for holidays just to get to know the country.

Caribbean

The rest of the CBI countries, Malta, Cyprus, Turkey and Bulgaria are quite easy to locate on the map.

How to establish Genuine link?

You can establish genuine link to the country in the following ways

  • Personally visiting the country
  • Voting or working for Govt.
  • Donations to charities or non-profits
  • Paying taxes, healthcare and social security
  • Buying a property or rent to live
  • Becoming a permanent resident
  • Speaking local language, integration to society and culture.
