Citizenship Program: GCI a leading global financial consulting company specialized in Citizenship Program and Residence Planning around the world.
Residence permits can be granted to investors and wealthy individuals in most countries, but there are currently only very few states which have clear legal regulations for granting citizenship for economic considerations and without residence compulsory requirements.
Australia, Belgium, Canada, Hong Kong, Monaco, Portugal, Singapore, Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, the United States are examples of countries which offer residence permits to wealthy individuals and investors. Other countries can offer Citizenship-by-Investment Programs and these programs allow an individual to become a full citizen only by investment.
Currently there are only six countries which offer citizenship-by-investment programs that provide a direct access to second passport issuance: Austria, Antigua & Barbuda, Cyprus, Dominica, Malta and St. Kitts & Nevis. Belize and Brazil for example, had previously offered same programs a while ago but had already stopped their programs. Panama second passport program was re-enabled in 2008 with other requires and conditions.
