Why A Second Citizenship is the Best Investment During Uncertain Times
November 14, 2019 - Commentary
Where do you invest your money in uncertain times?
With currencies falling, banks facing a cash crisis in several markets, and the economic and political future of many countries across the globe facing their toughest test in decades, choosing where to invest is one of the hardest decisions you will face today.
It is why investing in one’s future and freedom through an alternative citizenship has become such as powerful choice for those who recognise its immense value.
Faced with an uncertain future, many citizens of countries in the Middle East and beyond are choosing to invest in a second citizenship from a neutral country that grants them greater freedom of travel at short notice, the ease to bank and do business internationally, and future proofs their children’s prospects.
For USD125,000 you can safeguard your family’s choices in troubled times – few investments give you lifelong returns of such enduring value.
Here are the top 3 reasons why a second citizenship is one of the best investments you can make:
Freedom to Travel to Safety at Short Notice
You cannot place a monetary value on the freedom to move your family to safety or give them access to superior medical aid in times of political instability, war, conflict or ill health. Many nationalities have to wait 2-4 weeks to obtain a visa – time that is just not available in a crisis situation or medical emergency. A second citizenship from a country that offers visa-free travel to more than half the world can literally be a lifesaver.
Freedom to Run your Business and Propel Your Career
If your birth nationality requires lengthy visa procedures, it can hamper your ability to run your business, pursue international deals or progress up the career ladder. After all, no international businessman can live without the freedom to travel at extremely short notice!
If you hold a passport from a sanctioned country or one that is considered “high-risk” on international corruption indexes - such as many from the Middle East, Africa, Asia and South America - you may also face increasingly tough banking restrictions that effectively block your ability to transfer money internationally.
Conducting legitimate and necessary business transactions such as applying for licenses, opening bank accounts or transferring money abroad can become a major daily hassle. In such cases, a second citizenship from a neutral country can greatly ease your ability to do business internationally.
Greater Opportunities for Your Children
Investing in a second citizenship from a Commonwealth nation such as Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia or Grenada can have numerous benefits for children looking to pursue higher education abroad. It allows them to travel visa-free for up to 6 months to Europe and the UK in order to check out the best courses and gives them the flexibility to decide if they would like to live abroad full-time.
A second citizenship from a Commonwealth country may also allow your children to enjoy more favourable terms for acquiring and extending visas to seek work after completing their university course.
A Life-Changing Investment
Many people consider nationality to be a lottery – those born with a Western passport are often seen as the winners while those born with a sanctioned passport can face many hurdles in every sphere or their life.
In these uncertain times, investing in a second citizenship can ensure that you and your family are able to broaden your choices and pursue the path you wish to follow with freedom and peace of mind.
