Holding a second citizenship or obtaining a permanent residency in another country, are becoming ever more interesting, relevant and attractive for many business and non business people and families. In an ever changing World, with ever growing burdensome regulations and tightening of tax laws, loss of banking privacy due to cyber attacks, intentional leaks of confidential information, as well as political instability and post BREXIT! Entitlement of a second citizenship could result form descent, family roots which may entitle an applicant to a foreign citizenship as a result of his ancestors’ past citizenship, or by making an investment under a particular Investment program in a country which allows citizenship by investment or a permanent residency by investment program.
Having a second citizenship or a permanent residency of or in another country, provides many benefits for the holder (and usually for his family members too), such as visa free travel to many countries, a right to live, work and enjoy social benefits, taxation advantages and free of charge or reduced cost of academic studies, where applicable.
