STEP 1: Decide between Residency and Citizenship
Are you looking to become a resident of another country,
or do you wish to apply
for a second / alternative citizenship and passport?
Residency or Citizenship –
What’s the Difference?
a resident of another country means you have
the right to live in that specific country,
but it does not necessarily mean you must live
there year-round. Further, residents are not
automatically allowed to work, to vote, or draw
on the country’s social services, such
as education or health care. Some residency
programs allow the investor to eventually apply
for citizenship, usually after between 5 to
10 years of living in the country. But there
is no guarantee that a citizenship application
will be approved at that time.
a citizen of another country means you earn
all the rights (and obligations) of persons
born in that country. This includes the right
to work, go to school, and benefit from the
country’s social institutions. As a citizen
you will receive the passport of the country,
but you are not required to live there. Applying
directly for citizenship means you are not required
to have permanent resident status for several
years. If approved, you will receive citizenship
and the new passport in a just a few months.
