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
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 free university education or free 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 university, 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.
Citizenship of a member country of the European
Union means you receive the right to live,
work, or study in any EU member country, not
just the country that issued the passport.
