Every country possesses its own immigration laws. Most immigration programs in the world such as EB-5 USA, Canada, United Kingdom, and most European countries require the applicant to reside in the country for several years and comply with further requirements (ex: paying taxes, a language test, etc.) before they can apply for citizenship. This process may yield success; however, it is at the Government’s discretion.
Citizenship Invest specializes in “Fast Citizenship Programs” through which you legally obtain a second passport in a matter of 2 to 4 months depending on the program. Through these programs, you can keep your current nationality while enjoying the benefits of a second one. Our company has successfully processed citizenship applications for families from over 45 different countries worldwide.
Considered gems within the immigration arena, these programs are the only ones in the world through which you could legally obtain a citizenship and passport in only a few months without ever residing in the country.
