Why You Need Alternative Citizenship
Are you tired of wasting your time yet again on another visa application for an important business trip? You have to fill out a long form (possibly listing every country you have visited over the past five, or even 10 years).
You may need to travel to a consulate or embassy for an interview. The visa may cost as much as your airline ticket and you may have to send your passport to the consulate or embassy and not receive it back for two or three weeks. You begin to question whether you really need to go on this trip, and you forget about bringing your family along as you would not want them to go through the same procedure as well. Due to political circumstances, citizens of many countries find it difficult to travel abroad and are confronted with strict visa restrictions each time they want to enter a foreign country. This is always a very tiresome procedure, during which the passport on which the visa is stamped is not available, and this can be a significant factor in delaying your travels.
The Benefits of Dual Citizenship
If for some reason you cannot get or renew a passport in your home country (e.g. political instability, civil war, etc.), the right to another passport can be very useful, even critical. Even if you simply lose your passport, it may take some time until you can get a replacement, and having another passport may be crucial. Or as in the example above, if you require a visa and have to send your passport to a foreign embassy or consulate for processing, you cannot travel overseas during that processing time - unless you have a second passport.
Tax Benefits of Alternative Citizenship
For some citizens there are some great tax advantages of dual citizenship. It is important to point out that the acquisition of alternative citizenship does not alter one's tax situation. In every case, you should consult with a specialized tax advisor regarding your individual situation. At Exclusive Hot Properties we can provide that expert tax expertise depending on your nationality
Very importantly, citizenship and a passport, particularly from a small, peaceful country that most people love, can even save your life when travelling and in times of civil war, terrorism or other delicate situations. For good reasons, many international business people from major countries who are active worldwide consider an alternative passport as the best safeguard money can buy.
Investment in the Future
In an ever-changing world, acquiring a second citizenship is a wise decision and an investment for you and your family's future.
Your citizenship of choice is for life, your spouse and children can be included, and there is often no need to give up your present nationality while you enjoy the benefits of a legal second passport. You should, however, check the laws of your current country of citizenship to ensure that you are in a position to legally acquire a second nationality.

At Exclusive Hot Properties we specialize in Immigration, visas, residency and citizenship in every country we sell properties so have a complete understanding of the whole worldwide market place for second passports and residency which can be a pathway to Citizenship overtime.
In reality this is a very complex issue and everyone own individual circumstances will be different but in simple terms you can buy or invest to get citizenship from as little as 100,000 US Dollars to the flagship product of 2 Million Euros to become a citizen of the European Union which is guaranteed within 3 months subject to the applicant not having a criminal record. There are other EU programs that offer Citizenship within 18 months from 270,000 Euros so just a question if you're prepared to wait. Very importantly some programs are by Government Donation, some by Investment in Government Bonds and some by property investment. You will have an investment via property option in every country we sell properties in.
Generally the consideration as to which citizenship or residency program is best for each client will be the Budget of the client, the ease of travel, which countries that person needs to visit on a regular basis and the tax benefits of becoming a citizen of that country. Finally do you ever need to visit the country you are taking Citizenship or do you plan to relocate your family there. Once all these questions and more are answered it's then possible to give the best advice to that client in which country is the best place for you second citizenship. Some countries charge a donation fee and some require property investment and some both but once the exercise above has taken place then that decision becomes much easier.
