The decision for Families to join a CBI (Citizenship by Investment) program might be more profound. If the current home country is not secure in view to the political or economic situation, than they might consider to relocate with the whole family to enable all of them a better life in view to security, education and academic studies, health care, political stability, financial and job related independency in view to new business fields. In fact this is a secure exit strategy, a safe haven for now and the future.
Business people are generally looking for an initial point to generate new business opportunities and business fields. They might be more interested in the new Citizenship than in the purchased property, as the obtained passport guarantees Visa free travel in more than 120 – 170 countries (depending on the CBI program), including the EU, US and Canada enables an easy access to commercial markets worldwide. Tax benefits like low or even zero taxation, a straight and simple legal system in regards to Company registration as well as access to secure and confident banking systems including their regional benefits, are the prime reasons why to join one of the CBI (Citizenship by Investment) programs. And of course, in long-term perspective the purchased property will be already an asset with good potential of appreciation in value.
The Retiree is looking for good and safe place to stay long term or to relocate full time and hustle free. Security, a better life quality, good health care, a pleasant climate all year round, easy access to authorities (e.g. to apply for driving license) and banking system as well as the guaranty of purchasing and owning a property legally and for lifetime are some of the major reasons to apply for second Citizenship. Easy and multiple access and no stress to leave the new home country after a certain period and the opportunity to have easy access to many other countries are some more reasons to join a CBI (Citizenship by Investment) program.
