Former President Herbert Hoover once said,
Freedom is the open window through which pours the sunlight of the human spirit.
There is nothing greater than feeling that all the world is accessible to you. No greater gift one could provide a family than that of mobility. While high net worth individuals certainly do not lack the means to travel, they are often held up by unnecessary visa applications and working visa paperwork. This is precisely why many are investing in citizenship. Recent amendments have reduced the required investment amounts in numerous programmes, making this route even more advantageous.
The St. Lucia programme, detailed below in this newsletter, is the most economical option available—one can obtain a second citizenship for as little as $100,000 USD.
In many cases, there is no obligation to visit the country one selects to invest in, but the list of countries one can access without any unnecessary paperwork is almost limitless. Augmenting this convenience, many of the programmes allow for one to retain current citizenship, include dependants, and also enjoy various tax benefits.
While it may be a cliché to suggest that there is no time like the present, one would be wise to take advantage of the ability to secure a second citizenship while these programmes are so highly streamlined for the investor’s convenience.
