According to data from the UN Population Division, more than 232 million people live outside of the country where they were born. This figure is much higher than it was in the year 2000 when UN data showed that 175 million were not living in the country where they were born. While those numbers may seem high, one must remember that 232 million people only accounts for 3.2% of the world’s population. Only those with the means to move outside of their birth countries enjoy the opportunity to do so. Of course, things have become much easier for high net worth individuals because of citizenship via investment opportunities.
Obtaining a second passport can allow one the freedom to travel for business without the nuisance of applying for a travel visa. Citizenship via investment can elevate one’s career to the next level by allowing for unlimited travel to many countries—an integral part of doing business for global industry leaders. For example, with the Grenada citizenship via investment programme, one can obtain free movement throughout The Commonwealth. One can also choose to operate a business and reside in the United States upon applying for the E-2 Visa programme. Similarly, the Cyprus Investor Programme offers individuals visa free access to 155 countries with the unrestricted right to live, work and study in Europe.
From this perspective, investors who have the opportunity to work and live in another country also have the ability to provide unlimited educational opportunities for their children. Access to top schools around the world is a privilege enjoyed by those who are able to provide their families with the perks of citizenship via investment. When one is not limited to any one physical space in the world, the sky truly is the limit.
