How to choose your citizenship by investment programme
With a number of citizenship by investment programmes available, we set-out below the most important considerations and steps to choose the most suitable programme for you and your family.
1. Establish MOTIVATION:
Lower taxes, personal and family safety, getting a passport, starting or expanding a business, to be closer to relatives, to find a better school for the kids etc.
2. Establish your RELOCATION type:
Complete, Partial or Resident Tourist.
3. Link your type of RELOCATION to an INVESTMENT TYPE:
For example, complete with active investment, partial with real estate and resident tourist with living expenses.
4. Establish the LANGUAGES you are comfortable with:
Will you look for ease and move to a country that speaks a language you already know, or are you unafraid or eager to learn?
5. Establish your ideal TIMEFRAME:
If your country is becoming increasingly unstable, choose a program with a fast processing time. If you are looking for a great passport to travel with, do not apply to a country where it takes 10 years to become naturalized.
6. Establish the TAX consequences of your relocation:
Determine not only the personal income rate, but how it will affect you specifically. Figure out how much money you will lose or save.
7. Establish your RELOCATION COSTS:
In addition to the tax you will lose or save, factor in rent, cost of living, education, health insurance etc.
8. Establish your BUDGET:
You might not have one, but if you do, many programs and cities can be struck off the list because their cost of living will be too high.
