European Citizenship by Investment program have become the most anticipated by majority of Foreign Investors around the globe due the multitude of its benefits. European Citizenship status can be obtained by any Investor who meet the minimum investment criteria and social standards set by the respective govt. authorities.
Despite various residency by investment programs that are being offered in several European countries, at present, there are only two, officially acknowledged, direct citizenship by investment programs in the EU/EEA region on the Mediterranean islands of Cyprus and Malta with little or no residency requirements. Individuals have the opportunity to apply for citizenship through property investments or in combination with a purchase of authorized bonds and an outright contribution to government funds.
These EU citizenship programs stand out as the most desirable, as a European Union passport entitles its holder to be able to live and work anywhere within the EU without time limitation, diplomatic entitlements such as the opportunity to vote or even run for office in European Parliament and also grants its owner visa-free travel to an average of 170 countries worldwide.
