Citizenship by Investment (also known as economic citizenship) is the granting of citizenship status to an individual (and immediate family members) contingent upon a specified and quantifiable investment in the country. Most of these programs are structured to make sure that the investment contributes to the welfare, advancement and economic development of the country in which they wish to reside or belong to.
