Economic Citizenship Program And
Best Investment Citizenship Programs
Economic citizenship programs are not all the same quality. In fact, some that advertise themselves as quick passport programs are outright scams. The best ones are very expensive and are affordable for those who have the money. But there is a an economic citizenship program that is located in on a little known island and it is affordable for even some middle class people. In fact the seller of the program will offer it to clients of Freedom Offshore at a price that is less than he normally sells it for. We choose to introduce you to an affordable economic citizenship program or programs and some that are more expensive. We also warn you below about some you need to stay away from.
The Least Expensive Investment Citizenship Program
The least expensive short time to citizenship program is found in a country where spring like weather is normal in some parts of the country. The government of this country is willing to grant economic citizenship to those who "contribute to the country". This requires a visit to this country by the applicant and obtaining two local sponsors who can vouch for an applicant's good standing and character. With the correct local connections (we have found those for you), the time period that it takes to get the citizenship and passport can be reduced or even waived. The passport from this country is good for visa free travel to many many countries.
Dual citizenship is common in this country. Not only does a person receive citizenship from this country, but they may also receive a passport which is valid for five years, a certificate of naturalization, a driver's license, and a national I.D. card. Name changes can be accomplished. Your home country is not informed of your new citizenship either. With this passport you can even obtain a Spanish passport later on by living in Spain for two years. The total cost for this economic citizenship program is quite low compared to some other programs.
THE COMOROS CITIZENSHIP PROGRAM
WELCOME TO COMOROS! The Union of the Comoros is a sovereign archipelago island state. Geographically, Comoros is situated in the Indian Ocean, to the north-east of Madagascar. It consists of many small islands, however only four of them are inhabited: Grande Comore, Mohéli, Anjouan and Maore. At 2,235 sq.km, Comoros is one of the smallest countries in the world with a population of around 750,000. Comoros became independent from France on 6th July, 1975.
COMOROS ECONOMIC CITIZENSHIP PROGRAM - The Comoros Economic Citizenship Program is a legal naturalization program established in 2001 in accordance with the Constitution. The Program is regulated by the Law On Economic Citizenship as of 27 November 2008. The relevant legislation has been recently amended to reflect a clearer focus on citizenship by investment. The local public authority responsible for processing all citizenship applications is the National Independent Committee. According to the law, citizenship is granted solely by decree of the President of the Republic. The official confirmation that you were granted citizenship is the Certificate of Naturalization and Passport.

ST. KITTS AND NEVIS CITIZENSHIP PROGRAM
The Citizenship Act of 1984 governs another very very very expensive economic citizenship program that is available. So this instant citizenship program is even older than the other one comparable to it. Those who apply must invest quite a bit of money in a government approved investment project. There are registration fees for the main applicant and other family members. There is a per person cost. Professional fees are another cost for the applicant and additional costs for other members of the family. The process again usually takes less than 90 days. This passport gives you visa free travel to over 90 countries. Keep in mind that the cost of these programs is always changing. So act now before it gets higher.
THE DOMINICA SECOND PASSPORT PROGRAM
This program has similar investment requirements to the above citizenship program. An extremely large amount is required for investment and you get your passport in a relatively short period of time. We can put you in contact with the most trustworthy agent for this program if you have any interest at all in this very very expensive program.
In maximum disclosure we need to tell you that many of the world's countries are quite frequently changing their own immigration and/or nationality laws, and often year after year, so the information you get from other website promoters of 2nd passports and 2nd residencies might be very outdated when you read it. So please come back to our site and check with us again frequently by email and please stay clear from those who are promoting instant Mexican citizenship and other second passport programs we detail below. Please learn more below about what they are doing and find out the truth from us when you contact us. What some are saying about the Mexican citizenship and passport program is blatantly not true. Please find out the truth in our low priced introduction package where we deliver to you the programs that are legitimate. - - - Discover many programs below that you need to avoid as you scroll down. - - -
Quick Mexican Citizenship And Second Passport Program To Stay Away From
This is what SOME are falsely saying: "Mexican citizenship is brokered through our immigration law firm in Mexico City and is processed through the Mexican Secretariat of Foreign Relations (SRE). The entire Mexican citizenship program can be completed in just three months and requires no travel to Mexico. The cost is just $70,000 for the main applicant, $50,000 for a spouse, and just $50,000 per child under 18." Some are saying you will have to travel to Mexico but they are not telling you the whole story.
Here is the true story about the second passport program in Mexico: "The Mexican SRE (Foreign Affairs) is far more selective nowadays, therefore Mexican citizenship is only on a case by case basis. The best we can do is setup your formal sit-down with the Mexican SRE in Mexico City and the Attorney of Immigration. Then it's up to the client and the SRE Minister herself as to what citizenship offer might be on the table. That being said, she only meets with "accredited investors", i.e. ONE MILLION DOLLARS in assets, so we will have to verify an applicant's bank statements/income statements, etc. prior to scheduling the sit-down in Mexico City." Furthermore, one firm selling the quick Mexican passport was exposed bragging that no one ever received a Mexican passport through their services. So you need to be very careful what firm you work with.
First Second Passport Program To Stay Away From
The program in this country can be completed in just 6-9 months with our government-licensed lead agent on the island, who is the most efficient and professional in the business. And as of early 2015, the process no longer requires a mandatory citizenship interview allowing the program to be completed with no travel whatsoever.
The total cost for this citizenship + passport for one applicant is as follows (additional costs for families and dependents):
Required government donation of $100,000 or else minimum real estate purchase of $200,000 + $30,000 legal and services fees + $7,500 due diligence fees + $4,950 total government application and passport processing fees = world class citizenship and visa-free travel to the EU and UK starting at just over $142,000!
Second 2nd Passport Program To Stay Away From
This program has long been a choice for those seeking privacy with their citizenship and great travel and banking benefits. The citizenship process can be completed in just 6-9 months and does not require a visit to the islands.
There are two options for you to obtain citizenship in this country:
One option is to purchase real estate in the amount of at least $400,000 (single applicant or family), which you are required to own for a five year period of time to retain citizenship permanently. After adding legal & professional fees ($35,000), due diligence fees ($7,500+), government application fees ($50,000+), biometric passport issuance fees ($550 per passport), etc., the total cost of this program ranges from approximately $493,000 for one applicant to over $600,000, depending upon the number and ages of applicants and dependents, inclusive of the $400,000 real estate investment.
There is also the option of contributing $250,000 as a single applicant, up to $450,000 for larger families, to a certain agency in this country, without the requirement to purchase real estate. After adding legal & professional fees ($35,000), due diligence fees ($7,500+), biometric passport issuance fees ($550 per passport), etc., the total cost of the SIDF contribution program ranges from approximately $293,000 for one applicant to over $500,000, depending on the number and ages of applicants and dependents. The special contribution is not an investment, as the real estate option is, and the donation is non-refundable upon completion of the application process.
Third Second Passport Program To Stay Away From
This particular residency and citizenship program is a gem because it is very low cost and you have to go through only a 24-month naturalization process requiring either one or two visits to the capital city to complete (the 2nd visit can be waived on a case by case basis).
The total cost for this amazing investment citizenship is $27,000 per adult applicant, with 50% due as a down payment for the residency (or investor) visa processing. The remaining 50% is due following the 24-month residency process and upon issuance of citizenship.
Fourth Second Passport Program To Stay Away From
This lower cost investment citizenship program is processed under the country's Special Missions Program, which are a series of anti-poverty and social welfare programs that also encourage economic immigration to the country. The entire process can be completed in just 2-3 months and requires only one 2-week visit to the capital city to be fingerprinted and photographed by the police in person. 45-90 days after the one required visit to the capital city, a client's citizenship documents and the passport will be issued.
The cost for this citizenship starts at just $100,000 per applicant.
Fifth Second Passport Program To Stay Away From
We can now also broker citizenship in this special country through the country's brand new "Citizenship by Investment Program which opened its doors in 2013.
The economic citizenship program was modeled after the programs in S.K. and N. so its price structure is virtually identical to theirs, i.e. required real estate investment of at least $400,000 in the country or else a donation to the Country Development Fund of $200,000.
Sixth Second Passport Program (EU) To Stay Away From

Seventh Second Passport Program (EU) To Stay Away From

Disclaimer And Warning:
In most of the economic citizenship and investment citizenship programs, you have just read about, you will read "our" or "we" when referring to the contacts who offer the programs. Those are not us but the contacts we introduce you to via our 2nd Residencies and 2nd Passports Introduction Package. Freedom Offshore Services doesn't sell any Passport Programs or 2nd Residency Programs. We only sell a digital information product with much information in it that will put you in touch with the programs and nothing more. We do not gain monetary compensation for any of the economic citizenship programs you may want to engage in.
The investment citizenship programs described on this page that we recommend as educational information are not black listed or gray area type passport programs, but nevertheless they could still be looked at as being illegal in some nations like North Korea etc. You need to conduct due diligence and look at the laws of your own country prior to making a decision to get involved in any program. So, we can't be held responsible for your choices regarding any of the programs. Even though the various economic citizenship country programs discussed on this website have proven themselves and only good news from those involved in them has come to our ears for many years now, we have no certainty in writing about what the future will bring for the many economic citizenship programs and investment citizenship programs on our website.
Therefore, if you decide to buy the second residency and second passports introduction pkg. from us, you must realize that we have no legal responsibility to force you to decide for one program over another, and you agree to bear all the responsibility for your choice to buy a particular program. We encourage you to consider purchasing the more expensive programs, if you can afford one. Only if you can not afford the more expensive choices, you should consider a less costly program. If you need to purchase a cheaper and faster 2nd citizenship and passport program and it can rescue your freedom, then that could very well be the correct "freedom insurance" for you and yours.
Therefore, you are the judge and jury as you search for and follow the laws of your country! If you are a citizen of a country that has laws against procuring 2nd passports or 2nd residencies, then please think twice about moving forward with an economic citizenship and investment citizenship program. Furthermore, many passports that some hucksters sell on their websites are in fact illegal for anyone to purchase, and those that others sell could be looked at as being a violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act that may be hidden in the legal paperwork of your country of residency and citizenship.
