Immigration refers to the international movement of people to a destination country for the purpose of employment or permanent settlement. Everyone has their own reasons to immigrate to a foreign country, but they certainly need to abide by the rules and regulations of the country of destination. If it is employment-oriented immigration, you are required to produce proof of the offer of employment. The reasons may vary, and so do the requirements of the immigration office of the destination country.
Every country has a designated office to process immigration applications it receives from various applicants across the globe. In the US, such applications are processed by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. The Bureau of Immigration is the organization tasked with this mandate in India. These offices processes visa petitions, naturalization petitions, asylum or refugee applications made to their respective jurisdictions. These organizations may offer a wide range of immigration services ranging from verification & authorization of employment documents to adjudication of asylum claims, from granting temporary worker status to the granting of permanent resident status and citizenship, subject to fulfillment of the requisite criterion. In some jurisdictions, such bureaus are also responsible for enforcement of immigration rules and deportation of unlawful immigrants. In some jurisdictions, these organizations also undertake activities for assimilation and subsequent integration of immigrants into the wider society. The rules and complexities of immigration are many.
But, besides immigration, there is another legal option to be able to reside in another country and to have full rights of a citizen of that country. This option is “Citizenship by Investment”. Citizenship by investment means that the said country has a program backed by its Constitution that allows people to get citizenship in return for investment in Government approved funds, businesses, or real estate projects. Such citizenship is legal and for life. It can be passed on to your descendants and can’t be revoked by the country granting it.
The added benefits of citizenship by investment are that you can get it very fast, in as little as 3-6 months; it has simpler requirements to fulfill; they permit dual nationality, which means you get their passport as a second passport, and do not need to renounce your existing nationality if your current country of citizenship permits dual nationality. Residency is time-bound, but not so for citizenship by investment. You can also add your parents and children in the same application. Investment can be obtained by contributing to a Government fund which is used for the improvement and development of the host country, or by investing in approved real estate, tourism or infrastructure projects, or investing in approved businesses in sectors identified by the Government as key focus areas.
You can get all the benefits and rights as if you were a natural-born citizen of that country. Some of the most successful citizenship by investment programs are run by Cyprus, Dominica, Grenada, St Kitts & Nevis, Antigua & Barbuda, and St Lucia.
