Economic Citizenship: What Is It and Who Offers It?

Are you looking to settle your family or business in a new place but don’t want to deal with the hassles that come along with applying for citizenship and fulfilling residency requirements? As an investor, entrepreneur, or business owner, you will have different needs than someone immigrating purely for cultural or pleasure reasons, and we understand that.

One of the easiest ways to obtain citizenship of a new country is by economic citizenship, a process by which you invest in the host country’s economy in order to obtain a legal right to live, work, and pay taxes in your country.


At Bukh Global, you will have access to experts who know the ins and outs of economic citizenship, should you decide to go this route.

Typically economic citizenship does come along with different sets of rules, such as a set amount of money that must be paid to the government or invested into local businesses, and each country offers different benefits for this type of citizenship. Some also come with a residency requirement, but it is typically short to encourage those whose work requires them to be on the move to invest in their country of choice.

There are many different countries around the world that offer programs like this, many of which offer low tax payments as well as a high likelihood of supporting new business. If you’re interested in becoming a citizen of another country, economic citizenship might be your best bet as a business owner. With many countries to choose from, including options in the Caribbean, Europe, and the South Pacific, there is enough variety to please just about anyone who is looking to settle in a new place, along with potential tax benefits as well as wealth-growing and investing opportunities.

The Benefits of Economic Citizenship/Citizenship by Investment

Many people choose economic citizenship over the longer, more intensive process that is typically associated with obtaining a secondary residency due to the ease and relative speed that it offers as compared to the normal amount of waiting time for a visa or official residency.

These types of programs also benefit the host countries, as they can help to prop up a sagging economy by encouraging business owners, investors, and other wealthy people to invest in their economy. It’s a win-win situation for both struggling economies as well as investors and can lead to huge potential profits for your business in the future.

There are quite a few countries around the world that are using this type of citizenship as a way to encourage wealthy business owners and investors to move their wealth into these economies. Each will differ in their investment requirements and benefits, but they all offer one thing in common–a way to cut down on tax expenses just by investing in a new economy.
