In this Frequently Asked Questions video series, we answer common questions on the investor immigration industry to provide all you need to know about citizenship by investment and residence by investment programmes.
Citizenship comes with various rights, for example, the right to live and work in a country, possess property there and vote. In many cases, citizens are entitled to social services including basic education and healthcare. Citizens may also apply for a passport; this passport allows them to travel to countries with which their country of origin has signed the relevant treaties. It is difficult for a person to lose their citizenship and citizenship can be passed down to one’s descendants. However, there are also responsibilities and duties attached to being a citizen which include upholding the law and, in some countries, this may include military participation.
