Since the outbreak of the new coronavirus, now known as COVID – 19, many Chinese citizens have faced immense hardship.
So far, there have been around 45,000 confirmed cases and over a thousand deaths from the flu-like virus. Hospitals are overcrowded, many businesses have been closed for weeks following the lunar new year, there have been reports of food shortages, and citizens have been restricted to their homes even in the most bustling of cities in order to minimize contraction. Though Chinese authorities are working effortlessly to contain what the World Health Organization (WHO) has called an ‘epidemic’, the virus has reached many countries in Asia, Europe and North America.
In fear of further spread, most travel routes to Hubei, the province where the coronavirus started, have been closed. Several international airlines like British Airways have suspended all flights to and from mainland China. Some other commercial airlines are still operating out of airports in the country, but with Hubei province in lockdown, people in that area have no option for leaving other than evacuation flights for foreign nationals.
CS Global Partners understands the destitution of those restricted travel. Our legal experts and advisors specialise in helping clients attain second citizenship to secure a safe future for themselves and their families in times of uncertainty.
Many Golden Visa programs offered by European countries require one to spend an allocated amount of time in that country in order to attain residency. However, the Citizenship by Investment (CBI) Programme in many Caribbean countries allows high-net-worth individuals the prospect to invest in the country and receive all the benefits that come with second citizenship. These benefits include visa-free travel to over a hundred countries and territories, the ability to pass citizenship to future generations, and citizenship of life, with the right to live and work in the country.
Most importantly, most CBI Programmes in the Caribbean have no requirement to spend time there. This means that one can complete their entire application process from the comfort of their own home. In only a short span of time, the dream of second citizenship can become reality. Our CBI application process takes less than three months from start to finish.
Countries in the Caribbean have been running their CBI Programme for decades and are driven to focus on the overall quality and integrity of its applicants. There are two ways to attain citizenship in Dominica. First is through the Economic Diversification Fund (EDF). The EDF is a Government fund that supports socio-economic initiatives on the Caribbean island. The second option is real estate investment in a Government-approved property.
For our clients, CBI is more than second citizenship, it is a means of ensuring resilience and protection in times of difficulty.
