Two weeks before the US elections, Donald Trump announced in a Georgia rally: “Could you imagine if I lose? What am I gonna do? I’m gonna say I lost to the worst candidate in the history of politics. I’m not gonna feel so good. Maybe I’ll have to leave the country. I don’t know.”
Trump doesn’t strike us as a person who sticks to his word, yet let’s imagine he will this time. There aren’t many places that will welcome the incumbent President with open arms. During his presidency, he managed to fall out with so many countries that very few of them would be likely to host the American billionaire. It might so happen that he’d opt for a second citizenship to make his life easier. Which passport would he choose them? Astons suggests a couple of solutions to Donald Trump’s issues.
Investor visa to the UK
The incumbent US President may find himself an unwanted guest in London. His every visit was invariably met with massive protests. That said, he is closely linked with the UK: his mother is Scottish and he has business interests in Scotland, including two golf clubs – in Aberdeenshire and Turnberry.
As a US citizen, Trump can visit the UK without a visa and spend up to six months a year in Britain. To run a business and remain in the UK, he would need a visa. The easiest solution for Trump would be the Investor Tier 1 visa that allows investors to obtain British residency in exchange for at least 2 million GBP and apply for the UK passport in a few years depending on the investment sum.
If Trump contacted Astons, we’d recommend our long-term partner Immigration.UK specialising in British Investor visas and other immigration procedures.
Suppose after four hectic years in office Donald Trump decides to rest from his labours. As a professional developer and resort proprietor, he will enjoy the Caribbean state of St Kitts and Nevis with its fantastic nature, secluded beaches and luxury villas. It’s easy to be lost to view in this small country: privacy is valued here as nowhere else.
St Kitts and Nevis’ Citizenship by Investment is available not only for Trump but also for less affluent investors. You can obtain this country’s passport by investing at least $200,000 in property or donating at least $150,000 to the state fund.
The key benefit of this citizenship for the incumbent President is its fast processing – in under a couple of months. If Trump gets started right away, he will have sorted out the documents before January when he is to hand over power to Biden.
