Where to Get a Second Passport by Investing into Property: Tips, Trends and Options


Affluent individuals across the globe reveal an ever-growing demand for Residency and Citizenship by Investment (CIP) programmes. These routes may enable greater mobility, relaxed taxation, personal safety and higher living standards for the international applicants.


One of the most relevant qualifying scenarios for new residents and nationals is property ownership. For example, acquiring a share in a resort will bring along stable ROIs as well as a viable exit strategy after five years of holding the property. At that, the granted citizenship remains in place for the lifetime and may be passed on to the future generations. 


Undertaking a financial commitment overseas may be challenging and requires analysis. Over 50 countries now offer investment migration programmes so it may be difficult to choose. Besides, the applicants should carefully study developers’ portfolio and credentials to make sure their investment will be successful. We at Astons are always happy to help with these choices. Here are just a few of the many options for your attention.


One of the top picks for real estate investment are the Caribbean states - long-term providers of CIP programmes. Dominica, for one, offers seven high-end hotel projects including the brand-new Cabrits Resort & Spa Kempinski Dominica. Grenada also ranks high on the list, unlocking visa-free travel to the UK and the EU as well as the US E2 residence permit for its CIP applicants and their extensive dependants. Grenada is now expanding its real estate selection to satisfy even the most demanding investors.


If you’re looking into Europe, the EU market leaders Cyprus and Malta have a fast and clear immigration procedure in place and a wealth of development projects. The list of options goes on so it’s crucial to clarify your needs and objectives before embarking on this journey. Feel free to contact Astons for any assistance!
