Sergey, IT Business OwnerMoscow, Russia
As an IT company owner based in Moscow, I continuously travel around the world both for business and with my family. I was tired of continuous visa applications and found it impossible to fly during the pandemic.
Having decided that is was high time to secure a second passport we looked around for the fastest and most reliable solution. I contacted Astons and received a detailed quote from Konstantin, based at the London office. I was asked about my requirements and was advised to apply for Vanuatu Citizenship as the quickest and cheapest option. In just two weeks, Astons had completed my application, and two weeks later, my citizenship was approved. I went ahead with my investment, and received my passport two weeks after that, making the whole application process a total of 1.5 months start to finish! That same week, I flew with my family from Russia to the Caribbean. Konstantin is an expert, and the team is very professional, so I would highly recommend Astons if you are considering second citizenship and require a fast service.
Peter, IT Company OwnerAged 38, Russia
I turned to Astons for a consultation on Caribbean passports, having seen an article about Pavel Durov and how he obtained Saint Kitts and Nevis citizenship. For me, this was relevant since I travel a lot, live in different places, and have long considered myself a citizen of the world.
Therefore, I wanted to get a second passport for global mobility, and to have the freedom of movement any time I travel abroad. I contacted Alexander at the Russian office, who guided me through all the options and explained the advantages and pitfalls to be aware of. My primary intention was to obtain a fast passport for global mobility, so the Vanuatu Program best fitted my requirements. The application process was smooth, and I wasn't keen to wait for several months for a new passport. What most impressed me was that every timeline Alexander gave me was spot on. Thanks to all of the Astons team for your help, and your excellent work. I could see from day one how hard you all work, with a degree of efficiency, creativity and patience.
Svetlana, Holding Group Financial DirectorAged 50, Russia
My daughter is 16 years old, and so I needed to plan for her university education. She has a more European mindset, and I have always hoped she would be able to study in the UK, as well as being keen to live in and explore Europe myself.
My career is reasonably successful, so I wanted to diversify my life, travel more often and work remotely. Some friends recommended Astons as having helped them obtain Saint Kitts and Nevis citizenship, so I went ahead, and we discussed various options. The ideal solution was to apply for Cyprus citizenship, being a European Union country and the investment being in reliable real estate. We also had the bonus that my daughter would receive Cypriot citizenship within one year - and therefore be able to choose a university in the UK or Europe. The processing was seamless, and I felt surrounded by great care and attention. Astons' experts prepared an exclusive property portfolio for me and arranged a virtual tour. They also carried out the essential checks to ensure the safety of my purchase. Now, with a Cyprus passport, I can live wherever I wish, and my daughter can study in the UK. Astons also helped us with her relocation to London and university selection for which I am especially grateful!
Luan, BusinessmanAged 65, South Africa
Having reached my 60s, I am less involved with my business and was looking to travel and enjoy life with my partner. It is tough to travel with a South African passport, and obtaining visas is difficult.
I also wanted extra security due to the political situation in my home country. I required a streamlined solution with a reputable investment citizenship program. I reached out to Astons, and Igor recommended Saint Kitts and Nevis Citizenship Program, which has been operating since 1984. The team provided full support with the documents and application, as well as payments, and in three months, my wife and I became owners of the SKN passport. We are now free to travel around the world with no visa implications, and are happy to enjoy our new enhanced lifestyle!
Roman, Logistics Business OwnerAged 45, Russia
I was interested in a second passport to gain protection from potential risks and attacks on my business by state inspections and other bodies. I also wanted to invest in property overseas to protect my wealth.
After consulting with the Astons experts, I decided to obtain Turkish citizenship via the real estate investment route. Astons' team prepared a lucrative real estate portfolio for me, showcasing properties in the centre of Istanbul, with 6-7% annual profit yield and the potential to re-sell in 3 years after citizenship had been obtained. The team seamlessly and expertly prepared and submitted the documents, as well as assisting with the property acquisition. After just two months, I received my Turkish passport and would highly recommend Astons to those who are considering second citizenship.
Maria, Senior Executive Investment BankAged 40, Russia
Having a 5-year-old daughter, I was considering relocating to the UK to advance my career and for her education. The UK is known around the world for its education facilities, and after consulting with Astons' experts, I was advised to apply for a Tier 1 Investor Visa.
The company assisted me from start to finish with every step of the way, from collating an investment portfolio to submitting my application. They also provided further assistance with relocation both in finding a place to live and a school for my daughter. In just 1.5 months, we moved to the UK; my daughter is happy here and has already made new friends at school, and our community is charming. My investments are working for me, and I could not be more comfortable then I am thanks to Astons.
