Second citizenship or residency allows you to quickly go abroad without visas, buy real estate and open a bank account in another country. In case of danger, a person with a second passport or a residence permit does not waste time obtaining a visa, looking for housing or transferring money; they go to a safe place, as simple as that.

The fastest way to get a second citizenship is to participate in an investment program. The investor’s family members obtain citizenship, too. Therefore, the whole family can relocate at once.

Create your own “safe haven” and ensure your family’s safety

A safe haven is where you can quickly move with your family in case of trouble in the country of residence. People usually buy real estate, open a bank account and keep a financial airbag there.

The ability to go to another country without a visa in any situation, even when the borders are closed or consulates do not accept anyone, is important for having a “plan B”. Worldwide visa-free trips and the opportunity to move abroad for a long time are available to investors with a second citizenship or residence permit.

5 guides on keeping your family safe with second citizenship will help you decide on the country for creating a safe haven. Learn more about
