There are so many traditional and brand new citizenship by investment programmes on the market! Do you know all passport schemes, where you can invest in exchange for a new nationality and travel document? Let’s check the list of the 14 citizenship by investment program that are currently offered.

Citizenship by Investment Programs in the European Union

There are only two official citizenship by investment programs in the European Union. Austria’s CIP scheme was never transparent or open for the public and Bulgaria recently suspended its passport scheme. Greece plans to launch a new citizenship program for investors to compete with the success of Cyprus where applicants must wait until 2021 because the available passports are in process for the next two years.

European Citizenship by Investment Programs

Montenegro launched the newest citizenship by investment program and Turkey operates the most successful such scheme in the world. Moldova stopped issuing passports for wealthy citizens after the new government arrived and gained power in the Eastern European jurisdiction. Albania, like Greece, is also planning to launch a citizenship by investment option very soon.
