Economic Citizenship Opportunities

  • Many countries throughout the world are offering economic citizenship opportunities
  • Different programs are suitable for different people
  • Increasingly people are assessing their options to improve their international travel options
  • the economic citizenship programs in the Caribbean do not have any requirements for minimum education or language proficiency levels, unlike other countries
  • the term “economic citizenship” refers to a passive, one-time investment in a country that leads to citizenship and a second passport
  • economic citizenship opens up a world of possibilities to high net worth investors

A deVere we believe a person’s passport should not hold them back from achieving their potential in life which is why we created our Residency and Citizenship department. Headed by James Minns, the department strives to offer clients and potential clients increased levels of freedom.

The department is proud to be able to offer clients and potential clients the ability to change their residency and citizenship status, either through a donation or property investment.


What are the benefits of changing your residency or citizenship?

  • Opportunity to reside; work and open a business in Europe and the USA
  • Access to a greater range of education options for your children throughout Europe and the USA
  • Tax benefits; global taxation is becoming an issue for many nationalities, not just on people’s global income but also inheritance tax
