Residency and Citizenship

There are several popular destination countries that offer various Permanent Residency programs through investment or business creation, providing clearly defined path to their Citizenship. Depending from the country the residency may be obtained within 6 to 24+ months, while eligibility for citizenship usually comes after few years of residency.

But there are countries, although only a few, that offer a legal path to their citizenship and internationally recognized passport directly through investment or contribution, without any prior or future residency requirements, all in the matter of few months.

    • a substantial business track record,

    • an entrepreneurial background,

    • a business proposal or investment plan.

Under the program, investor can choose one of the following investment options:
    Option A: Invest at least S$2.5 million in a new business entity or expansion of an existing business operation.

    Option B: Invest at least S$2.5 million in a GIP-approved fund.
