In recent years a growing number of entrepreneurs and investors have been searching for increased global opportunities. Many have realized that not only their investment portfolio, but their residence and citizenship need to be diversified in order to reduce risk and to preserve their freedom of mobility and security.
As a result, certain countries around the world have specifically designed Citizenship by Investment (CBI) programs to attract international citizens and their families, be they business owners and investors to legally secure alternative residencies and irrevocable citizenships. In return for a financial contribution to the Government of the particular State such as an investment in a real estate or into the society, economy or culture, certain governments have put provisions in place to grant citizenship rights to such investors without the need for residency.
In the case of high net worth individuals this provides a tremendous opportunity for greater personal flexibility often leading to a better quality of life that allows for better estate planning or business advancement and increased freedom for international travel and increased security in times of political instability. Unlike residence programs which only grant renewable residence rights for a specific period of time, the Citizenship by Investment programs provide fast track, direct routes to a second passport swiftly and without major disruption.
Whether an entrepreneur or an international investor seeking a more attractive tax regime or simply an individual looking for a better quality of life for themselves and their family in more politically stable environments, the change of residence to a peaceful and attractive country and the holding of a second passport (or even multiple passports) is the best life insurance policy money can buy. An alternative passport and citizenship for life are the ultimate tools to give you and your family peace of mind and offer increased access to the finest international education and to the very best global, health care systems. Additionally, enhanced tax planning opportunities, greater opportunity to diversify a real estate portfolio as well as stress-free travel without laborious visa applications and greater safety and security for you and family are some of the many benefits that citizenship by investment programs offer.

Absolutely Professional; this is the least I can say about the quality of the service I received from Regency Elite during 8 months of preparations to get a second passport. The idea came to my mind in September 2015 and I received a full legal Dominica Passport in May 2016. The process was full of details due to the fact that I have lived in many countries. During the long process all staff of the company and its sister company “Westkin” were very helpful and supportive. On the top of them was Darina Netopil, the Case Manager who replied to every email I sent regardless the time of the day or how complicated was my enquiry. Darina made the process simple although it is actually a complicated one. After all I feel free holding a second citizenship and a passport allows me to travel to nearly all over the world without visa.

After exploring my available options I opted to settle for a citizenship by Investment programme that would give me greater travel feedoms and the opportunity to live in a more secure country for myself and family. Regency Elite assisted my choosing of a programme that best matched by needs and offered me clear instruction as to the required documents, timeline and paperwork.
