Europe has always been an enigmatic, exotic continent. Home to a range of countries with defining and unique cultures, traditions, and way of life, it’s little surprise that a large number of applicants generally choose European citizenship as a primary option. The benefits that come with being a European citizen are also just as extensive and offer a host of facilities that one would be hard-pressed to find anywhere in the world.
On that note, if you’ve been considering citizenship in Europe for yourself or your family, that’s certainly a possibility. We offer citizenship to countries like Malta and Cyprus, both located in Europe and both offering the same benefits as any other EU member country. We also offer permanent residency in Cyprus, Greece, Hungary, Portugal, and Malta, which comes with a different set of rules and regulations. With programs like citizenship through investment however, the benefits are somewhat enhanced, seeing as how you secure the passport for life, as opposed to residency which you need to renew after a while depending on the country.
Here are a few reasons to consider becoming a European citizen:
WIDELY ACCEPTED QUALIFICATIONS
You can enjoy a great deal of flexibility when it comes to making your qualifications count for something. For instance, if you complete a higher education course such as a degree in any one of the EU member nations, your qualification will be accepted without question by all other member countries as well. This is because they know how well their systems are maintained and have complete faith in them.
FREEDOM OF SETTLEMENT
In other words, the ability to settle anywhere else in Europe if necessary. As citizens have unrestricted access to all EU member nations, there is a multitude of countries at your disposal. If you or any of your family members who’ve also received citizenship ever feel like a change of pace, you can go ahead and re-settle. Whether this is via citizenship through investment or through a donation to the respective state, this is still applicable.
PROTECTIONS OF EU LAW
You’ll also be covered by EU law, which will offer you protection in areas such as equal pay, and rights of victims of crime to name a couple. This is more specifically related to the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union. It presents you with the right to be an active member of the Union, which is a significant plus point. If with your application for citizenship by investment you’d like to know what these are, just ask our immigration experts to guide you.
