This scheme is administered by the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Labour under the provisions of the Citizenship Investment Act 2015 and its Regulations 2016.


  1. Convenience – a second passport may afford visa-free travel to jurisdictions not available to country of birth.
  2. Tax Planning– several countries levy income tax on non-resident citizens.
  3. Personal Security– citizenship and a passport from a small, peaceful country is considered by some as protection when travelling, especially in times of political unrest, civil war, terrorism and other situations.
