What is a passport ?


Passport is a legal document issued by a country to identity the citizenship of that   person in regarding to their rights and duties.


What is a second passport ?

A second passport is another country issuing a legal document to identity the citizenship of that person in regarding to their rights and duties.


To know why a person can have multi-passport, or is a multi- passport holder, it is better to under what policies a passport will be issued.


A passport will be issued, according to a country law and policy, by:

  • Birth
  • Marriage
  • Business
  • Investment
  • Donation
  • Originals
  • Works
  • Etc.


It is why a person who was born in USA (will have USA passport), but his original is in UK (will have UK passport), and may at final get marriage and live in other country (so will have that country passport). So he or she become multi-passport holder.


Benefit of more than one passport

  • You can have that citizenship right, including work, live, and voting rights.
  • Protection of your personal assets.


Due to competitive environmental changes, countries will promote their immigration policies for the purpose to achieve Economic policies or other policies.

We are not going to mention that all here as you can find from google search through ‘golden visa programmes’, etc, instead we are going to tell you some of the programmes you have to do much more research before you go ahead as it involves whole family decision as your whole family will relocate from one country to another country; or golden visa programmes do involve a lot of investment funds, etc.


Golden visa programmes we don’t recommend client to go ahead include:

  • Golden visa Portugal – Country has been in an economy recession, so government has announced this scheme for the purpose of new fund from overseas to invest in the areas which are almost ruined. Under this scheme, a lot of immigration consultants claim that after you invest EUR 500,000 (now it has been reduced to EUR250,000), you can buy a good new residential house in re-development area (in fact ruined district), and then you can get high annual rental return by letting out. Some even claim that after 5 or years you and your family can apply for EU passport without language test, and without stay requirement. After that, as the house increase in value, you can receive more than full EUR 500,000 investment back at one hand; in the another hand your full family members can receive one more EU passports which enjoy free work, live, and business within all EU Member Countries; together with the very high annual rental returns. Do you believe ? As a professional like me, I do recommend you to check Portugal immigration policies first before making decision or email to me for more advice first before you choose your alternatives. (in fact, my associate who directly termed to re-developer and came to me for re-selling programmes and offer me a good commission but I never sell for it)   
  • Golden visa Greece - Country has been in an economy recession, so government has announced this scheme for the purpose of new fund from overseas to invest in the areas which are almost ruined. Under this scheme, a lot of immigration consultants claim that after you invest EUR 500,000, you can buy a good new residential house in re-development area, and then you can get high annual rental return by letting out. Some even claim that after 5 or years you and your family can apply for EU passport without language test, and without stay requirement. After that, as the house increase in value, you can receive more than full EUR 500,000 investment back at one hand; in the another hand your full family members can receive one more EU passports which enjoy free work, live, and business within all EU Member Countries; together with the very high annual rental returns. Do you believe ? As a professional like me, I do recommend you to check Greece immigration policies first before making decision or email to me for more advice first before you choose your alternatives.

                

Residency and Passport programmes by donations we don’t recommend client to go ahead include:

Domini…….

St.Kitts & ……….


Why ?

First, how you know you can get second passport by donation ?

Answer: You may say, I do by google search, and then I find a lot of immigration consultants who are license from their countries, these passports by donation are real, what problems ?


The problem is how you use these Second Passports.

Around 6 years again, clients are easier to get bank account opened using Domini ….. or …… even I do remember one of the cases is me I helped client to open at HSBC with Domini ……..succeeded. ‘Thank, Stephen, said ‘client’.


Since FATCA, new Eras of Exchange of Information Between Countries, my partner from banks emailed me a list, and saying that……..if clients hold up Domini ……. and open bank with us, ask them to show up First passport, otherwise they must reject to open.


Recent years, some of my clients told me he got troubles during the passport control counters when I showed up my donated passport, the official asked me to show my first or original passport, I said I had this one only I didn’t have other passport, at final he didn’t allow to enter the country, and returned to other countries.


These are the recent problems you never find from other professional immigration consultants websites as they are still making money from selling these golden programmes.


Note I never sell these golden programmes, donation programmes, etc starting from my professional life still today, it is why I can tell.   


If you do search, government can do the same search. If you know what countries can provide golden programmes, or donation programmes, how government immigration departments don’t know ? As a smart businessman, think carefully if you are looking for a second passport or a passport for your purpose, including settlement, etc.


Settlement target to get second passport or residency status

It above is not the reason to get second passport, your reason must be ‘You and your family are going to relocate to the target country which you think the country must be better than you are living now in terms of legal system, education system, medical system, political system, career growth for you or your next generation, right ?’


If so, don’t consider those countries who offer passport by donation of money as I am sure you don’t want to live there.


Also don’t consider those countries who offer residency by real estate CHEAP investment as I am sure you don’t want to live in the house you bought through this program. Cheap means the investment amount is about EUR300,000. Why ? Because

The economy is in economy recession;

If so how they can provide better legal system, education system, medical system, political system, career growth for you or your next generation;

You don’t know local language;

They only claim that

  • Once you hold permanent resident status you can access to whole EU Member Countries, enjoy free movement of people by work, business, and living;
  • You can get EU passports after said 8 years of settlement there; however you need to pass the language test. 


Good countries who provide good quality of live

If you do research, you will know that countries (USA, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, UK, Ireland) in which they offer the terms to migrants to issue resident status are very tight.

We are not here to enclose to you all, as I am sure you will do the research by yourself, as it involves a significant family decision to live to other countries with a huge amount of investment.

Note our schemes.

Please go other pages of our website. We never disclose country name, as we have to protect our clients. You do understand what ‘protect’ means. 

Government immigration or boarder control departments or international banks never get a real list from our website which clients can get a legal second passport for their legal purposes.

Also our settlement schemes are good for those potential migrants who want to settle in the country with a target:

You and your family are going to relocate to the target country which you think the country must be better than you are living now in terms of legal system, education system, medical system, political system, career growth for you or your next generation. If it is correct, please go to other parts of our websites.

I am 100% sure the information you find, and after the consultation with us, you will instruct us to help you.

Note before doing that we do advise our potential clients to do at least 1 page google search (i.e around 15 immigration consultants), ask for information like price, etc, and discuss with your family members before you make a final decision to choose who PROFESSIONAL can help you.
