Investing in Foreign Citizenship for U.S. Immigration Benefits
May 20, 2021
2:00 PM (ET)
Over the past decade, a growing number of countries, including Spain, Turkey, and Grenada, have offered “citizenship by investment.” These programs allow individuals to obtain citizenship for a financial investment into their country. One of the benefits of such programs is that foreign nationals may be able to acquire U.S. immigration status via their second citizenship that may not have been available to them previously. In this intermediate seminar, the panelists will discuss various investor programs and provide an in-depth analysis as to how citizenship by investment may provide additional routes to U.S. immigration.
- Who Applies for Investor Programs and Why
- Understanding Various Immigrant Investor Programs, Including an Introduction into Various Country Programs, Investment Amounts, and the Timeline for Citizenship
- The Challenges of Foreign Investor Programs: Cost, Timing, and Compliance Considerations
- Residency Requirements and Tax Implications in the New Citizenship Country
- Overview of U.S. Immigration Benefits from Secondary Citizenship: Visa-Free Travel and E-2 Investment Visa Transitioning Investment from E-2 to EB-5
