How to Buy EU Citizenship for Israelis
This article discusses how to buy EU citizenship for Israelis. This article on citizenship investment programs, which helps clients obtain a second passport, bypasses the traditional and lengthy immigration route. This is an increasingly desirable opportunity for people willing to invest large sums of money, usually a minimum of $250,000, in investing and thereby purchasing foreign citizenship. The sums are much higher for the EU, which we discuss below.
The Best EU Countries for Citizenship by Investment
The best EU countries for citizenship by investment are Austria, Cyprus and Malta. This is because it takes six months to three years to obtain citizenship in these countries with an investment of €800,000 to €3 million, depending on the country. The reason why these countries are so attractive is because the purchaser can live, do business or work, and study in any of the EU countries. Additionally, the passport grants the purchaser the right to travel without a visa to over 150 countries.
Other Ways to Buy EU Citizenship for Israelis
There are other European countries where Israelis can buy citizenship, but it takes longer. For example, Belgium, Portugal, Spain, and Greece offer quick residence permits, which can be obtained within a few weeks up to eight months. They require an investment, sometimes in real estate, of €250,000 to €500,000. After five to ten years of investment and residence, the applicant can qualify for citizenship. With the residence permit the purchaser can travel without a visa within the EU, and after acquiring citizenship, in most cases the purchaser will be able to travel visa-free to 170 countries.
