The top 13 reasons why you need a second passport.

Free yourself from absolute dependence on any country. A second citizenship with a passport is a powerful tool for international tax planning, it gives you extra privacy and travel freedom and very importantly, life saver in times of political unrest, civil war, terrorism, and in other difficult situations. Think of it as a `backup insurance policy`. These second citizenship and residence programs are most sought by wealthy retirees, business investors, entrepreneurs and self-employed persons.

The circumstances vary from case to case but you may need a second passport due to following facts:

  1. Your present passport has to be renewed or extended frequently.

  2. Your present passport could be renounced or cancelled by your Government.

  3. Your present nationality limits your investment and business abilities.

  4. Your present Government levies taxation on your income, assets and capital worldwide.

  5. Your nationality makes you a target for terrorists.

  6. Your Government controls, limits and requires that you register your travelling.

  7. Your passport shows that you are a citizen of an unpopular country that causes a preconceived or negative attitude towards you.

  8. Your nationality forces you and your children to serve in the army.

  9. Your nationality or passport limits your freedom of travelling and you need a visa free passport.

  10. Your state is politically unstable therefore you need a second passport and citizenship.

  11. You would like to change the address of your permanent residency.

  12. You want to insure your family against unforeseeable misfortunes.

  13. High quality education for children at lower cost.

About Cyprus

Cyprus… an enchanted island experience. Cyprus is a stunning natural environment; located in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, framed by three continents. The island’s strategic location has shaped its history and civilization throughout the centuries. Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean with an overall area of 9.251 square kms (approximately 3.570 milies).

 

A fully-fledged member of the European Union since 2004, Cyprus’ infrastructure is of a high standard with excellent utility, medical, vehicular roads, and telecommunications services.  Commuting is made simple via the Larnaca International Airport and Pafos International Airport.  With a strong financial system, Cyprus has established itself as a leading International Business Centre.

Its spectacular scenery and enviable climate, along with European culture and ancient enchantment beckon many to its shores.

 

Most important of all, Cyprus offers peace of mind.  A feeling of security prevails everywhere in Cyprus.This short, but useful guide introduces you to the island of Cyprus, the top choice for buying a property.

 

With its warm and stable climate and convenient geographical position Cyprus is considered an attractive place for residence. At least 320 days of sunshine a year classify the island as one of the sunniest European locations. 

 

Cyprus has recently been designated the 5th best relocation destination in the world by a report published by Knight Frank, a leading independent, global real estate consultancy firm. Ranked by key business and leisure indicators, Cyprus was the only European country alongside Switzerland to make it into the top five – ahead of London, Madrid, and Monaco. 

 

In addition to pleasant weather, the investment landscape in Cyprus is beneficial due to the island’s well-qualified labor force, attractive taxation and a reliable transport and telecommunications system. 

 

Cyprus ranks highly because of its favorable tax regime for new residents, particularly high net worth individuals.
