Second Passports & Dual Citizenship - Misc Countries

"Nations have lost their old omnipotence; the patriotic tie does not hold.
Nations are getting obsolete, we go and live where we will.
Steam has enabled them to choose what law they live under.
Money makes a place for them".
Ralph Waldo Emerson , 1861.

Dual nationality has always been held by wealthy people with a knowledge of world history. They know of the dangers of placing an entire future in the hands of politicians. Patriotism might be OK if governments were consistent and let you be free. But socialistic Big Brother bureau(c)rats now have the power to run your life from cradle to grave. Most of them think that all people who own businesses. securities, gold, foreign bank accounts or property are criminals who should be relieved of them and what little freedom they still have left. It is therefore imperative for the security of anyone of substance or ambition to have at least one other passport and nationality.

Every country has its own citizenship rules. Some countries welcome individuals with nationalized ancestors. Others give passports to those of a certain religion. Some for simply buying real estate, or through so called 'Economic Citizenship Investment Programs'. The rules and the opportunities are endless. Though the easiest and - quickest! - way to secure citizenship is through simple purchase - many governments issue passports to gain extra revenue - the question is, which government and at what cost? We know which, and for how much, at any given moment!


Following is our updated overview of our alternative citizenship and second passport programs, with current pricing and government processing periods.

 

Starting with Mexico, we offer a panoply of nationality, residence and passport programs for your perusal. Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you Offshore-Manual

 

Mexico

We can now process Mexican citizenship with just one required visit and no longer two visits. Our Mexican citizenship program is brokered directly through Offshore-Manual's own immigration lawyer in Mexico City (in addition to our legal team in Acapulco where our main office has been located since 2008) and is processed through the Mexican Secretariat of Foreign Relations (SRE).


The entire Mexican citizenship program can be completed in just three months and requires only one brief visit to Mexico City to sign your naturalization papers in person and to receive your new Mexican passport. The cost is just $60,000 per adult applicant, $30,000 for a spouse, and just $30,000 per child under 18. We still bill the process with three invoices of 25% (document verification + apostilles/embassy legalizing), 25% (to confirm the client's requested dates for the visit) and 50% with the final 50% due upon completion (issuance of Mexican citizenship).

 

Mexico permits dual citizenship.

 

Following the approximate 4-month process, with one visit in the beginning of the 4-month process (5 business days in length), and a 2nd visit at the end of the 4-month process (2-3 business days in length), clients depart Mexico with their naturalization certificates and Mexican passports in hand (and a voter ID card if requested as voter ID cards are used as "national ID" cards in Mexico and not separate "national ID cards" like most countries have).

 

Required documents for Mexico are the same:

1) Notarized passport copy*
2) Birth certificate*
3) Marriage certificate if applicable*
4) Last 3-months of bank statements for the main applicant (no minimum balance as it's only for identification purposes) *All require either an apostille or embassy legalizing depending on country of origin. Our document processors complete the necessary attestations for clients.

 

The current price for Mexican citizenship is $60,000 for the main applicant, $30,000 for a spouse, and just $30,000 per child under 18. Offshore-Manual's referral fee for a single applicant is Euro 5,000. For a family of two or more, it is Euro 10,000.

 

Paraguay

Our Paraguay programs are very popular, while also being affordable and very efficient ways of obtaining citizenship. We have our
standard program which can be completed in four years, from start to finish, and requires three visits to Paraguay throughout the process. The total cost of this program is $25,000 per adult applicant, with payments of 1/3 each due at three different junctures of the 4-year process.

Paraguay does not permit naturalization for those under 18 without a native born parent. No exceptions.

 

Offshore-Manual's referral fee for a single applicant is Euro 5,000. For a family of two or more, it is Euro 10,000.

 

Payments for the program are structured with 1/3 down to start the process, 1/3 due upon the issuance of your permanent residency documents and cedula (to confirm the 2nd visit) and the final 1/3 being due just prior to the issuance of your citizenship documents and passport (final visit).

Unfortunately, children under the age of 18 are not eligible for Paraguayan citizenship.

 

Please note there is a $5,000 proof of financial solvency requirement for all applicants pursuing Paraguayan citizenship.

Paraguay (quoted for a national that is on the Paraguayan Ministry of Foreign Affairs restricted list, to include Lebanese, unfortunately).

The Paraguayan MOFA has all nationals from Africa, the Middle East, India, Pakistan, and China (mainland only, not Hong Kong nor Macau) on its
"restricted list".

 

And, yes, nationals on the restricted list have higher due diligence costs. For example, a Pakistani national would incur $40,000 in total program costs for the 1-year expedited process (requiring 3 visits to Asuncion) while an American national or a Brazilian national, etc. would incur only $30,000 in total costs for the same process.

 

Slovenia (EU)

Our expedited Slovenian citizenship program is currently the most cost-effective way to obtain citizenship from the European Union (EU) and an invaluable European passport. The entire citizenship process can be completed in less than four months and requires only one brief visit to the capital of Ljubljana to receive your naturalization papers and Slovenian passport(s) in person. The total program cost is just US$250,000 for the main applicant, US$50,000 for a spouse, US$50,000 for each child under the age of 16, and US$100,000 for each child aged 16 and above plus Offshore-Manual's referral fee. Offshore-Manual's referral fee for a single applicant is Euro 5,000. For a family of two or more, it is Euro 10,000.

 

Venezuela

Our Venezuelan program is processed under one of the country's "Bolivarian Missions" (MisiĆ³n Identidad), which are a series of anti-poverty and social welfare programs that also encourage economic immigration to Venezuela. The entire process can be completed in just three months and does not require any travel to Venezuela. The cost is $95,000 per adult applicant, and just $40,000 per child under 18, plus Offshore-Manual's referral fee. Offshore-Manual's referral fee for a single applicant is Euro 5,000. For a family of two or more, it is Euro 10,000.

 

Commonwealth of Dominica

Our program in the Commonwealth of Dominica can be completed in three months with our lead agent on the island who is the most efficient and professional in the business. Only one visit to Dominica is required, and this can be bypassed if necessary, with additional costs incurred for travel of Dominican representatives to meet with you for your interview. The total cost of this program has increased as of the end of August 2012 to approximately $132,000 for a single applicant, $210,000 for couples, $235,000 for a family of four, $287,000 for a family of five, plus Offshore-Manual's referral fee of Eur 5,000. In addition there are due diligence fees which are quoted on a case-by-case basis.

 

Saint Kitts and Nevis

Saint Kitts and Nevis programs Offshore-Manual can no longer recommend due to recent changes in other government's non acceptance of these documents.
