Nigerians Seeking Second
Nigerians are able to access the following citizenship and immigration programs:
The Caribbean Second Citizenship Programs, Caribbean nations like St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Lucia and Grenada offer second citizenship through their respective Citizenship-by-Investment programs. A holder of one of these passports may travel visa free to about 135 countries, including all European Union countries, the UK, Russia, Turkey, Singapore and Hong Kong. Holding a citizenship from one of these respected countries may also make it easier to obtain residency status or study in other countries, and allows political security and makes it easier to open bank accounts in foreign jurisdictions. To qualify, an applicant needs to be of good reputation and make a government donation of at least $100,000 USD after approval of their citizenship application. Approval of a Citizenship-by-Investment application normally takes about 3 months, and all dependant family members may be included in an application, as well as dependant parents. The Caribbean citizenship programs are amongst the most popular of all immigration programs in the world.
Turkey Second Citizenship Program. Citizenship may be obtained in Turkey by purchasing real estate in the amount of $250,000 USD, which must be held for 3 years. A Turkish national may live, work and study in Turkey as of right. Turkey’s geographical location, quality of life and business opportunities makes this a particularly popular program. Turkish citizens are eligible to apply for the USA E-2 Investor visa, thanks to the commerce and navigation treaties in place between the two countries. Approval of a Turkish citizenship application normally takes about 4 months and all dependant children may also be included in an application who are under the age of 18 years at the time of filing an application.
Portugal Golden Visa Program. The Portugal Golden Visa Program allows for residency and citizenship by investment. Currently, the program allows for an investment of 350,000 Euro into either real estate or a government-endorsed investment fund. The investment must be held for a minimum of five years and three visits to Portugal totalling 35 days must be made, after which citizenship may be applied for. Having a Portugal residence visa allows for the right to live, work and study in Portugal and for visa free access to all Schengen countries. For those that apply after January 1, 2022, the investment minimum will be raised to 500,000 Euro. All dependant family members may be included in an application.
