The international lockdown showed us that having multiple passports (or even multiple residences) allowed multiple solutions. Many governments had very different responses to Covid-19, some far better than others.

A second passport can also ensure protection against political and economic challenges in an investor’s country of origin.

There are more than 20 international government designed ‘Citizenship by Investment Programmes’ with St Kitts and Nevis being one of the oldest programmes, running since 1984. A new passport can be obtained in only a few months once your due diligence has been approved.
