Investment Migration

Investment Migration has become a theme of increasing interest among globally mobile businesspersons and investors because of the expansion of globalisation. The growing trend is for wealthy individuals and families to invest substantially in countries other than their countries of origin to acquire citizenship of the countries they invest in. Many countries now offer direct citizenship or residency (with the right to citizenship after a certain period ranging from 1 to 10 years) through investment in the countries. Amongst the numerous reasons that make the Investment Migration popular is the fact that it is the fastest way to become a ‘global citizen’ and it gives a successful investor and his/her family access to good quality of life, especially investors from developing countries like Nigeria.
