Mobility Options Consulting Limited has said that four Certified Canadian Immigration Consultants have joined the company to meet the increasing demand for a second passport from High-Net Worth Individuals across Nigeria.
According to a recently published index, Nigerian citizens have visa-free or visa-on-arrival access to 46 countries.
The Nigerian passport is ranked 100 out of 116 governments. Separate from those 46 visa-free countries, there are 147 additional destinations where Nigerians need to get visa approval.
Tukeni Obasi, Vice President, Diaspora of Mobility Options, asked, “Have you had to wait months, sometimes longer, for visa approval to attend your child’s wedding or graduation? With a second passport, you can travel visa-free to over 100 countries; go to that conference, travel for business, attend family engagement, or just go on that much-needed vacation.
The best part? Your spouse, children, siblings, and parents can be granted citizenship from a country that has a stable government and primary healthcare benefits among other exciting reasons. These combined benefits make a second passport very appealing to anyone looking to travel with limited visa requirements and looking to ensure their family’s safety and security.”
“In Nigeria, the most sought-after passports come from the Caribbean. Countries such as Saint Kitts and Nevis, Grenada, and Saint Lucia provide many attractive incentives such as the ability to travel visa-free to over 100 countries by investing in real estate, opening your own business, or making a contribution to the country’s sustainable growth fund. Additionally, a single applicant applying for Saint Kitts and Nevis citizenship allows them to apply for adult children under 30 and parents over the age of 55 as well. The application process and approval take between 3 to 6 months,” she added.
With over 35 years of combined Global Immigration Consultancy experience, Mobility Options Immigration Consultants ensure that the initial consultation asks clients all the important questions about their expectations, tables the requirements, and accesses their readiness.
After a successful meeting, the consultants propose the most viable country for the second citizenship based on their business portfolio and individual profile.
A study by the European Parliament has estimated that more than 130,000 people have obtained residence or citizenship in E.U. countries via these schemes from 2011 to 2019.
“With a second passport, you will always have the right to live and work in another country – thanks to the tax breaks, wealth management, additional life insurance, investment for your future, and a protective shield for your family. Through the Canadian Start-Up Visa Program, skilled entrepreneurs with innovative ideas could potentially open up an entirely new line of lucrative business opportunities to pursue,” says Panebi Oboh, Vice President, Canada
Mobility is the biggest motivating factor for those who seek restriction-less travel so that they can freely move around for holidays and trade events without filling out lengthy visa documents and seeking appointments at visa offices,” remarks Ebi Obaro, Mobility Options President. “Governments need Citizenship by Investment revenue to support economies. Business people and industries need it to grow their business. Families need it to find a safe and secure place to live. It’s a win-win situation for every stakeholder involved”.
